The more you link up, the better chance you have to win. Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along. Here is what I created for this linky party:
*Craftin' Desert Divas - Summer Lovin' stamp set
*Miss Kate Cuttables - Crab with Beach Ball SVG
*What a fun way to hand out beach supplies!
*I loved the way this crab turned out!
*I hand trimmed the black piece for his mouth, since the one that
came on the cut was covered up by the twine :)
I wanted to share a couple of tips for adhering twine:
*I recommend using a Xyron machine to cover your piece with adhesive. This makes is SOOO much easier to just lay your twine down, and swirl it into a circle.
*You can also run your twine through the Xyron! This made it easier to add the twine around the crabs sunglasses.
I used the Fun in the Sun sentiment
from this must have stamp set!
Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!! TFL, and hope everyone has a chance to craft today :)
