Friendship Insecurities

September 22, 2015

 First of all, the main reason I'm even posting this is because I feel like it might help get these feelings out of my head or at least let me be able to think about something else.. I hope this doesn't seem like I want to be pitied, because that isn't it at all. I'm really bad at posting things like this but this is one thing that I just needed to get out. 

September Blog Hop | Gossamer Blue

September 15, 2015

Hi everyone! For today's blog hop, I am sharing some super simple cards that I created with this month's kits. These cards are perfect if you are new to card making and don't want to go out and buy special supplies just for cards.

Gossamer Blue - Week 25

September 06, 2015

Hello, I hope you are all doing well. Today I am sharing week 25 which I really love! I used a mix of the Life Pages kit, Life Pages Add-on #3 and some scrapbook paper! If you have been following me for a while, my pages tend to look pretty different from each other and that is something I want to work on. If all of my pages looked like this, I'd be pretty happy!

My First Pocket Letters

September 01, 2015

Last week I created my first ever pocket letters! I'm sure most of you have heard of pocket letters by now but I didn't really understand what they were until recently. I understood the basic concept of them but that was it. I started watching videos on YouTube about pocket letters and what kind of things to include and thought I should just go ahead and try it! Also, there is a video at the end which gives you a better look at the pocket letters.

 The traditional way of doing pocket letters is to use an 8.5x11 page protectors which hold 9 2.5"x3.5"  cards. I decided to use regular Project Life page protectors because it was what I had and it also makes more sense to send something the right size for using in Project Life.

Most of the cards I used are Studio Calico because I have so many. Quite a few of the embellishments are from there as well. I also used some cards and embellishments I have received through Gossamer Blue. 

I tried to give hints as to what was behind each card so for example I put enamel dots on the card which had enamel dots behind it. There are also a couple of pockets which don't have cards and only embellishments and I did that because either the embellishments were too bulky or because I liked the way it looked.

From what I've seen from videos, I was quite generous when it came to putting things in the pockets but I have also seen people put almost nothing in the pockets! You can add whatever you are comfortable with but also make sure you are being fair.

Here is a video showing some close ups and explaining what is in my pocket letters.

I hope you enjoyed and learned something about pocket letters! I'll see you next time.
