Happy second day of Autumn !
Thank you for visiting and helping me bid an official farewell to summer. Unless of course you live south of the equator and you’re planning your next summer garden or holiday at the beach. Isn’t this a big beautiful world? I’m especially reminded of it everyday when I blog or visit Instagram. It absolutely warms my heart. To celebrate, why not create this cute coloring page, graciously offered for free from Tammy Tutterow! You can download it at the link on her blog
As you know, I’m a big fan of colouring and Tammy’s collections of stamps. When I posted my Coasting Through Summer project on Instagram, Tammy contacted me personally to say she loved them and asked for the link to our blog! Exciting right ?!
Whether next door or half way around the world, I love connecting with artists and crafters. Speaking of connections, I’m excited to trade a Pocket Letter with Marie Friant, a fantastic paper artist living in Belgium. How fun is that?! You can find the lovely Marie on Instagram or visit Something About Marie for an eye full of wonderful! I just love her style.
Have you heard of ‘Pocket Letters’ ? It’s a whole new way of crafting with paper, Sounds like something we all like to do, right? There’s ton’s of inspiration at Pinterest!
You make nine small cards, paintings, collages or whatever’s in your bag of tricks and pop them into a nine pocket page protector measuring 8.5 x 11. I used the new Prima Rossi Belle Collection . An opulent combinations of romance and metallic coolness that nods to the past with a modern attitude!

Their A4 pad was wonderful for creating the illusion of 3D embellishments on each collage. Here, I’m sharing four of them.
I chose it because it’s Canadian. Can you see the cancel marks? I left the yellowed tape on top where Mr Milner carefully pasted it to his album all those years ago. From one heart to another, this little stamp from 1903 will arrive via snail mail once again.
This is the second trade I’ve made with gals I’ve connected with on Instagram. It’s a fun community of creative souls. The gilded bird and star tucked into these collages were a gift from Jen who lives in Colorado. Jen sells her creations on Etsy!
I’ll be making another Pocket Letter for Urban soon. If you’re inspired to join in the fun, you can visit this link to learn more. In the meantime, Ralph Waldo Emerson recommends, “be silly, be honest, be kind”.
Thanks so much for coming by
