This week's Pimp-Out/Showcase belongs to Jodi from Talking Twine and Trim.
Deezy, thanks for this opportunity! First my name is Jodi and I am the happy owner of Talking Twine and Trim found here (email@example.com) and Just a Bit of Paper found here (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Now like most shops, I have a facebook page and about every other week have a give away. Please come by and like my page. I often showcase my products and have had "guest" designers here and there. Look for talking twine and trim on facebook. Last I have been a member of the Creative team at Scrapbookdoodle.com for years. I love designing for Yvonne who carries loads
Enough of the self promotion let’s talk packaging, events and scrapping. I got into my little shop with "NEEDING" some bakers twine one late night while scrapping. I wasn't happy with my colors I had, so I surfed the net and the next week I was selling it on etsy. I was hooked!!!! I love all things cotton and I love color. It was the beginning of the beginning. I am also a FAN of tags so the bakers twine is just the answer to many of my tag issues. Seam binding came next, yes, I LOVE tying things up I guess. I have dyed it, hand scrunched it and just tied it up. I love seam binding and baker twine combined. Please, don't ask me my favorite color as it changes by the hour. Next came bags and they have taken me to a little old time bakery on Main St. here in AZ. They were always white so when I saw patterns and colors I knew these were perfect for me. I have made 2 mini albums using these bags as a base. They were super cute.
I "heart" washi. Easy, quick and full of color. Yes I love colors and patterns.
I have been scrapping for 10 plus years. My style is... Well, I don't know. But a few years ago I stopped fighting it and decided to embrace my style. I am happy with it. It is always layered, usually has a tag somewhere and is always attached with twine. I tend to like white and cream backgrounds.
I have four adult kids, 1 fantastic daugther-in-law, and the CUTEST little granddaughter in the world. You may see a layout about her later in the week. I have lived in Arizona most of my life though I love the mountains they are just a few hours away. I have traveled the world and let me say there are loads of places yet to visit.
