Pocket of Sunshine (Timeless Twine Guest Designer)

Happy Saturday!
I am so excited to tell you that each Saturday in August
I'll be Guest Designing for Timeless Twine!
How cool is that?!

I have a fun project

to show you today using Timeless Twine
Aqua Blue
Lemonade Yellow
Pumpkin Orange



For the pocket cut and Sketch Pen Stitching, here's what I did:

I placed the pocket cut on my software mat and sized it how I wanted it.

Then I highlighted the outer cut (pocket shape) and selected NO CUT.

I then highlighted the stitching lines and changed it from CUT to SILHOUETTE SKETCH PENS.

Removed the blade from my Cameo and replaced it with the Silver Sketch Pen.

Clicked CUT (which really used the pen to draw the stitching).

Left my mat in the Cameo.

Highlighted the stitching and clicked on NO CUT.

Highlighted the outer pocket shape and clicked on CUT.

Removed my sketch pen and replaced it with my cutting blade.

Clicked CUT.

I think it turned out pretty cool!

  1. What a super fun card Janis! I love that lil' Pocket Full of Sunshine and the colors are amazing!

  2. Oh its so cute! That is the one machine I dont have and I really wish I did. I love the lines it drew for you. Twine is so much fun and always adds a fun element to a project. I just never think to use it myself. Maybe I need to keep it out where I can see it
