Yes. it's weekend and that means more time for crafting :)
One of my sisters came here on Thursday and we went to the city for some shopping, lunch and had a wonderful time. Thursday evening I cooked her favorite dinner and we spent the evening talking, laughing and crafting . My sister creates breathtaking quilts and all kinds of other quilt project.
It's fun to be crafting together; especially with one of my sisters! She went home yesterday and after she left I finished my project for this weeks' challenge at the City Crafters Challenge Blog. This week you have to create a card, project or tag with a pocket.
Here is a gorgeous picture with pockets:
The last few weeks I made a lot of pins and I have been looking for a sort of wrapping to send them to others. This challenge is a perfect opportunity to create something for that purpose.
Tags are great way to add some pins and put them in a pocket. And a great way to use some scraps; I have a lot of paper scraps. Like the most of us :)
I used cream, kraft and pink cardstock from my stash.
I stitched a piece of linen (IKEA) on a piece of cream cardstock and added some lace and trim.
I cut out a label and stamped a sentiment ( Waltzingmouse Rescue Remedies additions) on it.
On top a tag with a sweet sentiment( Waltzingmouse Rescue Remedies additions) some twine and an adhesive pearl. The edges of my card are distressed with Antique Linen distress ink:
The tags were made from scraps of papers from Tilda and Marianne Design (Eline's huis)
I put the pins on a piece of felt, glued it on my tag and covered it with a piece of paper.
I addded some trim and a button. On the other tag I added a crocheted flower and a sweet sentiment ( Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases).
A close up of the pins and the flower:
And this is my card; ready to send it to someone:
It's my first attempt to add some fabric on a card and I think it turned out quite well.
I am pleased with the result and I hope you like it too.
And now I have to go to the supermarket and after that I have an appointment with my washing machine :)
