Mark Your Places...

It's day 3 of sharing projects for this month's Lifestyle Crafts release! I am definitely a bibliophile, as are many, many of my friends, so I thought I would create a fun set of book markers (to keep and to give to friends and family!)
Plus, as an Affiliate, I get to share an exclusive 20% discount code for the Lifestyle Crafts store! Read on for details...

I used the new Corner It Kit dies on this project, which you can see below. It's a cool kit because, as I mentioned in yesterday's post, these kits also include a digital file that can be used with most electronic die-cutting machines. These darling corner dies made it easy to create these fun book markers.

I used the floral corner dies to die-cut these little paper-clip book markers. Since they fold together, it was easy to insert them onto some tiny library clips, which I then clipped to paper-clips! A bit of twine and some bling and I had a set of cute clips.

I never write in books, but I do like to take notes on things I have questions about or to write down interesting quotes. To make this "note marker," I simply printed out some lines and a title and trimmed them down to size.

These little butterfly and heart corners are the perfect thing to secure my book notes to whatever page I am reading! 

Cardstock: Lovely Lilac, Delightful Daffodil, Tempting Turquoise, Rose Red, Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!); Solar White (Neenah)
Accents: Brads (American Crafts); Gemstones (Imaginisce)
Fibers: Baker's Twine (The Twinery)
Other: Paper Clips (generic); Mini Library Clips (Stampin' Up!)

I hope you liked my little set of book markers! Tune in tomorrow for more LC fun. And, if you go shopping in the Lifestyle Crafts online store, be sure to enter PROMO CODE: BEAN for 20% off!
