Bookmark Challenge

I love to read and when I saw the bookmark challenge on Change of Heart, I knew I needed to create bookmarks. You also get a chance to win some great candy too. Double motivation for me to create! I created 3 bookmarks for this challenge. I tried to keep them looking as different from each other as I could but when you sit down to create, you end up making things with similar ideas (sound familiar?). Anyway, atleast the colors are all different. I went shopping today and picked up some new papers which I used for these bookmarks.

The first one you see above uses only one dp though it looks like two. You might be wondering why I have a teddy bear in the middle. Let me explain. I was thinking about little kids when I was making this one. Little kids like to hear bedtime stories and they snuggle in bed with their soft toys. So, thats where the bear comes in for my bookmark. I also have stuff toys on my bed but they are just there cause they give a good look and girls just love them, right? The colors are also sober enough so that someone older could use the bookmark too.

This is a green bookmark. I used a different layout on this one then the second one. Love how the punched butterflies fill it up. I wanted to place them in a sort of semicircle for a long time now and finally I did.

My scanner just seems to hate yellow. It always turns out really bright. This bookmark was inspired by spring. When its everywhere, how can you ignore it? Lots of bright colors used on this one. I got some nice printed ribbon pasted on and vellum stickers to match the dp. This bookmark is flat in the true sense. Everything on it is quite thin so no matter how many layers and embellishments are on it, its as thin as a single layer of thick cardstock.

If you like, you can also join in the fun by making a bookmark but you'll have to be super quick as the draw ends quite soon. You can find the link on my blog candy roll. The one that says Change of Heart- Candy + challenge is the link.

PS- Please ignore my poor picture quality. The USB Cable is still to be found.

Happy Crafting
