Joy’s Life meets Mary Engelbreit

29 Aug
Hello everyone, Jeannie from The Polka Cabana here today with a fun gift card/tag/letter etc. idea.  I hope that some of you from Close Friends on Facebook are here to visit and get an idea of what you can also do with things you might have lying around your house.  I am on a design team for a fun site called Joy’s Life.com.
All of us on the Joy’s Life DT are working with these Swatch Tag. Swatch tags are used for lots of crafters to keep track of paper and pen color samples etc. 
Here is my completed project.
 
Here is a side view, these tags could be used as anything.
 
I have gathered all of mine together as a card/letter
.
 
I had a lot to say, so each tag is numbered on the back to keep them in order.
 
 
I used quite a few stamp sets and had fun mixing and matching the phrases to get the exact words I needed.  That is the best thing about these stamps for me.  First there are so many phrases and then if you get creative, you can make up your own by mixing, matching and splicing! 
 
 
 
All of my images are taken from a Mary Engelbreit desk calendar.
 
All of my fun papers are from Canvas Corp.
 
A big thank you to May Arts for my wonderful ribbon.
 
The buttons?  Are from PaperTrey Ink.
 
Isn’t it great how I was able to get some sort of sentiment for each tag I made?
 
I am so happy to have these Joy’s Life stamps, it makes projects like this so much more fun to put together.
 
Here is a final peek at all of them together.
I hope you have liked my project for the day.
This has been Jeannie posting for Joy’s Life.com. 
A special thank you to any and all of you who have stopped by from Close Friends!

Back to School Altered Notebook

4 Aug
 
Hi everyone…I am here with a bit of a late post for Joy’s Life.com, thanks to lots of smoke in the air affecting my little one with asthma..not a fun past 48 hours, let me tell you!
This week over at Joy’s Life.com , we are all working on projects gearing up for BACK TO SCHOOL. 
I have this adorable purse to show you.  Have you seen these before????
Can you tell what it is made out of??
 
 
 
First of all let me point out I have made a sweet little tag from the LOTS OF PUN stamp set.
 
Here is a close up of the front, you can tell, but the sewing scene is all sewn into a pouch of vinyl.
 
Here is a side view and maybe now you can tell this is made from a simple inexpensive composition notebook.
 
Here is the inside.
 
More of the inside.
 
Here is a view of the back.
 
One last look at the front.
 
I didn’t have pattern for this, I just kind of made it up as I went along.
I just LOVE it!  I thought it was perfect for the whole back to school theme.
Maybe a bit fancy for grade school, but maybe for the up and coming new designer, seamstress?  
Who knows!  It is just SEW DARN CUTE!!
This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
