Trendy Twine Design Day - Family Time Layout

Hello, today is our group design day over at Trendy Twine and this month we are featuring Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine.  This is a great neutral color which adds a fun element to craft projects.  For my project I created a 12x12 double page layout.
This layout was created using A Child's Year cartridge.  This cartridge is loaded with silhouette die cuts and was perfect for my layout.
The waves at the bottom of the layout were created by using the Boundary Waters Fiskars border punch.  I punched out two layers, inked them and glued them together to create some waves.
The "Life's a beach" sentiment is from Docerela Stamps Summertime set and was added to a hand cut flag which was cut twice in different colors.
For my project, I wanted to showcase how twine can be used to accent die cuts by outlining them.  By using just a thin line of glue you can quickly add some twine to outline any die cuts that you may want to highlight on a project.
The girls swimsuit was also outlined and just adds an unexpected element to the layout.  I also added some twine to the photo mats, the title and the pails.
Each of the die cuts and photo mats were also inked on the edges to create some definition.
With a new month we have a new Trendy Twine Challenge for you.  Come link up with us to win some yummy Trendy Twine by creating a project with a beach theme, using Trendy Twine and washi tape.  Also, don't forget to check out the new additions to the Trendy Twine line of colors, there some gorgeous new colors in the store.
