The Pocket Letter Craze...

Hello:  I have been making Pocket Letters like crazy :)  I signed up for a group called, "Pocket Letter Pals on Facebook and I was in awe, seeing all the lovely creations. Just using your bits of left over paper and embellishments can create a lovely Pocket Letter for a Pen Pal.  I for one have sent about 10 to Pen Pals internationally.  Take a look and see.  Description down below.

This is a Beach Theme:  I used some vibrant summer papers that I had left over from a Beach layout that I created.  I used some of my stickers and embellishments that I had in my scrap stash for a while. This one went off to California :)

Here's a close up of the stamp that I inserted into one of the pockets.  This is a stamp by Susana Stamps (link below). I chalked the background sky and I used Liquid Glass by Close to My Heart for the water effect.  It is very sparkly.

The object of a Pocket Letter is to design the 9 pockets of a baseball/hockey card sleeve and send goodies to your partner. A Pen Pal letter is sent to let your partner know a little about you. Here I inserted some stickers, die cuts, ribbon and a tea bag for my partner.  I also created a little card with some points about myself.  Now it's off in the mail to California and I await a letter in return.

I have enjoyed making these for random Pen Pals around the world.  Here are a few more of the ones that I sent out this week.  Thanks for peeking in....
