Hop along with Imaginisce & The Twinery :)


Welcome to my blog and my addition to this super fun and exciting hop! This week Imaginisce and The Twinery are teaming up to bring you beautiful inspirational projects and wonderful prizes! We do hope you'll join us all week!

Here is the hop order for today :)
Abby Laubenstein (You are here)

For my project to share, I created this bright and colorful headband which includes several colors of The Twinery twine and also Imaginisce "Making Waves".




I cut out the hibiscus flower bunch from Makin Waves paper, gave it a few areas of dimension and placed the bunch atop the large zigzag orange base flower (also cut from Makin Waves). I surrounded the flowers with sprays of colorful twine - making this piece burst with color! It will surely be a fun addition to any girl's spring or summer dress :)

Both Imaginisce and The Twinery 
are having a prize giveaway!

Three lucky hoppers will win
The Twinery's "I Dream in Twine" (retail $32)

And three lucky hoppers will win
Imaginisce's "Makin Waves" collection! (retail $37)

In order to win, you must leave comments on each participating blog on the hop throughout the week and before midnight (EST), Sunday, April 22. Winners will be announced on each company blog on Monday, April 23rd. Be sure to start at the beginning (Imaginisce blog) so you don't miss out on your opportunity to win great prizes as well as enjoy all the beautiful projects from each designer! :)
