Bookmark & A Blog Hop!

Hi all!

Welcome to Friday, and welcome to the Some Odd Girl clear release Blog Hop!  If you started on the SOG blog, then you are now on the next step!  If you happened upon my blog coincidentally, you may want to start back at the beginning (there may be some prizes in it - wink, wink)!

So, I have some rough news - Canada Post has been playing with us a bit.  Kristy sent us our clear stamps AGES ago, and the two Canadians on the team have not received their packages.  If you noticed, we haven't been able to participate in the sneak peeks this week, because we don't have our goodies :-(

I did make a project with one of my newer digi images to show you today though.  And I'm still gonna show you what the clear sets will look like afterwards!

I made a fun, school-themed bookmark!  I am a reader, so I can always use another bookmark, and I have a few people in my family that are the same!  So, they always come in handy.

My base is Kraft CS and punched the 2 top corners with the Tag Corner Punch, then I used a lovely piece of patterned paper from Basic Grey's line called Olivia, with black and white mats.  I punched a slot at the top, and tied some Bashful Blue taffeta ribbon in a knot, and I added some pink Martha Stewart pearls to the corners.
I also added an extra patch at the top - Kraft CS punched with the Martha Stewart Lattice edge punch, then a white piece, then an SU rub-on for the sentiment.

I printed the adorable School Mae onto Whisper White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with a thin white border around.  I don't usually do blondes, but I was feeling daring! LOL

So, here are the two sets that the rest of the team will be previewing today, and they are 4" x 6" in size:



Deck the Halls Tobie, including lots of extras

And Warm Wishes Tia, including lots of extras

They are too cute, and I'm bummed I don't have them in my possession!  They will officially be released in the store on September 19!

Make sure you complete the entire hop - comment on every blog for a special surprise giveaway. You have through Sunday at 11:59PM EST to get your comments in! Winner will be announced on Monday.

Total bummer that you haven't received your sets yet girl! :( Gosh. Canadian post need to get their ass into gear!!

On the other hand, you've now made me fall back in love with School Mae! ;) LOVE her blonde hair - you should do it more!! The patterned paper is delicious too. She's too pretty to be hidden between the pages of a book so I hope you have her on the arm of the chair more times than inside the book! :D
