Where did the week go?! I have a feeling my week off work just started - but it's already come to the end. Can't believe I need to go to work tomorrow already! O.o Time just flew by! But I guess it's always like this when you are having fun, right?
The other day I was asked to make a bookmark for an 8 years old girl who loves to read. I love making corner bookmarks, so I decided to make one like this.
I decided to use soft pastel colours for the bookmark and the adorable teddy image from Folia. I colored the image with distress inks, cut it out with my craft knife, raised it on foam pads and glued it on the bookmark. As for the paper goes, I only used scraps of papers that I had in my stash. I was asked to write the girl's name on the bookmark too. So I used my alphabet stamps from G studio and stamped "Katarina" (girl's name). I cut each stamp seperately and glued them at the bottom. I didn't embellish the bookmark a lot. I just did some dots around the circle with my Viva decor pearl pen and I also used some beautiful pink ribbon from Crafty ribbons. I also used my border punch, Spellbinders' picot edge circle die and Quick cutz' circle die. The circle behind the image was embossed with Cuttlebug's Polka dot embossing folder.
I hope Katarina will like it!
