My Attempt at Bookmarks

For the giveaways going on in June I thought it would be neat to throw bookmarks in with the prizes. I haven't made a lot yet because the lovely Wal Mart in my town no longer carries pre-cut bookmarks so I'll probably be using card stock in future ones. Anywhoo, I decided to do Sarah Dessen novels for them. This is what I've come up with so far (go easy on me, first time bookmark maker here):





The titles are: Just Listen, That Summer (I'm kind of proud of that one), Someone Like You, Keeping the Moon, and This Lullaby. I thought maybe doing some kind of quotes from the books would be a neat idea. So I gave This Lullaby a try, and the old saying 'less is more' couldn't be truer.

I've been a horrible slacker on reading this past week and a half. You can blame a friend of mine that told me to watch Friday Night Lights and I have been hooked on that show. I didn't think I would really like it because I'm not a big football person, but holy friggin' moly one look at Tim Riggins (Taylor Kitsch) and I was sold! So now I'm going to go have my own read-a-thon so expect reviews to be posted soon!

I think the bookmarks are rather good. Nice job! You have inspired me to create my own bookmarks . . .

I especially like the "Just Listen" one.

Very cute and love the idea! I tried making one for my very first contest but considering my printer is just this side of suck, it didn't work out like I wanted it to.

Aww, they are so pretty. I'm just a sucker for bookmarks in general. I think I'm going to start a collection. I've tried making one before, but it didn't turn out that great.

You have to make a bookmark that says "Hate Spinnerbait." HAVE TO.

Hey, good job. I like them because they are original with you and not something from a printing house.
