A Springy Pocket Page with Peg Stamps, A Snail Mail Gift

I’ve never made a pocket page before and thought it would be a great time to make a spring themed pocket page to give to one of my viewers.
I trimmed different papers to the size of the pockets and made sure the colors all coordinated.  I wasn’t sure exactly what I was supposed to be doing in making my pocket page, so went with a spring theme and gave some ribbons, twines, buttons and sequins as small tokens for the receiver of the pocket page.
I used peg stamps from http://www.rubberstamptapestry.com and had so much fun stamping backgrounds with them and on one page, made a basket full of flowers.  I love playing with the peg stamps and think you will too.  Lindsay, the Frugal Crafter, currently has a promotional code for 20% off peg stamps and the owners of Rubber Stamp Tapestry, Donny and Rebecca,  are also offering a bunch of sets on clearance (that I had to have some and just ordered more, because I love them.)  Here is the link to Lindsay’s video where she offers the discount code.

I used Stampin’ Up inks, Distress Ink, Memento Dew Drops and Hero Arts inks.  I used a Stampin’ Up Always Artichoke marker for all of the green details.

Rich thought it would be too long if he didn’t speed through the stamping so unfortunately, he cut out the names of the stamps.  I’m sorry about that. If you want to know the name of any of the stamps, please ask and I’ll be sure to get back to you with it.

I used Spare Parts from the Paper Studio for the big white paper flower and then used a pink brad from a set of brads called Chunky Brads from Doodlebugs.

I used wooden shaped buttons of a dog and butterfly and added a dot stamp as the background for it and put some twine on to finish another card.

I used a small purple flower stamp and some pink ribbon to finish another.

Dollar Tree stickers of flowers finished the next.

The caulk medallion that was colored with Ken Oliver Liquid Metals in Amethyst and some purple twine covered the next paper.

I used one paper to surround with sequins and glued a few on the card and filled the pocket with more sequins and used washi tape to close that section so the sequins wouldn’t fall out..

The last paper, I had punched with the EK Success punch on pink paper and put a stamp of “Your Friendship is a blessing” on the pink and backed the pink paper with purple paper and added three flower buttons that I put pearls in the centers of to create another floral card.  I stamped some leaves on it as well.

If you are interested in having me mail this pocket page to you, (within the United States), please comment below with why you would like to have it.  I’ll choose the person whose comment really speaks to me to “win” this pocket page.  I always love hearing from you and would love it if you leave a comment even if you don’t want to win the pocket page.
Please give the reason you would like to have the pocket page, to be considered for this pocket page by midnight March 19, 2017.  It’s not a drawing, I’m basing the winner on the comment that is the most heartfelt.  I know this isn’t a big prize, but I’m hoping someone will really want it for their collection of pocket pages.  I really hope you enjoyed this video and that one of you would be happy to have it.  Thanks for watching!
