Squigglefly/Stampin' Royalty challenges...

Hello, friends:}


I promised yesterday that I would share some Nina Brackett goodness today--and here are two projects using her Digital stamps from Squigglefly, as well as her new Vintage Background stamps and Bright and Grungy digital paper.


My first project is actually a bookmark. Squigglefly has a bookmark challenge going on right now--and this fits right in with the Stampin' Royalty challenge [anything but a card]. I used Nina's Squigglefly Hooty Who images. LOOOOVE this owl! I made the bookmark for a young boy who needs to keep reading over the summer. Three books this summer isn't too bad:} I paper pieced each leaf and branch. I attached the owl to a paper clip so he could move the owl up when he was finished with each book. This bookmark could also be used over and over--as a teacher, I had to "bribe" my students to read...so maybe challenge a kid to read three books a month and then three a week...endless possibilities! 


This card is one of my favs! I actually didn't think of it--I saw a card by Vanessa Menhorn on page 41 in my new Paper Crafts mag. I knew as soon as I saw her flower that I could use Nina's digital Fancy Flower (printed right on the Bright and Grungy and transparency), as well as the text Vintage Background stamp for this card. **NOTE:: I try not to copy cards that I see...but this one was too beautiful not to! I had the same thicker letter stickers and similar paper...I just had to! LOVE this card, Vanessa! Thanks for inspiring me:} 
It looks so similar to Vanessa's....I LOVE it! 
Well, that is it for me today...I have lots more to create...and a bit of shopping to do [for groceries--nothing fun today!]. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to stop back tomorrow--I've got a special gift to share with you...and possibly some cards! Be blessed:}
Until next time~
Love, Sav
