Paper Hoarders DT - Tell Us A Story

Good Morning, Crafties!  Paper Hoarders is having some fun today with a theme of Tell Us A Story, so we of  LoveBug Creations have an offering for this.

From Mama LoveBug: I absolutely love mysteries and enjoy the movie and board game Clue so I've made some bookmarks of the principal players in that as my project today.  A long time ago I bought a paper piecing collection called Clue from Treasure Box Designs and used my fussy cutting skills (if I have any) to make these.

First I cut out Coordinations card stock using the appropriate colors.  I used a punch on the individual characters after printing them off my computer as I don't own a machine for SVG.  I also printed off the background in this set with the game pieces.  I did a little research on the net to get a famous quote from the movie for each character and used my Spellbinders die to make a fancy plate for each quote up at the top.  I also took a quote that symbolizes the game as a whole and adhered that to each bookmark.  I added a little bling to each and had so much fun!

Here's the entire Clue gang - "who done it"? - I'll give you a hint- it's the character who's photo is slightly different than the others......LOL!

Kimi here...for my project I used the sketch Tanya gave us if we so wanted to use. She got it from Pagemaps and it will also be used as for this month's challenge in the Paper Hoarders Facebook Group! The winner will receive a fabulous prize so if you want to join the fun swing by Facebook! :)

For my book I picked "The Twilight Saga" by Stephanie Meyers. I'm sure you've heard of it. If not you should definitely check this series out! I love it! I see this as a layout Bella might have in her scrapbook! As I said I followed the sketch...Used "The Immortal Love" Stack from DCWV (LOVE THIS STACK!), some string, a button, and pearls from my stash and my cricut for the stamp shapes! I also used an excerpt from the "New Moon" book as my background image! Hope you've enjoyed our projects for today! Don't forget to leave us some love and swing by Tanya's Blog to see the wonderful projects our other DT members came up with!!!
Bug Hugs,
