Pockets and Tags from 6×6 paper, Vintage Christmas, Sympathy, and a Get Well card

It’s Tuesday, so I’m sharing my post with you and the gang at the Altered Book Lover. My drink of choice this week is a Coffee to go from Roast Riders in Virginia Beach.

Hot coffee with almond milk to go from Roast Rider. Still cold and rainy.

I made two pockets and tags out of 6 x 6 paper for a swap partner on Swap-bot. You can watch the video that inspired this super easy craft HERE. My partner said she’s working on a Shabby Chic Christmas and a vintage Christmas junk journal, so I thought I would make them to go with her theme. I used a vintage Christmas card front for the shabby pocket and vintage style paper for the other.

It’s been over a month since I posted! I had to make two sympathy cards this past month, one for the wife of an amazing 90 year old husband; and the other for the mother of a 27 year old man. Both cards were challenging to create and write. I used die cuts from Hobby Lobby The Paper Studio, and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.

I also made a card for a sweet friend who took a fall and broke her wrist and had to have surgery . I never knew geraniums stood for “True Friendship”. Another good reason to give a plant to someone you love.

And wisdom, scripture, or thoughts to ponder:

Enjoy your week and Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I started paper crafting in 1995 when I first tried embossing with powder, I was so excited and couldn't believe it was so easy to make something so beautiful. Creativeseconds was started as a way of selling secondhand craft supplies and cards on Ebay and Etsy. You will find creative cards, tags, and paper crafting projects here as well as craft room organizational ideas. Follow along with me and comments are welcomed and appreciated.

  2. I enjoyed looking at the cards you created. I like the idea of the pocket card with the lined insert. Sympathy cards are the hardest for me to make. Yours are lovely.

  3. Beautiful cards and pages you made. I didn’t know that geraniums represented friendship, I thought that was just yellow roses so that was a fun fact to learn. Happy T Day

  4. What an amazing amount of cards and pockets you created, Karen. I’m in awe. I’m so sorry for your loss and how hard it must have been to have made them. They are truly beautiful cards, though. I also LOVE the pockets. The use of the index card was genius. And your card for your injured friend is truly lovely. I love that quote by Dickens, too.

    Your coffee sounds great. It must be a local store because I’ve never heard of it. Thanks for sharing your incredible cards and your coffee with us for T this Tuesday, dear friend. So glad to see you back sharing T time with us.

  7. I’m so sorry you needed these sympathy cards Karen. Sending hugs to you. They are both absolutely beautiful and the sentiment is a very comforting one. I love the card you made for your friend too and loved reading about the meaning of geraniums. I shall be gifting some this summer to say thank you to some lovely friends I think! Your journal pockets are great too – and wouldn’t they make fabulous cards! You have inspired me Karen! Vicky x
