Ps. 23 in a magnetic fold over bookmark

Hello friends! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!  We have another busy one scheduled, but I wanted to pop in quick and share a magnetic bookmark I made using this month's fabby sets at Our Daily Bread designs.

I used Bookmarks: Trees, Bookmark Verses, Bookmark Prayers, Mini Tags 3, and  Bird Borders and Corners.  I also used Spellbinders Decorative Frames and Spellbinders  Labels 21.  


I loved the fact that we have the vertical arrangement of Psalm 23 for bookmarks, but I wanted to do something a little different to focus on the words "He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul."  So I used that part to create an horizontal panel over top of the vertical.  I also wanted this bookmark to be magnetic, folding over the top to hug the page, so I cut my card stock long enough to make a nice magnetic grip on the back, and stamped the frame and sentiment from Mini Tags 3 for the back side.

The images are stamped with Crushed Olive and the verse is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  I used my pastel chalks to sponge a scene and then spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist to set.  The grassy meadow at the bottom is from the Birds Borders and Corners set, and I also stamped  the Trees Bookmark an extra time so I could cut out the eagle and adhere to the top.  Another simple project and a lovely little gift.

A little tip:  When I first made this, I cut my magnets and inserted between layers of card stock to hide them, but the card stock is so thick (I used Gina K Green Apple and Papertrey Vintage Cream) that my magnets did not hold.  The only solution was to adhere the magnets directly to the backs of both parts, and even though they do show, many of your store bought ones have visible magnets on the back too, so I don't think that's a problem.  Now it grips the page nicely.

I am entering this in the following challenges: Stempelsonnen Challenge -  stamp as main focus - Week 1, Bookmark, Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Things with wings, Sweet Stampin -  Things with Wings (eagle), Clearly Inspired - Things with Wings, Crafty Catz  – Anything Goes, Inspire Me Fridays – Always Anything Goes, Simply Create Too -Anything goes, Paper Crafting Journey -  Anything Goes, Ruby's Rainbow - Anything but a card

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I just love knowing you were here!  I pray that each one of you is blessed with a wonderful weekend and joy in your heart!
