I stamped my image and watercoloured it in with Marvy Le Plume pens, then matted on to backing paper. I embossed some paper with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, and matted the main image on to that and then made a little pocket with another piece. I made a tag and stamped the message to go in the pocket, then punched out some flowers in co-ordinating papers to embellish.

I decided to use this Magnolia Goblin stamp of William because I love the cute little catapult in his pocket! I coloured William in with Distress Inks and matted him on top of K & Co Hannah papers. I also added a little pocket in the bottom left corner and added a tag which says 'you are loved'. I finally added some little blue buttons to the corners of the card.

For my card I have made a double pocket card. This is a very simple fold and I have used double sided card to make it. All the edges have been edged with a Gold Krylon pen. The images are from the Joanna Sheen Fashion Boutique CD. I have added a couple of Flora Doodles and embellished the tags with ribbon.

For this week's theme I made an inchie (1'' x 1''). I decorated it with some silver beads, a crafty individuals image and a paper flower. I cut out a tiny pocket in brown cardstock and made a tiny tag to go inside it. I wrote the word love and finished off by adding some ribbon.

For this card I cut a pocket out of plan card and stamped it with the words and stars in blue stazon and added hand drawn stitched around the edge in blue pen and added gems. i then mounted the pocket onto the checked paper.
I made a tag with the sizzix and stamped it wit a checked stamp in blue stazon then stapled on a yellow ribbon.

I stamped the jeans pocket stamp twice with faded jeans ink onto white card. I cut around one of the images then cut the pocket and belt loops from the other and decoupaged it on to the first. I distressed the jeans a little with a brown ink. I threaded brown ribbon through the belt loops and secured at the back. I put brads onto the pocket and attached a flower, then rolled up a
£10-00 note and placed it in the pocket. I mounted the image onto gold card then attached this to a brown base card.
