Bookmark swap

I participated in a bookmark swap and so loved putting these together.

The first one is just one of the jumbo clips and then I used a circle punch to punch out the solid cardstock and then the scallop circle punch for the DP, used a glitter brad in the middle and attached it. Soooooo simple. Oh, and I then tied some ribbon on them. I thought they were pretty cute.

The second one I made was something I had semi-cased from someone else. These too were pretty easy until it came to coloring in all those Rileys! I used my cricut to cut the shape out, stamped out my Rileys, layered my paper the same as the cricut shape, used the big SU! eyelets, added ribbon, colored with copics and that was it.

CCC #5

We had a great challenge this time around. It was a sketch challenge but you also had to use ribbon somehwere on your card, a stamp set you hadn't used in at least 3 months and red.

Well, I started out with a stamp set I have never actually used and had been dying to try out! I don't use red very much but...I thought what a great rock card with red, black, and here is what I came up with.

I used stickles all over the card in different little ways. I am actually quite pleased with this card!

Post-It note holders

I was doing two that was for post-it note holders and the other that was for anything I just made more post-it note holders.

I think this was the easiest thing I have ever put together. Basically you just mod podge your chipboard coasters, lay your cardstock on over it and allow it to dry. I then cut them out with a craft knife and do the process again on the other side. Being sure that I put the chipboard coasters between some heavy books to keep them flat. After they are done drying and they are cut out I use the little binder clips, and put the same DP on the little black parts of the clip and adhere them with the glue gun. Add some embellishments, primas or ribbon and I'm done. EASY!
