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. 

LLAMAS!!!

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

Hoopmail

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).
