The church lady called last week.  Said it was time to get things done for teacher appreciation (religious education).  And she was thinking bookmarks.  160 of them.  Yikes.  My challenge was that I only had 4 days to get them done.  Yikes again.  So I enlisted the help of my husband, and we got ’em done.  He did all the diecutting – the bases and the crosses, and then cut all the jute twine.  I cut the patterned paper, stamped, inked and assembled.  I’m pretty sure we just scored some major Heaven points 😉

    Well, I am certain you will need more than your fingers and toes to add up your Heaven points for sure. Just awesome. No doubt you’ll wish you could cash in those points for some new cutting plates on your die cutting machine! They must look like they’re about to give up the Ghost! Beautiful colors. The wee staples are a lovely touchalso. Well done, my friend.

    Holy cow! (So to speak) 160 bookmarks in 4 days? I think that qualifies you for sainthood, LOL! These are gorgeous! I love the color palette. Are the crosses cut from Verve dies? I really like the shapes. Your church’s teachers are going to treasure these, Michelle!
