My Wednesday Bring Your Own...

I started this during the first gathering at the studio last Wednesday night (see post below).

I had seen the secret formula for how to make these little booklets with pockets in a blog while I was blog hopping last Sunday. I couldn't find my way back to the blog but managed to make a tiny one out of a notepad sheet to use as a template. Once made, I realized it was a perfect fit for ATC's! 

This one is for a woman in one of my art groups that has severe back problems and is stuck in bed on her back for most of the day, everyday. I thought it would be fun to add atc's with silly little quotes on them to hopefully make her smile for a moment or two when she opens her mail. I'm not the best at lettering so it also gave me some great practice for the lettering on my Zetti projects.

By the way, this little pocket folder is one single sheet of 12 x 12 paper with a single straight cut in it :o)


  1. You are so thoughtful I'll post your present wed next I hav'nt forgotton I'm just a bit blank at times !!

  2. Love the bookLet with pockets ~~ could be used for so many different types of cards. Thanks for sharing ♥

  3. Julia, I have signed up for the group you sent me, now waiting to see if I am accepted. And yes I do hand dye some of the velvet for the Strawberries. But I am having a hard time finding good white velvet to dye, most of it is in the very dark jewel colors. Love your work. TTFN

  4. How cute! I love that little booklet. Great idea! Happy Sunday:>)

  5. Hi again Julia there is a great site www.blogdelanine.blogspot .com and she has a tutorial on it on how to make stamps.I draw it first then trace it onto tracing paper so I can position it properly,then rub it onto the eraser and cut.I'm hoping if I get good enough I'll be able to stamp onto fabrics and have my own designs !!
