How can it be Wednesday already?? My craft room style looks like I have been burgled, where I have been rummaging through numerous boxes of bits, there is also the chaos left over from my last few days of 'panic crafting' as I got ready for the Onstage event. I got loads of different boxes out looking for things to go inside my 'Pocket Letter'.
Have any of you ever made a Pocket Letter? they are fun and I think that originally they were a 'Penpal' kind of thing, you had to include a note upon which you described your self and what crafts you were into.
You fill them with little craft embellishments, I put some Charms in, some Ephemera, mostly Tim Holtz tickets, you can include bits of stationary too, pretty paperclips, adhesive Gems and Pearls, samples of Washi tape, tags, I also put some narrow lace trim in. I think that Danielle is going to do a YouTube video on mine and I will on hers.
So I have to pack all of those boxes away again and straighten everything up, otherwise there will be no room for Sue to craft if she comes over this week.
Today's beautiful card is the card that Margaret made for Brenda for her birthday last week.
Margaret has used the Floral Frames stamp set from Stampin'Up! to create that beautiful floral frame image, which Margaret has coloured beautifully with her Watercolour Pencils and Blender Pen (I think). The sentiment is from the fabulous Painted Glass stamp set, the font is amazing, it goes with those Vellum panels that I used on a few different cards in August, I think the font works as well for masculine cards as it does for pretty girly cards.
Margaret has punched her sentiment with the Pretty Label Punch and popped some foam pads on the back, raising it up slightly so that it stands out.
Margaret then matted and layered her card with Marina Mist card, which is the same colour as she used on her stamped Image.
An absolutely stunning card, I think this is one of your best Margaret, I love it and I know Brenda did too. I think that we should share this on our Team page on Facebook too.
These are the stamp sets that Margaret used to create her lovely card.
Well I am going to be mostly making ATC's and tidying my craft room today, what are you all up to??
Whatever it is I hope that you have a good day,
Sending love and hugs to all,
