Planner Pocket step 1 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThis is taking one of those My Crush Everyday Life Pages Z3210 and cutting it in half.  Then Making a tick mark at 2″ from bottom on short side and 3 1/4″ along the top long side. Planner Pocket Step 2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comI then used those two tick marks and put on my score board.  I scored a straight line between those tick marks. Planner Pocket Step 3 ~ CatScrapbooking.com

I used the new Limeade Washi Tape Z3198, the pink washi to be exact to attach the two halves to form the pocket. ****UPDATE ****** I recommend using a wider Washi tape as the seam does pop up a bit with the thin washi.Planner Pocket Step 4 ~ CatScrapbooking.comFront view.

Planner Pocket Step 5 ~ CatScrapbooking.comUsing Score tape I ran a strip along the bottom of each pocket.  This will be adhered to the pocket page. Planner Pocket Step 6 ~ CatScrapbooking.comNow are you ready to see those adorable critters??  Well I saw on Facebook and Instagram an adorable critter clip by Michele Rowley.  When I saw here I knew I needed to make some of these and here they are.

I made the wolf pup using a SVG file with my Silhouette.  The fox is cut with my Cricut Explore subscription. I have one more I am considering making ~ a moose.  Then my favorite wild critters will all be represented :-).

Happy Crafting!

Crush it!

I have to admit I am intrigued by the My Crush books.  I have seen the smash books in the craft stores and contemplated purchasing them but I just was not sure where to begin.  Well now Close to My Heart has come out with two awesome My Crush books – Modville and Bluebird.  I can’t wait to get mine and give it a try.

Here is a great video which will help give you an overview of what a My Crush book is.
