Bookmark Simon

Hi everyone, it’s Shari here with some Ranger product inspiration.

You know how I LOVE layers… I’ve created some fun bookmarks using a few Distress Paint techniques.  My inspiration comes from BACK TO SCHOOL as my boys head off for their last semester of Jr. college.  Also I want to remind you to bookmark the new Simon blog.  I’ve made it easy if you want to grab the QR code on you mobile device, all you need is a bar-code scanner app. and direct your camera at the code on the photo below.

The bookmarks I’ve created can be a starting point for backgrounds of cards and journal pages, once you get started, it’s hard to stop!

I covered the fronts with a piece of acetate to protect the ink from accidental spills and moisture.

I put together a video for you showing the process. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

  1. Great techniques for us to use. I was at book club yesterday and now I’m inspired to make bookmarks for everyone for our next meeting. Thanks for the great video!!!!

  2. My son thinks Simon is the cutest dog ever! (And Mannie the cutest cat ever since he makes an appearance every so often in stamps, too…) :)

  3. Really awesome bookmarks. Love all the visual texture, with both the paints, and the stains. I really enjoy your videos, Shari, and your style is just amazing. Thanks for sharing, always.
    Now, I am going to have to get those great paints, and some stains. Such inspiration, too lovely to pass up. LOL

  4. As always, I love your video and the cool bookmarks. Every once in a while, I make a bookmark for someone instead of a birthday card – always fun. I love the techniques you used and am going to give them a whirl!! Thank you!

  5. ADORABLE….I have to make these for my Great Niece and Nephew….I’m not just a Good Aunt; I’m a Great Aunt. Love them. thanks for sharing!

  6. Thank you for the video. The book marks are adorable. I know my grand daughter who loves to read would love these bookmarks.

  7. Love this idea. I did not know the paints worked like this. I will have to figure out which ones to get now.. Great project love bookmarks. (miss them with my kindle)

  8. Now I need more stains and some of those paints – I love how they layered together so well and never knew the paints would resist like that! Really cool effect. Thanks for sharing the video!
