Valentine Pocket with Tag / Video Tutorial

Standard

Happy Thursday Peeps!  It’s officially February now so it’s okay that I’m a little crazy about Valentines.  Like I would have my entire house draped in hearts and flowers and treats everywhere. Sadly I live in the house of boys so they would not appreciate balloons and confetti everywhere right?

I can however create pockets and fill them with sweet little tags…..

Valentine Pocket and Tags Polly's Paper Studio 02 Isn’t this super retrolicious?????? This is the Forever My Always Collection from Pebbles.

Pockets w/ Tags Petaloo~Maja Design Spotlight

Standard

Hey there Petaloo Peeps! So very excited to share the projects I created for the Petaloo ~ Maja Design product spotlight.

 

I decided to create favors since every party is more funner when you get to take a treat home. These pockets have tags but there’s still plenty of room to tuck in a little gifty.

 

Party Favor Pockets Petaloo Maja Design Product Spotlight

These pockets are created with the gorgeous patterned papers from Maja Design.

Pink Pocket

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 01

I’m using the same basic layout for all of the pockets and layering them on burlap for a consistent look. The natural fiber adds a nice texture as well.

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 02

A tiny crocheted doily is a great shabby chic accent and creates a nice base to layer on the beautiful flowers.

Pink Pocket with Tags Party Favor Polly's Paper Studio 03

I’ve lined the pockets with a coordinating patterned paper so it will look just as nice without the tags and treats.

Tags are a great place to add a picture or some journaling on the back. Or maybe even affix a gift card?

Purple Pocket

Stitching around the pockets is a nice subtle detail and adds structural stability to the pocket so you can fill it up without worrying about it coming apart.

I’ve tucked in some pearly picks coordinating ribbon to enhance the flowers.

Vintage buttons are added to the top of the pockets.

Adding a matching bow and flower to the top of the tag helps to bring the balance to the top of the pocket.

Blue Pocket

Pocket Folio You’re a Hoot

Standard

Hey there Peeps! Well I’m here today to admit that I have a problem. I am a chronic list writer. Any little scrap of paper is fair game to scribble on. Is the list the problem? Nope. Losing the lists is the problem. When you write important information on something that looks like trash…..guess what’s gonna happen? Yep you got it…lost lists.  So I created a hardcover pocket folio to tuck in all those precious little scraps.

French Chalkboard Labels Pocket with Tags

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! We’re knee deep in the summer activities schedule here and loving every minute of the warm weather!!! But a busy schedule will not keep me from my studio and this week I’ve created a lovely little pocket filled with tags. It’s a thoughtful way to present a gift card or filled with pictures and journaling for a not so traditional scrapbooking project. I used the beautiful trims from the July Ribbon Club Assortment “Black and White” 

11392874_925024057549614_3902030953764272961_n

All the patterned papers I used were from my scrap and salvage box and the vintagy images are from my French Floral Chalkboard Labels Digital Collage Sheet.

Flora Pocket 1To top the tags I created bows from Black Checkerboard Satin, Black Sheer with 4 Thin Satin Stripes,  and Black Satin Swiss Dots.

Flora Pocket 8A pocket with the tags removed should look just as pretty so I finished the inside with coordinating polka dots.

Flora Pocket 2I used more of the Black Satin Swiss Dots and layered on some Barbara Crocheted Lace. The gorgeous flowers are from Petaloo..I just love them! I added an additional bow created with Chevron Striped Twill in Black.

Flora Pocket 3

The bows on the tags are finished with Wild Orchid Crafts Black Roses, and some sweet little charms and keys.

I really love my old school label maker and for this project the black tape was a perfect match. I layered the label with a glittery flowers and tag then anchored them with a metal clip.

Flora Pocket 5

The tags have more of the French Floral Chalkboard Labels on coordinating papers with bold graphic patterns.

Flora Pocket 6As you can see…a little accent with Stickles really helps the flowers pop and gives them a little sparkle.

Flora Pocket 7

I just love all the layers and textures on this pocket. It’s already gone to a good home and I hope they enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!
Okay that’s all for me. Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
