Pumpkin Spice Latte Addict’s Coffee Flair Pocket Letter

Happy Friday Pickle Pals!

I am super psyched to share one of my most recent Pocket Letters with you today!

I will be the first to admit that Pumpkin Spice lattes are actually NOT my cup of tea (or coffee), if you will.  However, I DO adore me some caramel frappoccino’s whenever I get close enough to our local Target with a Starbucks inside.  It’s good for my hips and my wallet that it’s not convenient to go to on a daily basis!Ha!! Ha!!!

The basis for my pocket letter was centered around some clipart that I found through Pinterest and Google–the memes, e-greetings, and pretty doodled coffees paired so well with a DCWV Fall paper stack, some old Target dollar spot felt leaves and pumpkins, some new Target dollar spot gold leaf stickers, and last but not least–my awesome coffee flair pieces, twine, and sequin relish mix from The Crafty Pickle shop!  Check out some of my detail shots below–click them to see them larger.

I hope you get to enjoy your own cup of coffee today and the beauty of fall before winter sneaks in!  We have flurries on the forecast here in the northeast this weekend.  It’s too early for me to even think about saying that FOUR letter word–haha.  Keep checking back because our shop should be reopening soon!

Scrapping with Flair!

Hey Crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest layout with you.

I love making scrapbook pages and incorporating flair buttons on my pages always excites me! Here is a look at my page:

new jeep

I started with the latest sketch from My Scraps & More. This is a page about my son’s love for his Power Wheels Jeep! I used lots of round elements to mimic the tires of a vehicle.

I adhered the “Documented” flair button onto a cork circle for more depth. I also used some self-adhesive sequins, also from TCP!

Many times flair buttons are thought to be made for PL or planners, but as you can see, they work well on traditional scrapbook pages too!

Thanks for visiting today!

Sweet Birthday Card

Hey Crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest card using The Crafty Pickle flair.

My sweet friend from high school (yep, we’ve been friends a LONG time!) had a birthday a week ago and I made her this card:

hbd 2u card

It’s a pretty simple card, using scrap papers from  my stash, some rumpled ribbon, foam alphas and this very cute elephant flair button! She adores elephants and when I first saw this button, she came to mind!

Isn’t the flair button the cutest?! I just love it and hope she enjoys this sweet card as well.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope it’s a crafty one for you!

Pocket Scrapbooking Cards and Shaker Pockets!!!

Pocket Scrapbooking Cards and Shaker Pockets
Hi Friends!
It’s Paula here with a few pocket scrapbooking cards and some shaker pockets I made. For the cards I just cut some cardstock to 3×4 and decorated with patterned paper and stamps and then added some sequins from the relish mixes in the shop…so cute!
I also added some of the awesome Disney flair and washi tape in the shop!!cards
For the shaker pocket I used a Simple Stories Photo Flip and added relish mix, a Disney flair and a few Disney punch out shapes. Then I sealed it with double sided tape and put some glitter washi tape on top of that. Easy peasy!

For the planner shaker pocket I used a Heidi Swap 3×4 card pocket and added relish mix and some Halloween shapes and then sealed it the same way…works perfectly!

It’s Almost Time for Pumpkin Spice!

I am sad to see summer come to a close in New York as fall makes its way in, but nevertheless it’s coming…my parents are visiting from North Carolina and we even made a trip to the apple orchard for cider donuts already, and I had to buy fleece pajamas for my 17 month old because our evenings and mornings are getting chilly.  Chilly weather is perfect for warm beverages–especially a hot cup of coffee!  So of course to celebrate Pumpkin Spice season and to play with my new Fuse tool and my new “Treats of Friendship” stamps from Close To My Heart, I had to make a coffee Project Life shaker card!  Here is a link to the shop to order the stamps HERE
fallcoffee2

I stamped the coffee cup on 3 different patterned papers and cut out the pieces to layer them together for a fun fall to-go cup.  Then I stamped the sentiment “I like you a latte” on my background paper.  I inked just the first part of the sentiment and stamped it, and then inked and stamped the word “latte” into the heart.  Clear stamps are the best for tricks like that!  I created my shaker pocket with my fuse tool and used coppery orange leaf confetti and real coffee grounds inside!  Yum!

Love Your Selfie Flair!!!

Hi Carrie here to share with you my latest project life page!!

This page is a 12×12 WRMK photo sleeve page. The paper collection I used for this layout is by Echo Park “Here and Now” by Lori Whitlock. I love the bright summer colors of this collection. I just celebrated my Birthday on the 17th of this month. I wanted to create a page about Me!

pl page

The new “Selfie” line of flairs by TCP are perfect for us scrapbookers to use when creating these kinds of layouts. We tend to scrapbook a lot about our kids and families, neglecting to make pages and preserve memories about ourselves.

close-up

I would encourage you to include a few “selfies” in your albums this year. I am in love with the new pickle relish sequin mixes that are now available in a variety of colors.

close-up1

There are three different sized, slightly cupped, sequins in the relish mixes. The mix I used is called “rock candy” this mix actually has four sizes and is the perfect embellishment to add a pop of interest to your crafty projects!

Do not forget that the etsy store is closed for a little bit and will be opening soon …so be watching the blog for updates….thanks!!!

Gold Gold Gold Mini Album!!!

Happy Monday to everyone!!!

I love to make a mini album especially if it is for my two nieces ….we had such a wonderful time at Disneyland and California Adventure in July that I just had to make an album!!!

I just love going there all the people ( cast members) just go out of their way to help you in any way that they can!!!

My method to making a mini album is I slide all the pictures in the protectors, then go back and add the paper, and next I decorate the cover because that sets the tone for the album for me …and last (my favorite)  I add all the wonderful embellishments from The Crafty Pickle!!!

Here is my album cover:
