Pocket Letters!!!

Good Morning Everyone,

I wanted to share a new trend of crafting that I am just having a blast with.  This is such an awesome way to use up those scraps that you don't want to throw out, but don't know what to do with, plus a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

Do yourself  a favor and check it out  They have groups and events to match anyone's likes, and if you don't find one you like, you can create a group or event of your own, or just play outside the groups. 

There seems to be two ways peeps are doing these; collectors and/or swappers.  I'm not the collecting type, so swapping works best for me.  I'm able to find fun ways to use up my scraps and send off goodies to a new home, and in return I get the same.  I just PLAIN FUN!!

There's really no set rule on how to make these and a lot of girls put little goodies behind the pockets that they crafts, but I decided to make the little goodies I send part of the decorations.

Here are the first 3 I've made.  I asked my recipients a few questions so I could hopefully create their PL in ways they would like.  I couldn't post them before now, because I like to wait for the recipient to get them first, but here they are.

Side Step Card

Hey Everybody, I hope everyone had a great weekend, and enjoyed the holiday.  My husband and I have been catching up on home maintenance, but I'm enjoying the extra time with him, and our gorgeous Florida weather!

I started out with the intentions of making a CAS card, but somehow ended up making a side step.  I love The Paper Shelter, and that's where I found this adorable image called Oh My! which I colored with Copics and Promarkers.

Now, I don't know anything about a tiera, and I didn't have anything to make a mini-traditional one.  I did find a picture of one that had roses and beads, so I did my best to make one similar using wire, ribbon and 1/2 beads.  I made the tag with Silhouette, added a couple of clear beads and string pearls around the image, and made a little double bow to finish it off... I hope :)  The papers are from Hobby Lobby, and that's about it.  Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.

April's Free Stamp

Hi All,

Sorry I'm late with my bad.  Just a couple of things.  Please, please,..please don't share my stamps.  I'm not a great artist, and some of these stamps took me several days and a lot of hours.  It really hurts my heart when I see them on Pinterest.  If someone wants to know where you got the stamp, please send them here.  If they miss the time it's free, I'm a good person, I'll send them a copy. :)  Please, I don't want to stop sharing my stamps because of this. Thanks for listening to me.

This month I'm going to let you choose between 2 stamps.  Tu Tu Shy, or All Better. 

Okay, 4 share stinks and unless I figure something else out, please email me for your copy.  Oh, and don't forget to let me know when you've created something.  I'd love to see what you've made.

Tu Tu Shy

Funnel Card

Hey Everybody,

Hope everyone is having a great start to their weekend.  It's been a crazy few weeks for us.  We've had family down, and have just started our hay cutting season.  We've also got some new neighbors, which is the reason for this card.   

The inspiration came from two places, one from Tracy from My Creative Place, and Kittie from Kittie Kcraft.  You have got to check both these blogs out, if you don't know about them already.  These gals are so dog gone talented.

Now, I couldn't find a tutorial to follow, but hopefully I got close.  I wish now that I had added more to the front, but who knows maybe I'll have a last minute idea.

The image is Wryn New Nest from Tiddly Inks, and I colored this image with both Copics and Promarkers.  I used my cameo silhouette for the frame, fence, and congrats & welcome tag, and a little flower punch for the petals.  The stems were easy enough to do by hand, the ribbon is some stash, and that's about it.  Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day, and stopping by.

FREE Lattice Edge (Cutting File)

Morning, Morning, Morning Everyone

I created another image to use in the Silhouette Studio, and this time I converted it to a cutting file.  I wasn't aware that I needed to do that for others to be able to use it easily and quickly.  Here's a shot of what I made.  Just keep in mind that my blade is dull, and I haven't changed it yet.  I didn't want to use a new blade just for practicing.  Anyway here it is:

Because 4 Share is a total pain in the "you know what" (until I can figure something else out), you'll have to contact me for a copy of the cutting file.

FREE Png File for Silhouette Studio

Good Morning Everybody,

I just spent the last week with some of my relatives (from Virginia).  Always makes me home sick.   Anyway, I didn't want to make a big mess (working on a card), so I decided to see what I could do as far as creating my own cutting files to use with my Cameo Silhouette.  As you'll see, there are some improvements I need to make, but all in all it cut out pretty good.  I seen a similar design somewhere (can't remember where now), but it reminded me of a 1/2 a heart.  So, here's what I came up with. 

 photo Lattice Swirl Edge.jpg

Not that it matters, but this image is white (not cream), and the background is blue (not green).  I must've had my camera set on something  At any rate, I thought I did pretty good for my first time around.  I created the image in my Coral Paint Shop Pro program, and saved it as a .png file.  I then used the trace feature, did some compound pass "stuff" (real technical,, and sent it to the cutter.  I used plain card stock, and had it set to 4.

**If you would like a copy of this file, just shoot me an email, and I'll be glad to send it.**  Would sure put a smile on my face, if you became a follower, but I'm not going to push it.  :)

Happy Cutting!
