Corner Bookmark


I always enjoy the corner bookmarks that my friend Denise Marzec makes. She uses a tutorial Beate Johns put together for Splitcoast. In case the above photo looks wonky because of the angled sentiment, here's how the bookmark looks in action ...



... which makes the sentiment exactly right-side-up when you're holding the book :)

The sentiment is one that I just adore, although some days I feel more like a mosquito! It's from JustRite's Butterfly Gardens, available at Stamper's Dream, along with a whole host of other JustRite sets. The papers are from Jillibean Soup's Dutch Mustard and Echo Park's A Walk In the Park. Beate's tutorial is excellent, making this project a complete breeze to assemble.

This is also my sample for Kerri Michaud's Dare to Get Dirty challenge, which SCS Fan Club members can find in the DTGD thread on SCS.

Thanks so much for visiting today!
