time for a book thursday - and an important announcement
Cute "Lil´Miss Poppy" is the perfect stamp to use on a bookmark - by image and by size. Here in Germany school started one week ago and there are so many kids out there that will soon read their very first book on their own. And getting a book with a very special bookmark will make them enjoy it even more.
I colored her using my Prismacolor pencils and added her to my bookmark, which is 3 1/8" x 6 1/8". I also added a second layer of paper and - to make it match the use it is created for - a piece from a newspaper. I then decorated my bookmark with some flowers, swirls and lace taking care of the fact that it still has to fit into a book. So no high embellishments were used on it. I finished it with a tab and some ribbons - and now I am unpatiently waiting until I can give it away.
And now on to the exciting news we have for you:
Tomorrow we will have a blog hop - showing you Belles´n´Whistles wonderful fall collection, designed by Elisabeth Bell. All the DT members are so excited - and I am sure you´ll be as excited as we are once you see the beautiful new stamps! We´ll start with the hop tomorrow 9 am CEST (Central European Summer Time) here at the Belles´n´Whistles blog. More details can be found here tomorrow that time - just make sure you´ll be here!
And since this seems to be a tradition here also I have a question for you: what´s your favourite book-related craft you´ve made or seen so far? No matter if it was about a book, inspired by a book or even a little book you made yourself - please let us know!
