ParTay SunDay

Hi folks!   It's Jean in sunny, dry and HOT Arizona today.

A reminder that the discount code Ladybug is valid until June 30, 2015.  (excludes Mailbox Muse Kits)

I decided I want everyone to be happy and what better way than to have a party....Take some time to enjoy my Pocket Altered Page with a PARTY theme.

The contents were fairly simple and down right festive!   Each pocket card could be used to create a birthday greeting or an invitation to a party.

I started by cutting 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch ATC cards with Robin's Nest Shocking Pink paper as my background, a little sparkle only makes things better, right?

I then applied pastel feathers with Aleens glue.  While that was drying I fancy cut the Party Hats collage #1052.   This collage has always been one of my favorites!  


I then applied the fancy cut images over the feathers with Aleen's glue.  I also added tulle and gems, glitter and trims to the feather cards. The tulle is removal for other projects.   I added a gold crown to the center card for pizazz!   I then allowed the cards to dry while I was choosing the pieces I would add to the pocket backs.

I like to add things that can be used by the recipient.   I have various cards and ephemera from our Treasure Packs.    I filled a kraft envelope with game pieces, included die cuts, trim, papers, embroidery thread and of course the letter P for PARTAY!

Hope you enjoyed joining my party today.   Remember if you joined the SWAP your mail should be going to your Partner now.  

P.S.  Make sure to look at the Mailbox Muse Summer Kit, mailing in July, order NOW.  (discounts do not apply)

  3. Jean- your cards are absolute fun!!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
