Preparing to create Pocket Altered Pages!

       Hi gang! Thanks for joining us here at Altered Pages! 

This month of June the team is going all out and Altered Pocket Pages with collages, paper, embellies, OH MY! and other treasures from Altered!

 Here are some sneak peeks of the beginnings of my pocket page for my friend

   All carefully chosen collages cut and embellies picked out~ready to assemble into nine ATCs with fun treasures included.
Stay tuned for the 19th when I share my completed pocket letter project with you!  ")
Thanks for joining us! ")


Lyneen here, to share a few cards in progress...
I am in the planning stages of my next page using papers from the Steampunk Spells  8x8 Pad.  8x8 Pads are PERFECT for Pocket Altered Pages!

In the planning stages I have a lot of products out that I think I may use and start playing with them.  Dew Drops, Gold Opulence and German Scrap Keyhole to name a few.  Above I have added Steampunk Washi Tape to three cards!

I have cut a chipboard gear in half that is too big for one pocket and the pieces will fit side by side in two pockets!
Bet you can't wait to see my finished
STEAMPUNK SPELLS Pocket Altered Page!
I will be back later this month with a finished page!!!
