Dec 2015 Pocket Letter Creations

Hello lovelies!  I hope you all had a wonderful winter break, and a fabulous 2016 so far!

I wanted to share 2 Pocket Letters I made and sent out in December 2015.  Both were creating using the Crystal Frost paper pad by Craft Smith, which I purchased at Michael’s.

I love this collection so much! I pulled out my Photo Sleeve Fuse Tool and made the confetti pockets on each one.  I also used my Distress Tim Holtz Minis Inks and Mini Ink Blending Tool-1″ Round, Ranger Stickles, a Martha Stewart Snowflake Punch, and lots of other little goodies I had in my stash.  I forgot how much I enjoy making these!

My plan is to do a purge/reorganization of my craft room and then I can freely start creating again!  In the meantime I plan to post some layouts I did at a crop back in October.

Looking forward to getting crafty with you this year!

A Harry Potter Pocket Letter

Good Evening everyone!

I recently did a swap with a gal from South Carolina for a Harry Potter themed Pocket Letter.  As soon as I receive her letter, I will make a post about it, but in the meantime I will share what I created for her.IMG_3556

I tried my hand at making some fancy paperclips on this one, and I think they turned out really well!  I printed them off with my laser printer, cut them out, and then glued them to some clips I got at Walmart.

I also included some of my favourite quotes:

and made a tiny, fold-able Maurader’s Map!

OH!  And a tiny notebook with my swap partner’s name on it (I blurred it out for these pics, for her privacy)

On the Slytherin panel I included a tiny map of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter 🙂

IMG_3563I loved including all the House colours in this, with matching gems too:

Here is the back.  I made a Flying Key, included some of my favourite tea, some star-themed sticky notes, some embellies (I made a small Hogwart’s Express ticket, and a few charms including a Deathly Hallows charm!), my contact info, a bunch of small HP images for her to colour and use on a future project, some washi tape, the small notebook, and a small letter rolled up and tied with gold string.

I really enjoyed making this letter, I had so many different ideas, but could only fit so many in one letter, so I’m sure I will have to make some more Harry Potter themed letters in the future!

Let me know what you think!  Have you made a Harry Potter letter?  I’d love to see pics!

Pocket Letters

Recently I was introduced to Pocket Letter Pals by a friend of mine.  Basically it’s a fun way to send someone a letter.  You get one of those plastic sheets that hold trading cards, and each little pocket is decorated, and there’s a little treat inside. There is a great group on Facebook that helps you find trading partners and/or get inspiration for your own creations.

The first one I attempted was at a monthly crafty night I’m part of.  I chose to do a nature theme and use a much neglected paper pad I had in my stash.

This letter is on it’s way to a gal in North Carolina.  It included lots of fun treats:  A wooden moose tag, wooden embellies, a “Five things about me” note, 3 little stamped images of birds for her to colour and use on her own creations, washi tape, metal charms. ribbon. my favourite Tazo Tea, and some cute post-it notes.

The second letter I did was a tea theme:

This one is on it’s way to New Jersey.  I included: “Five things about me”, washi tape, a Tazo Zen tea with a cute gold bobbypin, gold tea charms, a Twinnings Ginger Lemon tea, butterfly post-its, 2 pockets contain 6 monthly calendars each with birthstones, and the last one contains tea images for her to colour in and use on projects.

I am eagerly awaiting replies in the mail, and I’ll make sure to post them when they arrive.

Have you made a pocket letter yet?  I’d love to see your projects!  Please post links to your creations in the comments section!
