It's time to cook up a Quirky Reminder

This week I decided to make some cooking bookmarks, I often want to keep my place for several recipes I want to make.

This is The Cook from Robyn's Fetish,
I coloured her with Promarkers.
 I cut bookmarks from brown bazzill type cardstock, using a Sizzix Bigz Tim Holtz tag die, and I cut some freebie designer paper (designed by Mary Kilvert in 2012) to fit the tag.
I added cupcake ribbon and Everything Stops for Tea ribbon both exclusive to Crafty Ribbons along the bottom, and gingham ribbon (also from Crafty Ribbons) through the hole in the top. The backs are plain at present.

The first bookmark/tag features The Cook, one of the images generously supplied to the team by Robyn's Fetish. She is coloured with Promarkers and die cut with a Spellbinders die.

The second bookmark features Cookn Mouse.

This image is Cookn Mouse from
Robyn's Fetish, with cupcake and
gingham ribbon
from Crafty Ribbons.

This is My Little Cook from Robyn's
Fetish, and Macaroon and Gingham
ribbons from Crafty Ribbons.

This bookmark features Cake from Robyn's
Fetish, gingham, and Everything Stops for
Tea ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

Apologies for any doubling up of descriptions - I just discovered the "Add a Caption" feature on pictures and wanted to try it out!
I have added a few buttons to the front of the book......

..... and finished the pages, blue and teal have red gingham paper strips top and bottom, and there are a few hearts from the scraps in places......
......pocket pages got a little love too......

 .....and orange pages got a strip of cupcake paper down the side, both sides. Papers are by Mary Kilvert (c) 2012, looking pretty now......
 ......but I ran out of cupcake paper, so used this afternoon tea strip on the last orange page, and a larger Cake image on two of the pocket pages.
My new cooking bookmarks fit neatly into one of the pockets in the recipe scrapbook.

I have entered the following challenges:
