Keep Your Place.....

Are you as bad as me with your books when it comes to remembering where you stopped last?! I fall asleep or I close the book and think "oh I can remember where I stopped no problem"! HAH! Yeah right....5 minutes later I am still looking for familiar words to remind me where I left off! Well, what if you had one of these pretty bookmarks to put in there?!






I used two stamps from The Rubber Cafe that I received in my Design Team package this month! I LOVE these stamps! The butterfly is called Small Paisley Butterfly and is one of 6 different butterflies available there! The dragonfly is called Small Paisley Dragonfly and is available in 2 sizes! I love these stamps, wait I said that already! There is just so much that you can do with them! Seriously! Yesterday I posted a card with the dragonfly where I did colored ink and this bookmark is using the "emboss resist" technique where you emboss them, rub ink over the whole project but then rub the ink off of the embossed areas and it really "pops" out with the color! I used all SU ink for these, the colored flowers are "Prima's" with a tiny brad from "Making Memories" and, the white ones are from a pail of wedding confetti from Michael's. The leaves are from scrap paper and I punched them out using my Martha Stewart leaf punch!
They sort of make you want to go read a book just to use them don't they?! I just got done with the series "Twilight"! Yeah, I know, behind the curve but that's okay! I still enjoyed the book reading all 4 in less then 3 weeks! He he he! I never have to wonder where my kids get their love of reading from! LOL!

I hope you like them!

Until next time....

These bookmarks are just beautiful. I have a bad habit of leaving mine in the books when I take them back to the library, but something as lovely as this might make me a little more careful. Great Mother's Day project!
