Fun Friday with Pam

Lets have Halloween at Christmas.I managed just one craft this year.
I purchased these ornaments as blanks. Then used Copic markers to draw the 'Jack and Sally' faces. My girls love 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' and were trilled with the new ornaments.
NOTE: I did try with a general permanent marker,
          but the ink just didn't show up solid enough.
Maybe the shoes for birthday's....
Thanks Pinterest for these

Copics and Prismacolor Pencils Class with Shari January 20

Here's another set of three beautiful cards from Shari that use Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils to color the images ( the use of Prismacolor pencils is optional as the cards look lovely without the addition ).  This month's cards feature two cards using Stamping Bella images to make a wonderful general themed card and a cute angel card, plus an adorable High Hopes image made into a birthday card.  
Shari will be back to oversee this class, and is offering this as an all day get together.  You can join in the fun all day, or come when the time works for you.  The class will be set up first thing in the morning, so start time is 10 am, and then you can stay until 4 pm to color and socialize.  Shari will be available to answer any questions, but will be working in the store as well, so you get to visit, shop, and color with her!
Cost - $30.00 for all three kits as pictured
Date - Saturday, January 20
Time - 10 am to 4 pm

Fun Friday with Pam

This is the continuation from last weeks Pocket Letter HERE
Now that I have some elements done, I have backed the cards with a sturdy card stock. Then I cut them carefully apart on the pencil lines. As you can see this immediately gives a different perspective. I can now see which cards will need some more details added in. I can do this with graphics, words, stamps, paint, really whatever I feel will suit the look I am after.
This is before I put it in the sleeve. It is okay, but not done yet.

This is the final letter, I added a hand made 3-D 'WINTER' banner to the top, tag to the side and ribbons along the punched edge. As well as more detail and graphics to the individual cards. NOTE: to send this in an envelope, I will undo the knots as they add unnecessary bulk. The recipient can tie them when she gets it. Also I will be stuffing the back with notes and goodies once I know who my swap out partner is.

Fun Friday with Pam

Where do You draw your ideas and inspiration from?
Like most Scrapbookers, I am always on the look out for a spark to launch into the next project. This 'blueprint' started with the idea, that I would scrapbook a series of photos I have snapped on my phone recently.
 I am one of those people without skills that will run to every window or deck around the house to get a photo of the moon. The full moon calls to me. I will pull over on the side of the road to try to capture its essence too. I never got them into a printer from my phone. I really did have every intention of doing a layout. However, this is what happened.
A trip to pinterest for the multiple mood board ideas.
I LOVE Pocket letters, I love the way they go together, the way they look, everything about them! The moon photo had so many layers of blue that I was searching for to launch from. This is a pocket letter beginnings post. The theme for this swap I am hosting at 'Paper Traders mail Art Group' is 'Winter'.
For the background I chose a paper placemat that suited the color pallet I needed. It doesn't matter that I am winter themed, but using a flower background. I cut it to work as a solid piece for the beginnings basically 8-1/2" x 10-1/2". You can see that I gridded it off into ATC size sections. This will help to position some of the elements before I cut them apart into individual cards.
Next I added some stamping and embossing for the background. Also gathered and made different elements that will be on the final work.
I used a crafters workshop 'aspen' template to get the tree outlines. Along with the cut off pieces from the placemat. The colors will match perfectly.  Then I fussy cut them and added inks for a more real looking treeline.
Check back next Friday to see how the end project came together!

Thanks Pinterest and Pinners!
