BasicGrey Challenge 24 - Pockets
Hi everyone, Saturday again and another challenge at BasicGrey. This week the project must include a pocket of some kind which for me is always a challenge! My lovely DT friends have come up with some fabulous ways to make pockets, their ingenuity amazes me every week. Hope you can join in theirs some wonderful inspiration on the blog.
I found a template for this little bookmark pocket card and now unfortunately I can't find the blog where it's posted, if I do I'll update with a link and thank you for whoever you are for the instructions. It's very easy to make once I'd found something big enough to draw round for the eight inch circle that you start off with, I ended up with a frying pan! After cutting our the eight inch circle you need to score two and a half inches in from both sides vertically and then horizontally across the middle slightly below the halfway down, I just guessed this as there wasn't a measurement and seems to have worked ok. Fold the circle in half from the bottom to the top and then the sides inwards on the folds. I used Marrakech paper and also added a semi-circle of Marrakech on the inside as this paper isn't double sided. The bookmark is made from white card, more of the Marrakech and a stamp from BasicGrey Morocco set which is coloured with markers and a bit of stickles glitter. I punched holes in the two folding card front sections and at the top of the bookmark then added the green ribbon to finish. TFL.
NEW STAMPS FROM KADOODLE
There are some fantastic new stamps being released today by Kadoodle and designed by my very talented friend Sandra Dry, they're the absolute cutest little characters named Loupy Lou and Bobo and are now available to purchase on the Craft Barn Website. I received some photographs of the stamps to add to this post but when I upload them all I'm seeing is the copyright and not the stamp image so I've borrowed a beautiful card that Sandra made to show the little cuties. Hopefully I'll be able to update later with pictures. Also being released today are two hilarious and alternative style stamps by Carol Staples and these are Ma and Pa Iggly.
