DT Craftwell: Paper Clips Bookmarks


This is My post for Craftwell.
I made some bookmarks for my children teachers (my post for April) and decided to make some paper clips to go with some cookies that my friend Nancy (Nancy Fancy Cookies) made for me using the same stamp/dies:

I also gave some of the other bookmarks with these cute cookies:

and added the Teresa Collins sentiment die cuts to the back:

The paper clips were easy to convert in bookmarks by adding a piece of folded and glue together cardstock to some extra big regular paperclips I bought at Target:

I added some die cuts to the front and the sentiment and children names stamps to the back:

PWP DT post: Galveston Minialbum, the final pages:

Hi Scrappers,

This post for Paper Wing Productionsthe final pages that made for my ongoing minialbum for one of the trips to Galveston:


I used:

3d zots 

Embossing powders, HeroArts, and an unknown from another kit (black sand)

Liquid Gloss, Ranger

Cardstock: Ranger nature coredination, CTMH, 

 mini-album by Heart of Texas

Glitter paste, BoBunny


In short:

I made a grid using the washi tape from nesting components kit:

I prepared a liquid spray from the Moon shadow ink and sprayed some of the chippies from the kit:

I made a paste using the all tree powders to obtain different colors, shimmers, and effects:

I added some of the Flat Shot paste to the chippies: 

I also added some of the Glitz Shot paste to the shell:

Moon shadow ink paste gives a interesting look to the other shell:

For the other page, I decided to use the Flat Shot paste using the brick stencil:

Such a cool and distressed look:

I decided to add some embossing powders to the still wet paste and heat emboss it to make it look like sand:

I also heat embossed the sentiment using Distress Oxide ink and the same sand looking embossing powder:


I added the blue shell:

And attached the other die cut to one of the clip art included in the nesting components kit. I used the same paste as a glue too and applied pressure until it dried (quickly):

I added some leftover papers to the bottom of the page simulating waves and added some glitter paste:

For the sand castle page, I fussy cut the mermaid clip art and also glued it using the paste, being fussy and using the paste as distress medium too. I added some of the Glitz paste (green) to the scales of the mermaid and to some of the epoxy stickers to five them some glitter:

I heat embossed the negative die cut from one of the shells and added it to the mermaid image:

I punched one of the corners of some of the cardstock included in the kit and distressed the edges of it using the Flat Shot paste:

For the ball page: I cut another clipart image, distressed it with the paste and attached besides another piece of distressed cardstock and a picture mat:

added some of the die cuts from Paper House and stenciled some water drops around the mat and a sentiment die cut to finish the page:

The same to the sandcastle page:

I added some of the Moon shot paste to the inside of the sentiment in the bigger die cut for the grid page:

Some leftover die cuts from previous pages:

A sail boat die cut to finish the look: 

And finally a previously distressed punched sand dollar, leftover from a previous page for the center of the grid:

The whole finished album:

I hope you enjoyed pages and visit Paper Wing Productions to see more inspiration and learn more fun techniques like the ones I used in these three pages.
