Pocket Letter Madness

Have you seen these?? Have you been bitten by the bug??  I have to admit to being just a little bit addicted to these....ok to be totally honest with you all I am a LOT addicted to them, some would say OBSESSED even.  These are just sweeping the scrapbooking world (and cyber world) by storm.


These are just so perfect for all those leftovers we have....leftover bits of paper, lace and ribbon,  The odd embellishments and diecuts...plus you get to share a cuppa too!!  So today for my Mad About Scrappin Monday Project share I have four pocket pages to share with you all. Just want to send a special thanks out to Leanne for letting me do this....

To fill some of my pockets I have created some cardstock spools and wrapped lace or ribbons around them.  I have also ran some acetate through my Sizzix, using the Tim Holtz sewing room die and cut some smaller spools to wrap washi tape around.  I double up my papers in my pockets so that they are "decorated" front and back. I really like cutting all my "back" pages from one piece of paper.

I have also created my pages using just one piece of paper like this....

but also using a whole collection like these...

To me both styles look great and it really is up to you and what you want to do :) My last pocket page was created using a mix of papers from different pads that co-ordinated.



 Thanks so much for joining me today indulging me with my current obsession, I hope you have enjoyed this week's project. Maybe I have enticed your to join Michelle and I over on the dark side? These pockets are just so much fun and the best part of it all is you get to make a friend and create at the same time!!   Don't forget to check out the links below for all your Pocket Letter Supplies - ooops meant SCRAPBOOKING - scrapbooking supplies!!!

Mini Album

Hi all, It 's Wednesday down here for me, which means it is that time of the week where I get to share with you all my latest creative designer project for Faith Pocock Craft Studio Ltd.  To day I have a mini album that I have created using the gorgeous Cigar Box Secrets from Prima Marketing.

This mini really took me time at all to make.  I have used one sheet of black A4 sized cardstock for each of the pages and my Zutter Bind It All to bound them together.










Each of the pages follow the same format, with a large area for a photo, a pocket with tags for journalling and photo's along with a top loading pocket that has a double sided photo mat that you can tuck some larger photos into....







I have used the A4 paper pad, 4x6 journalling tags, 3x4 journalling spots, flowers, wooden icons and the 3D stickers to embellish this album.

Well readers that's all I have for you today, thanks for stopping by and taking a look, please come and like Faith's Store on Facebook and check out all the latest goodies she has for sale by clicking the links below.

Time to Celebrate Gift Giving Set

Hello readers and welcome to my Mad About Scrappin Monday project share.  Today I have altered a paperbag and a paper mache box into two gorgeous gift giving ideas....or gift presentation.  

 I have used the remainder of the Graphic 45 paper pad - Time to Celebrate and even managed to use up those little leftover strips from creating the Photo Folio Album.  Well readers even after 3 cups of coffee to try to kick start the old grey matter I am still at a loss as to what to say.....so here are some pics to help me out....
 Sooooo first up is the little paper bag.  For my Aussie and NZ readers, this paperbag is just one of those that can be found in the scrapbooking section at Kmart. 
 I have used a scalloped pair of scissors to create the flap and tucked it in behind the little diecut oval tab.  I have used a word cutout from the paper pad and some mini paper roses to decorate it.  
  I have also added a tag and a charm to the side.
 I even covered the back.
 
 Next is my little box.  This is really quite small.  Only 3"x3" or 7cmx7cm.  Again I have used a lot of the leftover strips from the Photo Folio to cover this box. 


 I have decorated the lid with more paper roses from previous creative team kits, a word cutout which I have matted on to a scrap of brown cardstock and I have fussy cut one of the butterflies and added some glossy accents to it



I hope you have enjoyed this week's project.  As always guys....please check out the links below to see what other happenings have been going on over at Mad About Scrappin.

Creative Inspiration Layout

Hello readers and welcome to my Mad About Scrappin Monday project share.  Today I have a layout that I have created using the papers .... from My Minds Eye Jubilee - "Adventure" Be Daring Paper.  These papers are from a recent kit I received from Leanne.  I just love the wooden floorboard background and it went perfectly with this pic of my son on his motorbike.


I have added some splatters to the background using some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in Tibetan Poppy Teal and the black splatters are just some watery black acrylic paint that splattered on with a paintbrush.  



I have used large teal-ish coloured enamal dots, wooden "wow" icon,green bakers twine, buttons and a little "Enjoy Life" badge that were included in this kit. Well readers there isn't much more to tell so I will let the pictures do some of the talking.
 I have added a Kaisercraft rub-on to the one of the journalling spots and to the paper strip.

Vintage themed Necklaces

Hey all....Well it is wednesday - Hump day - down here in my part of the world and that means I get to share with you all my latest project for Faith Pococks Craft Studio Ltd.  This week I thought I would try my hand at creating some vintage themed necklaces using alot of these luscious metals that I received in my recent kit.


Now I don't claim to be any kind of a jeweller and this is really my first time at making anything like this, but when I received these gorgeous cabachons in this months kit I was really inspired to create some vintage-y slash grungey looking necklaces.  I have created two using the silver and antique bronze supplies that were in my box of goodies.  So readers here are some process pics I managed to take on this new creative journey







and here are the glamour pics...




and the Antique Bronze version





Last but by no means least here is a list of the supplies I used to create these gorgeous necklaces..
Mixed Media Girl Cabechon
Silver Chain
Solid Cameo Setting
