Thankful Cards

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2nd Thursday of September! It's Java Jen from JAVA JEN CREATIONS here taking my monthly turn to share with everyone here and over at CRICUT IS CLOSE TO MY HEART!  Thank you again, Sheila, for this opportunity!

Today I chose to make a great pocket and tags combo that is on the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. If you don't already have a CTMH consultant that you purchase from, you are welcome to click HERE to visit my site and place an order for this amazing cartridge and so many other goodies!

Here is my finished project:

You can find this pocket and tags on page 25 of the cartridge booklet.

To make this project the size that will work with the coordinating stamp sets, you need to size the pocket at 7.5"H.  Adhere a wide strip of ribbon around the pocket after it is assembled, leaving the seam in the front. It gets covered up with a label.

Cut the tags at 3.5"H and if you have the coordinating stamp set - stamp the borders on them. This stamp set is S1109 which was the September 2011 SOTM called Limited Edition.

The sentiment stamps are from ABOVE RUBIES STUDIO.  I added some ribbon to make the tags pop! :-)

Next, make the label for the front. The label and layer is found on page 55 of the cartridge booklet. it is cut at 1.25"H.  I stamped it with a stamp from the Limited Edition set.

Adhere the label with pop dots on top of the ribbon on the front.

Time to put it all together!

 I'm thinking this will make a great gift for someone who needs an encouraging word or two or three!

Thanks for stopping by today!
