Hello beautiful friends! I am so excited to be sharing my creation using the Succulent Springtide Pocket Letters® printable today on the Pocket Letters blog! I loved incorporating the printable in a way that was different and fun! I did a lot of fussy cutting and embellishing! I would say that my crafty style is bright and girly! I love layering and mixing patterns which you can see all over this pocket letter!
Shaker pockets are oh so fun and for this one I used the printable with all the adorable succulents in the back and then a piece of gridded gold foil vellum on top. I stuffed it with pretty hot pink sequins, teal sequins, and mauve and iridescent sequins I picked up from the Target Dollar Spot.
This is one of my favorite pockets that I made putting two of the printables together. I LOVED the big “PRETTY THINGS INSIDE” but I wanted to add a personal touch. In all of my projects and happy mail I include a “hidden message” for my pals to see when they open their mail. I want to encourage you all to write from your heart and remind your pals and loved ones that they are important, they are loved, and they are beautiful! Remember to spread happiness, be kind, and ALWAYS be yourself. In this pocket I reminded my pal that inside that perfection we all have there is beauty and “pretty things inside.” I used the Tim Holtz word stickers.
The printable also served as a wonderful inspiration for me! On this pocket I used the printable that said “Happy Mail” as a guide and I stamped it myself to this pocket. I LOVE mixing different tiny stamp sets and I love the handmade feel it gives off. I also cut one of the printables with those pretty leaves and layered it in the back with some light blue thread and that gold fringe piece.
This adorable nerdy succulent (aka Winston) was a favorite element of mine from the printable so I wanted to highlight it by placing a cute scallop frame chipboard sticker on the outside of the pocket. I love adding details to the outside of the pockets as well as the inside because it brings in so much texture and interest!
I hope you all enjoyed my pocket letter I created! This is how I packaged it! I put it in a 6×9 sealable plastic bag (amazon) and put in some pink crinkle paper and sequins! I made a belly band and fussy cut some more succulents from the printable and added another layer of the gold foiled grid vellum. Then I stamped “happy happy mail” with my tiny Studio G stamps, layered a heart with some thread, and added a gold paper clip!
