You're #1 In My Book

Back again today to share another bookmark! CAS has always been my favorite--I love the impact of a simple design. Today's bookmark I used some lined paper with a cute sentiment from Way to Go Kiddo (I just love that name! And I call Alexander kiddo too!).

I made it into a double sided bookmark and embossed the back using a PTI impression plate to give it some dimension and interest.

My new favorite crafty thing to do is make double sided bookmarks with impressions on the back--it adds interest without adding bulk! ;)

And I did another version to look like well worn paper. I roughed up the edges and added ink blots. I love the subliminal message to this one--that even though you're not perfect, you're still number one in my book! ;)

And it's been awhile since I posted an updated pic of Alexander--here he is dressed up as a chef!

That's all for today!! Have a wonderful sunny day!

Simply Jane notebook set!

Sorry I have been MIA recently! Life has been completely crazy. I am never giving up on crafting or blogging though so I do hope you'll continue follow me when I am able to post. I've really missed my blog friends and posting!

Last winter I put a few of my handmade things for sale in a store in the mall. It was a lot of fun and it got me crafting again. This set is one of the things I made and it sold almost right away (so sorry I couldn't get a better pic). I'll be posting some of the others over the next few days.

I love the PTI Simply Jane set, but hadn't really put it to use. It's such a unique set and I love to read so it's one of my favorites.

I used the Simply Jane paper and dies to make a notebook, pen and bookmark set. I rolled up one of the patterned papers inside the pen to coordinate and used the bookmark die (one of my most used dies) to finish the set!

Thanks for stopping by!! See you again real soon! :)
