I Love Books

I have another trio of bookmarks to share with you today. They were created using a set of templates that you can find in the MFT Resources Section

I stitched the first bookmark with DMC floss 307, 931, 842,  3801, 3819, and B5200. As you can see, it can be a little hard to distinguish each of the books. In the next photo, I outlined each of the books in a light brown, DMC 840. I used only one thread, instead of the normal six. Outlining images in a slightly darker color really helps them to pop.

Can you see the difference that outlining the books makes? It really doesn't take that long to do, but it makes a huge difference.

I added a topper to each of the bookmarks, I picked three colors of card stock that coordinated with the DMC floss.

I then stamped a sentiment from the Our Story stamp set to the top of each bookmark. This really is the perfect sentiment for a bookmark.

The Cross-Stitched Bookmark Die-namics includes a little rectangle reinforcement. Adding this little accent to your bookmarks adds an extra splash of color. Before I die-cut these, I add the adhesive to the back of card stock. This makes adhering them to the bookmark a breeze.

Thank you so much for joining me again today. I hope you learned a tip or two. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the amazing creations the design team has to share with you today. 


  1. I'm passing this trick onto my gals that do cross stitching. Thanks

  2. Love your bookmarks, Julie! I'm inspired to do some cross stitching now ;)
