In My Pocket.......There is a Square

Hello Peeps,

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))

I am taking this opportunity to tell you all that I have some exciting news too!!! Yes! Calv has agreed to join the Creative Design Team for The Artistic Stamper!!! Yippeeeee, welcome Calv, it is great to have you on board...also, equally as exciting, Maddy has agreed to be a very special Guest Designer AND Linda has agreed to become my Principal Artist for the Stitchels range of stamps - so a huge welcome to you both too! I really am sooooo excited, as is Jennie.....and whilst I am prattling on about The Artistic Stamper, I really must point you in the direction of the website and the Blog as there are some exciting new things going on there.....all this excitement...I really must go and have a little lie down now!! Before I go I will just say, please click on the names of the new Design Team members, this will transport you to their own Blogs and I can guarantee that you will all simply love their creations....they are a clever bunch!

Enough from me for one evening, have fun with the Pocket challenge and thanks for looking!

Hugs Hels x
