This is the pocket letter I made for Robin for this month's swap hosted by Rebecca. I chose the Shabby Chic theme.
Robin said when she received this, several of the pockets were out of it and her name and a butterfly were completely off the side. I had it all wrapped and taped in tissue paper, padded with a few extras I sent, in a padded envelope and wrote on the envelope Please Do Not Bend. The only way any of those pockets got out of their pocket pages was to literally shake it up and down or fold it back and forth. She also said there was a hole in the middle of the envelope!! I glued her name and those butterflies on the side down with reliable glue!!! Okay, rant over!!
I used Paper Studio's Blanc Boutique for the bottom of the pockets and Stamperia Dream on top of that.
Pocket 1 - I stamped the frame using Hero Arts Clings Floral Frames using TH Broken China and clear embossing powder, Reneabouquets Cherub, clothespin embellie from Donna (Bonprof).
Pocket 2 - Key from Aliexpress, butterflies (Reneabouquets) from Donna, glitter glass from now closed Gone Artsy.
Pocket 3 - Prima stencil using Finnabair white crackle texture paste, metal butterfly from Brandy Johnson (FB swap partner) and I used liquid pearls to color it up and beautiful beads from Reneabouquets, as well as BBoard flourish.
Pocket 4 - Stamp embossed Gabi's Postcard from Paris (49 and Market), Teal Chunky Glitter Glass (Reneabouquets) from Carri (Caletts), lace from Melissa (Stackhouse) and pendant from Walmart
Pocket 5 - An old house key I altered
Pocket 6 - Frame I painted using Ranger Patina Sandstone (love that look), button from Walmart and prills from Carri, lace from Gone Artsy
