Bookmark It!!!

Hello Everyone!!!!  Thank Goodness it is the week-end - time to kick back and play in my stamp room!!!  Today the first thing I did was play in this week's JustRite Challenge to Make a Bookmark!  Cool!  I love making bookmarks, they are quick and fun and make sweet little gifts for people!!  I decided to base mine around the new Victorian Nested Frames set which is part of the June Release, using the sentiment middle and only one of the frames.  I also used the new, matching Clear Horizontal Stamper....and guess what - the winner of the JustRite Challenge this week will WIN this Victorian Nested Frames Set, the Clear Horizontal Stamper Set AND the new All Occasion Nested Sentiments!!!  Just make a bookmark and link your project to the JustRite Blog HERE!!!

I started by stamping the sentiment and frame from Victorian Nested Frames in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white card and cutting it out with my trimmer.  Next I took some October Afternoon Thrift Shop DSP (that my sweet friend Lori gave me) and attached some black double looped ribbon that I found in the bottom of my ribbon bag!  I then matted it with some black bazzill that I punched one end with my new Martha Stewart Iron Gate border punch.  I then glued some yellow grosgrain ribbon to the back and then attached another black panel to the back to keep it all in place.

Stamps - Victorian Nested Frames (JustRite)
Paper - Black Bazzill, White, October Afternoon Thrift Shop
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Martha Stewart Iron Gate Border Punch, Black Double Looped Ribbon, Yellow Grosgrain Ribbon, Trimmer.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!!!  :)
