Thankful Cards with designer, Kristin!

Hi Crafty Friends!
  Today, TCP Designer, Kristin, has some adorable handmade pocket cards she is sharing perfect for this season. Take a look!  
 
Hi Kristin here with my first blog post for The Crafty Pickle and I thought that this “Thankful Heart” stamps set just screamer for me to make some pocket pages cards for the kids to write what they were “Thankful” for this year!!
On the top left hand corner cards I thought that I would put a 5X7 picture of my family and I would slide it under the “Thankful Heart” stamped sentiment, then on the cards the kids would write over the wood grain embossing folders from Close to my Heart and all the different techniques I tried with the 3 different leafs stamps that were in the Thankful Heart stamp set, and then I added the arrow button flair set on the cards for you to follow your eyes around the layout!!!

 

 And then here are the close-ups:

 


Product I used:
Black  & Brown Stazon
Ranger White Super Fine Embossing Powder
Paper Trimmer, Foam Mat & Corner Rounder

Thank you for looking at my work!!

My name is Julia, I’m 23 and I’m from Russia. I have been scrapbooking for about three years. At the begining I did only greeting cards, but now I enjoy making Layouts, mini-albums, and other scrapbook projects. I was designing for different russian Challenge Blogs. I like to watch at my progress and I want to develope my skills more and more. I think my style is bright, clean and light… with a little bit of splashes ( though my first projects at the beginning of my fascination with scrapbooking were in vintage style) Last year I became a big fan of the CAS style in cardmaking. I’m so excited to be the part of the Crafty Pickle Design Team and I’m ready to create many interesting projects and share it with people!

I’m married to my hubby of twenty five years, I have two rowdy boys ages 8 and 16 years old and I love to read other peoples blogs, go on adventures, pin stuff on pinterest, cook, craft, and am a reality show junkie. I ‘m a sucker for a little romance or a sappy chick flick. I would say my scrapbooking style would be “organized chaos”. And this hobby has become a way for me to connect with others, express myself, preserve memories and relax with my friends

 

I will be back tomorrow to introduce you to more talented ladies!

Happy Crafting!
