Trendy Trios: Triangles {video}

This month at Two Peas, our focus is on shapes.  Who knew shapes could be so cool!?!  (Check out all of these trendy scrappy goodness!)

I had a lot of fun playing with shapes in this month's Trendy Trios video!  Triangles are hot, hot, HOT right now & there are a million different ways to use them.

In my trio of cards, I used stamps, masks, die cuts, washi tape & embellishments... all with the central theme of triangles. - And that's just scratching the surface of what you can do with this simple shape.

You can watch the video below or directly on YouTube.

Here are the projects featured on my video.  You can find all of the supplies used & lots of other amazing triangle-themed products by clicking here.

I kind of flipped when I saw this doily die cut from Maggie Holmes.  It's just the most gorgeous color... and the triangle die-cuts in the center frame this sentiment perfectly!

I also discovered that Maggie's washi tape sheet makes a pretty cool transparent accent when trimmed just right.

This one is packed with triangle goodness.  :)  I love the triangle mask & it looks so cool in person with the Mister Huey's Shine mist.  The triangle stamps & banners were another Studio Calico "triangle find."  Triangle banners?!?  Doubly trendy!  That hand-written font from this SC stamp set just rocks, btw.

And I can't fail to mention this polka-dot preppy horse rub-on by Dear Lizzy.  I wish I had 5000 of them.  I love them that much.

And last but not least, how cute is this elephant die-cut from Glitz Designs?!?  I tied a little string on his trunk.  He's forgetful sometimes, you see?

People seem to be freaking out about stitching wood veneer with their machines.  ;)  I promise - no machine was injured during this video production.  The key is to take it slow.  If you look closely, the stitches actually go around each section of the letters, hugging them in place.  If you pierce through them, there's a good chance they'll split because they are so narrow & delicate.  I have, however, sewn right through larger wood veneer pieces with no trouble at all.

Thanks for taking a peek at my projects!  I had so much fun creating them & I hope you'll give triangles a try on your next project.  :)

  1. I *loved* this month's trend topic and I am going to make an attempt to try incorporating triangles into more of my cards. Thank you, Julie! :)
