MIM #128

Good Monday Morning everyone!
MIM at PTI features Ashley with 
Stamping Random Background Patterns
Decided to do some bookmarks for the grandchildren returning to school this month.
The card I will be sending the bookmark in has been stamped, randomly, with dreamy words from
PTI's Embellishments stampset.
Bookmark is stamped with a sentiment from All Booked Up.
Lots of layering with a Mat Stack 4 stamped with the image from All Booked up, with the reading girl stamped on a Limitless layers circles die cut.
PTI buttons, inks and card stocks.
Inside of card.
Left plenty of room on top and bottom of bag for a 'to' and 'love, grandma'.
Will do a bunch of these for my sweethearts,
this one is for 8 year old Analise, starting 3rd grade.
Tutorial by Ashley can be found here:

  11. Nancy, this is fantastic! One of the thoughts that I had when I watched Ashley's video is that it would be really neat to make a background with words, but then I totally forgot about it. I love what you did here...your overlapping almost looks a bit like argyle to me. Such a beautiful color scheme and perfect details.

  18. The colors and layout are to die for! This little girl looks like Ana, just like the little boy looks like Nate! I'm so excited for the kids to see them. Everything from the washi tape to the striped ribbon is striking. The pattern play is fantastic.
