My First Pocket Letter!

Hi Everyone!
Today I want to share with you my first Pocket Letter that I made! Pocket Letters are a very trending thing right now and I've been curious about them for quite a while now. So when my friend Diane (from Ai Design Team) asked if anyone wanted to exchange Pocket Letters I jumped at the chance! I watched a ton of Youtube videos and read lots of blogs to see just what you needed to do. Here is my finished letter.
The basic idea is that you use a 9 Pocket Trading Card Protector and fill each pocket with anything you like. It's sort of like making 9 ATC cards. You can add goodies if you like and usually you add a little note as well. The idea is then you can fold the page protector and mail it in a standard size 10 envelope. For me I mailed mine flat in a bubble envelope to make sure it got to Diane is good shape!
I am using all papers and some ephemera from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge 6x6 paper collection.  I backed all my design papers with plain black cardstock. The doll stamp is from the Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll line and is named "Olive".  I coloured her with my Copics and Paper pieced her outfit. She even has some bling jewellery on!
 I added little goodies in some of the pockets for her to use. I tried to stay with the same colour scheme for the goodies. I made the heart filled with sequins using my We Are Memory Keepers Fuse Tool and a pocket page.
I added a tiny envelope that contained a letter that is sort of an "all about me". Sorry you can't see what I wrote LOL, you'll have to do a swap with me to find out!! 

I hope Diane likes the Pocket Letter! As soon as I receive hers and take some pictures I will show you what she sent me!

Happy Crafting!

Today I received Diane's Pocket letter! She couldn't have picked a better theme to give to me as I love my coffee! I love the colour theme she choose and the ribbon on the side is so cute! I love the coffee cup embossed paper too! Super cute!! Thanks Diane for all the attached goodies!
