Scrapbook Heaven "Dad's and Grad's Crop and Hop"

So glad you have stopped by for the Scrapbook Heaven "Dads and Grads" Blog Hop & Crop. If you have no idea what I am talking about, check out the details here!

I would like to show you a fun card/gift card or money holder that would be perfect for the Grads in your life.... Or for a dad (you could fill it with coupons created by the kids) 

This 4 pocket card is made out of a business sized envie 

okay, you should be able to click on this pic and make it bigger to see the dimensions...
You want to seal the envelope and them trim the ends to make it 9inches long. The create a fold line 4inches over from the left

when folded it will be uneven

and you should have created two pockets

using a circle punch or by hand cut out a notch in the top of each pocket, this will make it easier to remove the tags or gift cards/money placed the pockets before giving 

inking the edges of your envie to match your chosen papers, cover the outside pocket and the inside of each pockets with pattern paper

Now you are going to create the top pockets:

1st strip for the pockets is 3"x11 3/4" 
with folds at 3/4"   3"   4" and 4" remaining 

2nd strip for pockets is 3"x4 1/4" 
with folds at 3/4" and 3" with 1/2" remaining

fold direction for long piece, you want the side of the paper that you want visible on top

fold for short piece (1/2" flap is now on the lefthand side)

Join the two strips as show above (click on pic)
the 1/2" flap on the short piece hooks under the 4" flap on the long piece creating a W shape

closed is the time to round corners or use boarder punches on strips

open up the card and glue the folded strips on bottom pocket, 1/2" from the fold line. The flaps (now boarder punched) will fold over the front and back of the card when closed.
you can cover the topside of the bottom pocket with a strip of paper anytime during this step. once the top pockets are in-place glue the card closed (glue the top pocket down ontop of the bottom pocket) 

you will need to glue down the flaps from the top pockets

be sure to ink and cover the back with paper, and then glue down the pocket flap

Now just decorate and add tags-journaling cards-money-giftcards........

Now it’s your turn! Create a project using this tutorial and upload it to the Scrapbook Heaven Gallery or post a link to your project on this blog post by June 25th. One lucky random winner will be selected to receive a prize 

Be sure to return to the Scrapbook Heaven Blog tomorrow to see what your next stop is.

Inspiration Day

Its the 14th and that means inspiration day for Everythingscrappn :)

This month I worked with the awesome new company Echo Park and their first release Sweet Summertime 
the paper pack that I worked with is already sold out but the papers and stickers are still available individually...Hurry before they are gone as well! . Below is the 12x12 card-stock sticker sheet from the line   

Okay, I finally gave in and did my first LO with a banner (or bunting) and I have to say that these stickers made it SOOOooooo easy! I added a little stickles and a few buttons to the banner for some quick dimension 

these bright summery colors are perfect for outdoors photos.

I also used some of the new Tiny Type letter stickers from Cosmo Cricket. Love these! They are perfect for subtitles, and even small enough to use for journaling. ES is carrying them in 6 fun colors. 

Thanks so much for stopping sure to leave a comment, you never know if there will be a bloghop prize :)

Twisted #53 :)

Boy I have been crazy busy lately and not blogging much, but I am scrapping :)
this weeks twisted sketch was a fun one to work with, and the twist is "acrylic" I used a small acrylic bird colored with gold alcohol inks. Be sure to head over to Twisted Sketches to get your copy of the sketch!

I haven't played with my inks in a while, gotta get those out more often! 

while I was digging through my stash I found one lonely piece of grunge it had to go on the page :)

Be sure to check out what all the awesomely twisted sisters did with the sketch ♥
