My Life in Arts and Crafts Design Team Hop

Welcome to the first ever My Life in Arts n’ Crafts design team blog hop.

I’m pleased to announce that I am on the design team for My Life in Arts n’ Crafts and this is one talented team who have lots of creative things to show you. During this introduction hop we have two special guest designers: Tanner from Tanner Bell Designs and Melissa from Blissfully Chaotic. How much fun is that!

There are some amazing products in the My Life in Arts and Crafts Store. The store carries some of your favorite items such as colored twine but there are new things to make your craft ideas pop and I'm sure once you try these products they also will become your new favorite things.

This is a two day hop so make sure you come back tomorrow. Today we are focusing on fabulous colored Jute twine. Jute comes in all the colors of the rainbow and works on projects that range from fancy to fanciful.
It comes in 9 fabulous colors: Pink, Purple, Navy, Ivory, Natural, Green, Olive, Black, and Red.

I am using the green on my project.

The bottom card shows the truer colors of the card but the top one shows the green jute better. It was so easy to make. I used double sided ribbon tape and ran it across the embossed part of the card. I then ran the jute back and forth cutting each end. It was easy and is so beautiful looking on this card. It gives the card a vintage feel to me.

Check out the other great craft ideas in this hop and then head on over to My Life in Arts and Crafts to see all the marvelous colors of jute and other products available.

Make sure to leave a comment on each blog because our hostess and owner of My Life in Arts and Crafts,  Jessi, is giving away some products from her store.

Thank you for stopping by and now please hop on over to Lissa Marie's blog.
