And now for my projects....

I decided to make some back to school bookmarks for my 5 grandkids.
Today I am sharing the 2 bookmarks I made for my 2 grandsons.

For this first one I used All Star Sports.
In the past, a few of my teammates have creating
backgrounds using multiple stamps, so I though
I would give it a try.  The soccer ball is from Miss Kate's Cuttable's
Papers are from Doodlebug
For this last one, I used Gotta Wear Shades
I just love these adorable bears!!  I used
the free SVG files to cut out the bear
and the background for the sentiment.
I added some color to my bear using chalk
and even gave him a little bit of a sunburn!!
Papers used on this one are from Echo Park
I tried to make these all super simple and
not bulky.  It was really hard for me to resist
using foam dots to pop up the images!!
 
Next up on the Line Up is guest designer Ilda.
 Winners will be picked from a different blog each day,
so the more you comment the more chances you have to win.

And now for my projects....

I decided to make some back to school bookmarks for my 5 grandkids.
The first 3 are for my granddaughters.  For each bookmark
I used both a sentiment and an image for the new stamps.

For this first one I used School Zone.
I paper pieced the apple and worm.
For this one I used Blooming for You.
I used the free SVG file for both the sentiment
and the bear, I even created an offset.
I paper pieced the flowers and the bears muzzle.
For this last one, I used the super sweet Freebie stamp
everyone will receive with a minimum order of 2 stamps sets.
I stamped the bear on watercolor paper and used
watercolor pencils and a water brush to color him in.
All paper used on all 3 bookmarks is Doodlebug.
Stop back tomorrow to see the bookmarks I made for my grandsons!

Here's the project I created:
I made this card for my granddaughter's 7th birthday.
She is a softball player and is a star on her team!!
My sweet softball player is from Miss Kate's Cuttables
and for my background, I used one of the Geometric Card Essentials
 from My Scrap Chick, I just added the stitching to
make them look like baseballs!!
Of course the face is from Peachy Keen's
 
Here is a close up of the sentiment on the front of my card.
I actually asked Tara if she could add a sentiment for
Softball players on this set, so glad she did :)

For the inside of my card, I used
Bring on the Cake, All Star Sports and Sugar and Spice
to create my sentiment.  Love how you can mix
and match to create a custom sentiment :)
