Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Sometimes It Helps To Get The Yucky Stuff Out Of The Way!I knew I had some work I needed to get done today and I was tempted to just avoid it and head straight into the craft room. However, I resisted the urge and decided to buckle down and get the "yucky stuff" out of the way so that then I could enjoy the craft room with a clear head! It worked! Unfortunately, I can't show you what I just completed since I decided to try my hand at doing another submission...I'll let you know what happens!
What I can share with you is this fun magnetic bookmark card! I sent this to one of my wonderful customers - she is a gem! Making the bookmark is simple. I took a piece of Regal Rose card stock and folded it over. Then, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Two Tags Die...except that I placed the fold of the Regal Rose card stock just inside the outside line of the Tag die so that it did not cut the paper into 2 pieces - instead, the fold remained. I used adhesive magnetic tape on the inside of the bookmark so that it can easily hold its place in a book. I decorated both sides with various stamps and those great little rhinestone jewels. To place it on the front of the card, I just stapled a small strip of Daffodil Delight card stock and hung the bookmark over the middle section. I hope you like it! I might just have to make a quick video to show you how it's done - although that might not be for another week or so...I've got some other yucky stuff to get out of the way! :) Oooh - and Pam, if you're reading this....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!! :)
