Momenta and Twinery Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! Welcome to the Momenta and Twinery blog hop today!


If you are hopping along, you should have arrived here from Monika's blog. If not, you will want to start at The Twinery's blog so you get in on all the wonderful inspiration and chances to win great prizes. You will need to leave a comment on each blog along the way and also on the Momenta blog and Twinery blog. For an extra chance to win, please leave a comment on Momenta's facebook page. You will have until Friday, February 17th to hop along all the blogs and leave comments. Please see The Twinery blog for all the details.

Now...on to the good stuff!! When I found out The Twinery and Momenta were having a joint blog hop, you can imagine my excitement. I absolutely love The Twinery's baker twine and all their colors are great matches for Momenta product. I really wanted to try to incorporate many colors of twine on my project. So this is what I came up with.


The Momenta paper is from the Kaleidoscope 12x12 Pyramid Paper Pack. The colors from this paper pack are just perfect with the twine. I used Mandarin, Caribbean, and Blossom twine.


I cut the Momenta paper with my Cricut and layered all the balloons with 3-D foam dots to create some dimension.


I was so happy how this turned out, I made another card using the same basic design. But this time I cut a diamond shape on my Cricut with Momenta paper and created a big kite.


This time I used Caribbean, Mandarin, Honeydew, Cappuccino and Pink Sorbet twine. I also created a little banner for the sentiment and used Momenta gems for a little bit of sparkle.


I love both Momenta and The Twinery and pairing the two products was quite easy. They look great together!

Your next stop on the blog hop is Jen Carter. Enjoy!!
