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.
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.
