When the cat's away, the mice will play... with Twine

Hello Scrapbook Centrale Fans!  Cee Cee is taking a much deserved break for a couple of days,  so we (Erin Morehouse, Claude Campeau, JJ Sobey) are highjacking the blog, featuring a few goodies available at the store - something to hopefully tweak your interest while waiting for all the new CHA releases to arrive.

Today, we're featuring baker's twine - there are currently many colours available in stock, from several manufacturers, including We R Memory Keepers, Doodlebug and My Mind's Eye (among others).

First up, a layout from Erin:

"Best Bedtime Story Ever" - Erin Morehouse

Anywhere you might consider plain twine, or embroidery floss, will be a prime candidate for baker's twine.  Especially on tags, which are still a big trend.

Next up, a layout from Claude:

Claude demonstrates that it doesn't take a lot of twine to make an impact - a loop, or two across the page can create nice movement.

And finally a layout by JJ:

"Movie Date" - JJ Sobey

JJ shows a couple of ways to 'sneak' in a little more twine.  Try wrapping it around a stick pin:

Or zig-zag over it with a sewing machine.  Both are simple tricks to add a pop of colour.
