Hello, well it's time for my TSG ABC Friday post . Remember when we were kids and ABC stood for "Already been chewed"? Well now that we're all grown up and color all day and play with paste & cardstock, it stands for Anything But a Card! So today, I made a magnet bookmark! My in-laws read alot and you know those refrigerator magnets you get from like the Pizza place, etc? Well they would fold one in half and use it as a book mark! BRILLIANT! The bookmark won't fall out of the book because there's a page in between the two magnet pieces. So I took this idea and made it pretty! The set is called Dance, by There She Goes and the sentiment is one of my faves or all time!!!! Of course I LOVE the flowers too :) The front flap of my bookmark is a transparency so it's hard to photograph.
Here's the bookmark holding my place. The sentiment is stamped on white, but I took a few Copics and added some stippling using RV10, YG0000, YR00. To make the sentiment panel pop a little I "edged" it using E47, just ran the side of the E47 along the edges. The flower is popped up from the book mark a bit, and I raised the flower so it would stick out of the book. Doing that also allowed me to use a brad in the center of the flower... it won't get squished or ruin the book.
This is the bottom panel of the bookmark. I just added some pretty patterned paper to it, and the black piece is the magnet (it hides behind the sentiment panel).
Well I hope you like my bookmark! Thanks for popping by & Happy Friday!
