Books and dogs!!

April 06, 2016

Hi there!

it's Yolanda here from Scraping Time!  Today I come with an unusual post! Last weekend I decided to play a game with my crafty friends on Facebook (you can read it here)
I showed them 5 stamps sets from Gerda Steiner Designs and I told them that I would work with the one who got more "likes" during the weekend for this post! And the first one was the "Howl are you? Puppy Clearstamp Set" followed by the "Lucky duck 4x6 Clearstamp set". Then, I started working with the dogs and I also accepted the challenge to make a project with the topic they suggested there!

There were three main topics on the comments!

1. Asiul Prince suggested: Something was wrong! Never mind, go ahead!. I had made a card with this topic some weeks ago (you can see it here)

2. Pilar Cruz suggested: Happy mother's day!

3. Aroa Blanco suggested: Book day.

I decided to make something with them. I will show you one today and the second one in my next post.

When a read "book day" I thought: whattttttt???? Dogs and book day????? You must be joking! hahaha but I decided to accept the challenge and this is what I made mixing it with the first suggestion!


Yes, it is a bookmark! We are going to celebrate Book Day on next 23rd April and this can be a good present for a friend.

I made the book mark thinking that the dog would be over the book all the time. So I stick it on the up border with double side tape, once I made the bookmark.

I show you more...




I love that cuttie traying to relax after a a "ruff day" Isn't it sweet???? I never thought about using this set for this purpose but I really enjoyed thinking about it and making this bookmark! I think you can use any critter with the same structure. 

By the way, I coloured the dog with Spectrum Noir markers so I stamped again the dog on the same orange decorated paper, fussy cut it and stick it behind the dog to avoid seeing the marker on the back side of the dog. 


I hope you had a good time reading this post and of course, have a great week!!
