Fill your pockets !

Now I don't know about you, but I love looking at the Hero Arts Blog. I just adore their stamps and their blog and they show the most amazing work on there. I was looking at it the other day in total wonder and they were having a "pocket week" and were showing all these amazing pockets that had been made. I thought to myself "I could do that" so I did !!

My lovely friend Tara and I were nattering about swapping images the other day so I knew just the person I could make a pocket for and here it is :

I used a piece of "Sea Salt" Bazzill card and made a 6x6 card and then cut about 2" off the top on one side and then bonded all the edges together to make a pocket. I added the border at the top of the card to add a bit of height in the end as the images were quite large and it also adds some "prettiness" to it too.

The papers are BasicGrey Euphoria papers (I adore these, they are so pretty) and I used my new Martha Stewart punch which I bought from Dies to Die For. I can highly recommend this online store and Tracy who owns it is just fantastic and really puts herself out for you - she is truly amazing and I cannot recommend her enough.

I added some pearls from my stash to the papers.

The pink and purple ribbons are from my stash too.

The flowers are Prima Hydrangeas with spacers and brads from my stash.

To make the tag I used the same Bazzill and cut the pattered paper with my nesties.

The gorgeous Tilda is coloured with my ProMarkers and I used :

Mustard and sandstone (hair), cornflower and pastel pink (dress), ice grey 4 & 5 (socks), satin and warm grey 2 (tag), sandstone (bow on tag), ivory and blush (skin) and I edged the whole image with a Copic Ciao cool grey number 1 (c-1).

The ribbons are the same as on the pocket.

NOW while I was making this for Tara, she introduced me/us to her daughter's blog and my goodness, is this little lady talented ! You must go over and have a look and leave her a comment. Well, talent like this cannot go unrecognised so I made her one too and filled it with some of images she can use for herself instead of raiding her Mum's stash !

This time I used some dark pink Bazzill (sorry, the colour was not on the back) and I used some DCWV patterned paper from the Spring Glitter Stack. The yellow card is from the new Papermania card stack.

The dew drops are from simonsaysstamp and come in a little jar with a mix of blue, hot pink and clear.

The flowers and gems are from my stash.

The ribbon is from Poppicrafts.

For the tag I used the same papers and cut an oval from my nesties.

The image is a download from All That Scraps and I coloured this little cutie with my ProMarkers. I used cinnamon and blender (hair), coral (dress, shoes and bows), ivory and blush (skin), pastel yellow (dress).

Again I used the same ribbon and dew drops.

The butterfly charm was purchased from e-bay.

I know that both Tara and her daughter have received these safely so it is safe to post !
