Love Monster

Happy Wednesday! I'm excited to share my projects today for the first ever Print Candee kit. The kit includes coordinated papers, clip art, borders, alphas, journaling tags, and a few other goodies. You can check out the kit on the Print Candee blog.

A while back, by blogging buddy Heather started making square bookmarks--so cool! I searched for a tutorial on how to make a square bookmark and found one here. I used her super cute template to make a monster bookmark and also made a corresponding gift bag with the Print Candee February kit:


For the bookmark, I used some of the Print Candee papers. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture of the bookmark on an actual book, but the teeth overhang the corner of a page. Here's a close-up:


I also made a gift bag using several papers in the Paper Pack, banner pieces in the Alphas & Bits pack, and one of the border strips. You can see how the banner and photo corner were used for teeth, although any patterned paper would work. Here's a close-up:


Using Photoshop, I layered the striped paper in the background added the red polka dotted paper below. Then, I added the "be mine" border on top of the polka dotted paper. It was a good way to add a sentiment, although a tag would be cute, too. Here's a close-up:


I finished the gift bag off by punching holes in the top and threading some Doodlebug twine.

The Print Candee February kit can be purchased as a kit or in parts. For the first week of February, it is available for 35% off, too. What a deal!

Be sure to check out the other DT projects! We also have a new DT member--Lisa Arana--woo hoo! So excited to have her on board with us. She'll be joining us in a couple of weeks for a blog hop.

Thanks so much for the comments...I really appreciate them! Have a great day!
