This Shabby Chic Pocket Letter was put together for a Giveaway Challenge. It’s been awhile since I’ve made full size pocket letters. Sure you’ve seen me send out a couple of mini pocket letters here and there; but nothing that required that much on my part.
I knew I wanted to make a Shabby Chic Pocket Letter, but I was a bit intimidated by the entire process. So I went through my stickers and paper bins and this is what I came up with!
To create this pocket letter I used the following items:
This Paper Purse Gift Bag is my last design team project for KS4U.net and it’s also a GIVEAWAY! One lucky subscriber will get this large paper purse with a flip book mini album and a set of 4 greeting cards. All you have to do to enter is comment down below. One comment will suffice. And please make sure you tell me what you go by on YouTube so that I know who I’m chatting with!
This Paper Purse Gift Bag was created using Graphic 45 Artisan Style. I used a Martha Stewart paper punch to punch around the edges of the black card stock. I decorated the upper part with black trim from KS4U. The metals and the flowers are also from KS4U.
The flip book mini album base is by Teresa Collins. I used papers from Graphic 45 Artisan Style as well. I also made a charm and attached it to the mini album. The owl that you see on the charm comes from KS4U. I adorned the spine of this beautiful flip book mini with a wide trim from the shop. I also decorated the cover with blue and black flowers, a black butterfly and blue swirly bling.
I left the greeting cards plain and simple because, in my opinion, the paper speaks for itself. These blank greeting cards were also made using the Artisan Style paper collection.
I hope the lucky winner enjoys this elegant keep-sake just as much as I enjoyed creating it! Thank you so very much for leaving such great comments! I will announce the winner Saturday! Good Luck!

Accordion Mini Album using Embellishments from Spellbinders!
Accordion Mini Album – Funny thing happened when I posted my Spellbinders Spellblogger DT Package for May (in my YouTube channel). Many of you said “I didn’t know Spellbinders sold trims!!!” After the third comment like this, I knew I had made the right choice for my May package! As a fellow crafter I enjoy diving into many of the popular paper crafting fads of the moment. But every now and again, I like to take a walk off the beaten path, just to see what I come across with. And my oh my! Do I have a treat for you!
Spellbinders has this amazing luxury trims, bling, and metals line called A Gilded Life. Their trims are very beautiful, easy to work with, and very affordable. Not only did I use trims from A Gilded Life in my Gift Card Holder Tote Bags, but I decided to put them to good use in this beautiful and very glamorous Accordion Mini Album as well.
So this blog post concludes my Spellbinders Spellblogger projects for the month of May. I hope that you have enjoyed your visit with me; and I want to thank you for taking the time out to comment on my blog posts and watching my videos. Good Luck in the giveaway. I will have a winner announcement up on my YouTube on Saturday, May 27th. For the rules and how to enter my Handmade Prize Package Giveaway, please visit my first blog post of this series by clicking here.
And friends, don’t just take my word for it, you MUST visit the Spellbinders A Gilded Life page to see all of the affordable, luxurious crafty items they have in store for you!
Elegant Handmade Cards using Spellbinders Shapeabilities Victorian Medallion Two S4-443. Today I’m sharing these beautiful elegant handmade cards I created as part of my Spellblogger projects for the month of May. These hand-made cards were super easy to make! They are blank on the inside and non-specified. Meaning, they’re perfect for any occasion! You can use these to hand out a graduation sentiment, as thank you cards, birthday cards and even wedding cards! I purposely left these gorgeous glam cards blank because I want you to be able to use them when the occasion rises.
These 5×5 cards are dimensional, yet not bulky. As you will see in my video, I like to use full size foam (cut down to size) so that you can have a sturdy backing. Quite too often I’ve made layered cards with foam squares that in time tend to bend at the parts where there’s no backing. This new full foam backing technique takes care of this issue.
In my Elegant Card Tutorial video you also get to see exactly how I go about in creating these glam cards with very little effort. Whether you’re a novice or have been scrapping for ever, the use of Spellbinders Dies and quality card stock and scrapbook papers will have you paper crafting like a Pro!
As I’ve mentioned in my past videos, I just can’t possibly keep everything that I make. In my efforts to give back to the crafting community, I am holding giveaways of the handmade crafts I design for Spellbinders Spellblogger. For the month of May, I will be giving away this beautiful set of three 5×5 handmade cards, along with two more projects that will be revealed in my YouTube Channel in the next two days. My giveaway is open internationally. You MUST be a subscriber to my YouTube channel; and friends… please check your YouTube settings. Make sure your subscriptions are set to public. If I can’t see that you’re a subscriber of mine, you are not eligible to win. Also, you must be 18 years old or older to win.
To enter to win this giveaway (and I say “this” because I have another one brewing… hint. HINT…. ), all you have to do is leave me a comment on this and the two additional blog posts that are being released in the next two days. You’ll know you’re in the right blog post because I will tell you. One comment per blog post will suffice. Each comment will get you one entry, for the maximum of three entries. Although I know a number of you, it’s always a good idea to let me know who you are on YouTube so that I’ll know who (from YouTube) is coming to visit my blog. The winner will be chosen using a random number generator. This giveaway is open until Midnight Friday and I will draw the name of the winner on Saturday the 27th. Sound easy enough?
By the way, there is a RAK program I’m implementing on my blog. If interested, please let me know by completing the following form. This form is also for my Newsletter. I haven’t deployed any newsletters as of yet. I’m continuing to test email programs. When I find one that serves my purpose, I will send out a Monthly Newsletter to those who signed up. Don’t worry. I won’t bombard you with Spam. I’ll just keep you on the know on what’s to come, and some of the things you may have missed. I will make the official announcement of my Newsletter and RAK participation when I have all my ducks in a row.
I thank you for visiting me on my blog and Good Luck!
