Safari so goody!

Hi crafty people and happy weekend to you all!  I thought I would share a pocket letter I made recently for some happy mail.  I know it’s arrived safe and sound so I can share it now.  I hadn’t made a pocket letter for ages and I really enjoyed making it.  This is the front of the pockets….


….. and the back with some crafty goodies!


I hope you liked my pocket letter.  Thanks so much for visiting the blog, I hope to see you again soon.

Wicked Wednesday - Halloween projects

Wicked Wednesday- Spooky pocket letters!

Hi crafty people, welcome back to another Wicked Wednesday!  This week’s spooky projects are some Halloween themed pocket letters that I made for swapping last year.  The first one I made a haunted house by using all 9 pockets as part of one focal image.  I used a brick embossing folder for the house front and a fence die to make the railings in front of the house.  The second photo is the back just to give an idea of some of the goodies you can fit into a pocket letter.  I’ve included a short letter, heart embellishments, printed ephemera, a little notebook I made with patterned paper, a homemade spider paperclip, some post its and some chocolates and a tea bag!

The second one I’m sharing today was a “spooky summer” theme!  This time I made individual pockets and used a selection of patterned papers, some stickers and die cut embellishments.  The papers are a mix of Halloween and tropical summer themes.  The cutting dies were all from Tattered Lace and I think they are so cute.  I particularly like the Mummy with his bandages hanging off his hands.  I’m sure these dies will show up again very soon!

Alice in Wonderland pocket letter

Happy hump day crafty people!  Hope your week is going to plan.  Today I thought I would share a quick post of a pocket letter I made a wee while ago.  This is the front and the back view.


I used a combination of stamps, stickers, stencils and some images I downloaded and printed off. For the back I made some little pockets for all of the goodies to go into and I really liked the effect.

I hope you like my pocket letter.  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

Butterfly pocket letter

Today I thought I would share a pocket letter I made a few weeks ago for a crafty swap via a Facebook group.  I used a combination of printed papers as well as some I decorated myself using heat embossed stamps, distress inks, stencils and inked embossing folders.  I decorated the pockets with some butterfly die cuts, sentiments and coloured stamped butterflies.


And on the reverse some goodies for my swap partner.  This time I included some paper ephemera, die cuts, stickers, papers, embellishments, washi samples and a mini notebook I made as well as a short letter.


I hope you enjoyed seeing my pocket letter and I’d love to hear about your crafty swaps.  Thanks for stopping by.
