Iam still soooo addicted to these pocket letters that iam even starting to create them when i have nobody specific to swap them with haha!
Anyhows i have kind of been neglecting making cards and using my other new stuff etc. I’ve only just recently re-subscribed once again to the monthly simon says stamp kit and iam loving it right now,(Can NOT wait for the new october one to land on my doorstep) Iam still loving the whole pocket letter thing though.
I wanted to join in with this weeks SIMON SAYS STAMP CHALLENGE
Then it dawned on me to create a pocket letter with th sss monthly kit so thats exactly what i did!
I only used papers from the kit to create it.
The centre pocket insert was stamped with images and sentiment from ‘birthday bits’ and sequins and glitter added, turned it into a shaker pocket with the good ole fuse tool (Love the fuse)
As wee as using the ‘birthday bits ‘ stamp set that come with the sept kit , i also used the speach bubble stamp from the ‘whats brewing’ set and the hello is part of the ‘to thine own shelf’ stamp set.
I machine stitched a banner
I created little flag paper clips
I also created to large paperclips by laminating elements cut out from the papers and attaching to the clips.
I couldn’t resist creating some dinky little shaker pockets with some of the other elements cut from the papers.
I of course had to decorate a couple of clothes pins with the papers too .
I also created a tag shaker pocket using birthday bits stamp set, sequins n glitter, tied a pink tulle bow in the top and i have left the tails long enough so as it can be tied around the folded PL when its ready for mailing.
I really, really enjoyed creating this PL as i actually prefer using limited supplies . It got me to thinking how ‘cool’ would it be if there was a monthly sss monthly kit pocket letter swap where everyone created a PL just using that months kit, then swapped with a partner. Would be interesting to see what people created using the exact same supplies! ?Hmmmm mabe i will have to mention it on the flickr group or instagram, or pockeletter pals or maybe all of them
Thanks very muchly for looking
