Tim Holtz ATC Things With Wings Swap

  Another Tim Holtz ATC swap. I made this for Lynne in Texas.  Another one of my favourite Tim Holtz stamps. I call her butterfly girl. Great fun making this one!

Photo shows the little tag out of the pocket.

This is the other side of the little tag.

As I said in my other post, I'm getting into mail art. This is the front of Lynne's envelope.

And this is the back!

  I made this one for Jessica in Arizona. You can't really tell by the photo, but there is a large acrylic circle on top of the paper clock; for dimension. 

Photo shows the  tag out of the pocket.

This is the front of Jessica's envelope.

And this is the back.

  Having a fabulous time with these swaps; Pocket letters and ATC's! Hope you're getting crafty! The weekend is just around the corner!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tim Holtz Addicts March ATC Swap

  Love it! This card and ATC is from Heather in the US. We both joined the Tim Holtz Addicts ATC Swap Facebook page.
 I love her inking and the use of the stencil, not to mention the butterfly girl stamp, one I do not have but is on my wish list! Awesome Heather! Thank you!

  This is the envelope Heather sent the card and ATC in. For those of you in my local crafty circle, you know where these stamps are going! LOL! I am making a circus mini album. It's a work in progress, and these will fit in nicely!

 I got Lesley's name and this is the ATC I sent to her. She lives in Scotland. Btw, the theme was "Anything Goes".
 This is a photo with the little tag out of the pocket. On the other side of the tag, I wrote a little note.

 Having a great time swapping! The TH Addicts ATC swap for April is "Things With Wings". I will post the ATC I made and the one I get in return.

Thanks again for stopping by!

Pocket Letter from Sandra in The Netherlands

  I got Happy Mail today! A pocket letter from Sandra in the Netherlands! We hooked up on the Pocket Letters Facebook page. A very busy active site, I tell you! 
  She said the papers used are from Maja Design. Love this paper line! So vintage shabby chic!

  The goodies that were in the back pockets. It was easier to photograph them this way. She also included a lovely letter!
  This is how she wrapped it before sending it in a bubble wrapped envelope. 

 This is the one I sent Sandra. I used Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime paper kit.
  This is the back with the goodies I sent Sandra.

 Having a bit of a struggle trying to photograph some of these pockets. Most of the time I take them out of the pockets, but I usually decorate the outside of the pockets too. Getting some glare.

  Really enjoying these pocket letters! My next one is with a local crafty friend.

 Hope you are having a crafty week! Thanks for stopping by!

Pocket Letter and a Birdie Card

 This is my 4th Pocket Letter. Made this for a dear friend who is going through a rough patch right now. Can you tell she likes pink?! 
 They are fun and exhausting to make! But I am hooked! Won't be making anymore right now though. 

This is the back side with all the goodies! 

Update: My pink pocket letter was shown on Paper Crafter's Library: Trend Watch - Pocket Letter Thanks for the mention!

  I'm also getting into mail art, which is basically stamping all over the envelope! LOL! I have seen some though, that are really awesome works of art!

  This cute birdie card is for another crafty friend, who did me a favour. I sent her this card to thank her. The paper (I Love!), is from Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden.

The front of the envelope.

  The back. I picked up a couple of Canada stamps in the $1.50 bin at Michaels, not thinking what I would use them for. Now I know. They are perfect for envelopes!

  I think spring might be around the corner! The snow is melting, and it got up to plus 5 today! Woo Hoo!

Hope you're getting crafty this weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! 

A card I made for Mike's dad, Rod. My fav bunny stamp from the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous set, "Spring Sprung". The grass is also from this set. 

I added some Liquid Pearls to the grass. Stamped and cut out Mr. Rabbit; coloured with pencils and Gamsol, then popped him up with some foam dots.

Added some Liquid Appliqué to his tail to make it puffy, although you can't really tell by the photo.

The letters are from Tim Holtz too. They're called Alpha Tiles.

Entering this Springy Easter card in:
1. Crazy 4 Challenge: C4C279 Let's Think Spring!
2. Country View Challenges: It's Our April Challenge: Use Kraft Card

Wishes and good thoughts! Thanks for stopping by!

Unruly PaperArts ATC Swap

  I've been participating in some swaps on Facebook lately. This one was hosted by Danie May from Unruly PaperArts. She lives in Australia.
  We made 3 and received 3 back. We all mailed ours to Danie and she mailed everyone 3 back.
  The 3 above are the ATC's I received. I love them! They are all so different! Different techniques and creativity! Awesome!

  These are the 3 I made, + one for Danie, the host (the one on the right that says "thank you". I used Tim Holtz Wallpaper 12x12 paper pad collection and matching vellum pad collection.

These little things are very addictive!

  The long Easter weekend is upon us. Happy Easter and enjoy time with family and friends! Thanks for stopping by! Mutchly appreciated!
