Believe it or not, this month's pocket letter was a bit of a challenge for me. I guess because I have very little in the way of mail-themed diecuts. After choosing my script paper I inked the edges and then sprayed with Tim Holtz Distress Mica Spray in Antique Bronze.
As I was working on pockets 6 through 9, I decided to find and print out images online starting with the Pony Express because that was pretty much the first delivery service. I've had the hot air balloon sticker from the Dollar Store in my stash for ages and thought it was a cute one to add. Vintage lace underneath that was from my Mom's stash. Next, the Air Mail airplanes. The lower image in pocket 3 is a copy of an original airmail plane I found. In pocket 4 the envelope and letter are 49 & Market Sweet Reflections Laser Cuts and I wrote a short note to my swap partner, Kristine! Mint lace underneath from Laura. In pocket 5 these are images of real vintage catalogs that I thought were so pretty. In pocket 6 I used my stamp die from Amazon cutting out a piece of Stamperia's Shabby Rose paper and then stamped on it. The lace underneath is from Laura. Pocket 7 - I used Stamperia's Garden (the bird image) and under that is from Prima Nature Garden. The postcard in pocket 9 is Stamperia Shabby Rose. The stamps I used in pockets 7 and 9 were from Marci.
Lace on the border is from Walmart. Bulb pins from Jessica. In the charm I fussy cut a stamp from Stamperia's Garden, glued it in and then used Glossy Accents to fill it in. Beads from my stash. Thank you to all my friends for the goodies I used here.
Thank you all for visiting my gallery! I've added close-ups of each row.
