Page Corner Bookmarks

Each month Stampin' Up! Demonstrators receive a Newsletter from Stampin' Up! to help us in our business and they always have some great ideas and samples for us to make. A couple of weeks ago I was watching the Stampin' Up! channel on You Tube and they showed how to make Page Corner Bookmarks and I thought they were so cool! But didn't write down the measurements and haven't had a chance to go back to it. Then when I received my newsletter this week, it had the measurements and some samples in it. So I made a couple up quickly and they are so easy, and like I said, quick!! So here are the ones I made....

If you want to know how to make them, let me know and I will get the template and instructions to you. Or we could make them at a workshop! Well, I have to go and put some more stamps together - I received my Preorder of new stamps that will be released in the Spring Mini Catalogue on the 1 August. Hopefully I can play a bit over the next week or so and I'll put up some stuff I do with the new stamps.

Some More Cards....

I had a great night out at a workshop last night and I wanted to share the cards that we made.

This card is using Pink Pirouetted, Riding Hood Red, Old Olive and Whisper White Cardstock; Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon; and the Echoes of Kindness and Best Yet Stamp Sets; Riding Hood Red and Old Olive Inks and Blender Pens. I stamped the flowers using the Faux Silk Technique onto Tissue Paper.

I made this card using Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Very Vanilla cardstock; Haiku DSP; Old Olive grosgrain ribbin; Upsy Daisy Stamp Set; So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, Old Olive Inks and Blender Pens and Sponge Daubers. I love doing the sponging straight onto the stamp to get this effect. I love it in shades of purple as well!

I love Eggplant!! I used Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum and Very Vanilla Cardstock; Cupcakes Wheel and Crazy for Cupcakes Stamp Sets; Elegant Eggplant, Basic Gray, Creamy Caramel, Pale Plum, Riding Hood Red Inks and Blender Pens (or if you have those colour in Markers that would be easier than using the blender pens!); Scallop Edge Punch; Sponges and Elegant Eggplant Ribbon - and of course BLING - Dazzling Diamonds Glitter and Two-way Glue Pen.

So I hope you enjoy trying these for your self!!

Better Late than Never!!

School Holidays are fun, aren't they?! It's great having the kids home, but they slow me down doing the things I would like to do!! SO finally here are some of the sneak peaks for the Christmas in July Stamp-a-Stack I will be running this Friday. Don't forget to shoot me an email if you would like to come. I will post the full pictures of the cards after the Stamp-a-Stack. Oh, and we will be doing more, I just haven't finalised them yet!
