Simple Shapes Simple Bookmarks

It has been 2 weeks since the kids went back to school and we are slowly settling into the new schedule. I have been busy trying to get the house in order and while cleaning up the kids' study bench, I found these bookmarks that I had made but never got around to posting.

When the 2012 Simple Shapes were released a few weeks ago, I had mentioned that each design in the collection comes with a bonus layer that is intended for use with a pen. To be more specific, that layer of "Cut Lines" is not meant for cutting. Instead, it is supposed to be drawn with a pen attached to the electronic cutter via a pen adapter. What I didn't mention was that if you do not use a pen with your cutter, you can print that layer out to see how it looks. 

For these bookmarks, I used print-and-cut to print out the design and have the Cameo cut the shapes out.

 For a different look, I left out the bonus layer for some of the bookmarks.

With or without the bonus layer, I think these bookmarks turned out really cute. What do you think? Have you used the 2012 Simple Shapes yet? What have you made?


  1. These are adorable, as always. Thanks for the mini-tutorial as well.

  2. These did turn out cute! AND I will be making some kitty cat ones ASAP. Really need to make a hedgie one since I went crazy for that shape and then never used it! LOL. I have big plans tho! Thanks for another great project idea!

  3. So cute! I have the shapes downloaded but haven't used them yet.
