7 pocket file with base

 I had a pocket file I turned into a dimension pocket approx., 1/2", then created a base for them, added some of my background design paper and a little decorative piece for the base.  I cut two of the pockets front and back in a cream, the same for the base and then the other 5 pockets in black.  The decorative background is on the front and back of each pocket
 full frontal view, you are able to see the little blue glass feet on the bottom of the base.

overhead view of the boxes, great for messages, coupons, etc.   Design created with my Silhouette Cameo, gotta love the Cameo.  
Hugs and Happy Memorial Weekend to everyone, we went to the National Cemetery outside of Dixon this morning, what a beautiful job they have done.  Be safe and celebrate, hugs

wine cork key ring

Oh Boy, these are fun.  I am putting together a birthday pressie for friend and throughout the year we have several wine tasting get togethers.  Open a bottle and settle in to fix the woes of the world, lol. This is one of my favorites and we share this wine a lot in the hotter weather.  So took one our corks and created this key ring for her pressie box.  We are in delightful mid 70s and it definitely is a gorgeous spring day here.  Hope yours is lovely also.

Bunny Birthday Tag

I used some new product and technique for this tag, will have to play more with it, cause I really liked it.  I used one of my Mint Stamps for the tag first on buff card cover first, I then applied a layer of Golden Gel Medium "Matt" and let it dry completely.  Then I wrote in the mo., day., and because with a black gel pen.  When that was all done I began rubbing in color with the Tim Holtz "Distress Crayons".  I love the way the gel medium took the color.  I added the bunny with cotton tail, photo corners and black background and added some black and white baker's twine - done.

This is just for fun, spring has arrived in our back yard with color and vibrancy.  The blooms are huge as a result of our El Nino rain and now that it is warming up, the cat is in heaven.  He literally throws himself to the pavement belly up and purrs with delight.  He is always an entertainer but the last couple of weeks, he is a Clown.  We have a screen on the patio and the wind was blowing it back and forth causing the light to move and wiggle, it caught his attention and he couldn't quit bear to get up and pursue it but batted at it from his position on his back, LOL.  Have a great week.
