Technique Tuesday - Creating Your Own Cards w/Texture

Hi friends, happy Tuesday!!

Here's a fun little tutorial that I came up with for our "Technique Tuesday" over on the Timeless Twine blog for creating your own pocket scrapbooking cards with some fun texture. :)

1.  Take some cards (color and size of your choice!)
2. and spray with any kind of color spray.  I used Heidi Swapp's Color Shine.
(I misted in the kitchen...shhhh, don't tell my husband!!)
3.  Put into embossing folder and run through whatever embossing machine you've got.

4 and 5 are the completed embossed cards.
6 was actually a happy mistake that I didn't know I was making.  One of the cards was placed differently than the other creating a de-bossed look.  Kind of fun!

After your cards are dry (I left mine out overnight!), then comes the fun part of decorating them.

I used Timeless Twine in Lemonade YellowAqua BluePurple Passion, and Bubblegum Pink to add even more dimension than the embossing made.  I also added a few sequins in (Raspberry Pink) for some added sass. :)

Move It Monday - Pocket Page Style

Happy Monday, friends!!

I'm up today on the Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz blog with a fun project incorporating {movement} into my pocket pages.

I found this tutorial on the Heidi Swapp blog done by the {fabulous} Kim Jeffress and died over the cuteness.  I had to try it.

I modified the instructions quite a bit to make this work for my pocket albums.  I created a 4x6 card that would be {perfect} for a title card for your Valentines Day spreads.



Used in a pocket page: 

The tag pulls right out of a 4x6 pocket to reveal some perfect for Valentines Day hearts!

How are {YOU} going to use movement in your next project??

I used Timeless Twine in Strawberry Cupcake, Bella Creationz Happy Days stamps, and Bella Creationz Sequins in Raspberry Pink Mix, as well as "Love Story" 6x6 paper pad from Fancy Pants.
