Pocket Letters: Notes of Encouragements

I am in love in making and sending pocket letters to my new friends I met at the Pocket Letter Pals Network 🙂

Have you ever heard about Pocket Letters? It is a new trend swaping trading card pocket pages with friends that you fill each pocket with 2.5″ x 3.4″ cards (standard trading card size) that you decorate and embellish them, plus on the back of the pocket, you can fill it with extra goodies that you wanna share and bless your swap friends. If you wanna know more about this Pocket Letter Pals Network, you can read all about it and watch the introduction video here from Janette Lane (founder and creater of the nextwork).

This is a new paper crafting project for me but it is just fun creating these little cards for friends 🙂 And today I wanna share with you a page a made for a new friend I met on the network at Newbie Swap Forum. She sent me a beautiful, encouraging pocket letters and some goodies with it. So lovely!

Here the page I made for her…

I used papets from Studio Calico 6×6 pad collection that I found at TJ Maxx. I love the papers becuase they are thick enough to make these little note cards for the pockets. And love the natural color combo, too 🙂

Row 1: I made them using the Bible Journaling stamp set from Neat and Tangled. Embellished them with die cuts from Craftin Desert Diva and Martha Stewart butterfly punches. I watercolored the diecut tag and heart. And I heat embossed all the sentiments with mixed embossing powder. Yes, I mixed my Gold Embossing Powder with Clear Glitter Embossing Powder, and the the second mix is White Embossing Powder with Clear Glitter Embossing Powder.

Row 2: I used the bible journaling stamp set from Illustrated Faith that I got from Big Picture Classes store. I heat embossed the sentiment on vellum paper with Black Glitter Embossing Powder and added some extra gems, enamel stars and paper doily to embelish these cards.

Row 3: I used the Be The Light stamp set from Latina Crafter – Be A Blessing collection. I did some heat embossing and watercolor resist on them using Gelattos. I embelished them with some gems, paper doily and gold thread.

And I added some goodies at the back of each pocket for her.

Wrap it with big paper doily and secure it with some baker’s twine. It is ready to go 🙂
