Pocket Letters 4 Planners

Hey, y'all!  Hope you're having a great weekend! I've tackled a few projects over the last couple of days and  filling orders from my Etsy Shop :)  Today I've listed four brand new Pocket Letters. What are Pocket Letters?  I'm not sure who coined the phrase or birthed the idea, but basically they are a baseball card sleeve (with 9 pockets) that are filled with all sorts of goodies for planners, cardmaking or other papercrafting projects! I LOVE curating them for folks and customers seem to really love them as well.  Take a look:

I find all of these really cute, vintage reproduction style ATC cards on Etsy and add them to the various pockets.  Then I tuck in the fun embellishments that can be used (primarily) to decorate pages of planners!  You can hole punch the ATC cards and add them to the rings of the binder or adhere them to a calendar page.  Sequins are fun for those who like to maker shaker pages.  And of course, paperclips, labels and stickers are a must fo…

Little Miss Patriot

Happy Sunday! It was a rainy afternoon and all of the chores were done, so I  sat down to create this cute 'lil patriotic ornament/tag/sign just in  time for Independence Day!  Would be perfect hanging on a lighted tree,  a cabinet knob or door :)

In my stash are a bunchhhh of these scalloped acrylic pages that were designed for mini albums. I cut a piece of chipboard to measure slightly smaller than the acrylic piece and then dressed (both sides) with patterned papers from Echo Park Paper. The edges were distressed with a walnut ink and then attached it to the back with  Sookwang adhesive tape (I placed the tape strategically so it would be hidden by the piece on front of the acrylic).
For the front, I used a die-cut chipboard piece covered in this cute patriotic plaid print. The little retro girl (I found by searching "free patriotic clip art) was printed onto heavy cardstock, trimmed out and added with foam tape, along with the blue glitter die cuts.

Welcome to My New Address!

Hello everyone!  I wanted to take a minute to welcome you to my new blog (not sure what happened to the other...I think that's one of the non-perks of  having a customized web address).   Anywho!  I was able to transfer all of the old posts to this one, so nothing will be missed :)
Now that Summer (as far as school terms go...) is here, I'm clearing out crafty stuff and listing things in my Etsy Shop that I've been holding onto for a little too long (I've always been a bit of a hoarder, even though my mother referred to it as a 'pack rat') I've spent the week organizing my things; hopefully it will be easier to sit and craft when I get the chance.
New Listings...New Projects

I've had this tri-fold frame in my stash for some time now.  I added some additional pages to the back (from some Maya Road chipboard houses) and turned it into a mini album!
I've also been curating some cute Ephemera Kits....I so love curating! They're mixed with flea market…
