I haven't had a lot of time for creating lately, but I bought some new scrapbooking supplies that I couldn't wait to use! My older daughter saw the chipboard embellishments from this line and fell in love with the gumball machine, and that got me thinking: rather than use the chipboard for a scrapbook page that would rarely be seen, I decided to make bookmarks that my girls could use and enjoy every day. This darling paper, with its vintage book design, is just the perfect thing for a bookmark!
I added some embellishments from my stash -- no reason a bookmark can't be girly, right?
I also decorated the back, adding some pretty papers and making a little pocket with a secret note in it for each of my girls.
This was a quick, fun little project! It was fun to make something again!
