Coolest Bookmark Ever

I was so excited to try making these cool new bookmarks. I found the directions online (check below for the link). You take a 6x6 piece of patterned paper and fold it up and poof, coolest bookmark ever! Now, make sure you use a decent piece of paper. It must be patterned on both sides (well, I guess it doesn't "have" to - but you'll see white if you don't). Oh, and please leave a comment or drop me an email if you are interested in knowing the measurements to score at ... I have a scor-pal and I wrote down all the correct spots to score to make life a little easier.

My first photo will hopefully show you all the fold lines ...

My second folder is the first one I made.

This is the bookmark stuck in one of my handmade journals.


This is the second one I made...

And in a book...

And with the book mostly closed ...

(Details on the projects -- both of these are actually made with Creative Memories papers, the stamp is from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff ~linked below~ I colored with copics, spicas, and I put a little tiny bit of diamond glaze on the glasses where the glass would be.)
Go HERE to find this very stamptacular digital stamp! It is called Stacked Books.

Now, let me tell you some VERY important details about Lindsay's Stamp Stuff!

1. you can go HERE to shop at her store.

2. please go HERE to check out her super awesome blog.

3. take special note that she is running a SPECIAL on stamps -- for every $5 you spend, you get a digi-stamp for FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

4. go hopping to all the DT members blogs and check out all their lovely goodies. Melissa Janet Kim Lisa Margie Katt Tracey Tamara Rowena Olena Melissa Leanne

5. I heard a lovely rumor that some of Lindsay's awesome designs are being put out in real live rubber... stay tuned to her BLOG for details!!

I am sure that I am forgetting something. I am so excited to be a part of Lindsay's team - her stuff is super duper!!!!!!!!!! She even takes requests! This stamp is one she specifically designed for me. I saw this project HERE and wanted to make something with a book stamp on it ... I asked Lindsay and poof - she made a custom stamp. I've also printed out the stamp much bigger -- perfect to make a "normal" bookmark from - stay tuned, it'll show up soon enough!
