Pocket Letter Pals



Hello there Pals!
Soooo, just in case you haven't heard… There's a new trend ravaging our little crafting community!!! But you must have heard!  It all started on Instagram, and quickly spread like wild fire!  It's a new and creative way of corresponding with a pen-pal!

Pocket Letters were created by Janette Lane; her idea was both simple and yet so amazing!  Basically, you use a traditional baseball card collecter's sleeve, and fill each pocket with a little something.  First and far most, include a letter for your "pal," and then some tags, some goodies, and maybe even a little bit of tea!  Each pocket is 2.5 x 3.5, which happens to be the exact size of an ATC (Artist Trading Card.)

So of course, the chance to make 9 ATCs to swap with a new friend, and share goodies with them, is driving paper crafters like me nuts!!! It's so much fun and soooo addictive!  Here is the last one I made, I finished it just tonight!  It features the prettiest paper designed my sweet friend Daisy Collins aka Tsunami Rose.  It's her latest journal kit and can be found in her shop here.  It is appropriately name Rose Azure, and it is as lovely as it's name.
Here is my Pocket Letter:




So there it is… my Pocket Letter, all ready to be shipped off to a new Pal!
If you haven't already you should definitely give it a try.  And seriously when
you have amazing paper to work with, the Pocket Letters practically make themselves!

And this paper collection is ah-mazing! I love everything about it... the grungy
shabby "chicness" it embodies.  The rich full bodied colors, the vintage designs...
every element Daisy used fits perfectly and harmoniously.

You can find Rose Azure and many other collections at
"Like" them on Facebook where you can join
and find daily inspirations.
You can also follow on Pinterest.
Both of her shops (Etsy & Zibbet) offer instant downloads.


Thank you guys for stopping by!
Happy Scrapping & Paper Crafting!!

Charming Fragments by Tsunami Rose

Hello My Bloggin' Buddies,
Daisy's newest digital collection "Charming Fragments" is comprised of a delightful assortment of timeless images with an elegant classical touch.  For this project I created an extra large tag so that I could maximize the opportunity to show case as many beautiful details as possible!  The tag measures 9 x 4.5 inches.  And I thought the clever use of Tim Holtz's "fragments" would be perfect for this project.  Not only for the wordplay value, but also because it gave me the chance to highlight a multitude of the "charming" images this collection offers!
Here it is:

Let's Catch Up!

It's been so long! Nine months to be exact! I could have created a new human being in that time... 
but I didn't.  I'm far too old for that! 
But I have been creating... tags, lots and lots of tags!  
Here's a small selection...













They all contain lovely little butterflies created my good friend Renea Harrison.
I spent a few months on her Design Team, and totally enjoyed her easygoing
team management style. But most of all I enjoyed working with such beautiful 
and unique embellishments.  Each butterfly is handcrafted and the detail is amazing!

Well, I'll try to make it back more often!
Happy November and Big Scrappy Hugs!

Latinas Arts & Crafts: Reto #2

Holas Amigas!
Today I'm going to give my bilingual skills a work out!!!  I've been part of a lovely group on facebook for some time now called Latinas en America.  They recently gave their blog a bit of an overhaul, and are now calling it Latinas Arts & Crafts.  Unfortunately, I missed out on their first challenge last month, but I'm just in time to jump into their 2nd.  The theme for this challenge is Valentine's Day, and the requirements are twofold.  First, we must incorporate 3 hearts, and second, we must select 4 out of the 8 hues provided.

Here is my submission for the challenge:

Thank you friends for stopping by! As always I am grateful and delighted that you did!

Gracias amigas por visitar mi blog, se lo agradesco muchisimo!!!

Using Embossing Paste!

Hello my bloggin' buddies!
Soooo, today I have something new and exciting to share... and it's call EMBOSSING PASTE by Dreamweaver Stencils!  Annnd, I love it!!!!  It's like moulding paste, only better! Especially the one I played with today, it's pearlescent, and it is just fa-bu-lous! Not even kidding! I made a little vid... hope you get a chance to watch it!
In the video I also show how I use tulle to texturize the base of the tag.  Here's a few pics of the finished project:
So if you get a chance, you should pick some up! It was a lot of fun to play with it! I picked mine up at Scrapdoodles, my local scrapbook store! Here's link to help you find a place were you can pick it up if you're not local - Dreamweaver Stencils

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Scrapping & Big Hugs!

Christmas Gift by Tsunami Rose...

Hello my friends...
 Happy Holidays!
I have a lovely collection of digital paper to share with you.  Tsunami Rose's Christmas journal kit is just beautiful.  I created a Christmas Cheer mini album which features the "Christmas Gift" collection.

The mini album has an acetate front and back cover.  It's held together my Kathy Orta's hidden hinge binding system, and attached to a chipboard spine.

It also features some beautiful metals, flatback pearls, 
and buttons provided by Miriam's Crafting Supplies.

Here it is...






As I mentioned in an earlier post, this collection is a real treat for those who love antique images, and love the nostalgic feel of Christmas past.  The "Christmas Gift" collection features traditional vintage ephemera with pretty hues of blue and green.  I hope you can check it out, if you haven't already done so!  
Thanks for stopping by, please leave a 
comment so I know that you've been!
Big Hugs my Friends!
Yvonne
