Vintage Bookmark

Today is my day to share my creation for Verve's Project Parade. Our theme is It's A Girl Thing: Celebrating the Women in Our Lives. If you haven't been to the Verve blog yet this week, it's worth catching up. The projects so far have been fantastic!

I decided to make a bookmark for my mom highlighting one of the quotes from Because of You. My mom is an avid reader, and I love the thought that every time she picks up her book, she'll be reminded of the influence she's had in my life.

This was a super easy and quick project to make. I posted some basic how-to information on the Verve blog. Also be sure to head over there to see how you can play along for a chance to win a $25 Verve gift certificate!

Thanks for visiting,



Stamps: Because of You (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Basic Grey Porcelain dp, Papertrey Vintage Cream card stock
Ink: Stampin' Up Always Artichoke craft, Ranger Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Accessories: Papertrey Sweet Blush vintage buttons; May Arts burlap string, Spellbinders Labels 4 and Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities, ribbon (source unknown), foam tape
