Another Paper Doll Pocket Letter

Another Pocket Letter to share, with another paper doll theme.  This one is for a swap-bot swap in my Paper Doll Group. I made several of these dolls with the Julie Nutting Stamp and Graphic 45 Le Cirque papers a long time ago.  Now I finally got the chance to use one of those dolls in a craft.  But, figuring

Wizard of Oz Pocket letter

What’s more fun that the Wizard of Oz?  Well, maybe “Wicked” the Musical because I loved Elphaba so very, very much.  But the Wizard of Oz is such a classic book and movie.  Of course I jumped at the chance to swap a Wizard of Oz themed pocket letter. The idea for this one came while lying in bed, right

Meet Gert – the space/time traveling Trapeze artist

I created Gert for a dear swapping friend in Wisconsin.  I hope she likes it.   Gert was created for the Paper Persona swap on Swap-bot.  She has a short story tucked inside the tag base that tells of her attempts to travel in space time using her concentration, sounds and her trapeze.   You may think it’s crazy, but

Vintage Circus ATC using Graphic 45 Le Cirque papers

It’s probably been a couple of years since I stumbled across a stash of Le Cirque papers by Graphics 45 at the Tuesday Morning store.  I bought way more than I needed.  And I love the chance to use anything that is vintage circus.  Thus my Vintage Circus ATC was made for a recent swap on Swap-Bot.
