Bookmark Surprise!

What does it take to get a kid to read?  Something fun!!  As a mom, when I'm trying to read I'm constantly interrupted... so this cute mark is a great way to hold my spot while being cute (even if I'm just a kid at heart).  Create and celebrate reading and the wonder a book can offer with this cute bookmark.  Join me in this folded paper bookmark that is cute and easy to use.

Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper (#132994)
Sahara Sand card stock (#121043)

No matter what you want to bookmark, from your cookbook, novel, bible, or Idea Book & Catalog... this bookmark stays where you place it, is light and easy while not destroying the page.
Create this bookmark with ANY pretty Designer Series Paper you chose!  Here the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper comes out so cute!!
 
Cut a 4" x 2" strip of paper - this is also a great product that doesn't waste your 12" papers and fun to make as gifts!
Fold one top corner down to the middle, this will create one side of the triangle. 
Fold the second one down to meet in the middle.  Using my Bone Folder to crisp the edges.
Stamp this Surprise Bunny from the Storybook Friends stamp set in Stazon Jet Black ink and apply to the Sahara Sand card stock.
 
Highlight his tummy and tail with the White Chalk Stampin' Marker (so cute!).  Accent the bow with the Summer Starfruit Stampin' Write Marker and the Nose and Ear with the Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin' Write Marker from the IN-Color Marker collections.
 
Use the Decorative Label Punch to pop this cute shape out.  Adhere 1/2 of it to the 'open' ends of the bookmark - this keeps the ends together while being cute!!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
