Pocket Letters

Hey there folks! Tonight I'm going to share a fun new project I've fallen in love with. Pocketletters. What's that you ask? They're little ATC's that you put in trading card sleeves and swap snailmail style all over the world! Check out all about them here at Pocketletter Pals. Janette Lane is the inventor of them and I adore these little pockets of fun.

I've been in a few swaps now and here's some pics of the one's I've done -

Each pocket has a theme, basically penpals on steroids. I had a blast making each one of these and it's an awesome way to use scraps!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Friends! Here on this Monday to share a layout I did for More Than Words and the music challenge on If you're not familiar with More Than Words click to go to their site either here or from my sidebar. Two challenges a month, the main and a mini, and really awesome prizes!

This months challenge is a nice one -

I love clocks! And I love them on layouts :) It's a great way to show the marking or passing of time.  Let me just give a small back story to the pics of Santino who was a wee babe here. He's crying because his siblings had put a big piece of tape over his mouth! Poor kid, they did that sort of stuff to him all the time and when they saw this layout they all started laughing and saying "that's when we taped his mouth closed!" What a lovely bunch ;)

Here are some pics -

Another nice stash raid here. Pretty Prima Epiphany collection, Prima flowers, some micro beads, stampwork and misting and some clocks. I love Lindy's mists, their colors are so gorgeous and look great on the pages.

My song for the challenge was True Colors by Cindy Lauper and I printed the first lines onto the pic.

Thanks for looking!

Loved Friend

Hi guys! Hump day, almost done with the week! Woot, one more down not too many left till school's out for summer :)

Today I'm sharing a layout I did of our sweet Bruno who crossed the rainbow bridge on 4/25 and I joined the NSD challenge on for our pets. Did anyone get their craft on for NSD? I'm happy with how it came. I will also enter it in Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #140 Monochromatic with Ribbon or Trim. Give a click to check it out, or click my sidebar :)

I used papers from Fabscraps which I've had for a while now. They're from a Swirlydoo kit. Petaloo flowers also from the kit. A doily from my stash, twine and ribbon, stash fussy cut butterflies and stickles dotted here and there. I also splatted some Lindy's mists, a pretty chippie frame from Creative Embellishments that I gesso'd, inked and stickled. The title is cut from my silhouette cameo. Let me just say, my cricut has served me well and enormously through the years and I still use it, but my version, the expression, can not cut with the fine detail that this baby does! Can't speak to cricut's newest model, but boy I love my cameo!

This was a decent stash raid here, not even with any prompting! I hope you like it, have a great week and thanks for stopping by,
