Craft It Halloween 2K16: My First Pocket Letters
Hello dearest Dreamers!
Here with another Craft It Halloween 2K16 post. Today is all about pocket letters!
As I've mentioned in my videos and other posts, I am part of Serena Bee's October Daily Inspiration Facebook group, which makes my little heart happy! Last year I was introduced to Pocket Letters but was unable to find the right supplies while I was in Germany, so I just obsessed over everyone's videos and photos.
This year, since I am back in the states and have easy access to a Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and A.C. Moore, I figured that I would give it a try. So far I have made two separate pocket letters to send out to my swap partners.
I created a video on my first pocket letter, which you can watch below.
As I mentioned in the video, that handmade pumpkin card is my favorite card!!! I used Serena's October Nights collectionthat she released this year. She hand designed all of these cards, and since they are digital cards, you can print them as many times as you want (which I have been).
Since I am using a 6X8 album for my October Daily this year, when I made this pocket letter, the only sheet protectors I had were 6X8, so that is what I used. It is small, but I actually kind of like how this one turned out.
My second pocket letter was made last night! I finally went out and got the right sized sheet protectors from Walmart (they are baseball card protectors). They are smaller then 3X4 (I think they are like 2X3) so you have to make your own cards, and I really loved how this how PL turned out! So much so that I need to duplicate it so I can keep one!
Don't you just love it? Because I absolutely love it!!!
I bought the DCVW paper pack from Joanne's called Spooky Night Mini Stack and cut out my cards from there. It's a double sided paper pack, so I only used like 4 actual sheets of paper (it's 6x6). Some of the ephemera is from K&Company that I had from my stash (and I actually just ordered more because I love it so much) and the other ephemera is from Art C (Halloween ephemera collage kit).
Some of the paper is gold foiled, which usually I don't like but I actually really like this paper pad.
So what do you guys think?
Do you like them?
