Good Friends MoJo 197

Its time for MoJo Monday.
Since its the last Monday of the month,todays sketch can be round or square , or both if you have your Mojo On.

For my card I choose to do square, and used some Prima papers.
This sketch was very simple and so easy to do.Just what I needed this weekend, as I am still fighting the flu bug.I've been sick since Wed. and this bug is not letting up.
Hopefully I will be over it by         Thursday, as I am on vacation for 10 days and planning to go away for a few days.
                                                                    
                                                                      I used another Paper Fashions,Etc
sentiment from the The Friendship Collection
Recollection flower, MS branch punch, Wally's ribbon, M's rhinsetones.

Hello Sunshine ........MoJo196

Hi Again, welcome back to another MoJo Monday and another wonderful sketch.
This sketch was fairly simple and was what I needed.
I was off all weekend but it was very busy. DH and I had to strip everything out of our Living room and dining room , as we have guys coming in  laying new floors on Friday.
Wow, I didn't realize I had so much stuff to move.
All that is left now is our couch and TV, which we will move first thing on Friday.Will be so glad when its all done and things can get back to normal.
One of the good things from all the renos was purging.Tossed a lot of things.
When all this is done and over, the next thing on my list is my craft room.
Paper, tools and anything I haven't used for some time will be going.
I will put up a list of things I will be selling off, plus a few Blog candys.


Since I still had the papers from my previous post out , I went with the same colors .This card came together in minutes.

More of the yummy papers from
MY Minds Eye "Fine And Dandy"
Recollections flowers, ribbon from my stash,
Verve Sentiment, nesties.

PaperFashions Design Team .......Congratulations

Hi and welcome back.Today I  have some exciting news to share .
A few weeks back , I received an email from Melissa at Paper Fashions saying how much  they loved my work and asked me to part of their newly design team.
Melissa, along with Gayla and Diane  have
started a new Digital Stamp Company.
Needless to say , I went  and checked out their digital images and loved what I saw.
I immediately accepted the postion.


For my very first card with Paper Fashions, I used the Graduation Set.This was the first set I saw and I loved it.
I been wanting to try my hand at this graduation card I;ve been seeing popping up everywhere .
I couldn't find a tutorial on how this card was made, so I sorta did my own thing by looking at a card in the gallery on SCS.

This card was out of the norm for me as I always use pattern paper.
I am a paper junkie,lol, and always struggle with just using just cardstock.
Overall I was pleased with how it turned out.

Please hop on over to Paper Fashions and see all the fun Digital images,tutorials, etc they offer.Melissa, Diane and Gayla are very talented and
do amazing work.

I look forward to creating and sharing more projects using the Paper Fashions
Digis.
 Thnak you for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Ribbon BookMark Tut !

Hi everyone, today I am  here with a little tut for a Ribbon BookMark for
Really Reasonable Ribbon.




I can't take credit for this idea , I saw it awhile back , when surfing.So this is what I came up with from what I remembered.I added the extra tail of ribbon.



Above is the list of items you will need.
I used a length of ribbon 17" plus a piece 3"
Pont tail elastics,Button, needle and thread.


With needle and thread, pinch the ribbon about 3" from one end and sew,plus pinch the 3" piece and sew.
Attach the 3" piece to the longer length by sewing.


Then sew on button.



Attach the ponytail elastic to the other end, either by sewing or attaching with some tape.

I used a piece of score tape.
Hook the elastic around the button
and Voila , a very easy peasy Book Mark.

I used a piece of White Diamond Satin and a Piece of Sheer Line Edge Black/White for these 2 bookmarks.Also used a couple of button from the Fruitsicle Buttons


I also used a piece of Diamond Satin Red
A piece of Brown Crochet Lace
Couple of button from my stash.






Couple of pics to show how they look on a book.
