In My Pocket Challenge

Hi there ... I am back this morning with my City Crafter Challenge post ... where I am hosting this week and we have a very talented Guest Designer ... Monica Skadsem from Norway... If you are into Shabby Chic .. you really need to visit her blog and see the fabulous creations she's made for this week's challenge ... it's AWESOME!! 
 The challenge I have set is to create a card, tag or project which includes some sort of pocket ... I was inspired by these lovely creations from Recycled Rita ... you can find her post of these HERE


Aren't they just the prettiest toilet rolls ever? I've been saving my toilet rolls too just so I can make some of these ... probably with my group ...
I decided to go for a card as I so wanted to use my new things from PTI ... and this is what I came up with 


This is a double pocket card so I could get two pretty tags in ... I made the pockets by just folding a piece of double sided TH paper that was cut to about 8/12" X 11" ... then I stitched it to my card ...



This is how it looks without the tags in 



... and these are my pretty stamped tags ... 


For the buttons .. I first adhered my paper to CS and then cut them ... just to make them thicker ... and the little pin that you see on my card is from Stella ...


I hope you will join us ... I love seeing your creations  ... please take a minute to visit the rest of the DT and see their Gorgeous creations too ...


See you later!

Your card is stunning, with or without the tags.

The colour is one of my favourites. Your work is beautiful!!!!!!

I have been making things out of toilet rolls for a while now, before I started to blog. So much you can do with them.

I think pocket cards are running a close race with tags as being my favorite and these are gorgeous

Wow. I am going to try to make that same pocket. or pockets I guess. When challenge blogs call their designer reveals "inspiration" this is exactly what they should mean - I am so completely inspired by this, and I know I am going to come back to it again and again. Thanks Ros.

Ginny said...

Wow! First, your card is beautiful! I love all the PTI products that you used. The paper you used looks like linen fabric to me. "Sew" perfect for your card theme. And the photo you used for the challenge...I would have never guessed toilet paper rolls! Very, very cute idea. I just may have to start saving them myself. Thanks for sharing.
