Farmyard Birthday!

I saw Dawn's tutorial for the Double Z card on Pinterest!  I can think of many uses for this card.  Since I love Karen Burniston's farmyard animals- I wanted to incorporate them into this card.  Here is Dawn's tutorial -

I put the sentiment on the side but I think I would put it on the back of the card next time.  I love the fact that the card closes for easy mailing too!  The card is closed in the photo below-
Today is the first day of Fall!  I will miss Summer but I am ready for Fall and all the fun things we can do without fear of dying of the heat!  I just wish Winter wasn't so close behind it.  Enjoy your day!

Pocket Letters

Happy September!  I still can't believe it's already September!  Today is noticeably cooler!  Of course, I love fall weather.  Bring it on!

I have been busy making Pocket Letters!  I saw them on Pinterest and fell in love.  It is a good place to use any scraps of paper and embellishments!  I found the pockets in the section of Target that has baseball cards.   The hanger is from Tim Holtz.

My niece had baby Rosalie recently and I wanted to send them something.  In the middle section of the Letter are 2 pockets- on either side of the bling pocket.   The picture below shows one opened.    I did use magnets for the closure.  You can click on any of the pictures to  make them easier to see.

I couldn't make one for new baby, Rosalie, and not make one for her big sister, Amelia!  Amelia loves the movie Frozen.  So I thought I would make that the central idea for her Pocket Letter.

I did use Julie Nuttings paper doll stamp!  I love these stamps and don't use them enough!  This worked perfectly since it kinda reminds me of Amelia.  I only made one pocket that opens on this Pocket Letter.

The back was something I printed off the computer.  I can see making more of these Pocket Letters.  I have been bunches of them on Pinterest.  If you want more ideas- you should go over there and see the many different ones for all occasions that people have made.  I am headed back into my Craft Room- more cards to make for more birthdays that are coming.  I will share those soon!
