Hello fellow scrapbookers! Summer, for me, it the best time to read! I love reading on the beach and in a nice and cozy slightly shadowy spot in the back of my garden.

Inspired by the sunshiny weather I created a bunch of super cute and original bookmarks. You will see that it is very easy to create them and I think you will also agree that these can make great gifts too!

The first thing I did was create my bookmarks in Photoshop. I used Garden Party by Pink Reptile Designs for this project [ elements, papers, journal cards]

Then I printed everything twice : one copy for the background and one to cut elements from.

I prepare my scrapbooking supplies to create my hybrid bookmarks.
I used white cardstock, glue stick, scissors, 3D selfadhesive foam, dies (notch pattern) for my cuttlebug, black wire

I cut my printed bookmarks and then glued them on white cardstock to make them thicker and more ferm.

I cut the lemon jar from my second printed page to glue it on my bookmark. Before glueing it, I added 3D foam.

In the left image below you can see how I added a notch on my bookmark. The noth is there to make sure I can alip my bookmark over a book page and it will be stuck there more securedly.
For this, I used a die to cut the notch with my cuttlebug (dies from Kesi'art). You could of course of course use an exacto knife and cut it by hand.

My bookmark in my book :

I created 2 others bookmarks with different notches.

I added black wire and used 3D foam. Kill two birds in one stone : Grip the wire and glue the button!

I cut the notch with another die. As you can see this one is a little bit smaller.

My finished bookmark

I cut the happy day word strip and glued it on my bookmark with 3D selfadhesive foam

I created yet another hole with a differemt notch die.

And voilá this is what my 3 boomarks look like! Do you like them?

As always I hope you enjoyed my post and if I inspired you in any way, shape or form then by all means make a photo of your project and upload it to your gallery so you can leave a link in the comment section below! I'd love to see what you made!
