I received the Marigold collection from PLS and coordinating twine from the Twinery. The colors are simply gorgeous. I created this coptic stitched notebook:
I used covers that had fallen off an old children's book that belonged to my son and stitched them together with the twine. Here's what the spine looks like: 

This twine is perfect for coptic stitching. It doesn't fray while going through the paper and it's plenty strong enough to hold up to my tugging and pulling.

I also created this layout:
I love the word cut outs that are part of the Marigold collection. The watercolor effect that they have is just gorgeous! I wrapped the twine around my banner piece to create a "net" effect. Here's a detail shot:
