Handmade Envelopes for Sale

If you've been following me lately, you know I've been into making colorful background paper. I've turned the paper into envelopes/pockets - great for holding coupons, receipts or gift cards.

I made a few extra envelopes to sell, if you're interested - $8 each.
Three of them have sold already, it's kinda hard to tell, but they say "Sold" over the image (in the second row).
They're approximately 7" x 4". They have various patterns inside, but you can tell from the cover if you look close at the border edge. Just message me if you would like to buy one and let me know the row and column of the one you want.

My Artful Envelopes

I've been having fun playing with paint and creating background papers. I decided to turn some of them into envelopes/pouches.
They're approximately 6" x 4", each one unique and hand painted. Below is a picture of the back side.
Next are a few pictures of the one I made for my sister, Diana as part of her bday gift.
I put an elastic closure around them
They have a shallow pocket for coupons or maybe receipts. 
I think these could make great little stocking stuffers or a cute pouch to tuck in a gift card.
I'm in the process of making more. If you're interested in purchasing one, I'm thinking of selling them for $8 each + shipping (sorry, paper dolls not included). Message me if you'd like to buy one and I can keep you posted once I have them done.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thanksgiving!

Roben-Marie Class & Ashley Goldberg Dolls

I just completed a wonderful new on-line class from Roben-Marie Smith called Paper to Painting Workshop.
 Lots of layers of paper, paints, pens, tissue, etc.
I ended up taking one piece of background paper and turned them into notepads. I added copies of my dolls and some white labels, I made from Powerpoint.
I made a bunch of color copies, cut them up, stacked them together and added a book compound adhesive to one side so you can easily pull off one sheet at a time. I think these will make cute packing labels.
Thanks Roben-Marie for a really fun class!

My other favorite artist is Ashley Goldberg, I've bought many of her stamps. She recently created a line of dolls for Land of Nod and I just had to get a couple. Meet Charlotte and Lydia...
I just love their outfits and accessories, but I had to change it up slightly by adding some pink cheeks, red lips and a little white dot in the eyes.

Have a great week!

New Neck-ware Bling

Sometimes a little bling with jeans is the perfect accessory for a little uptown chic. This weekend I made four rhinestone necklaces for something fun to wear.
I used a two part epoxy clay to hold the chain to the center piece, It works great, much better than E6000 and so easy too. 
Might be cute to layer with other jewelry pieces too.

Thanks to my sister, Diana, for giving me the inspiration necklace.

Have a great week everyone!
