BOOKMARK OR TAG IT for DAD WITH DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY:)

Where to begin....  Well, my kids have been home for 2 whole days on summer break and I am already looking forward to them going back to school, LOL.  Seriously, it is very nice being able to stay up later and not have to get up at 6am - I don't do mornings well! 

I love to make projects with fancy folds or 3D elements and I feel like I need to do more of those!  This week, our challenge at DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY gave me that opportunity:)  Our challenge this week is a BOOKMARK OR TAG FOR DAD.

In order to enter our challenge, you are not required to use an image from DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY SHOP, however, if you have one, go ahead and use it or pick up some of the newest images in the shop to create something!!  You have until Tues., June 28 to enter our challenge.  The top DT pick requires use of a DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY image, but you can win the random drawing or the 2nd or 3rd pick with any image.  Can't wait to see your creations! 


I have used a Beate Johns tutorial from Splitcoast to create my corner bookmark.  I have never made one of these and I really think they look cool - this will definitely not be the last one I make!  I colored my DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY image with Copics.  I chose this image because both my boys play select soccer and my husband is a former player and currently a coach of my older son's team, so it's great for father's day.  Sentiment is from Verve Clear stamps, paper and ribbon from my stash, SU and Coredinations, button from SU, Martha Stewart punch used for border.  Hope you like it!!


Additional challenges :

DUTCH DARE - for the boys
SHELLY'S IMAGES - masculine
STAMPIN' B's - use a border punch
DIVAS BY DESIGN - anything but a card
LIL RED WAGON - for dad

MY MUM'S CRAFT SHOP - seeing spots

SCRAP-CREATIONS - anything goes
PAPERTAKE WEEKLY - dads and lads

I have been wanting to make one of these, but with my Mom going to the Nook now, she doesn't read as many physical books, oh well, yours truly inspires me to make one anyway for me =0) You did a beautiful job with your creation. Thanks for joining us at Divas By Design.
