Caffinated Cropper Customer Hop...We're BACK!!

{This is post #2 of 2 posts for today. My FWF/ FFC post is located below this one.}

Tis the season...the season for MOVING!
Amy was moving last weekend so we took the week off from the Caffinated Cropper hops, but we are back just in time for the CUSTOMER HOP! LOVE THAT!

Because of the week off, we are still working with May's kit, Birds of a Feather. (still priced at ONLY $29!! LOVE THAT TOO!!!)
This kit is so much fun. I would be happy just continuing to work with it! LOL!

Let me preface this first project by saying that sometimes my Creative Muse is inspired by interesting things. This project came from one of those interesting inspirations. I was looking at the gorgeous EAD vinyl that's included in this kit and there is always a tool included with the vinyl...the rub stick. I was looking at the rub stick and this awesome phrase, "What's the Word, Bird?" and thought how awesome would this be for a bookmark. So I rubbed the phrase onto the stick, punched a whole in the end using my Crop-o-dile, tied on a ribbon, added a little scallop detail around the edge with my pen...and look, I made a bookmark. LOL!


By itself, it's not much of a project to share so I had to attach it to a card front and I did that by simply sliding it through a little scrap of patterned paper that I added to the top corner of the card.


Supplies used:
*Pretty much everything is from the Birds of a Feather kit
*Fiskars border punch
*Crop-o-dile


I am also a big fan of ATC's so I was very excited to see these little plastic holders in the kit. Perfect for attaching ATC's to bags and purses!


Supplies used:
*EVERY single thing- Birds of a Feather kit

Don't forget that Amy is giving away a mini kit to one commenter who does the entire blog hop and then goes back to her blog and leaves a comment!

Now you need to hop on over to....
