Pink moos make my heart happy!

Hello, hello!  Hope you are having a nice day! I have another pocket letter to share with you!  I think this may be my all time most favorite pocket letter to date!  I absolutely loved making this one and I hope my sweet new pal enjoys it!  Take a look-see!

Tons of pink moos!!

I added the big one to the outside with some pop dots!

Just look at that sweet pink moo!!

Lots of pink polka dots too!  Did I mention how much fun I had making this little guy?!

A moo shaker pocket!

Cows with cupcakes are a beautiful thing!

This sweet face almost did me in! LOL

More mooooo!

Tag for the edge!  It is removable if my pal wants to use it as a place keeper in her planner or as a book mark.

A few of the goodies that I made and tucked into the back.

Close up of the clippies for her planner!

I must be honest!  It was tough to package this little guy and send it away! LOL I loved making it!!  Something just so sweet about a big ole cow face!!

I am off to get some things done!  Enjoy your day!  Do something's good for your soul!

Much love!

More pocket letter fun!

Hello! I have several pocket letters to share with you today!  I thought since I was so behind I would group a bunch of them together and share them all at once!  

This pal requested pink, teal and Vintage! It went to Arizona.

This pal also wanted the same color combo and it went to Pennsylvania! 

This one flew all the way to Sweden!  My sweet pal wanted a maroon pocket letter!

This one went to Ireland to another sweet friend!

Removable tag.

This one went to a wonderful new pal in South Carolina and is Rainbow Brite themed!

I have met so many nice people thanks to this fun hobby!  The group has grown to over 4000 people!  If you would like to join and start making and sending pocket letters send me an email and I will get the info to you or you can search pocket letter pals on Facebook to join!  Would love to exchange letters with you!

I will be back soonest with more to share!  Have a wonderful day!

Pocket letter yum!

Hey there cupcake!  I had so much fun making this cupcake pocket letter!  It is all pink and sparkly and full of yum!  Some of my favorite things!  I got so excited when my pal requested a cupcake themed swap and  so this is what I came up with for her:

The picture doesn't show it, but there is a ton of shimmer on this little guy!

Stack of cupcakes!

This cute quote says "You can't buy happiness, but you can buy cupcakes and that's kind of the same thing!"  Too cute!!!

Good advice!

Made a shaker pocket!

Cupcake tag!

Only bad thing about making this pocket letter was that it really, really left me wanting a cupcake...or three!  Have a sweet day!

Paper clip fun!

Hi there! Are you a planner person?  I love my planner!  For me, the hunt for the perfect planner starts in December.  Once I find it I start to decorate it and personalize it and make it my very own!  I add washi tape and stickers and clips and colorful post its and all sorts of other bright, fun. happy things.  Since I have been making these pocket letters I have made all sorts of fun paper clips to include with them.  Thought I would share some of those with you:

These went along with my puppy letters!

These were for a cupcake themed pocket letter!

These went with the many owl themed pocket letters that I created!

Some cute moos!!

Some fine ladies! 

Oh so cute teddies!

Closer ups!

More closer ups!

Flowers and turtles!

Cute fairies!

These little guys are so much fun to make!  You can use them for anything, but they are so cute in a planner peeking out of the top or the sides!  

I did find the perfect planner for this year, but sadly I haven't even cracked the cover on it yet.  Making all of these fun clips lately though has inspired me to break it out and breathe some life into it! Happy planning to you!!

Puppy love!

Hello there! I have a couple of pocket letters that I wanted to share with you.  I had so much fun making these little guys!  I was just finishing up one and chatting with one of my other pocket pen pals and she said she would love to exchange puppy love pocket pages, so I made another! LOL  You can never have too much puppy love!

 I created the extra compartments on the corner pockets with the Fuse tool and added some sparkly confetti. I closed the center pocket to create a shaker pocket.

This is the second one that I made!  I popped up several of the pieces on the outside of the pockets with pop dots for some added interest. I added removable paper clips and a charm on the side that can double as a bookmark.

Dogs are such good people!!  I sure do miss my puppy!  Dogs have a way of moving right into your heart and staying there forever.

Hope you have a wonderful day!  I'll be back soonest with more to share!

Fun new toy!!

Hello!  How are you today?!   I have recently discovered the fine art of retail therapy (Ok, I didn't  just discover it, but I sure have been indulging in it!). LOL  I bought a fun new toy recently and I thought I would tell you about it!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!  It is called the Fuse and it's created, intended purpose is for Project Life.  If you are not familiar with Project Life, it is a fun and quick way to scrapbook!  I have dabbled some in it, but since I am away from home and most of my supplies I have decided to wait to really get started until I return home.  Anyhow, the fuse is intended to work with Project Life, but also happens to work beautifully with pocket letters!!  WoooHoooo!   *doing a little dance!!*.  It fuses pockets together to create new pockets or to close existing ones!!  Let me show you some examples:

Ok, here is a picture of a regular 9 pocket baseball card sleeve (and the cute Fuse tool!!).  I created a new pocket on the top right side for sequins!  I fused a line down the length of the pocket and then added the sequins and fused it closed on the top!  I created a new pocket in the middle sleeve making it two and on the two bottom right hand sleeves.  

Here is another example!  I created small pockets on the bottom left sleeve and top right sleeve and slid in candles!  I also turned the bottom most left pocket into three pockets!  (one for the candle and two for the smaller decorations!)  They are sealed shut!  The pocket on the bottom right is also now two smaller pockets.  The pocket in the center is fused closed as well.  It is a shaker pocket now!  That stuff will bounce all around in there, but won't come out!

Here is another example a little bit closer up!  I turned this pocket into two!

Here is a tag I made using it to seal the top!

Here is another example of a shaker pocket all sealed and ready to shake, shake, shake!

I am having the best time with this little tool!  I cannot wait to get home and use it on some Project Life scrapbook pages!!  Fun, fun stuff!

Hope you are having a good day!  I will be back soonest with more to share!

Well hello there!  Hope you are doing well today!  Yesterday my sweet, tiny little gma had a birthday!  She turned 98!!!  She just amazes me! She kept telling everyone she was 39 and insisted that we sing to her after she finished her cake and then she wanted to sing to us!  LOL She is a real hoot some days!   Thought I would share a few pictures from the big day with you!

Here is the birthday girl in all of her "39" years of glory! 

Here she was singing to us after we sang to her! LOL
