JAI 92 - Just Add a Tag or a Bookmark

JAI 92 - Double Pocket Card with Tags

The challenge this week at Just Add Ink is to ... add a tag or a bookmark to your paper craft project. I made a basic Pocket Card from the beautiful Mocha Morning Speciality DSP to hold the two matching tags.

Some extra detail was added to the pockets by using the Eyelet Border Punch for some edge trimming as well as some machine stitching to hold the pockets together.

The layering of punches for the sentiment was an idea I picked up from a very talented demo called Julie Davison. You can find her beautiful card HERE. The finishing touch was the addition of a gorgeous rose bead that I discovered in my craft stash while I was searching for the Linen Thread.

The tags were stamped with Soft Suede using the flourish from Elements of Style.
I hope you get a chance to play along with our 92nd challenge. Over at Just Add Ink, there's some truly inspiring projects from the rest of the team to help get your creative juices flowing.

Happy stamping and enjoy your long weekend if you live in Northern Tasmania.

PS: Instructions on how to make a basic Double Pocket Card from DSP can be found HERE on You Tube. Enjoy!

Bronwyn, this is SO beautiful, and I am so super proud to have this sitting on my display shelf in first place position! All the details just....WORK! The stitching finishes it off perfectly, and I really MUST blow off the dust off my machine as well!

Simply stunning Bron, all the details on this keep me coming back for another it!
This is very beautiful Bronwyn! I love that dsp but still haven't cut into mine yet. You have used it so well! I love the "real" and paper lace and how you've stitched it on. Just wonderful!

Ya know - I used this fold for a card years ago, but haven't used it since because I didn't like how mine turned out - it was too plain for me. But Yaouzers! This is Fantabulous! I love the Mocha Morning paper, your layers, the tags with the trim attached with the brad - all perfectly put together. Thanks for inspiring me to use this fold again!

Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :) Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest. For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box

Hi there.  I've been eying off some great examples of Z-fold, pop-up cards on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make one.  I tweaked the basic design a little by adding some inserts; the ones you use in card-in-a-box style cards.  So I've called my take on this fun fold, a Pop-Up, Z-Fold, Card in a Box! - It's a crate full of summer strawberries with some home-made strawberry jam sitting on the kitchen bench. Summer Strawberries   This card was made for a dear friend's birthday and I'm also entering it into two card challenges - JAI #318 - "Just Add S"    S is for ... strawberries, strawberry jam, straw and summer! Thanks, JAI!   and ...  JUGs #350 - Word Week   Here's a bird's eye view before I added all the stamped strawberries etc. -   Folds flat and fits inside a standard (C6) card size envelope -   Thanks for stopping by, Please note that this is the ori

Scallop Circle Easel Card Tutorial

Punch Potpourri Scallop Circle Easel Card in the Dynamic Duo of Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink 1. Score a piece of card stock through the middle (which is double the length of your die) and line up the folded piece over the Scallop Circle Die (SCD) leaving 4 scallops at the top to form the base of your card. This is how it should look after you run it through the Big Shot Machine . 2. Score a line through the middle of the top Scallop Circle and fold upwards. 3. Apply Sticky Strip or glue to half the Scallop Circle as shown above. 4. Cut out a single Scallop Circle in the same colour (Melon Mambo) and stick it to the folded half so the top layer sits up like an easel (The top half that is facing will now be a double layer and the bottom half, a single layer of card stock). 5. Cut two circles using the lighter shade (Pretty In Pink) and attach one to the base of the card. Sponge around the edges with the darker shade of ink before gluing the other circle to the
