SI Weekly DT and LOC #43

This project was created for the challenge blog Crafting By Designs for the Dog Days of Summer Challenge.  Smeared Ink was so awesome to sponsor this challenge and some of the Smeared Ink Design Team was asked to give some inspiration.

This project is also going to be my Smeared Ink Weekly Design Team project and will also be entering this into the current Left Of Center challenge, #43 Alter It.

I have made a little 'days of the week' book to show what my children have been doing the last few weeks of summer before school starts.  I have used Smeared Ink original digital stamp set called Stitchy Situation.  The pages were altered from coasters snagged from a restaurant.

Stitching in the Deets

Stitchy Situation set was printed out onto Whisper White card stock.
Each was colored in with Blendabilities.
Each has Ranger Black Accents on their hair.
Each has a small Pearl Jewel for the pin top in bellybuttons.
Silver marker for accents on eyes.
When dried and finished, each was fussy cut and then adhered to its day.

Used computer fonts to print out days onto copy paper.
Adhered copy paper to each side of coasters.
Sponged all edges and sides with inks.
Used fine tip Black Sharpie to make stitching on both sides of pages and to write in days of the week around/under images.
Sponged all the colors used on front and back pages.
Small Pearl Jewels on front under heading.

Crop-a-dile to make holes in corners.
Binder ring, 1", to hold together.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
