For the lovely Judaline who I have swapped with several times in the past…I’m sending her this Halloween Paper Doll Pocket Letter.
I used several Tim Holtz dies in this one – distressed doily, sewing room for the spool that has washi tape on it, the tattered florals for the flower in the center, tiny tabs and tags in the upper right, as well as townscape and scaredy cat on the left, and potion bottles on the bottom center. I guess I didn’t realize how many dies I used until I listed them all.
I’ve gotten in the habit of using an alphabet stamp to label each pocket on the backside. It looks clean this way. The recipient can easily tell what’s hidden in each pocket when goodies are sandwiched between papers. In my earlier pocket letters I was printing labels, but I like this stamping better and it goes pretty fast.
If you’ve been reading lately, you’ll know I’m pretty obsessed with Catherine Moore’s Character Construction line of rubber stamps for making paper dolls. The girl in the Skeleton costume is from that line (Bird & Bee Paperie #17) and she has a magnet on her back so she can be put on the fridge or other magnetic board. I also used the airplane and banner in the upper pockets (le Cirque #14)
I’ve had to slow down my crafting because I’m finally making some progress on remodeling the kitchen. Combining the kitchen work with all my father’s doctor’s appointments creates quite a disruption. But I’m hoping to get back to full time crafting pretty soon and I’m pretty sure I will be re-opening the DuhBe Etsy shop again. But that’s a post for another time.
I hope everyone else is enjoying the “slowing down time” that is Fall!!
