Valentine Greetings bookmark

Hello, my crafty peeps! Hope you had a great weekend! I’m excited to announce that I’ve joined the UnstampaBelles design team – woo-hoo! I’m very excited and am looking forward to creating with these talented ladies! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #86 – Simply Bright & Cheerful! The twist this month is Arty Creations. And there’s a prize in the mix… a $15 gift voucher (via PayPal or direct to an online store)… so let’s see what you got! The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite!

I created a fun Valentine’s Day bookmark. It’s been many years since I created a bookmark and I thought this would be a fun debut project for the UnstampaBelles Challenges.


The best aspect of being a new designer on this design team is that there is no stamping allowed, hence the name UnstampaBelles. I do occasionally create a project without stamping but not very often, so this is a challenge and I’m definitely up for it! I love how this bookmark turned out!


I started with a tag, then added papers, a layered image and sentiment, and finally a few finishing touches such as the heart stickers and gold Skinny Washi tape. This is absolutely one of the cutest images I’ve ever worked with and I can’t wait to gift this!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Tim Holtz Distress Tag; Papers, Image and Sentiment from Polly’s Paper Studio Charming Cherubs Valentine Creativity Kit; Colorbok Primary Cardstock
Dies/Punches: Stampin’ Up 3/4″ circle punch, 1/4″ hole punch
Accessories:  Heart Stickers from October Afternoon Daily Flash Girl Talk; Me & My Big Ideas Gold Skinny Washi Tape; Prairie Bird Boutique Red Wrinkled Ribbon; Hemptique Bamboo Cord

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and will come on over and play with us this month! You’ll see new inspiration every week! We can’t wait to see what you create without the use of stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. That cherub is “stinkin’ cute” as an American friend said to me once! Your bookmark is an inspiration and I am sure a recipient was chuffed. Thanks for becoming a member of our team and we look forward to some more fabulous pieces of work!
