C4C - Books


This is my first time playing in the Crazy 4 Challenges. This week's theme is books...we can create anything related to books - bookmarks, book images, inspiration from a book we've read, etc. How ironic that I just received this All Booked Up stamp set from PTI this very week! I kept it simple by stamping everything in Chocolate Chip ink. The sentiment reads: 'To read a book for the FIRST time is to make an acquaintance with a new friend; to read it for a second time IS TO MEET AN OLD ONE.' I chomped a couple of the corners and added some hand-dyed seam binding to twill tape to finish off my bookmark.
STAMPS: All Booked Up (PTI)
PAPER: Green Boutique (PTI)
INK: Chocolate Chip
ACCESSORIES: Corner Chomper, Slot punch, MS twill tape, Seam binding
