Looks like a Prima sort of day!

This is another project that i have created for 7 Kids College Fund and i decided to go with a company that is carried at 7 Kids called Prima..most of you might know this name because of their beautiful flowers, but i chose some other gorgeous things and actually no flowers!

What i haven't mentioned so far is the challenge this week at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog is to use Embellishments.

*Note...i will include my "how to" at the end of this post.

Here is my project featuring the Mixed Media Doll stamp from Prima called Doll with Ruffle dress as a bookmark for this Prima Fairy Rhymes journal:

Items from 7 Kids College Fund store:




     Please take the time to visit the 7 Kids College Fund DT projects/cards they are beautiful!





How to make this bookmark:
I used the backing to the stamp, remember it is glossy so when coloring with copics you will need to seal it with the Glossy Accents.  I also used the backing from the journal to make the bookmark more stable.
 
I cut out the stamped image and then adhered tape to the back using my xyron.  Then i cut it out again. Before i adhere the journal backing to the image i place ribbon at the top to make it into a hanging bookmark. I added the red line tape to make it more secure.
 











Next, i stamped the dress sections onto the patterned paper and cut them out.  I have enough to make two dresses.   Here i am showing the Martha Stewart butterfly punches i used to make the butterfly embellishments.
To add the chain to the front of the journal i used the Big Bite Crop a dile...it punches through heavy cardboard easily.
