Hi everyone. Marianne here with you today. 

I will show you what I did with the small pieces I have left from
the Picnic in the garden kit.  I made a Pocket Letter.


It´s a new way to send letters to your friends.

Basically, you fill all the pockets of a 9 pocket trading card protector and
send the whole page to someone who wants to swap with you.

This can be a one-time exchange or you can keep exchanging Pocket Letters indefinitely.
You fill the  pockets with anything you like (stickers, tea bags, a note, washi tape samples, pictures, etc.) A short note or letter is included and tucked into one of the pockets.
Then the Pocket Letter is folded up and sent in a standard 10 size envelope.
It's the perfect way to send and collect letters from other Pocket Letter Pals around the world.


I took some embellishments from the kit and painted them with 13 arts acrylic paint orchid pink.
Then I took some 3D foams and put them on the outside with hello in the middle.


Here are some close up pictures. 


In this pocket I put a private letter to my friend. 


Here is the backside where you can put your things right in the pocket
or do as I did and make a small envelope. 


Here I have put in some frames that I made from molds. 

Thats all for me today.
Hugs from Sweden

Thank You Canvas

Isn't it wonderful when someone does something special for you?  We just had a wonderful visit with our friends to make apple cider at their small rural farm.  So I thought I would make a fun gift to thank them for their hospitality.  This canvas is 5 inches x 7 inches.  I used the Fairy Garden Kit: Summer in the Garden, for this canvas.  All you will need to add is:  a vintage canning jar lid, Versafine black ink, pearl and think pink acrylic paint, Nuvo embellishment mousse in seafoam green, and then I had some white mesh-like stuff that was packaging from something, sorry not sure what!


I used a vintage Ball canning jar lid for the focal on this canvas.  I added all of the embellishments before using tacky liquid glue to adhere it to the canvas.

Even after making several cards and this canvas, I have a generous amount of pattern papers left over.  I am thinking of making a mini album or some more cards.  Look on Facebook later in the month for some bonus posts!

Hi everyone!

This kit is perfect for you if you like to make cards and mini projects.  This month it is feminine and girly with lots of pinks and greens and it is filled with paper from Lemoncraft and Scrapberry's, a couple of inks, and lots of embellishments! 


Meanwhile, Laurie has been busy with the first Garden Kit: Sunkissed.  Look at this stunning preview!  I love all the bright colors in this kit!  This one also includes lots of paper from Lemoncraft and Magiczna Kartka and tons of embellishments. There are also a few bonus kits available if you want more ink, flowers, embellishments, and paper to enhance your layouts or make more!

And Vivian has another amazing creation coming from the Toolshed Kit: Summer Concert.  If you are like me and you find yourself way outnumbered by testosterone in your home, this kit is for you!  It is perfect for capturing all the great memories of our boys, fathers, and hubbies without all the flowers.  But if you still want a few matching flowers you can always find them in the Embellishment Bonus Kit.
