Corner bookmark

I did a corner bookmark for a swap that I am in where we had to do all bookmarks. this is the first time I ever did one of these. I seen this done on another blog but I wish I could remeber where so i could give them credit for this. the background stamp is from hero arts, 5-petal punch is from stampin up(which I used scraps to make them), I also used another stampin up for the smaller flower as it has 3 different flowers on the punch, the I used dazzin diamonds for the center.
these was so simple to make I could not believe it.

V-8 or B-8

this is my version of the v-8 juice but I call B-8. since my hubby and I do bingo here where we live. we are always teasing this one lady about the juice since she doesn't like at all. so i made this card for her. I printed the v-8 juice off their website. the cherry paper is a scrap that I had. no stamping on this on at all since it came from the computer. the sentiment I did on microsoft word.

here is a layout I did of my brother in law when he was in school many years ago. I used white cardstock for the background and stampin up retired papers. I also used deckle scissors that i am sure we all have. :)) I then used 2 different round punches for the circles and 1 of the punches(the larger circle) is from stampin up also. sticker is from basic grey.

this is my sister in law when she was in school as a freshman. I used the scalloped edge punch by stampin up but I saved the small edges that is left from the punch and used on another layout as you seen. you can also use them on cards also as they do great on there. the 3-D cheerleading sticker I paid 4.99 for at hobby lobby tonight. I thought it was worth it since I do not buy these kind of stickers that much. this layout needed something like this. white and black gel pen was used.

Grandma & Grandpa Sheldon

here is a layout that i did tonight. the background paper is from stampin up and is retired. the black and white striped paper is from Best Occasions. the buttons was given to me from my mother inlaw. I also used brads and thin strips of white cardstock that was left over from using the scallop edge punch from stampin up. that is on another layout I will also show you . I used a white gel pen to go around the journal box
