happy monday!!!!! WooHoo it's Blog Hoppin time over at BBTB !! keep reading and eventually i'll give you all the info on my give~away :)
first , our challenge this week over at the bug was to use our going places cartridge, using the man and woman cut. actually there are 2 cuts i chose the seperate ones, i havent seen what the other DT ladies used i hope i did the right one! lol the lovely gracious regina probably wouldnt tell me any different im sure she just shakes her head at me sometimes ;) i so appreciate her tact with my dorkiness :)
so what i decided to do here was make his and hers page markers. do you and your sweetie sometimes read the same book and that knucklehead..errr, i mean honey of a guy fold the page corner down or fold the page in half! to mark his place (drives me bonkers!!) or forget whos bookmark is whos then you have to re~read to find where you were..... yeah right dear hubby the one with the hearts and ladybugs is yours.. well maybe now he'll have a clue right :)
what i did was use the card feature with this cut (you could just cut a rectangle, total size of this is 4X2 if your just using a regular cutter)
i cut this twice and also blackout feature for the background color so it would be sturdy plus i adhered magnets on the inside between the background color and the inside cardstock layer. that way it snaps shut and is secure. i hope that makes sense :)
for the mans marker i hand~stitched up one side and added the word journey from my graphically speaking cartridge.
for the girly one i used graphically speaking for the word imagine a flourish and a flower. i hand~stitched up the side of this one also i also added tiny butterflies from a martha stewart punch. i also used my colorbox fluid chalk pad (darkbrown)as you know i love my ink :)
ok so heres a couple of pics so you get the idea... AND for the blog hop what i want you to do is leave me a comment telling me who is your favorite author and your favorite book THEN head on over to the beautiful krista's blog ( just click on her name it ill bring you right to her) and oh my if you havent been to her place yet, you are in for some sweetness! her creations are just adorable, her love just shines right on through her work. oh and IF you link my bloghop to your blog let me know i'll enter you twice for the gals that have already commented since i am editing this after theyve already commented, out of fairness i'll be adding them twice also. ok ok enough of my chattering eh :)
