Fairy Babies

Hi everyone! It's me Tonya and I am here to share my Pocket Letter which is my very first one I created. I used a variety of printables, Graphic 45 and Glitz cardstock to create this fun page.


I love the saying from the Pocket Quotes 2365. I dolled them up with bits of cardstock and butterfly punches.


I also used the following printables: Tinted BabiesTea Party Flowers and Fairy Wings. There was a lot of fussy cutting but in the end I think everything turned out adorable.


I also inked edges of the cards, printed the fly, cherish and inspire sentiments from the computer and added sequins and flat back pearls to finish off the cards.


After looking at my page I decided it still needed something else so I added a banner. I punched tiny holes on either side of the Pocket Letter sleeve and threaded the twine in the holes and tied off.



Since this is for the Pocket Letter Pals and Altered Pages Swap I have contacted my swap partner, packaged it up nice and pretty and got it in the mail quickly. 


Also I  did added some goodies for my partner to enjoy in her next project. :-)
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.




Supplies Used:
Other Supplies: 
Ribbon, Lace, Sequins, Chalk Ink, Flatback Pearls, Twine

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.


Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.



With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 



Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.





Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
