Take Time To Relax

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!!

Hope you are all having a wonderful day! I had an awesome weekend with a group of friends
at a scrapbook retreat. We had a blast!  I was able to get a lot of projects done and a
 start to my Christmas cards.

It's challenge time again over at Fantabulous Cricut today. The challenge this week is:
 "Book Lover" - make a book, project with a book on it or even a bookmark.
It sounded like a lot of fun and had to join in. I can't wait til next week as it will be my first actual Design Team Member project for FCCB.
Be sure to stop over at Fantabulous Cricut  for all the details and to check out what the
 amazing Design Team has created for you this week.
Here is my project:


My card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, base layer is 4 x 5 1/4. I cut this handsome little guy at
 4 3/4 from the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge plus the layers. I embossed his
pants with the Su-lattice folder. When I cut the book, I cut it in 4 layers so I could pop each page to give it a little dimension. I added a star border using an EK Success punch along with adding
some ribbon and a bow.
The cute face is from PK-Everyday Character set.


I also made a matching bookmark. I cut it at 4 x 5 1/2 folded in in half and adhered it down.
I rounded the corners and added 5 punch holes at the top to add ribbon. I stamped and heat embossed using the SU tassel time and seeing spots stamp set.  I cut the little
bookworm at 1 1/2 from Create a Critter cartridge and again did the same as above for the book.
The scallop circle and stitched circle die is from My Creative Time and the sentiment is from
Pink By Design-Summer Vacation.
Thanks for visiting,
Sherrie K
