Pink And Kraft Vintage...
I received my first Pocket Letter from a dear friend, Elaine. If you need to know details about Pocket Letters, check out Janette Lane's Blog at: Blog
If you want to see Elaine's beautiful, cheerful Pocket Letter that she sent me, you can see it here
It took me one crafty session to knock this out. I think I had to mentally get into the gear of this project, but I could see that you could do some of the steps separately before hand. For instance. You could definitely cut your "background" papers in a separate session. That would eliminate quite a bit of time with that one step. Arrrgghh. I'm a terrible cutter. But it is rather simple, cutting 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 inch rectangles. Elaine sent me a cute little "cover" card----where did you get this cute thing , Elaine? I had some large tags which were about the same size, so I just used one of these. I used the pink bling factor...
This is the front of my Pocket Letter...my theme (because my, oh my, you MUST have a theme for these Pocket Letters!)"Faith , Hope and Love" in the style of Vintage, or shabby chic.
This is the BACK of my Pocket Letter. Hmmm....looks a bit bare, doesn't it. ?
I went ahead and added some items that were not glued down so that she could use them in future projects. Elaine is the "Queen of Crafts" so I know she will know exactly what to do with these items!
This little pocket holds a folded up letter for Elaine.
All tucked away nicely in a business-sized envelope...but has to be sent as a parcel when you have lots of goodies in it. But still, it is not too expensive and I think rather worth it , don't you?
To carry the vintage style through I had to get madam Victorian boot wax stamp out and finish the job.
