The current challenge at Addicted to CAS is "school".  When I was still an educator, the kids loved the booksmarks I made for them for various holidays.  I first made a card like this quite a few years ago and it was someone else's idea, but can't remember where I saw it.  This card is for my daughter with her initials on it.

It is constructed so that the bookmark just slips into the background piece.  Some old text paper, Graphic45 ABC Primer papers, and Hero Arts stamps were used.

Thanks for visiting today and your kind comments.  Betty


  1. Great idea. I love the gingham on kraft and the letters background.
    I am a reader and love book marks. I got a kindle while I was traveling so much before I moved east, but now I am back to the hardback books, and I stamped myself a nice bookmark not to long ago.

  2. A neat and clever idea and take on the challenge Betty
    Super classy and a perfect sentiment.
    Thanks for sharing and playing along at ATCAS challenge.
