...Okay, So I Lied

I said that I wouldn't be posting again until I returned next week, but I had to show these to all of you! I am still going away to a stamping retreat for the weekend, and I was wanting to make something for all of the ladies that were going to be there with me. I decided to make these adorable bookmarks that I found at Jen del Muro's blog HERE. I simply L-O-V-E them...and they are so easy to make! I hope they like them!
I used "Baroque Motifs" and the following cardstock colors: Riding Hood Red, Basic Black, and Whisper White. The flourish was stamped in Jet Black Staz-On Ink, and the flower was in Riding Hood Red Classic Ink. I used my SpellBinders' Scalloped Square Nestabilitiesto create two bases for each bookmark. I have to thank Pam and Janet at this point...they bought the Nesties for me as an early birthday present...I have such wonderful friends! Love you , Ladies! I scored one one of the bases 7/8″ down from the top, then attached the 2 pieces together using SNAIL Adhesive above the score line. This creates a clean line, so the bookmark can rest on the pages (seen above). The bookmark is held together at the top using the 1-3/4" Circle Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Antique Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, Silver Organdy Ribbon, and a Crop-a-Dile.

Now that's it until Monday...I promise! LOL! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a phenomenal weekend. I'm hoping we will see some snow flurries with all of this cold weather moving in {fingers crossed}! Until later...
