Jumbo Paperclip Bookmark

This was my first try making a bookmark with the jumbo paperclips. It was really easy! I found the paperclips in the office supplies at Wal-Mart - very inexpensive!

The pink and white papers were punched with nesting scalloped punches. I embossed the cupcake with chocolate embossing powder and then colored it in with blender pens and my ink pads. The cherry is highlighted with clear Stickles. The ribbon is attached under the white layer with glue dots. I also used glue dots to attach the back to the front around the paper clip. I tried using glue, but couldn't get it to hold.

The colors are all SU - Rose Red, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa.

Thanks for looking and happy stamping!

Group Card

This card front is a collaberation (sp?) of several girls on SCS for a card swap. Everyone contributed an element to make this card. I love how it turned out!

Some Scrapbook Layouts

Yesterday I posted some cards I've recently made, and today, here are some scrapbook layouts I've made recently for swaps on SCS.

This first one was to have a bath time theme. (Sorry these pics are so aweful!) I cut the letters out on the Cricut with the Winnie the Pooh font cartridge. (I love that one for fonts!) I used some bubbles DP, DCWV cardstock, and dewdrops on the bottom. The scallops are cut with 2 nesting punches (can't remember brand) but I love them - use them a lot. The stamp is House Mouse.

This page I made for a brown theme. Again, DCWV background paper, some misc DP, some SU cs (creamy caramel and chocolate chip). All ink is SU and versamark for the embossing on the bon-bon. The stamps are SU, but the name is escaping me now - I believe it's a retired set though. I can't wait to use this page!

This last page was a blue theme. The paper is the same as above (photo mat is SU Ballet Blue). The stamp is a misc rubber stamp, and you can't see it, but the "family" is highlighted with clear stickles.

Well, I hope you like them. I'm off to hopefully get some crafting done today. I want to try making these coaster boxes for Easter baskets, so I may try one today. If they turn out, I'll post a pic later.

Happy stamping!
