We have another
upon us at Imaginisce!

With summer now here we thought it would be fitting to have a 
summery kind of theme for this month's challenge.

So this month's challenge is to:
  • Create a layout/card/altered project with the word "SUN" (or sunshine) 
  • OR the object of a SUN in your project.
  • You must use at least 75% Imaginisce product on your project
  • Upload your entry HERE
  • Deadline for submissions is July 25th, 2012
One lucky winner will be chosen from the monthly entries submitted
and win 2 current collections of their choice.
I whipped up a very fun and easy bookmark that would also make a 
wonderful summer or anytime craft for kids!
 Here I've used a plain sheet of white cardstock, patterned papers
from the Imaginisce Makin' Waves Collection, fabric ric rac and embellishments.
I created the sun using a 22mm I Top Punch and 1.5" circle punch

To create the bookmark you will need a 6x6 piece of heavy paper
1- Score paper at 3" mark, turn and score again at the 3" mark
2-  Turn your paper and score from corner to corner (will look like scoring a triangle)

I have marked the scored lines in orange so that you can see them:

3- Fold the paper to create the triangle

4-Take one of the tips of the triangle, crease and  fold it down as shown

5- Next, bring the two side points up and fold; you will now have a square

6- Fold the sides in half to give a should now look like this:

7- Lastly, take those points and now fold them back over and into the
pocket of the bookmark

That's it!  No glue required, except for adding those fun embellishment with.
These would make sweet back-to-school gifts for teachers or kids.
Christmas will be here before we know it, so think stocking stuffer!

Hope you've enjoyed the tutorial...the photos aren't the best as I took them in
early morning.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment with your email
address (or email me from the side contact list) and I'll get back to you :)

Thanks much and a Happy 4th!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
