♥ confetti pocket tutorial ♥

Hi!  Today is my day to post over on the OA Blog and it happens to be Tuesday which means....a tutorial!  I have shared a tutorial, and hopefully answered some of the questions I've received, about how to create the confetti pockets in some of my recent projects.

Here are some recent projects with the confetti pockets

♥ just sharing ♥

some cards created with OA Woodland Park today.  i needed a couple of cards and wanted to play with some more of the gorgeous Woodland Park.

i have been playing with flat-mailable designs this week, specifically for sending the cards through the mail, while still having the "handmade pop"

may wonderful things card

  and here you can see how "flat and mailable" this card is


and here is another flat-mailable card

unforgettable moment in time card

and then i decided to "play" with the peacock stamp in the Woodland Park line.  i thought it would be fun to die-cut some "stamps" from the various patterned papers

 paper stamps card

 i chose to add buttons to this card because i was hand-delivering it but you could certainly leave as-is so it, too, would be flat/mailable.

i hope you have a beautiful, blessed day.

hugs & so much love!

for my project today, i chose to create a mini album using the new Here and Now pages

 woodland park "play" album

i cut the butterflies straight from the pp


 you're gonna love these brads, they're absolutely beautiful


i wanted to stitch the word "play" negative on the front of the cover, so i traced, lightly, with pencil onto the page, then stitched the tracing, erased the pencil and added some dimension to the word.


and here are some of the inside pages of my album
page 1

  i love, love the stickers in this line, they are happy and for everyday life.  love the bike and that flower scallop trim sticker.....swoooon


 page 2


 i LOVE these bunnies

page 3

 washi tape

 and tidbits

page 4

 cute turtles too?


page 5

 it's fun to stitch a clear pocket over the journal tags and fill them with fun confetti of all kinds.  i also cut one of the journal tags in half and adhered the pieces to both sides of my picture.


 page 6

 the journal cards make fun picture mats too for the album-sized pics

 i love this pre-printed banner here and now page, was so fun to embellish
