Peachy Challenge 01 :: Pockets!

If you are looking for the My Creative Time January release BLOG HOP, click HERE!

The Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog is hosting the first of the new and improved challenges! This weeks challenge is to create a project with a pocket! Whether it folds, tucks, or hides a treat, pockets are a fun way to add something extra!

They will be awarding "TOP PEACH" to the player who uses their Peachy Keen Stamps this week and TWO runners up will receive a spiffy badge to display on their blog as well!

You don't have to use Peachy Keen stamps to play along, but you do have to use them in order to win the prize! 

Here are the guidelines:

Design must be new, created specifically for this challenge.
Project must meet the challenge outline - show off those pockets!
Link up by January 25 at 11:59 pm CDT.

So what are you waiting for? Link up those projects for a chance to play along and win! :)

For my project I chose to use my PKS Stamp of the Month AND Peachy Picks kits! These kits are fabulous! The Peachy Picks has some great color combos and embellishments that coordinate perfectly. The Stamp of the Month is a full 8 1/2x11 sheet of PKS stamps! :) If you want more info on these clubs, click HERE.

I found this card on Split Coast Stampers a long time ago, wrote down the instructions and then never got around to making it, so I don't actually have the link. It is super simple to make and I love the little pocket that it adds!

I used PaperTrey Ink Kraft and Vintage Cream in addition to the papers in the Peachy Picks. The 6x6 paper pack is the My Mind's Eye Love Me stack. I used a Fiskars border punch on the kraft paper that wraps around the card. The ribbon is Vintage Cream from PaperTrey Ink.

For my little angel, I stamped her on the blending paper that PKS sells and then on some pearl paper and brown paper. Then I paper-pieced her together. I colored her with my Copics and on the halo, I added some Martha Stewart Glitter. And of course some glossy accents on those little eyes!
