Do you like how the glitter looks like a little dew sparkling in the morning light? The roses took some practice to make, but once you get the hang of it, you won't be able to stop making them…I think I just might make some more this week.
Last weekend my friend Julie and I hosted a couple of fellow demonstrators with Stampin'Up! who could not attend the annual Convention held in Salt Lake City by Stampin' Up! We had a great time. Each of us contributed a Wow Swap (ideas we share among demonstrators). This was Sarah's idea. She provided us each with these lovely simple journals, then showed us how to make what she called "frayed paper roses". The bookmark was a demonstration and note in our monthly magazine for demonstrators from a few years back. Super useful crafting always makes for great gifts and you know how I love my 3-D crafting.
We each created a cluster of roses to embellish the book marks she also showed us how to make. Super simple even though it does not look like. I'll have to take some pictures or make a tutorial on just how simple it is to make a ribbon and a ponytail holder into this super cute bookmark. The roses really make it look lovely with the journal.
What do you think of my little creation inspired by Sarah's help? Happy creating. I'll be posting more details from our Mini Convention all week. Diana
