Have you heard of pocket letters?
I have been seeing a few posts about them and was curious.
So I googled it and wow!
Jeanette Lane is a blogger and she created pocket letters as a way to send fun mail to a pen pal.
You take a 9 pocket trading card protector and fill each pocket and send the whole thing to your pen pal. So much fun!
Of course then I went to Pinterest and oh my!
minutes hours later I had a board filled with great ideas from so many talented ladies out there!
My friend Deb who blogs at Garage Sale Gal hosted a Fall themed pocket letter swap. I signed up and was partnered with Stephanie of The Enchanting Rose. We exchanged some information and got to work. Stephanie and I both decided to use the softer shades of Fall.
It was the first pocket letter for both of us so it took the pressure off to be perfect! I must say I had so much fun!
My page came wrapped in this fabric so I KNEW I was going to love it and I do!!
Stephanie got me on the first try!
She said after reading my blog she knew I would love a Paris/Fall theme!
Each pocket was filled with goodies!
Things to craft with, tags and
a wonderful sachet made out of the Paris fabric
I love the colors and the beautiful things she made
She used all these gorgeous papers on the back side.
I love everything about it,
but the best thing was making a new blogging friend!
Stephanie will blog about my pocket letter soon but I will share a couple of photos of what I made her here.
As you can see we went with the same colors
I filled the center pocket with a little rose handkerchief since she told me Roses were her favorite flower. I must say I had so much fun!
I also included lots of crafting goodies, stickers and a tea bag. I was so happy with my first attempt at a pocket letter that I have already agreed to a couple of more swaps!! I have one ready to mail to my Canada friend Jill at A Little Bit of Everything.
I can't share it with you yet since I want it to be a surprise for Jill.
If any of you would like to exchange a pocket letter, let me know! It's fun!
Wishing you JOY,
