Simply Betty Challenges: Pockets in my Layout

Greetings! It’s time for another Scrap Team challenge from Simply Betty Stamps! This week, we are challenging you to make a layout using pockets! Wanna see my project?

These photos are from 2009. My sisters and I threw my Mom a surprise Pirate Birthday Party. She adores all things pirate (especially if said pirates look like Johnny or Orlando!), and we’ve actually had some other pirate bashes since then. Anywho, I decided to use Simply Betty’s Jack and Lizzy digis on top of my pocket. Here’s what is inside of the pocket.

Two more photos! Pockets are a great way to add lots of extra stuff to your page that would not have fit otherwise. And, they are also great to hide things that may be too personal for everyone to see. That’s not the case here though. Look at how teeny Phoenix is! He’s only 6 months old! Awwwww!

Here’s a close up of Lizzy and Jack, plus my sis Monica and my BFF Terry peeking out of the pocket. FYI, the dude holding Phoenix in the other pocket picture is our very good friend Donmar. I colored the SBS digis with my markers.

And there’s my very happy Mother! She’s squeeing with delight! And oh yeah…that’s me holding Nix. :)

I do hope you will join the Simply Betty gals for this new challenge! It’s easy, and a lot of fun! So hop over to the SBS Challenge Blog to see what the other chicks have cooked up for you and to play along! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
