bookmarks

I took Jen's advice from my other bookmark post and made a few more to give away as gifts. (Be proud Moxie Fab World I'm actually going to give these paper crafts). I decided to try a few different color themes.


This bookmark uses this week's Play Date Cafe colors.

This bookmark uses the Off the Wall Craftiness colors (Kim-- talk about a lot of pink!!!). And ladies I want you to be proud- I don't own a die cut machine or the great PTI Mat 3 die, so I've just stamped the stamp from the All Booked Up set, cut it out and flipped it over.

And this is Ben's bookmark for the Children's Challenge Corner. I love how he's taken my bits and pieces of stamped items from my craft table and made the bookmark his own special unique item.

Materials: First bookmark, PTI All Booked Up, Versacolor black ink, Fiskars Circle Punch, Stampin Up circle punch, American Crafts red ribbon, green and blue card stock from stash, Stampin Up red card stock, corner rounder punch

Second Bookmark: PTI All Book Up, Studio G pink ink, Studio G grey ink, pink art paper from stash, Karen's digital dandelion poem, ribbon from stash, corner rounder punch, Fiskars circle punch

Ben's bookmark: PTI All Booked Up stamp, Versacolor bamboo ink, PTI On My Couch Additions couch and cat, Studio G pink and grey ink, Stampin Up Baja breeze card stock, PTI cloud, teal ink from Spotlight, Stampin Up red card stock, green card stock scrap, Fiskars circle punch
