I was asked to make a bookmark for a friend several weeks ago and finally got around to getting it made!
This is for a teenage girl and I was asked to put her name on it and add a turtle. So the first image that came to my mind was Rachelle Anne Miller’s Playtime image. (If you love her animals as much as I do, you can purchase them here at All That Scraps.)
The bookmark was a pretty simple design but I think it turned out ok in the end. I didn’t want to add too many layers or any bulky embellishments that would ruin the pages of a book. The butterfly was left over from a previous project, as was the green paper by DCWV. It was a piece of scrap from the card I posted yesterday. The DCWV papers are nice and heavy and I knew it would be just fine to stand alone as a base without layering it. And I was visiting a friend the other day who was showing me her Cricut machine, so I had her cut out the letters and photo turn. I figured a die-cut photo turn would work much better than a real one here. Then a few faux stitches, some Stickles and ribbon finished it off.
