Well, I am a little bit late in posting the new In My Pocket theme this week...I have a really good excuse though...I got up late and ended up rushing about before work...and as soon as I got home I made the Pocket and fair dashed to the laptop to post it! Am I forgiven? :O))
The theme this week is Squares. You can use any medium you like so long as it is square in shape. Here is the template for your Pocket:
For mine, I used the brand new TSV that has finally arrived at Chez Hels....it took long enough but I can say it was deffo worth the wait. For those of you who missed out, I am sad for you cos it truly is the most gorgeous collection of papers, chipboard, ribbons, scrapbooks and photo frames from Cosmo Cricket. Those of you who know me will know that I just looooove Cosmo Cricket and this selection is superb!
I covered my template with co-ordinating papers, stamped cut out a few Stitchels Mini & Mini Mini flowers, which are available from The Artistic Stamper and then popped them onto the Pocket. The squares are inside the flap, three of them which I layered together to make a little mat for my message, which is a stamp from Hero Arts (actually the stamp on the front is by them too!) The closure is actually a chipboard piece which I attached to the base of the Pocket using brads from my stash and then popped a couple more Stitchels on top of it. The buttons on the Stitchels are also from the TSV....they are so cute aren't they?
Anyways, as usual, once you have made your Pocket, please leave a message here and add a link to the place you are showing yours so I can come and nosey :O))
