Sweet Bookmarks

Hello! The Imagine theme this month is "Books" so I decided to do something I love to make....bookmarks! They're fun, simple to make, totally customizable, and useful.

Supplies:
Imagine:
Memento Markers
Memento Ink Pad in Tuxedo Black

Other:
Sweet Stamp Shop: Book Club
Xyron: Creative Station with Laminating Cartridge
Stampendous: Mixed Media Paper
Acrylic Stamping Block
Twine/Ribbon
Hole Punch

Directions:

1. Begin by cutting Mixed Media Paper to your desired size bookmark. Stamp the images with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

2. Color the stamped images with Memento Markers. I love how blendable these markers are, yet they dry pretty quickly. They're perfect for quick coloring projects of all kinds. The stamps I used are all about books, and there's a stamp in the set that allows you to write out the info about a specific book. Being the Twi-Hard that I am, I decided to make my first bookmark about Twilight. The fact that you can rate the book, as well as write out the dates you've read it, makes for a fun keepsake.

Here's my second bookmark, which I just made generic. I colored it in with my Memento markers as well.
3. I want my bookmarks to last, so I laminated them with Xyron's Creative Station. Now they are sturdy and protected. I then punched a hole in the top of the bookmarks.

4. Choose some coordinating ribbon or twine, and when you've decided how long you want your tassels, cut the twine to twice the desired size. Fold in half, and push the looped end through the back of the bookmark to the front, as shown in the photo above.

Grab the ends of the twine, and pull through the loop. Pull the ends to tighten the loop. The bookmark won't rip because of the lamination.

Ta-da! Your bookmarks are complete! Now, go read a book!

Skill Level: Easy
Time to Complete: About 15 minutes per bookmark

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
