The last day of August ….

 

 

Good morning all, can you believe we are at the end of August already, where does the time go?

That means it’s sadly time to say goodbye to our guest designer of the month …and this month it has been the fabulous Lena Katrine

 

You all love her work and this last post is going to be no exception! She has made these scrumptious little bookmarks to share with you using our companion stamps and there are also some instructions for how to make them, over to Lena ….

1. Cut Cardstock in to size 5" x 6". Find the middle of the top side measuring 6", fold in the corners.

2. Cut a panel out of DP for the front in size 4 13/16" x 5 13/16". Cut off the corners to match the grade on the Book Mark in cardstock.

3. Cut 2 panels out of DP's to the back side of the Book Mark, 1 in size 1 7/8" x 5 7/8", and 1 in size 4" x 4". Cut the square diagonally (makes 2 triangles), and use just the one triangle on the top of the back.

  25. Fabulous. These are amazing! I love the layouts, colours, charm and flowers, and of course the images. LOTV were the first stamps I got, and somehow, cards I make using other stamps are never *quite* as good as ones I make with LOTV images! I really don't think I'd still be crafting if it wasn't for you guys! :D
