Timeless Tuesday...Corner Bookmark


Well today's Timless Tuesday is an oldie but goodie...the corner bookmark. Haven't done one of these in years but do happen to love them. There are a couple of ways you can do these and one of them is super simple by cutting the corner off an envelope and using that to decorate. You can also use a template and make your own corner ...think about it and do as you please. I did two and one each way but the one I'm showing is the envelope one cause it came out pretty dang cute if I do say so myself. Used some cute designer paper to cover the corner, used Miss Martha's punch to give a fancy edge , and 2 circle dies from Spellbinder's to add my tagline word...Smile, and to finish it off I added a little K & Co. stick on flower.

How cute and easy is that? Well it's very easy but also pretty crafty. If you're trying to read my book...it's the Hunger Games which is pretty awesome and so engaging I spent practically the whole day reading yesterday.

Found my new coat at the new JCP's for just $20. Wow what a bargain. The whole store is on sale today and every day from now on. I guess it will be my new home away from home. Woke up to a sprinle of snow but just a dusting and I can live with that. Take care fellow stampers and have a great week. Can you believe I did TT on Tuesday for a change?

This is so pretty Pat. I love that little rose.

I have not been in JCP's in a long time. I heard about their new way of marketing. I do know that the old CEO of Target left and went to JCP's and that everything will be the same price every day with no sales. I will have to go take a look. :)
Hugs~
