Let's Get Started -
I used a left-over piece of the cardstock from to guestbook to form the base of the bookmark. This was cut to be 9"X4" and was from "penny's Playground - Quick Quotes Paper". I then cut a piece of smooth Coordination cardstock in purple at 8"X3 1/2". I pulled a piece of cream colored cardstock from my scrap stash by "Recollections" and cut it at 7 1/2"X3". I then rounded the right hand corners of all three pieces using the 3/8" side of my corner chomper. I inked around the edges of all 3 pieces with "Dusty Concord" Distress Ink. Holes were placed in the left hand side of the bookmark with the Bind-It-All and then the edges trimmed out so that I can place the bookmark inside my guestbook.
Using the Cricut Country Life cartridge page 60, I cut the flower pitcher at 2" using scraps of paper from my stash that coordinated. I cut the banner from the same page using both layers at 1". The Lilac twine from the Twinery was perfect as well. I love the way it all coordinates with my new guest book.
Remember I told you that I was going to use "Sympathetic Sayings" from K. Andrew Designs today? You can view this stamp set by clicking on the image below.
Now for the CANDY!
Remember that I am giving away "Splashtastic Summer" as part of this hop. I want someone to enjoy this great set. To gain an entry today, all you have to do is be a follower of my blog and make a comment. I feel like it should be an "easy entry" day. Have a great day!
