Baby Love in Baker's Twine



Hello and welcome in to The Open Window.

I'm covering a couple of MAJOR things with this post
as it's NEW RELEASE BLOG HOP DAY over at


and it's my day to post for


I am thrilled to have my project based on these fabulous
colors because the stamps I chose to use worked
perfectly with these colors.

Before we get too far, I want to make sure you came by
way of my very talented friend

If not, we would love for you to start over at
because as you know, our hop includes a grand prize
of all five sets to one lucky commenter!

Our team over at The Play Date Cafe all played with
baker's twine from The Twinery in
Stone . . . Buttercream . . .Denim


I chose to use TCM's beautiful 'Baby Shelf' stamp set to create this card.
I thought the images with the colors for this color challenge worked well.
I recently picked up a few new collections while on a little trip
to the Chicago burbs and picked up paper from Authentique & BasicGrey.
I simply layered my pieces & created a bookmark as an addition.


I used Liquid Pearls in Buttercup & Baby Blue
and of course the beautiful baker's twine.

Here is the set I used . . .


Don't forget, you can get 'Soaring High' for a limited time
as a FREE GIFT w/$50 purchase too!

It's time to get you on your way to the very creative

Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment
(it was
super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote
and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any
recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I'd certainly
appreciate it.
