Pocket Letters

In a effort to keep the mojo flowing I've been playing along in a little 'mail art' project called Pocket letters. You can see heaps of ideas of how people participate on good ol' Google, just pop what are Pocket Letters in the search bar and discover a new way of sending pen pal snail mail. There's also some great inspiration on Pinterest

Basically - Pocket letters are pen pal letters in pocket format. You fill the pockets of a 9 pocket page or card protector, like for ATC's or baseball cards etc and send it to someone who wants to swap or to an existing pen pal.

Scrapping Clearly have a pocket letter swap happening every month and I've really enjoy playing along.

The theme was 'Things with Wings' although in my rush to get mine done I failed to notice there was a theme involved. Luckily I had used some butterflies on the set ;) 

 I actually had time to do a little mail art on the envelopes, been a while since I did that.

It was so nice to get my return swap from Janelle. It was like getting a pressie in my mail box. 

Until Next time
Happy Creating

And the sketch

Yep,,, call the doctor, she did another layout this week ;)

I managed to do the Scrapping Clearly sketch challenge as well this week.
This layout may well have ended up in the bin. I really had to push myself forward to 'just keep going', it's a little like a Nanna's apple pie,,,, layer upon, layer, upon layer. 
I'm glad I persevered. And the fact that, that was the only piece of black card in da house, helped. 
The photo was taken at Erin's wedding I love how this photo worked out, it's one of my favourites and the layout will go in the album I'm compiling of the day.

Anyhoo, here's the Sketch
Come play along, there's still time.

And here's my take on it.

Picture Perfect
Other products used - Papers by- Websters, Cristina Re, (others unknown. Bazzill card. Tim Holtz crackle paint & stamps, gold embossing powder, seed beads, Treasure gold, Jo Sonja paint, glitter gel pen. 


Hope you're getting some creative time for yourself.
Until next time.
