Pocket Letter Exchange With Me

I am a HUGE Pocket Letter fan. I love that one not only is letter writing/sharing, but it’s also a way to share art work. Who doesn’t like to receive letters and who doesn’t like art?
Pocket letters comprise of a 9-pocket card protector  and filling each pocket front with art (e.g. a piece of paper that fits in the pocket that is decorated – usually with more than just stickers). And the back of each pocket should have a gift (stickers, a tea bag, candy, etc. Get creative with it!). And one pocket should have a letter. An ACTUAL letter. Not a small paragraph. The idea is to actually correspond with someone.
I prefer senders choice, as one should be inspired to do whatever they want. One of the most difficult pocket letters I ever created was a butterfly pocket letter that someone requested. And I am *so* not a butterfly kind of lady and I struggled and you know what, it came out pretty great. But the struggle was real! I would have rather made whatever tickled my fancy.

Newer Pocket Letters and a MINI pocket letter

Butterflies. I really struggled with this because I have never been a butterfly kind of girl. However, I made it work. And I added a bee to the top left PL.

aughhh! The lighting is so BAD I forgot to take a photo later on. Whoopsadaisy!

I love LOVE LOVE the Sassy Club stickers (Sandra, you are a ROCK STAR!!) and I used the stickers to help with this theme. I love the bottom middle one that has a brick wall and a clear sticker with "She's a wild flower". It reminded me of  graffiti. 

I really enjoyed making this pocket letter and incorporating stickers from Mommy Lhey

I feel like sometimes all I make is llama pocket letters and guess what? I LOVE IT! They are so cute!!! I really want a alpaca/llama birthday

Who did I send this to cause I love it. I made a bunch of PLs at the same time. Papers, layers, and stickers for the most part but I should have done more here

I love this one

I sent this to one of my favorite PL friends, Gracie

This Monster PL went overseas.

This one was so much fun to create. I love the twine and gold thread in the middle right pocket

I used my brand new WRM Happy Stitch with this one. I had so much fun!!!!!

I am still upset I left that bottom middle blank! I had a quote I wanted to put in there!

Parts of this one I like and dislike It was a learning experience. Sorry if I sent it to you. I would be happy to try again. 


The mini. This was so much fun and the conversation on my Instagram brought in about 140 more people to my IG. Cool! 


So I tried my hand at Hoopmail. I didn't get anything in return, and that sucked, but I get that people get busy. If nothing else me trying to make pretty hoops was really fun. I'd like to give it a second go with more of a whatever type theme rather than a holiday (Valentines Day).
