Pocket letter swap

Some of my friends from the Croppers Delight Scrapbooking group will be meeting at the Scrapbook Expo convention this weekend and we decided to do a Pocket Letter exchange.  We picked one person in the group and was required to make 2 pocket letters for that one person.  I also made one for each of the other girls for a total of 9.  These are 7 that I made for the other girls.

I know they all like butterflies so I purchased this paper from Michaels, then I added Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Tutti Fruitti with a grid type of layout.

This was my inspiration for the colors for these pocket letters.

I added the Prima Marketing Dolls stamp - currently 'undressed'

These are mini bracelet or necklace charms that I wanted to add to the front of the pocket letters

here are the 7 maids in a row all dazzeled up with glimmer mist, glossy accents, Stickles

I wanted to add a 3D effect to the back side as well so I punched out butterflies and added them diagonally

This is the completed front page of the pocket letter.  I also added a tassel that they can remove and add to their key chains or purse if they want to.

Here is the back page filled with goodies.  I have some Teresa Collins wood letters in the middle that I left uncolored as well so they can fancy it up if they'd like to.  I added paper clips in shapes of hearts, arrows and some have ribbon on them.  I also have wood shapes that are half colored with chalk and posts it flags that everyone can use at some point.

My latest addiction....Planners

Recently I ordered Marion Smiths planner because I loved the teal color with gold. It can be used all year long in my opinion. So I started researching what people do with their planners and how they organize them and fell in love with a few styles I found on Pinterest and Facebook. Paper and Glam; The Planner Society and The Reset Girl. They really have fab styles and are very creative!!

Here is my first monthly kit from the Planner Society
