I saw this bookmark idea from a fellow crafter and thought it would be a fun gift for the mom's on Mother's Day. I also made book bags for each of them with the girls little handprints on them and then bought some iron on printer paper and put their pics on the other side. I also got to use my coveted Beadazzler (just kidding about the coveted part, but it works awesome on canvas).
This one I used glimmer mists and lace. I got a ton of lace from somewhere ready to throw it out and after glimmer misting it, thought it looked great. These pics don't do it justice as the glimmer doesn't show.
I embossed on the spellbinder, added my Maya Road chipboard, glimmer misted the whole thing including the bird and wing. Aren't those colors amazing with the mist. Then chalked the embossed paper for the overall look. Loved the final product for all 3.
I had to make my close friend Julia one for her birthday as she is an avid book reader and she told me that no one has ever made her anything. Unfortunately, this was all I was able to do due to remodeling and chaos in the house, but know she will love the thought.
This fits perfectly on a book. Better than my scraps that I usually throw in there.

This is a card I made for a Thank you card swap with some girlfriends. I made matching envelopes which turned out disastrous because I cut the paper the wrong size and had to start all over including the background paper for the card. The final product turned out great and had fun with some shimmerz and copic pens. I also used my cuttlebug emboss plate with my new Spellbinder which I LOVE! This card opens up to a tri-fold card and keeps it closed with the ribbon.
