Dream Bookmark - The Imagine and Iron On Transfer

 Hi ya everyone!  I love fabrics because they add so much dimension and texture to any project.  I kept my love of fabrics in mind when I created this bookmark.  Reading is a getaway of sorts for me and because of this I decided DREAM would be a perfect sentiment for a bookmark.  Isn't that the great thing about books.  You can sort of dream yourself into another world and time.  Getting lost in a good book is about as wonderful as getting lost in my craft room!  Now, combine those two loves and you get this simple yet beautiful bookmark!
Cricut Craftroom
Iron on Transfer Paper for InkJet printer
Imagine cartridge Imagine More Cards - for patterns
Imagine cartridge Blast Off - for font
Imagine cartridge Lori's Garden - for image
White Canvas Material
DCWV paper - Glam Girl 
Adding some simple stitching will ensure my canvas doesn't fray completely away - but I did fray the sides a bit for more texture.
Adding the ribbon was sort of an afterthought.  I wanted a delicate touch.  I simply added a strip of ribbon adhesive and bunched the gingham ribbon on the pink satin ribbon.  Finally, I stitched across them both using the same pink thread I used on the earlier.


  1. Melissa what an awesome project. I didn't realize that the Imagine could do that! Love it.

  2. What a wonderful project!!! I'm really going to have to try out the craftroom. I had no idea you could print using your Imagine like that!!!
