A JOURNALING POCKET...using my june card kit from artful delight

hello all,
hope you all had a great weekend. 
we had beautiful weather and of course did some more yard work and also went for a ride in the country. 
awesome scenery!

today is my turn to post for artful delight.
and to make something other than a card i made this cute journaling pocket. in my mind it has various uses and i can assure you will find another purpose for it too.
so easy to make!

5" x 3"
first i want to say all the supplies are from the kit. 
the extras are my adhesive, sewing machine and thread.

i cut the super thick yellow cardstock base to a 7-1/4" x 3" and scored at 2-1/4" inches. the patterned papers were cut a 1/4" smaller.

i then adhered them with a bit of glue in the center so i can sew them without gluing my sewing needle. i did some zig zag stitching first (while the pocket was open) and then went and did a regular stitch around it to close the edges.
i used the fork method for the tiny ribbon using the red twine and added one of the second set of stick pins in the kit. i also added a journaling page in the pocket. did i already tell you i heart that heart against the polka red dots. well, i do :P

 i had to show off the floral paper in this kit too. i think is stunning and it even has some texture to it. awesome!

at the end i added that little handle on the top left just for fun and added the pretty "hi" brad . i like to leave the ends of my thread "fluttering" around. i think it gives the project a whimsical touch. 
and... this is my non card project for you today. :P

 pss!...hope you entered our monthly challenge.
 the prize for a lucky entry is a monthly kit of their choice, nice, huh? 

 this is it for today.

wish you all a great week!
