When I was designing Lime Twist for My Mind’s Eye, I didn’t have time to have anything manufactured overseas, but I BEGGED to get some twine made. I am so in love with twine, but its so hard to find great colors. I got my wish and voila, gorgeous luscious twine. I just got my package in the mail yesterday with all the Lime Twist goodies. I couldn’t wait to take a picture and show you how yummy the twine is! The pictures don’t even do it justice either — the twine is super thick and plush and the colors are fun and vibrant.
There are 12 different colors, including an awesome gray (I’m so in love with gray right now), and each card holds 20 yards. That’s just the perfect amount for a set of invitations or some party gifts/favors etc.
Of course there is more than twine in Lime Twist… I love all the pieces and papers too. Here is a snapshot of some of the diecuts, titles, and stickers in the line.
When I was going through them, all I wanted to do was make a layout with my cute guy… no time for that today, but here is a picture of him in his leg warmers:
He’s 8 weeks old today! Time goes by way way way too fast!
If you are interested in purchasing the Lime Twist Twine, please check with your local scrapbook shop. Here are a few online retailers who also carry the line:

I thought things might slow down a bit when I had baby… what really happened was that I got 2 days off, and then I had to hit some really tight deadlines! So its a really good thing Ollie is a great napper, because I basically worked every second he was sleeping except for a handful of hours at night (like 4 tops). Its been a few crazy weeks, but I finished the projects I was working on! After all that work, I wanted to share a little sneak peak…
Just a tiny little look at the goodies I’ve been designing for MME, they should be releasing at CHA summer in July and hitting stores soon after… I can’t wait to see them all printed and glittered (yes there is TONS of glitter, much to my husband’s dismay)
If you are a fan of MME you may have already seen the release of my new line Lime Twist:
My two favorite parts of this line are the 6×6 pads and the BAKERS TWINE! There are 12 different colors, all in 20 yard lengths, which is the perfect amount. I have not received any Lime Twist yet, but when I do, I’ll take a few photos and post. Here are the adorable 6×6 pads:
If you prefer scrapbooking digital style, I have a fun new release this week:
I had fun creating this very retro looking kit complete with adorable labels and cards, oh and TONS of papers! This will be available at Design House Digital starting Thursday, April 21st, and will be 30% off on release day only!
And just for your viewing pleasure, a few of my freelance projects:
So now, can you see just how busy I’ve been?? Luckily right now I have just a bit of a respite from it all so I can snuggle my cute cute cute little boy:

For those of you who have been wanting to get your hands on my new scrapbooking paper line – Stella & Rose, it’s now available in its entirety at Two Peas in a Bucket.
They are already sold out of the 6×6 pads, but hopefully they’ll restock soon. I got a shipment of it from MME and it is gorgeous, the 6×6 pads are my favorite, I love how tiny the prints are in them. The stamps and brads and pretty much everything else are pretty awesome too. I especially love the little label stickers.
Here are some cards and layouts using Stella & Rose that I’ve spied recently:

Okay I know its been more than a year that I’ve done one of these. But I now subscribe to so many awesome craft blogs, that It should be easy for me (ha!). With the new blog design (what do you think??) I’ve decided to be a little bit more pro-active about my blog. Its been like 15th priority in my life, but I really love updating it, I just never make time for it. So I’m going to steal 30 minutes here and there to keep it updated. An easy way to do this is to celebrate other craft bloggers!
So without further ado… I LOVE cards. I think they are the perfect simple and quick craft. I subscribe to this cute little blog called Note To Self (isn’t that the cutest name??). Lindsay’s cards are adorable but not over-done. She has a great knack for balancing designs and elements but still keeping it simple and sweet. I’m super inspired by her work, so I’ll share a few quick images with you. Check Note To Self out when you have a chance!
How can you do wrong with a big red bow???
And this one is made with MY Fine & Dandy line from MME. Love the flower!I love anything made with Kraft paper. Add some black and butterflies and you’ve got awesomeness.
I love these Christmas trees. I wonder if she cut them by hand? I definitely see an SVG cut file in my future… good thing Christmas is still a long way off!
Thanks Lindsay for all your beautiful inspiration! I hope the rest of you feel inspired to make some cards, or at least do something crafty today!
