Flipbook with old craft envelopes

Hi everyone !

After having watched a few tutorials on YouTube about how to make a flipbook, I decided to give it a first try myself.

I knew I had some very old craft envelopes somewhere around, that I don't like to use any longer for sending mail to my pals, because they are much too light and tear too easily ...

So, I decided to create my first flip book with them and below you can see the finished result.







You can also have a look at my Youtube video here, but you will have to forgive me my odd English accent and my trembling voice 😉 

Thanks for having visited my blog and hope to see you around !

Love & hugs,
Coco Mojo

Mini postcards

Hello again 😄

Here is another post from me ... I will try to be as regular as I can, but please bear with me as I am trying to get organized 😄. For now I will be sharing pictures mostly.

I plan to do more videos too ... I just have to figure out a better way of how to record them with my "non-professional" equipment 😉. I will probably find more tricks to do craft recordings as I go along ...

Today I would like to share my newly made mini post-cards, with a quote on them that I personally like a lot, because it is so true !

"Writing is a way to taste life twice, in the moment and in retrospect"

I have found that quote online this weekend and I instantly knew that I would like to use it on some cards !!!

And because I still had some room next to the little cards, I also printed a bookmark on the same page :)



Thanks for having stopped by and hope to see you around !

Love & hugs,

Personalized postcards

And here's another post from me already !! I seem to be on a roll lately ... LOL !

After the greeting cards I've made over in the weekend, I decided I wanted to create some personalized postcards as well !

I don't know about you, but for me, it is kind of hard to find postcards online or in shops that really express what I want to say or send to my friends. The ones I've made so far are general ones that can be used for multiple occasions, but I hope and plan to make more in the future 😄.

Below are some samples of what I have created so far :




I really wonder what you think of them and which one is your personal favorite ?

And which quote would you like to have on your postcards ?

As always, comments and feedback on my posts are very much appreciated ❤️

Thanks for looking and have a lovely day !

Love & hugs,
xoxo

Thank you & Greeting cards

After having invested quite a lot of time in creating stickers to use on my envelopes and writing paper, I felt it was time for something else ...

Greeting cards was what I had in mind. A YouTube movie by Create the Cut had inspired me to make some of my own. For most of my designs I am using vector graphics by freepik.com. They have a huge selection to choose from and besides vectors, they also offer lots of photographs and PSD downloads. On top of that, the graphics are free for personal and commercial use ❤️.

This is what I have created today :



Greeting Cards



They are A6 in size, so they fit perfectly into a regular C6 envelope 😄

I can't wait to enclose some in my letters ! The inside leaves plenty of room to write a personal message to my friends !


Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again ! 

Comments and feedback are always very much appreciated ❤️

Love & hugs,

Introduction

Today is pretty exciting ...

I am about to write the very first post on my brand new blog !

For starters, I am going to introduce myself briefly :) - I am a snail mail addict and I enjoy creating items (stickers, tags, cards, ...) that I can enclose in my outgoing mail or that I can use to personalize my envelopes and other projects. I also love to learn more about how to create my own writing paper in several graphic software applications! Sending and receiving pieces of art gives me so much joy !! I will definitely try my best to send out even more creative mail from now on !

My nickname when I was still a student was "Coco" and one of my pals came up with the brilliant idea of using "Coco Mojo" as an alias for my creative projects.

My intention is to share all things that inspire me - often related to sending and receiving snail mail - and to showcase some of my cards, stickers and designs with my readers. I hope I will be able to inspire you as well !

Maybe a few freebies and giveaways will follow later, so stay tuned for more :)

Love & hugs,
Coco Mojo
