Hooked On Reading!!!

Hey yall! Happy Saturday! I hope you are enjoying a marvelous weekend! Today, I wanted to share a quick project I created for my Helmar DT blog post yesterday. As you know, I'm hooked on Helmar Adhesives! They are amazing!!! But I also have found myself hooked on something else....reading! As a child, I always enjoyed reading, but as I have grown, I have discovered that I have not had as much time to enjoy this passion. So the last few months, I have started reading again. I am loving every thrilling minute as I turn the pages of my novels!!! So, the other night I was laying in bed finishing up a chapter, and I realized that I did not have a bookmark. Well, as a scrapper, I had to fix that asap! So I sat down and created a bookmark using products from the preferred partners of the week over at Helmar: Hambly Screen Prints, Maya Road, and Purple Cows. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive and Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner on this project. Now, I have to tell you, I have yet another love...Purple Cows products! Oh my!!! They are amazing! I used the fabulous 2 In 1 Combo Trimmer to cut all of my paper. The guillotine on this is my favorite! Then, to cut my 'grass' I used the Freestyle Mouse. This is just the neatest tool. It glides across the paper like a knife cuts through butter. Then, to make the bookmark more durable, I used the Purple Cows Hot Laminator. After I had the bookmark laminated, I added some pearls to the eyes of the owl and to the tree for a bit of added dimension. Then, I took some Maya Road chipboard alphas, spritzed them with 'Bubblegum Pink' Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, and adhered them down using the 450. Last, I inserted an eyelet and added some funky fiber to the top. Here is my bookmark....
To show the dimension the pearls give....
Also, check out the Helmar CHA Make & Take!!! It's so cool! There is also info on the Helmar Booth at CHA!!! Go HERE.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Thanks for droppin' by and Happy Scrappin'!!!
Pin It!
