We are SO glad you are here, because Kelly came up with a SUPER-fun theme this month, and we hope you all have as much fun hopping as we did creating! The hop runs in a circle, so make like a kangaroo and just keep going, and going, and going...you get the picture. :)
My particular project inspiration came in the spur of the moment as I was wrapping up a little birthday gift. I was bored with tying on gift tags...so I made a pocket for it instead!
The pocket is cut from the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Cartridge and the tag is cut from the newest Cricut Cartridge from CTMH...Artistry.
I used a sentiment from the For Family My Acrylix and Fern and Whisper Thick Twine to thread the tag. I separated the thick twine in order to use a strand to stitch on the pocket. I will take this opportunity to remind you that stitching on paper is a tricky business...it does rip if you lose yourself in the moment while creating...ask me how I know. ;)
|I used a textured stamp and tone on tone ink/CS to create the pocket texture.|
This adorable pineapple washi makes a cute little pocket trim.
|Sequins are from the Calypso and Magical assortments.|
That's all I have for you today, so you are off to Kelly's Blog to see what kind of pocket she's using today! Enjoy!
Here is a list of all the ladies on our hop today--I am THRILLED to have added a few new names this month!
Amie (that's ME!)
