It’s Coming Soon….

Book-with-bookmarkI can say that about so many things right now!!!

First I will start with Teacher Appreciation Week… It is from May 7th through the 11th. I like to look at ideas and I have to admit that I am not the best about getting things to school, but this year will be different. Right! I made these really cute bookmarks for the teachers with the Twitterpated fabric from the Occasions catalog.

I have made these fabric flowers in the past, but I have always used them on cards. It is nice to make the flowers for something that will last longer than a card. See another sample of a twisted fabric/ribbon flower here. 

To make the bookmark: You tie a knot to start the flower and with fabric glue, you will continue to twist, wrap and glue your fabric into a flower pattern. I used a 1" X 27". For the base of the bookmark I started with a 4" X 8" piece of fabric. I also Bookmark-clorhused a 3 3/4" X 7 3/4" piece of fusible interfacing in the center. I did add one of the antique brads to the center of one of the flowers. I found my directions at Little Birdie Secrets.

Ok, on to my next coming soon. We are getting ready Trip-tagfor the trip of a lifetime for my children. We are leaving on a dream vacation to Walt Disney World in a week. I earned my first ever incentive trip from Stampin' Up! and the time is coming to take this great trip. I am probably more excited than the kids. For the last few days, every time I say let's get going my 3 year old asks to Disney world? I have realized that I say, "let's get going" a lot. I can not say a bigger Thank You to my customers and downline that made this vacation a reality for me and my family.

On to my last coming soon... The end of the 2011-2012 Stampin' Up! catalog. The list of stamps retiring has been released and the retiring accessories will be released next week on the 25th of April. A few of my favorite stamp sets are on that list and you will not want to miss out on those stamp sets. The last day to order from the 2011- 2012 catalog is May 31st. The end of April will be the end of the Occasions mini-catalog offerings.

Whew! That was a lot! I have the supplies that I used for the bookmarks below.
