Today starts my week as the guest designer on the Peachy Keen blog! I love the versatility of the Peachy Keen stamp line and am so excited to bring you some projects this week that I hope will inspire you to create some unique one of kind gifts and greetings to share.

For my first project this week I thought we would start with a fun and easy corner bookmark.

Start with a square of cardstock; mine is 4" x 4". You then score from corner to corner to create an X across the piece. Then stamp your image onto one of the triangle shapes; for this project I'm using the Winter is for the Birds stamp set:


next, you trim away the triangle that is opposite of your stamped image

next you color your image and adhere the two side triangles together to form the corner bookmark:



these make such cute gifts for friends at school and are super fun for kids to make. For cute variations you can use fancy edge scissors or punches along the edges for a different look.

I hope this fun project has inspired you to pull out some scrap cardstock and create a corner bookmark for someone today...

Now for some Peachy Goodness for you.... Peachy Keen is allowing me to give all these goodies to one lucky person that leaves a comment here on this blog and my blog during this week:

this awesome sampler packet of stamps; contains 7 faces and 2 whiskers



Winter is for the birds mini stamp set

and something to be sure you can get busy with them right away:

a Pink Acrylic Block 4.25" x 4.25" x .5"

So...be sure to leave me a comment here and on my blog for this post and my other posts this week for your increased chance at winning these wonderful Peachy goodies!! Be sure to check back on Saturday to see if it is YOU!!!

I hope you'll stop by each day this week to see what other fun projects I have created for you this week...

Happy crafting...Lynda
