In My Pocket.......There Is A Star

Hello Friends,

Thanks to all of you who joined in last week's challenge, it was lovely to see all your interpretations of Art :O))

This week there is a special theme for the In My Pocket Challenge; The theme is Stars and I am dedicating the theme to all my lovely Angel forum friends who have been total stars and been so supportive of me over the past few trying months. They have been there and listened, supported me and given me their friendship - and for that I am truly thankful. Bless you all, you know who you are xxxx

For newbies to the Challenge, here is a template of the Pocket:


The rules are very simple - make a pocket using this template - you can adjust if you wish, and then decorate it however you want to and add in the theme of the week to your design - the idea is to hide the theme in the flap of the Pocket but you can pop the design where you want really! Next you need to post on this entry to tell me where you are showing your Pocket, then I can come and visit and look at your lovely work of art! See, told you it was simple LOL




I used some delish papers from Fancy Pants for my Pocket. I simply covered the Pocket and then edged the papers with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I used some Alpha stamps to make the message inside and the "Wish" stamp is from Catslife Press.



I cut out the stars from the paper design and popped them onto 3D foam to add some depth to the Pocket. I used a Phototurn as a closure and there you are...a completed Pocket!

Thanks for looking and I do hope that you will be able to take part with this challenge.

PS I almost forgot to mention.....and I don't want to sound like I am bragging or anything...but (am a teensy bit excited!!)....I made a Pocket for the Craft Stamper magazine...and it has been published!!! It is in the October 08 edition which has just gone on sale...and all the details of how I made the Pocket etc are in there too! I am soooo chuffed, it was one of my dreams to have an article in a magazine, and I think that because I kind of devised the template for the Pocket, I am even more chufftier LOL....anyways, thanks again for looking....and if you get the chance to buy the magazine, I would love to hear what you think of the article. Hugs xx
