Pocket Letter#2. The theme for this pocket is Planner Addict. I used a variety of different paper lines. The majority of the stickers are from The 9 to 5 line by October Afternoon. Other Items I used are from MAMBI, Basic Grey, Target Dollar spot, Studio 112, Sticko, The girl's Paperie. The middle Pocket holds 3 paperclips (from left to right: Maggie Holmes, Kate Spade and Freckled Fawn).
When I have extra time; I like to wrap up the pocket letters as "gifts". What I used here is a paper Doily (You can find them in the cake making section at Michaels/Hobby Lobby/Joanns), a scrap piece of patterned cardstock adorned with Washi Tape, and a "thanks" label, a laminated Stag, a Gold glittered heart, and a pink paperclip to hold them all in place.
Here is a close up of the bottom pocket. I painted a piece of chipboard and once it dried I ran it through my Big Shot using the Sewing Room Sizzix die. I then added a picture (also from Tim Holtz), a flash card that says, "today" (also by Tim Holtz), and layered a Prima Marketing Flower along with a butterfly and safety pin from Tim Holtz. I then added some gesso to the "today" flash card to give it a little texture.
