Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs bookmarks

Hello Crafty Friends!

Do you lose your bookmarks?  Sometimes my bookmarks are readily found for a year and then *poof!*- they vanish into thin air.  Lost bookmarks are replaced with sales receipts or folded post-it notes.  Finally a simple and obvious solution came to mind: "You have a lot of scrap paper so make your own bookmarks."  (Funny how it took this long to realize I can make my own.)  Yesterday I grabbed some scrap Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs papers, Quietfire Design's Kitties Quotes marks, Hearts and Paw Stencil and made some happy bookmarks.

The bookmarks are 2" x 6".  This bookmark has a stamped sentiment that made me smile the first time I read it.  
The back has inked paws
After my hubby saw the bookmarks I made for myself, he requested a "manly bookmark"
The back had a thin layer of paste used with the same paw stencil
I usually have two books on the go so another kitty book mark was made
The heart stencil was a perfect match
Below are all of the backs.
When all of the bookmarks were completed, a thin layer of Mod Podge was applied.

There are more stamps to the Quietifire Design stamp set:
Kitties Quote Marks, set of 7 stamps
The stencil has both sprays on it:
Hearts and Paw Prints Sprays - Stencil
I hope you enjoyed the bookmarks!  Maybe you will pull your scraps out to make some, too.

Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
