Marleen DT - Pocket Letter

Morning everyone.
A post today for 
Funky Hand 
  Today's project is something completly new for me. Ive made a Pocket Letter using the
V. Funky CD.
 You can find it in the STORE, HERE

Ive never made a Pocket Letter before. To be honest, untill a few weeks ago, I never even heard of them. But after finding a FB group and matching blog, I had a nosy and decided to try them out and to be honest, I think it was quite fun.
Now Im still not really sure of all the "rules" for making pocket letters and I used a 4 pocket instead of a 9 pocket sleve as that was all I had. But never the less, here it is..

As I said above I only had a 4 pocket sleeve where I think the norm is 9 pocket but I think the idea is that you decorate the pockets on the inside and outside. I think you can add some goodies too but a short letter is the key. The idea is that you then swap your pocket letters with a partner around the world. This Letter is going to Canada to a new friend.

It seem a good way to use up scraps of papers or scrapkits you may have lying round and as the pockets can fold up, and you only add what you wish, postage can be kept down.

Anyway that is all for today.
Many thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Smile and Be Happy!

Hello to you all, it's Sammylou here with a card made using the V Funky cd-rom.

I have used the Emerald View collection to make a card that's perfect for sending when you don't really have an occasion but want to send a card, just because!

The collection comes with ready made toppers so once you've printed the papers you want and cut out the topper, you are all ready to go! Finish with a few punched flowers and you're done,

I love making cards like this and the collections on the cd-rom make it really simple to make some lovely cards, and the variety on the cd-rom, which is only £1.00 at the moment means you can make a multitude of cards without any duplication.

See you all soon for another share, Sammylou xxx

Spring Moments Gift Jar and Banner Card

And now for something a little bit different!  I've had this plastic jar a while and knew it would come in useful at some point!  I've used papers from V Funky - Spring Moments and made a removable cover for the front, a flower tag for the top of the jar and also a banner thank you card.

My eldest son has written the gift tag and I've attached it to the top of the jar with a funky flower and ribbon.  I've also added glass 'confetti' to the flowers on the pattern.

The banner has been made with left over scraps of card and I've used letters from a word book as templates, threaded ribbon through the tops and used glossy accents as glue to the reverse to stop the ribbon from moving.

Spring Morning Gift Bag, by Kathy

Hi, it's Kathy today, and this time I've a gift bag to share with you

I've used  "Spring Morning" designs from this month's showcase CD "V. Funky to make this one, and it's nice and easy because I've used an Xcut die

Materials and Tools
"Spring Morning" from the Funky Hand  CD "V. Funky
the designs were all printed onto "Diamond White" Bazzill card, which has a lovely soft sheen to it (but makes photographing difficult!)
Gift Bag die set (Xcut)
Tab closure is hand cut
EK Success border punch
Tag die (Crafters Companion)
the Flower on the tag is made with this paper:
I printed it in 2 sizes and coloured the petals with 2  colours from the Spring Morning collection, then cut the flowers out by hand
Tiny circle punch (Xcut )
Bakers Twine
I hope you like it - my tip for today is to experiment at printing on different kinds of paper and card - you'll find lots of new ways to use your Funky Hand stash!

Don't forget, this CD is on offer in the SHOP for just £1 at the moment so don't miss out! Here's a quick look at just some of the designs you'll get on the CD

We'd love to see what you make with Funky Hand goodies too.....
Thanks for visiting today

For you Dad!

Morning all (ok so I know its actually afternoon and I am horribly late but Please don't tell the boss!) Tammy here. 

Back to share another project for Funky Hand! This month the DT are all using the Funky Daze CD which you can get here for a fabulous price of just £1! 

For my card today I used the linen collection again, I kept it based on the same as my last card so as to not have too many scraps. I also decorated the inside but I forgot to take a picture!  

Thats all for now! 

Remember to pop back tomorrow to see more fab inspiration from the funky girls!
