A Bookmark Challenge

Hello everyone! I have been so busy of late that I have not been posting as often, and I am not getting around to comment on all your wonderful work as much as I’d like either!  I’m hoping I’ll find some extra time over the weekend.

It was my turn to host this week’s Crafty Creations Challenge and I chose bookmarks as the theme.  I love to read, even though I find little time to do it lately!   I made  two different styles for the dt samples.  Let me know what you think! Oh, and I’m sponsoring the challenge this week too!  Hope to see some of your bookmarks in the challenge!!

I paper pieced the chair by stamping it once on the turquoise and gold and cutting out the upholstery pieces, then I stamped it again on the rich brown and cut that one out.  I pieced it together and mounted it on Very Vanilla card stock.  The shape is cut using my new nestabilities die cuts Labels Four.  It’s also embossed around the edges, but you can’t really see that in the photo. The chair stamp is from the Chairs For You Flourishes set.  Isn’t it a great stamp?

The ribbon bookmark is stamped with the Flourishes Birds in Vines set, and embossed in black.  You can use the clip at the top to paperclip the book page or hang it outside of the book as it’s traditionally done.

Hope you’ll join us by entering your bookmarks in our Crafty Creations Challenge this week!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!

Thanks for visiting! I have always needed to express my creativity, and I am the happiest when I do so. My blog is a way to challenge myself creatively, keep me motivated and inspired, to explore new ideas, and to share them with others! I feel the need to express myself in new ways...I hope you'll join me!
