Pocket Letter #13 - The Earth & the Air

Hooray! It's the Pocket Letter time! :)

If you are wondering what Pocket Letters is it is a 9 pocket plastic page that you fill with DIY decorated cards to create a nice composition. Then you can swap Pocket Letters with your crafty friends and build up your own collection of them!

This one is titled "The Earth and the Air" so I have chosen to use a brown paper and vellum combination to represent those two elements.

I have used a bunch of Gummiapan wildflower and grass rubber stamps (see the supply list below) to heat emboss the images on vellum. Fine ink splattering is going to create more interest and enhance the transparency effect.

Aquarium Card

Hello and thanks for stopping by!

The project I am showcasing today is a shaker card. The idea and performance is really simple, it's the choice of materials that makes it interesting - I used some real sea shells to fill in the shaker and natural cork sheet to create a frame. The goldfish is cut out of shiny mirror cardstock and the whole thing is accentuated by the dimensional clear droplets.

This card is also a bit smaller than the regular one and measures 3 1/4'' x 4 1/5''.

Please scroll down for some close up photos as well as the step by step VIDEO tutorial!

Love Grows

Hello and thanks for joining me today!

The project I have created is a floral greeting card.  It is made with white + cream cardstock with the tiny addition of color green. 

The sentiment  is a word die placed over the matching shaker window and it it completed with some alphabet die cuts stuck right onto the card front panel. The whole thing is framed with the beautiful new double stitch die by Poppystamps.

Watch the video below to see how this card was made!

Masculine Valentine

Happy St. Valentine's Day everyone!

I have challenged myself to make a masculine Valentine - that is to say a Valentine without any flowers, lace or even hearts. And this is what I came up with - an easy to make card suitable for nearly all occasions (even a baby!). After all, you don't have to say "love" or draw hearts to make someone understand that you love him :)

MY BULLET JOURNAL / WEEKLY PLANNER 2018 - February Weekly Spreads

Hi there! I am catching up with publishing my weekly planner layouts. Today I am showcasing all four weekly spreads for the month of February. 

As always, I have randomly attached the washi tape and then searched through my stash to make the rest of the layout match the theme.

My journal video tend to be a bit longer ones so make yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy the tutorial!

Hi, hope you are having a great weekend!

I am mostly using up the supplies that I already have. The only thing I have purchased especially for this project is the notebook itself.

Below are the close up pictures and the full video tutorial:

Step Chest of Drawers

Hi crafty friends! The project I am presenting today is something different from a card - a paper centerpiece.

The first time I saw a Baby Block die by Spellbinders I thought of the Japanese style chest of drawers. I have also decided to decorate it with potted plants just like people do with real cabinets of this type.

So here is my paper version of this furniture - watch the video to see how it was made!
