DIY Watercolored Bookmarks

Hello crafty friends! Today, I want to share with you how to make these Spring themed bookmarks.

These bookmarks are a great gift for book lovers, or donating to your local library, or even just for you to use personally. You can make a batch of them in a short time! Over Imagine Crafts Blog, I share step by step tutorial.

I find that Canson Watercolor Paper 140lb is the best to make bookmarks. They are not only thick and sturdy, but also you can use any craft  techniques with this paper – either simply stamping, or watercoloring, or even mixed media.

Cut a piece of watercolor paper into 6 inch x 1 ¾ inch size. One piece of this 9 x 12 watercolor paper, you can get 10 bookmarks.

You can leave it as a rectangle or you can round the corner with the corner rounder punch. Next, use a ¼ inch hole punch to punch a hole at the center top of the bookmark for ribbon or teasel.

Here are the supplies I used:

Imagine Crafts:


  • Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamp – Dearest Friend Stamp Set
  • Canson Watercolor Paper 140lb
  • Corner Rounder Punch
  • Hole Punch (¼ inch)
  • Fiskar paper trimmer
  • Acrylic stamping blocks
  • Flat paint brush or fan brush
  • Craft Heat Gun
  • Ribbon or twice or tassel

DIY Love Notes Mini Book

Valentine’s Day is coming up soon… I start thinking of making some Valentine’s Day projects for my loved ones! And today, I would like to share this Mini Love Notes Book idea with you all.

I made this Love Notes Mini Book using the new digital stamp set from Graciellie Design – Heart Notes.

This project I made with digital stamp set and I used my Silhouette Cameo Machine to do the cutting. I worked with Silhouette Design Studio software to do for the Print and Cut with this digital stamps.

I open the digital stamp files on my image software, resized them to the same sizes and arrange the sentiment on each page. After that, I printed them on white cardstock and then I cut it with electronic cutting Machine. I added some inks of each page with blending brush.

The last page I made the coupons using the Graciellie Design – Love Love Love mega digital stamp set and I cut the ticket shape with my Silhouette Cameo machine. I added it to the both pages with permanent adhesive and it will folded when the book is closed.

I stacked all the pages together with thin double sided tape, and then I punched the holes on the side of the heart with We R Memory Keeper hole punch. After that, I added those ribbons. And then I added some sequins on each page for extra bling.

I hope this project give you an idea for your Valentine’s Day project. Thanks for stopping by!

DIY Christmas Ornaments With Stamp and Dies

Hello everyone… Christmas is coming! Ornaments can be a great gifts. Also, my family always get new ornaments every year.

Today, I made these Christmas ornaments using Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps:

  • Adorn Him Stamp Set
  • Adorn Him Die Set
  • Peace & Joy Word Dies
  • Starry Night Stencil

On both wood slice backgrounds, I painted them with Black chalk paint. I set them aside to dry.

For the first ornament, I used the stencil, Metallic Gelatos, and white paint to create the starry night background.

I used Altenew Artist Markers to color the baby Jesus image after I stamped it with Memento Ink. And then I cut it with the matching die.

After the background dried, I added the Baby Jesus image on it with permanent craft glue. Make sure your glue is strong for wood or any surfaces.

For the other ornament, I cut the word Joy from the Peace & Joy Word Dies with permanent White Vinyl and then I added it on the wood slice. And then, I simply added the White Coconut Gelatos pigment on it with finger to give the chalkboard look on it.

All dies will be “Buy 2 Get 1 Free” from December 16th until December 23rd at Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps store!!!

I hope you like these two ornaments today and give it a try to make your own.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. Have a blessed season!

Rainbow Pop It Treat Box

Hello everyone… Today, I want to share a fun idea for a “Pop It” party favor box. Kids will like it!

I had so much fun making projects using this Heart Pop It digital stamp from Graciellie Design. Valentine’s Day is coming up and you will love this digital stamp set. You will have much fun creating projects for kids and adults with this set.

I printed the heart image on a smooth watercolor with laser jet printer. And I colored it with watercolor paints. I dried the paint with craft heat gun and then I cut it with scissors.

For the tag stick, I printed the sentiment on a a white cardstock. I used a tag die to cut it and I cut another piece white cardstock for the backing. I sandwiched the bamboo stick in the middle of the label tags with permanent adhesive glue. I held it together until the glue dried well.

For the box, I used the Card Caddy and Gift Bag Die Set from Divinity Designs. I cut out a heavyweight white cardstock (110 lbs) using the box base die and I trimmed it as tall as the heart pop it image (it is about 5 in. tall). I put them together with double sided tape. I added the heart pop it image on the box with permanent adhesive glue.

I hope this simple favor box give you an idea to make for fun kid’s party. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have wonderful day.
