As already mentioned, this make was made with Sun Chaser. And to start this little project off I began by gathering patterns in all the pinks that this collection provides. Yet another monochromatic type make.

And with that a little tip for all you wonderful crafting humans:
If a color or a scheme works for you, then make that with all your heart, mind and soul. I say this because recently I found myself in the midst of a craft forcing some different colors on myself. It just was not happening. Now granted, nothing wrong with branching out and trying a new to you way of making. But if it is not working, if you are not feelin’ it, then pass on it. Come back to that another time.

And so the pinks have it for this project. I love embracing what works for us in the craft room.
Another thing that works for me so much is an interactive touch. This Pocket Book is made up of — well — pockets. Surprised you there, didn’t I? A nested pocket die came into play here. Each pocket is it’s own pattern. Each pocket layers a top the next one. Each pocket gets a little bigger than the last. And who isn’t here for all those layers and embellishments and pattern?

This can be made using a nested pocket die. Or — make your own pocket and simply increasing the size up a little. With all things papery, the possibilities are vast. As it was, I was not really sure where this project was going when I started it, but I sure do like where it ended up.

And therein lies the beauty of embracing our makes and making them what we want them to be. No performing for someone else. Making for you! Making what you love. What a beautiful hobby this is.

I hope you are inspired to pull out from your stash your favorite colors and patterns. After all, this is a no-hoarding zone. And then make something for you. Something you know you will love. No comparison. Just happiness in the making.

You can find Heidi Swapp Sun Chaser at JoAnn Stores.
