Space Explorer Bookmarks | MFT Stamps

Happy First Day of Summer! Although it really doesn’t feel like it today- weatherwise.. Nevermind, two boys are now done with school and the last one finishes in 2 days! Summer, I can’t wait to enjoy every last moment of you!

If you follow me, you know that I like to make little things for my boys. To encourage them, to boost their confidence and mostly to let them know how much I love them and how proud I am of them. They like to receive them and I love to make them.

This time around I made some bookmarks. It was a first time for me to attempt making a galaxy style background. What did I learn? That you really can’t go wrong! I will take you through how I did it in the video that you will find below!

I used a laminator and some scrap laminate pouches and ran the bookmarks through. This is purely optional but will allow them to be a bit more sturdy and last longer!

I could not find the sentiment set that I used. I think it may be discontinued. It was from MFT stamps.


I hope this inspires you to create some fun bookmarks of your own! 

Thanks for stopping by!

Mermazing Card Set | MFT stamps + Video Tutorial

Happy Monday! I hope that you are having a great day and week so far! I have a new card set to share with you today that features some of the new May release from MFT Stamps! This project was so much fun to create! You will find a how-to video after the photos below and in it, I will take you through the coloration process for the images as well as show you how I created the backgrounds!

I am a HUGE fan of the Birdie Brown line from MFT Stamps and when I saw that there was a new Mermaid set, I just was giddy with excitement. I have paired up the Mermazing Set with the new Exquitiste Ocean set and I love how much versatility you get my changing up the different element combinations!

I have listed all the Copic markers that I used for each image below. Although the colors stayed roughly the same for each mermaid, a few change ups and different coloring orders made each mermaid unique!
