For my project I thought I would share my Secret Release project that I created for the September New Release for Crafty Sentiments Designs. I have had quite a few people ask if we will be getting the new releases in the store and the answer is YES! I do plan on getting ALL of the Crafty Sentiments Designs images that we can carry in the store, listed as a Preorder. That way we make sure we are ordering the customer requests first because there have been quite a few new ones since our last order! So look for those this week!

I was given the super cute Space Walking image for my project. Now this probably dates me, but just remember I am 29 :) ... when I was little one of my favorite candy treats to get when Grandpa took us to the store was Pop Rocks. When I saw this image I thought it would be cute to make a little Pop Rocks Wallet! Pop Rocks are getting harder to find now, but you can still find then at convenience stores and sometimes around the holidays in the bigger stores.

I colored my image with Copic markers. I did the background around my image by just doing dots in different shades because I wanted it to look like they were floating in space. The papers that I used are from Graphic 45 which we will be getting in the store soon :)

If you are wondering how I created my Pop Rocks Wallet here is a tutorial for you...

To create the wallet:
Take an 8.5” x 5.5” piece of cardstock
Along the 8.5” side – Score at 3 3/16” and 6 3/8”
Take Designer paper to Decorate if you wish…
Your Designer Paper to cover the front will be – 3 1/8” x 5 3/8”
                                   to cover the back cover – 2 7/8” x 5 3/8”
                                   For the Inside Flap Piece – 2” x 5 3/8”
You will want to place your Designer Paper on the Inside Flap FIRST, then place your two Brads to hold the flap shut, and then place your back cover Designer Paper on. That way the back sides of the brads are covered.
To Create the Belly Band:
Take an 8” long piece of cardstock or Designer Paper and score at  2 5/16” on each end
Fold around and secure. You can mount your image to the Belly Band.

Be sure to check out what the other Designers have for you today ! Don't forget to leave comments on all the blogs for the most chances to win to be in our drawing on October 6th!! Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for stopping by!


Have a great day!
