Wow, I cannot believe Christmas is just in two months! Where did 2011 go?

I am super excited to launch my first 12 Weeks of Christmas series this year. Every week you will show different artworks related to Christmas. I am much more into Christmas than Halloween for sure. It just feels different to me. I will show you how to make cards, tags, gift items and much more for the next 12 weeks- Hopefully you will get some fun, easy and simple ideas from my series to make your Holiday season preparation go easy!

**VIDEO** Simple Bookmark w/ Doilies

Happy Saturday!

What are you working on this weekend as your scrapbooking/stampin project? I made this cute bookmark to hand out to my customers and friends 🙂 I love reading and this bookmark is my new companion!

You can get the giant clip at War-mart, I chose a flat one so it won’t leave a mark on a book page. But, you can pretty much get any type of paperclip you want, as long as it is jumbo sized.

Hope you enjoy this week’s tutorial!

Let me know if you have any questions!
