Forever Anniversary/Wedding Pocket Card


Hello friends and welcome on this wonderful weekend!
I have an anniversary/wedding pocket card up today in the shabby chic style I'm loving to create right now.


This one is loaded with laces and trims and appliqu├ęs not to mention tea stained papers. The cute bird die-cut and the one that says Moments are part of the Kaisercraft Collectables Anthology pack.


I've sprinkled I Am Roses white blooms and pearl stamens here and there along with pretty half pearls. On this heart lace trim I've attached a silver garment pin holding some dangle beads.


My handmade tiny envelope holds an equally tiny silver glitter heart.
Have a fabulous weekend to all... and thanks for stopping by!

Wallhouse Birthday Wishes Pocket Card


Hello there friends!
Today I have a scrap pocket card to show you. Every now and then I try to thin down this pile of scrap paper pieces I accumulate on my desk by making a card with them. Of course they won't work for the base. So for that I used a sheet from my ever dwindling hoard of 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk. One of my all time favorite collections by DeeDee Catron.


My layers include Tim Holtz Idea-ology Textured Surfaces... some sections of each cork, burlap and corrugate... and ephemera. I used a flair button, a tea-stained tag, a Prima chipboard tag, a small tea-stained stamped tag, a stamped fussy-cut leaf, and a torn piece of fabric, as well as some other assorted scraps. This all looked like it needed some metal, so I added Prima screwheads and a small Hobby Lobby timepiece.


To the TH Stampers Anonymous Nature Walk stamped leaf I attached a TH Idea-ology Star Fastener. To finish off my insert tag, I tied on a scrap of hand-dyed wool in a gorgeous rich burgundy color.


My focal point image was a coffee sleeve from our favorite coffee shop in Sugarcreek. I cut this section off and glued it to that scrap tag adorned with a TH Idea-ology Mini Paper Clip. For distressing I sponged on Vintage Photo ink.
Funny, this pile hasn't gotten any smaller!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Life Itself Is The Most Wonderful Fairy Tale Of All Pocket Card


Hello and welcome!
My Graphic 45 Princess pocket card for today has a different look from the others so far. I went with the gold toned patterned papers in the collection for the base, mats, and tag.


The focal point cut-apart features a Han Christian Anderson quote "Life itself is the Most Wonderful Fairy Tale". I backed it with some corrugate. I added Swarovski crystals to the crown, and beside it a tiny My Minds Eye chipboard banner topped with an ivory burlap string bow and a lace flower with a rhinestone. Some bottom layers include lots of laces, an ecru crocheted doily section with a garment pin and crystals, and tea-stained paper doilies.


The flowers are from I Am Roses. My handmade tea-stained doily envelope is lined with tea-stained copy paper. It's trimmed with vintage lace and a MME chipboard bee button tied with burlap string. It's resting on a bed of cheesecloth.


Inside I tucked a small Princess image from the collection. It would be a great place to add a secret note.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
