Spring Pocket Letter

Hello and welcome! I am so excited you are here for my Whatever Wednesday post where share my latest crafting shenanigans with you. 

Today I am sharing my first  Pocket Letter creation. If you haven't heard of Pocket Letters...oh...you are missing out! It is a fancy pen pal letter. Basically a pen pal letter taken up a notch for paper crafters. You can choose themes and you even fill them with crafting goodies for your pen pal.


For my pocket letter, my swap sistah and I choose to make a "Spring" theme. That way we had lots of flexibility. I choose some cheery papers and went to work. I added a scripture and a book quote in relation to the theme.  The left pocket letter is the front of my pocket letter with all the decorated cards. I used the Cricut machine, stickers, stamps and punches for the elements. The pocket letter on the right is the back view. That's where I added all the great goodies!
I made some card candy embellishments using the scraps from my pocket letter, added stamped images, gems, stickers, tea and a great butterfly embellishment I found at the $ store.

Here is a close up of the card candy embellishments I made.

In the upper right hand corner you will see my pen pal letter envelope. I wrote my pen pal a brief letter telling her a little about myself. 

To find out more about Pocket Letters you can find them on Pinterest, Youtube and the Pocket Letter Pals website

If you have made and swapped pocket letters before please tell me about it and post a picture of your favorite pocket letter!

Card Making Monday - Stencils

Hello and welcome to all things beautiful! I am so glad you've stopped by for a visit. I hope you are inspired and learn a trick or two. For today's card I pulled out some stencils and stamps. All the products I used on this card will be listed below.


I masked off a part of the card by using my oval dies and using the negative space to cover my card base. I then taped a stencil over the open oval and used my distress inks to create the rose design. I then stamped the vines on the sides and the sentiment in the center

Using My Tools Thursday - Belly Band

Hey there and welcome to Using My Tools Thursday post! With today's project I grabbed an old punch and some quilt dies. I thought making a gategold card would work best for this project. 


I choose to keep the edge of the die piece white and use my small patterned paper scraps for the fill-in. Here is a picture of the card with the belly band on. 



I hope you enjoyed this post and find some inspiration to go make something beautiful...

SOA beautiful world collection 2

Here is my second card for this collection. Catherine is offering a chance to win the newest SOA collection so I am posting these cards to her site.
For this card I heat embossed a stamped image from the gina K designs stamp set in the collection and then resist inked the background. The card is much more impressive in person. The camera had a hard time focusing on the white vellum

Black and White Friend Card

Hi There! I'm CASE'ing another card over at Stamp Nation. For this card I decided to keep the colors simple and add a pop of color for the center of the sentiment panel.

I stenciled the background, used lots of sentiments to create the panel and added a "girly" touch with the ribbon and bow.

Here's the card I cased made by: Jwayman77 over at Stamp Nation


If' you haven't tried CASEing cards give it a try. It's so fun to see what you can do by be inspired by someone else's design.
