Hummingbird Bookmark

It's already December 1st can you believe it?! Where did the year go?! Well I know I spent about 5 months of it in bed sick as a dog. But for those of you who lived life all year, can YOU believe it's already December?! I sure can't. Christmas is only 24 days away! BUT a great thing about December 1st is that SU demos can pre-order Sale-a-Bration and Occasions mini products! YEP that's right Sale-a-Bration is right around the corner and the new mini catalog will start on January 4! There are so many cute new products too, I can't wait to get my stuff!!! Just another wonderful perk about being a SU demonstrator!

I have a really cute project to show you today. I really love it!! I LOVE IT!! I can't say it enough. And it's one of the simplest things I've ever made. I was asked by a friend at church to do a stamp party for her daughter, kind of like an end of the year party. So the girls will make a Simply Adorned charm, the Design a House and a bookmark. So here's the book mark....

Well it's actually in the book-shocking place for it right? :) By the way if you're still Christmas shopping here's a book to get that book lover on your shopping list. My Mom wrote this book, along with a bunch of others, but this one is Mary My Love. It's biblical fiction about Mary and Joseph, it's perfect reading for this time of year. For more information and to purchase them you can see her website. You can also see her other books there too. All make great gifts :) Ok now that my commercial is over back to the book mark.
It's made from the 2 tags die and it's just adorable!!

There's magnets on both ends. To make it, fold a piece of cardstock in half and place it on the 2 tags die but place the folded edge below the cutting edge of the top of the tag. That way you get the shape of the tag but you still have one long tag instead of two tags. Cute huh?!
There's pretty much no embellishments on this thing, since it's going into a book. The DSP is the Blushing Bride DSP from the hostess pack and the images are stamped in Blushing Bride and Regal Rose using the Elements of Style set. I love that humming bird, it's so pretty!
Everything else is pretty straight forward. Such a simple, fast yet stunning project!! I just love it. And they would make great stocking stuffers or teacher/coworker gifts. So pretty.
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!
