Bookmark Design: Beatrix Potter from Nicecrane Designs
Hello!  I hope that you all have had a good week thus far. 

Today I am posting a couple of bookmarks that I made using designs from Nicecrane Designs I thought that they'd make a cute gift accompanied by a stuffed animal or even a Beatrix Potter book itself.

I decided that given the sadness of the last couple weeks with the loss of my mother in law, that I was due for some silliness; so, I photographed each of the bookmarks with some friends of mine.

General Notes:
  • Meet Valentine.  He recently had a bath so he is nice and clean.  He was a gift that my hubby gave me for our very first Valentine's Day as a married couple which means Valentine will be 25 years old on the fourteenth of February.  He still has a very special place in my heart. 
  • I figured I better show you a closer picture of the bookmark as well...
General Notes:
  • Meet Quack.  He was a gift from my parents when I was a teenager.  Goodness, he is even older than Valentine.  I don't remember specifically when I got him but I'm going to guess that I was about fifteen.  
  • Here is a closer picture of this one as well...
Digital Image Details: 
  • Beatrix Potter Bookmarks:  Both of these bookmarks were created with templates from the Beatrix Potter Bookmark set.  For this first one, I used the image you see second in from the right of the preview below.  The second bookmark was created using the last one on the right.  Click on the name or the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.

Paper Products:

  • The base of each of the bookmarks was created with Michael's Recollection's Cardstock,white.
  • The ribbon used on both bookmarks is Crafts brand and was purchased at Dollarama. 
  • I used a star shaped Crafts brand punch, also purchased at Dollarama, to create the hole in each bookmark. 
Challenges I am hoping to enter...

These are all lovely...I love that you photograph them with the same animal. Wonderful attention to detail. Thank you for linking your card to our Challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you God's Word in Isaiah 43:18-19 which tells us, " "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland." Have a wonderful day filled with the blessings of the Lord Jesus!
