Themes to choose from for this month's pocket letter swap hosted here on sb.com by Rebecca (Nunya) were Birds, Butterflies and Dragonflies or Flowers. I drew our swap boss's name this month and we chose to incorporate them all! Since Rebecca's favorite color is pink, I used that for the dominant color, choosing Stamperia's Dream Collection in paper. They had these pretty tags already printed up in the collection with the exception one or two that I handcut by tracing the tags over some of the paper. I decided to emboss the edges with Stampendous Shabby Pink embossing enamel and then punched holes at the top and added the eyelets. Strands of burlap adorn the tags leftover from some wispy flowers I made a long time ago.
Special thanks to Carri (Caletts) for the pink pearls, Tutu Pink mini prills, diecut flower under pocket 3's butterfly, Vintage Peacock embossing powder - pocket 1 and teal chunky glitter glass - pocket 8
Brandy Johnson for the wood birdcage & intricate die cut - Pocket 5 and aqua chunks Pocket 3 - (not sure if she's on sb.com)
Marylou (Meggie's Nana) for the Fluttering By stamp - Pocket 3
Laura (LauralsAttic) for the diecut in Pocket 1 and Garden Gate in Pocket 8
Karin (Mosbarger) for the die cut leaves in Pockets 7 and 8
Kelly (KVRLVN) for the leaves in Pocket 9
Lisa (Iluvcats) for the diecut lace trim in Pocket 9
Char (Charcats) for the Seize the Day stamp in Pocket 1
Mary (Abbygirl) for the pink roses trim on the side
In pocket 5 under the bird is actual material from a nest I picked up in our yard, most likely a robin's nest. I believe the wind blew it out of one of our trees. I've had it for a couple of years!
Reneabouquets products - all three gorgeous butterflies, dragonfly and the teal chunky glitter glass that Carri gave me.
