About Me

I am a techno/gadget freak. I love almost anything that has to do with computers and software. I have an engineering background, but I haven't worked in that field for over 10 years. I married my wonderful husband in September 2004 and look forward to spending every single day of the rest of my life with him. I love cats and even call myself "Cat".

BrakeFast Club Challenge - Book Marks

This past Sunday, a new challenge started at the BrakeFast Club.  I know.  I'm running behind with all my stuff - again - this week.  I did make a book mark from the tutorial the Chrissy posted on her blog.  She has it laid out nicely with easy to follow instructions and pictures (which is great for me since I look at the pictures more than read the directions).  These bookmarks are also a great way to use up scraps which I also love to do since they are taking over my storage area.  Here is my version of the bookmark:

Stamps: Purse (I Brake for Digis)
Papers:  patterned paper (I think its Daisy D, but I got it at the Dollar Store), Recollections cardstock (pink & red), Wausau Exact Index 110# (white cardstock), glitter cardstock (unknown - ordered it a couple years ago from a lady in the UK), paper flowers (Prima), brad (Recollections), rhinestone (Michaels), Wrought Iron corner punch (EK Success), Tulips deep edge punch (EK Success), Butterfly trio punch (Martha Stewart), copic markers

These bookmarks are fun to make and they take very little time.  The most complicated thing on this particular bookmark is my trim and the swirls I created.  I took the guide off my corner punch, and then punched the edge of my cardstock, visually lining up the design by turning the punch over and looking through the bottom. I hand drew some swirls on scrap cardstock and cut those out with some small scissors.  Then assembled all the pieces.  Quick & easy.

There is still today left if you want to get in on this week's challenge.  There will be a new challenge up tomorrow and the fun starts all over again.  If you're looking for this cute purse stamp, you can find it in the I Brake For Digis shop.

Take care...
