Smarty Pants Blog Hop

Happy Saturday, everyone! It's time for our Smarty Pants Blog Hop! Yay!! Today, the PPPR design team and I are sharing nerdy, school, and smarty themed projects we created using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. There's a PPPR Gift Certificate up for grabs today, and I'm also sharing a cute little freebie with you. Oh, and we'll be kicking off our new challenge for the month today, too! Woo HOO! So, sit back, relax, and be sure to hop to each and every blog. You don't want to miss a thing today. :)

For the hop today, I created some fun little bookmarks that would be perfect for back to school classroom gifts:


I used the Friday Freebie and the Blog Hop Freebie to create these fun bookmarks. I actually cut several of them so my kiddos could give them out when school starts. It was really easy to make multiple bookmarks because I used the Print and Cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo to create them. To do that, I created an outset around the sweet bookworms, then I welded those to the bookmark shape. Then, I stamped some sentiments on them that I got from the Pretty Cute Stamps Adorkable stamp set. One of them turned out to be really big in order to fit the BIG BOOKS sentiment on it, but I figure that's okay because it will fit well in a really BIG BOOK! ;)  Those bookmarks are so versatile! You can add all sorts of cute images and cuts on the top of those to create bookmarks with all sorts of themes. Here are the products I used to create these cuties:
