My project this month for the Bugaboo Crafty Challenge is a Bookmark. Here in the U.S.A., we will be celebrating our Independence on the 4th of July next month and this image hits the spot. She’s called, “Stella Calendar Month July USA.” I also really liked the sentiment that went with it. LOL.
I’ve colored the image with my Copic Markers and also used a Gold Prisma Pencil. I’m not sure who makes the pattern paper that I used, as I have had it for ages and didn’t find a name on the back. It’s from a 12×12 single sheet of paper so maybe it’s from Joanns or Michaels.
I also used small magnets so the Bookmark will hold securely to the page. I’ve had several fall out of my book lately and it’s very frustrating to try and find my place again. I think this will solve that problem.
I hope you’ll come and join us and good luck with winning something. Also – don’t forget to check out the Bugaboo Store for their weekly sales and Friday Freebie.
Our Crafty Awesomeness Challenge for June is to make a “Shaker Card” and to use our “Gina Marie” Dies. This was a no brainer for me, as I have plenty of her Beach and Sea oriented dies.
I cut my dies using white paper and colored them using my Copic Markers and a few Prisma Colored Pencils. The plastic Domes are available from here. The sparkling beads used were a type of “Christmas Ice” bought at Hobby Lobby. (I’m always picking up things that I think will look cool in a shaker card so I have them when needed.)
The circle background paper was an old scrap, but the wood-pattern paper was from a Glitz 6×6 Paper Pad called “Dapper Dan.”
The Shark Sticker was another dip into sticker notebook that I’ve had for years and years. I’m determined to make use of as many as I can on my future cards!
I hope you can join us and maybe you’ll be the winner. The challenge runs through the end of June.
Thanks for stopping by.
