Pen Pal Pocket Letter!!!

these adorable Pen Pal Pocket Letters!!!

sending cute little gifts to new friends.




I chose Studio75 12 x 12 Craft Love paper pack
for my base cards and then fussy cut some of the
 elements from the cut out sheet to fill some of the
 pockets with tags, flowers,frames and post cards.  
These can all be used by the recipient.

Scrap & Craft DT - Smile


Good morning my dears,  I have another card to share with 
you today for 


 I used the NEW paper pack LOFT from 
UHK Gallery available over at SCRAP & CRAFT 

These papers are delicious they come with two cut out sheets full of fabulous sentiments and saying such as the one below so
are great for either Scrap book layouts or Card making.

The pretty chipboard edges are also from the store and it's actually a rectangle normally used for sentiments, I just cut the edges off and used them to frame my sentiment adding some purple stickles to create little glitter pearls.  The fabulous faceted pearls are
also available in the store and are made by Scrapberry's.  



Thank you so much for popping in to visit.  
I hope you'll come back and see me soon.

Good morning my dears,  It's time for a new challenge over at

 I also embossed the middle section of my folder in white, 
cut it out and repositioned it along the middle section of the bag
just to give it a bit more dimension.

The butterfly's at the top are a Joy border die, leaves are Doohickey die
Flowers at the bottom of the gift bag are handmade using one of my Spellbinders
Rose dies.  Gems, sentiment are from my stash.

Good morning my dears,  It's time for another wonderful
challenge over at 

Magnolia-licious


Our theme for the next two weeks is

"Anchors Aweigh"

You will need to include an anchor somewhere 
on your creation and for me it has to be nautical.

This sweet Tilda is from the Sea Breeze collection 2013
and she has been coloured using copics and pencils 



I decorated a very plain box for myself which now
contains all my Nautical die cuts from various collections.

The dies I on the box are a mixture of Magnolia Doohickey
dies from the Die Kit Club #1 Collection , the banner and large anchors.  The smaller anchors are from a Marianne Design die.




Our sponsor as always is the lovely Diana who will be sending
our random winner a lovely Surprise!!!
