My project today features the new Pocket dies.  (please excuse my photos today...I'm creating and photographing on the go while I'm here in Utah for our Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking editorial board meeting!)


Speaking of crafting on the go, sometimes you have to make do with what you have...notice the bleachy messy stitching lines on the "jean" pocket?  I was wanting to heat emboss them with white powder, but none of us thought to bring it, so I had to get a little creative.  I thought maybe I could find some bleach here in the condo so I could stamp with that, but no luck there either.  But what I did find under the kitchen sink was dishwasher soap...ha!  I dissolved a bit with some water on a folded paper towel, then "inked" my stamp with it and stamped it onto my project.  Once it dried it turned white.  Kind of messy, but kind of fun at the same time...kind of perfect for a distressed denim look.  And also good for entertainment here at the condo...I don't think my fellow Go-to Gals will let me forget this anytime soon.  :-)  The Xyron is great for on-the-go crafting too..especially for diecuts like the leaves and flowers I used on this card.


Thanks for stopping by today...enjoy the hop and have a great one!
