Hawaiian Themed Cards

Almost finished with this card set .  A guy ordered a set of Hawaiian Themed cards plus two Ningyogami cards.  For these simple design cards, I think the paper makes the card!  The paper in this case means textured.  Off to create the Ningyogami cards . . .

A couple of months ago, the theme for the tea swap was "Anything Asian". Here's a card I created for my partner. I learned how to do it from a really nice man who worked at The Paper Source. The only thing is it used a nice long sheet of Washi paper. Also for my tea partner, I created the little tea holders and added a hula girl magnet and chocolate mac nut candy. This tea swap went to Texas!

Washi tape card (3x3)

To date, this has got to be my favorite card design using washi tape: Cover a square with washi tape. Add dimentional tape to pop it up. Add small heart punches to the back on the top of your square to represent a bow at the top of the square and you have a gift box card! Add a sentiment and you are done. This design is on a 3 x 3 card. Quick, easy and cute!!

More Ningyogami . . .

More Ningyogami:

I found some scraps of Washi paper on my crafty corner and turned them into cards.

I really like this lavender paper.

The base of these last two cards are actual Christmas cards from Japan. I cut off the cover of the card, downsized it to fit on an A2 card and added the doll. I'm surprised it came out pretty nice :o)

Pocket Letter Swap

Each month, we have a pocket letter swap and a tea swap. The pocket letter swap has become quite popular recently and involves filling a 9 pocket trading card sleeve with goodies and mailing it to your partner. One must also add a personal letter to the receiver for that is what makes it a letter. It can be mailed flat into a 9 x 11 mailing envelope or folded in thirds and placed in a legal size envelope.

For the creator of the pocket letter, all the odd number crafting embellishments are put into good use. The small size of the pockets shouts at you to be filled. Then your imagination and creativity are released because it seems so easy to fill out one small sized pocket. Anything goes, as long as it fits into the 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 pockets.  Sometimes there are pockets inside pockets.

The sky is the limit when decorating these fun pocket letters. In fact, I have a hard time knowing when to stop adding things and I just keep on adding, and adding.

For the receiver of the pocket letter, it is always a surprise to see what the creator has created for you. Each little space are filled with little goodies.

Create a pocket letter today and gift it to someone! Or better yet, consider joining our monthly pocket letter swap!
