Clear It Out! and Tic-Tac-Toe

Here's a twiney piece of love for my oldest lovey...

I will enter this one into the following challenges:

  • Clear It Out Challenge: Use twine... glad to have the suggestion to use twine... I, like many crafters, have tons of the stuff.
  • Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge from Stamping Smiles: I love tic-tac-toes... here are my selections:

Supplies and notes:

  • Library card base smooshed into Dylusions in Postbox Red and Crushed Grape
  • Shimmer was applied over the top of the base with Glimmer mist through a Heidi Swapp stencil
  • Simple Stories Polaroid from a die-cut pack stamped with a K & Company date stamp (haha, you should all know by now that I use a proper date stamp daily at work... it's novel to use one from a craft store :))
  • The twine is from We R Memory Keepers
  • I used Amy Tangerine letter stamps in Broken China

  4. This is awesome! This background is amazing and I love how it almost looks like a sunburst at the top of the polaroid image. And what a great idea to stitch across the top. Thanks so much for playing this week at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge! So glad you joined us!
