Bookmarks!




First - go buy this stamp (stack of books) HERE. You also need to check out her AWESOME NEW SET - it's embossed backgrounds -- DIGI-NESTIES for only $3!!!!!! She also has her first new CHRISTMAS SET in the store for $1.50!! You could also just go buy out her whole STORE and be about as happy as can be... (oh, I forgot to mention Lindsay is now featured on a new website - MY GRAFICO - check it out!)
Details on how I made these! First, I hope you can tell, each of the stamps (and therefore the bookmarks) are different sizes. I printed the stack of books in different sizes and then had fun coloring with different colors within a color family (it helps me to figure out which markers will blend to see them all in a row like this). It is fun to do the monochrome thing. I then used my janome sew mini to sew the stamp onto a sheet of bazzzzzillll. Then I used some supertacky red tape stuff to attach another piece of bazzil (in a coordinating shade of brown) to make the bookmark sturdy and protect my stitching. I set the giant eyelets with my cropadilebigbite. Then tied in a bit of fiber... oh, I also used my spica pens for the apples, and used a teeny bit of glossy accents (diamond glaze stuff) on the glasses. These bookmarks make great stocking stuffers, presents to hand out at work or church, and sell for $1 at craft shows like HOT CAKES!

Thanks for looking, now head on over to the other designers' blogs for lots more eye candy, and Lindsay's blog, because she is totally creative in the NEATEST ways!!
