Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party - Summer!

Hi Everybody!
Today is my design team post for Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas!  Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!  

This linky party theme is:


We invite you to link up all your summer projects. 

The fabulous sponsors for this weeks linky are: 

CDD- One stamp set

Trendy Twine - TT mini pack (pic below)

The original six Trendy Twine mini pack

Designs on Cloud 9: $10 G.C.

Papermill Direct - box of cards

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 :)
