For PTI MIM#54

Hello, dear readers! 

Have been out of circulation for a while, mainly due to a major cleaning up of our house and also my eldest's birthday celebration in his class.

This year he turns 6 and i thought, instead of giving the usual candy-filled goodie bags (and some school stationery) to his classmates, why not give out beginner-level reading books or activity books.  And accompanying bookmarks with the name of each of his classmates.

While i was working on the bookmarks, Papertrey Ink's video for Make It Monday #54 came out.  What great timing! :)

When i was watching the video, i kept thinking: "Please, please, let us use Stickles!" LOL! And Ashley Cannon Newell did! Yaay!  Truth be told, am not really fond of using glitter unless it's of the sticky kind.  The reason:  my eldest had a phase of using glitter. Every day. On every thing.  And our house had been filled with it.  Everytime we sweep the floor, the dustpan would be glittery and sparkly! :)  And so, after that, i've "banned" glitter of the powdery kind in the house.  Yes, Stickles is the answer to my prayers! Hahaha!

Here are the finished bookmarks:

For the girls, i made them sparkly :)




 Here are close-ups of the glittered buttons.  I have used Stickles and Distress Stickles.

 These are for the boys.  Of course, no bling here :)

 Have layered stamping the small star from Boy Basics and the dotted star from MME.

 Here's what the backs look like:

Supply list:  Cardstock, patterned papers - American Crafts; stamps - Papertrey Ink (Flower Fusion #12, Tag-its #1, Boy Basics: Simple Circles), My Mind's Eye (Follow Your Heart "Be Amazing," Dilly Dally "Adventures"); dies - Papertrey Ink (Limitless Layers 1.75" Circles, Half & Half, Simple Circles), Sizzix (Butterfly #12, Framelits Stars); buttons - Papertrey Ink; ribbons - Papertrey Ink, Maya Road, ixhop; twine - My Mind's Eye; Ranger Stickles, Distress Stickles; Glossy Accents; stickers- Adorn-it, Jenni Bowlin; ink - Papertrey Ink (Autumn Rose, Classic Kraft), TH Distress Ink, VersaCraft; adhesive - Helmar.

I've enjoyed doing these bookmarks (and glittery buttons!)  and i hope the children would be able to use them. 

Oh, one more thing:  i love love love the PTI ribbons!  The twill is WOW! and the satin one is just so elegant!

Thank you very much for stopping by!

PTI's topnotch twill is definitely my favorite of their ribbons. It is just so forgiving and easy to work with.

Beaaaautiful projects!! I love how you used the Flower Fusion and Tag-It's stamp sets together, very creative. I have a huge stash of MS glitter to use, but I have been contemplating stickles just for their sheer ease of use and less mess.
