The Twinery and Chic Tags Blog Hop


Hello friends and welcome to a wonderful blog hop with The Twinery and Chic Tags!  I was amazed and the wonderful products that came from Chic Tags and couldn't stop creating!  :)  I pinky swear I will start my PL one of these days but I'm just too overwhelmed right now and can't seem to get going. I have excuse after excuse and right now it is that my craft table is cluttered and I don't have shelves in my closet to put the extra stuff away…  Yes, terrible, I know…  Anyway...
What I love about journaling cards and other decorative die cuts/tags is how versatile they are!  I started off with a kraft card base and added a piece of grid paper, layered a journaling card, some gold shimmer twine, a tag, and some fun, wooden sequins for this card.  I made it with my daughter in mind but it would be perfect for a significant other or a new baby!
I thought this card would be perfect for an engagement or a wedding!  I started off with a sky blue card base wound with gold shimmer twine and added the wonderful ampersand card (I just love that shimmery gold!)  I finished the card off with some fun circular die cuts and some gold sequin trim.
For this final card I thought it would be fun to make a little gift card holder out of a little bag.  I used the sequin and "lovely" rub-ons to decorate the bag and layered it over some pink patterned papers.  I finished the card with a circle die cut, some blossom stripe twine, and a few real sequins. 

Now it wouldn't be a blog hop without some prizes, right?  Well, here are the wonderful prizes offered by The Twinery and Chic Tags for this hop.  Head over to the blogs for more information about how to win (links below) -
