Ladybug, ladybug…

I’m away on a weekend stamping retreat, but I wanted to still share a few things on my Blog while I’m gone.  Hopefully, these are timed correctly and the server doesn’t fail like last time! 

Yes, another craft fair item…a sketchbook, small pen and a jumbo bookmark in the Ladybug theme.  I wrapped these up in a cello bag and added some black/red polka dot ribbon and a tag with a ladybug on it.  Too cute! 

The ladybug sketchbook was inspired by a swap card I received.  It doesn’t have a name on the back, so I really don’t know who to give credit to.  It was perfect to cover the round sketchbooks I had purchased a few months ago.  I took off the spiral binding and then traced the front onto Real Red cardstock and the back on Basic Black.  I punched the 1/2" circles out of Black Faux Diamond Dust so they sparkle.  I used my white gel pen for the stitching around the body and wings.  I tied some different polka dot ribbons on the top. 

Then I received the scallop circle ladybug bookmark/paperclip in a 3D swap at Convention.  Another great idea.  It is 4 Scalloped Circle punches, stamped with black dots, folded in half and then layered on a Black Scallop Circle.  A pop dot between the paperclip and a second black scallop circle undeneath holds it secure.  A 1" black circle is punched for the head and slid between the Red scallop body and the top black scallop circle.  Pretty easy!

The little red pens I had from a LONG time ago.  I wrapped a label around them after I brayed the white label with Real Red ink and then stamped the dots in black.

I think this is a great stocking gift for someone who loves ladybugs or that young girl you know!
