In My Pocket.......There Are Some Ribbons

Hello peeps,

A new theme for the In My Pocket challenge today! Thank you to all of you for joining in last week...all those little birdy creations were super.

The theme this week is Ribbon.

I have a little something here to help you a bit too if you are stuck with the template....I sweet talked my Grim into making a proper computerised template jobby (cos we all know how thick I am and could never have made this!!)

Here it is........hope this helps you...and thank you to Grim for being clever!! xx


The rules are the same as usual, make a Pocket, decorate it how you want to and then add some secret ribbons to the inside of the flap....you can add them to the outside too but there should be a little bit of ribbon inside...that is the point of the challenge I suppose!! LOL



For my Pocket, I used my favest papers in the whole wide world which are the Avenue Collection by Crate Paper.



I also used some of the Stitchel stamps, stamping them direct to the paper and then cutting them out and layering them to make them look fatter.



Now, I have a new camera!!! Yes, it is fabby and no, I still am useless taking piccies.....Grim has used it and taken some great shots, I used it and got the usual blurry images!!! I am going to have to read the manual and figure what I am doing wrong.



Anyways, have a good day and I hope you have fun with your Pocket, please remember to add you comment to this post along with a link to the place you are showing your work of art.

Have fun!
