Introducing Book Club...

Today, I have four very different projects to share, all using the new bookmark dies from Papertrey Ink, called Book Club.

This first project is a fun little teacher gift using the new Stitched Bookmark Dies and the Stitched Apple die from last release.


I used Harvest Gold felt and stitched up a bookmark.  On the top, I pinned on a little felt heart.  I added a bad around the middle with the "handmade for you" stamp from Teachers Apple, stamped on a scalloped square from Limitless Layer Dies.  I covered the top of the notepad and the inside of the pen with Pure Poppy Bitty Boxes paper.  I finished it off with a Simply Chartreuse Bow.  


This next project is a fun little Christmas tag using 2 of the new Bookmark dies.  


I used Bookmark #2 and #3 and layered them up.  I cut the both shorter by layering them up to shorter the bookmark into a tag. I stamped a sentiment from the new Seasons Greetings and heat embossed it with white Filigree Embossing Powder.  I added in some stickles on the bottom for a little sparkle.  The top is made with a Simply Chartreuse Satin Dot Ribbon and some red twine.  I added in 2 silver bells for a little more detail.


These new bookmark dies are really fun!  There are 3 different styles and have so many possibilities for things other than just bookmarks.  Here is a CAS bookmarks, featuring one of the quotes from the new stamp set called Book Club...


I stamped the flowers after cutting out the bookmark and then added in the sentiment in black ink.  I found some purple floss to give it that traditional bookmark look. 


Basic Bookmark #2 has a fun CAS look.  I love the lines on the bottom that give it that arrow look.  I used the bookmark here for a little card decorating...


I cut one each, out of Kraft, Enchanted Evening and White.  I stamped the sentiment in Enchanted Evening and then added some gold card stock strips in the background.  (The inside of this card says Happy Birthday...just realized I didn't photograph that part!)


I hope you have enjoyed my Bookmark projects today.  I know there is lots more to see today!
