LOC Just a Note

The Bookmarks I have been making have been popular and I thought it was time I made a few more using the Layers of Color Joyful Noise art stamp set!  I love this G-clef and it is the perfect size for this project.

These bookmarks are great to use up those scraps of card stock, I no longer think 'what can I do with these scraps,' but look forward to making the bookmarks - they are so quick!  My DH and I had a stall at the Markets at the local Homestead last Sunday and I sold a few of these...along with some cards.

I cut the image out and attached it to some embossed CS, I love the texture this gives and the way it automatically dresses something up.  The top corners of the bookmark have been punched with the 'Sunburst' Fiskar Border Punch, I love finding more than one use for things - these corners are so pretty!

Some narrow gingham ribbon has been knotted over some lace and wrapped around the bookmark and three brads that are part of a RAK finished it off nicely.  I added a panel of the embossed CS to the back of the bookmark...I have found that 3-4 layers (in total) of CS make it strong - and that is a good thing!!  LOL! Ribbon has been threaded through an eyelet at the top of the bookmark and secured through a bead.

This bookmark did not make it to the markets, a neighbour saw it and bought it straight away - I think I had better make a few more!!

Thanks for looking and those lovely comments you leave me, you make my heart smile!!  It is Saturday night here and I am just chilling out, our kids have been out at various events and slowly returning home - I do enjoy this time on Friday nights, it is not that I can't craft any other time, I am blessed to be able to create whenever I want, within reason, I guess it is just knowing that tomorrow there is no rush to get out the door by a certain time, we can 'ease' into the day - beautiful!!  I hope you have a great weekend!!  God bless you!
