Owl Bookmark, Pocket & Pin...and Some News!

Hello everyone...happy Friday :) This week at The Outlawz Copic/Promarker challenge we have a very easy theme for you...ANYTHING GOES...and don't forget our OPTIONAL calendar page twist. We have a new file for April 2013 all ready and waiting for you to collect and print out :)  If you've missed the first few months pages, the files are all in our folder so you can download them and catch up. We'd love to see what you do with them and at the end of the year we'll be drawing a winner by random from the completed gotta be in it to win it lol

Sadly, this is my last challenge with The Outlawz Copic/Promarker DT. I have decided to step down at the end of this challenge as I need to free up a lot more of my time for a new venture I'm beginning...NO...not another DT!! This is a small business venture I hope to launch soon...I'll keep you posted and when I have my website up and running I'll post about it here :)  I am going to miss my teamies a LOT. They are the BEST group of ladies anyone could ever wish to work with. I've been very privileged to work beside these talented girls for the last 14 months and I've enjoyed every moment of it. I hope to find time to play for fun in the odd challenge, once I get organised and settled with the new venture...after all, I have a calendar to finish this year lol
Thanks girls for all your friendship and support...and to Colleen, thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of such a warm, friendly, encouraging bunch of designers :) BIG HUGS to you all xxx

PS  My blog is likely to be neglected for a bit but I'll be back as soon as I can!!!
Now onto my project lol.............

I haven't made a calendar page this time...I've made a bookmark & pocket:

I made this as a thank you present for one of my teamies at The Outlawz. I was desperate to acquire a ticket punch and couldn't find one anywhere in Australia...frustrating!!  Maureen came to the rescue and sent me her SU one that she said she never used....I was SOOOOO happy to get this punch and use it a LOT!! So thank you Maureen for your generosity, I really appreciate it....*waving and sending hugs*  I sent this off to Maureen last month so it would arrive before I blogged it for our challenge :)

I've used one of my fave owls from Pink Cat Studio for the bookmark and added the wording in My Memories Suite...LOVE that program! I then printed onto Neenah Classic Ivory and coloured Mrs Owl with Copics and glitter pens. The pocket and bookmark backing are DP from the SU Sale-a-Bration catty, called Everyday Enchantment. I LOVE every paper in this pack and wish it was in the main catty so I could BUY more of it :) The colours and designs are beautiful.

I made a pocket to slip the bookmark into.  Made my own template and used an SU border punch to decorate the flap. The lovely frame behind the flower is a Spellbinders die and the flower is another  handmade one, which has the edges inked with a Copic marker before spraying and scrunching the petals.

I also made a little Owl Pin to send. I saw this idea and I must admit I've gone a bit mad with it...well, I can't resist cute little owls you know! This is the one I made for Maureen:

And here are the pressies all together:

The little pins are so easy to make and I find it really don't have to think about much of the process once you do one or two :)  They are coated with SU Crystal Effects and have a brooch pin on the back for attaching to whatever you fancy.

Well, if you're still with me, you deserve a medal lol I think this is the longest post I've ever written!!

I am still sad that you are leaving the Outlawz, Lynne! But I wish you the very best!
This present is just too sweet--and funny. Love the bookmark, it made me smile! The envelope is so pretty! And the pin is adorable. I am sure Maureen was tickled to receive this. :^)

Your bookmarks are always fabulous Lynne (everything you create is!) & the co-ordinating pocket you designed is brilliant. The little owlie badge is sooo cute too - he looks like he might have had a hard night though, rofl! It's sad times leaving the Outlawz - I'm sure you will be greatly missed. All the best for your new endeavour - it will be a winner! Big hugs :)
