Birthday card & bookmark

After my notebook frenzy, I've discovered bookmarks.  Papertrey Ink's bookmark die makes it super easy to crank them out (literally!)  Here's a set I made for my Godson's sister Sophie (shhh don't tell her). 

I often cut letters or sentiments with my cricut but for this bookmark I wanted to stamp a monogram instead.  Since I don't have any alphabet stamps I improvised and inked up the 's' in the 'notes' stamp from PTI's Take Note. Maybe I don't need alphabet stamps after all?  Here's what I came up with:

Paper - PTI stamper's select white, SU Cutie Pie DSP
Stamps - PTI birthday  bash sentiments, take note (tag circle & monogram)
Ink - Versafine onyx black
Accessories - SU so saffron grosgrain ribbon, circut die cuts, foam dimensionals, PTI vintage cream button twine


  1. Very, very cute set! Your "S" turned out super! Very clever to use Take Note to stamp it! Love that. You did a great job on these!

  2. WOW! I love the colors, and your letters are really poping out. Good job. and clever to think of using the Take Note stamp. good idea.

  3. Beautiful gift! I love those bold colors and the S looks perfect on the bookmark.

  4. Oh, these are great! What a fun ensemble.

  5. What a great gift, Anne! I'm sure she'll be so happy to use her new bookmark! I still don't have that die, but all these bookmarks I'm seeing are pushing me over the edge!

  6. Wonderful colours and patterns. I love the way you coordinated the card and book mark - so sweet.
