Vintage Pocket Letter

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place
Winter is very cold here in New Zealand and im envious of my friends all over the world who are enjoying summer!
The upside to this is getting into the crafty space and creating pretties to share with you......this weeks Design Team Project for Tsunami Rose Designs is another pocket letter using the beautiful "Ephemeral Love Affair"

To begin I had printed out this collection for my last project which as I have said before its so easy to do...
 then cut to my pocket sizes and began by inking the edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Di stress ink!

I have cut out some selection pieces and distressed the edges using my scissors then adding some ink as well for a rough worn look!

I have been playing with Resin and embossing so ive added some of these to my pocket letter for interest along with my little vintage inspired crochet pieces!
I also gathered some little scraps that I had tea dyed and added them as well and a final touch of some trim, flatback pearls,an inchie and a few sentiments my project is completed......
I hope you have enjoyed the process with me and thank you for stopping by.....

Ephemeral Love Affair Pocket Letter

Hi everyone
welcome back to my "Happy Place"
and a Design Team project for the month of July
I have chosen to use the  "Ephemeral Love Affair" collection from Tsunami Rose Designs!
The first thing to do with these gorjuss collections is print them onto your chosen paper or card......which is easy peasy!
This collection is just  beautiful!

After printing out my selection of pages I set to cutting to fit my pocket letter then using Tim Holtz Di stress ink I added some interest to the edges and also on some little pieces of chipboard scraps to make some matching embellishments.

I had been playing with embossing powder and resin so I thought this would be a lovely addition on my pocket letter to my friend!
I also cut out a sentiment from another collection, tore and inked the edges.

Then using laces, metal, embossed chipboard, flatback pearls, resin, and my little chipboard pieces .....decorated each pocket!

Finishing off with some matching seam binding for a dangle
and filled each pocket with goodies!
