July pocket letter swap with red white and blue patriotic theme. I used the We R Memory Keepers paper line and accessories titled Red White and Blue. My favorite is the red white and blue M&M’s I found for the middle square. HaHa.
These are a few of the extra packages of goodies I made for her also. They include ribbon, die cuts, treat bag kit, and some star stick pins.
This first card I made using some of the images in the Beautiful flowers stamp set by #SSS. I colored them in with my Zig clean color real brush markers. I trimmed that piece down and mounted it on top of a piece of the patterned paper from ModaScrap that came in the kit. I layered the Happy Birthday sentiment also from Simon that I cut three times and then stacked and glued together, I applied some novo shimmer on top for some sparkle. I mounted those words onto two coordinating pieces of ribbon( I made a mistake in stamping and had to fix it somehow so that was my solution, I think it worked pretty well). I stamped wishing you with tuxedo black ink from Momento above the Happy Birthday words and then finished off the card with three colors of Nuvo crystal drops apple green, violet galaxy, and sweet lilac. I mounted the entire piece on top of a top folding a2 size card 4.25 by 5.5.
The second card I used the Sizzix embossing folder and a piece of the gold foil paper both from the kit. The dimension on the embossing is amazing. I stamped and embossed the sentiments onto strips of paper and them mounted them with foam tape. I tied a piece of black and white bakers twine around the bottom portion of the card and then topped it with an epoxy heart from a previous Simon kit. I added this panel onto a top folding white card base a2 sized 4.25 by 5.5. I think it will be a pretty wedding card.
I made this baby themed pocket letter for my June swap. I keep trying to come up with different themes I haven’t done before. Since I made my swap partner a baby mini album I decided to do the pocket letter in the same theme. I used We R Memory Keepers paper stack.
This is a pic of the mini album I made for her new grand child. I hade made a similar one for my Grand Baby so figured it would be just as easy to make two while I was at it.
I love the way they both turned out.
Love how this baby mini album turned out that I made for my grand daughter. It’s 6×9 with chi board front and back cover bound with binder rings. I made a little bead clip and charm to hang from the top with some ribbon tied on also. I also tied different types and colors of ribbon from the rings. I made a pinwheel wand to decorate the front of the album along with a shaker baby rattle and then spelled the word baby with thicker pink glitter letters and added a strip of patterned paper near the edge of the album.
I made pockets with the patterned paper to hold tags for journaling and a calendar to mark the date of her birth. I used white chipboard letters to spell girl on this page.
The back of the previous page has another pocket with photo spots and journaling tags inside and then a paper pieced elephant and monkeys to decorate the pocket. The opposite page has a file folder style page with a altered paper clip up top with an owl on it and a organza bag hanging from it to save any little memorabilia in. I also made a shaker pocket full of beads and sequins for this page.
The reverse of the previous page has a blank space for photos and a tiny envelope I made using my mini envelope punch board that I can put tiny things in to save like maybe a lock of hair of her first tooth she looses. The opposite page has another pocket trimmed with lace on the bottom and then a die cut stroller with bling and lace adhered to it. Inside the pocket are more photo mats and tags.
The reverse of this page has a another pocket with a sticker some sticker pieces from the paper collection decorating the pocket. I made some more photo mats and tags to go inside this pocket as well. The opposite page is a striped acetate page that I left blank to add photos to or use as decor.
The back page is chipboard covered with the patterned paper from the same line as the front cover piece. I left it blank to add more photos to.
I think this will be a great first year or two album for Rosalind to look back at in later years. It was lots of fun to make and pretty easy to do also.
Hope you enjoyed it. Please stay tuned for future pictures and videos of my projects and subscribe to my channel. Thanks for checking this out.
Another project using the Spellbinders small die of the month May 2018 set. I made this tag card using the Celebrate word from the die set.
I cut the tag from some patterned paper from Crate paper and some chipboard and layered them together for strength. I tied a piece of ribbon on top to hang the tag. I layered some die cuts, including the celebrate word cut on top of the pink circle. Then I applied some Nuvo drops in lemon yellow to finish off the card. I also add a gift card pocket from Lawn Fawn onto the back of the tag so I would have a place to hold a gift card. I can just insert this whole tag into an envelope and deliver it like that or I could tie it to a gift. By the way I did a process video on this but some how messed it up and didn’t get it uploaded properly. I’ll do better next time.

#NeverStopMaking Spellbinders small die of the month set. I made this rainbow card using the Hello die from the set and I think it turned out so pretty. It was very easy to make. I die cut the hello from each of the rainbow of colors of card stock and then staggered them onto a piece of white card stock. I then stamped a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Best Ever stamp set and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.
I trimmed out the sentiment and then adhered it to the top Hello strip. I finished it off with just a little bit of embellishments because I felt that there was already enough going on with all the color strips, so I adhered some clear sequins from Simon Says Stamp.
These dies could be used in so many ways the possibilities are endless. Hope you enjoyed, leave me a comment if you have any questions and please subscribe if you haven’t already done so.
