Someone has put this month on fast forward because I cannot keep up! If I figure out how to nail down time, I'll drop the hint here, but until then, take a deep breath and ride out this post with me...
Happy it's almost Mother's Day here in the U.S., next month, but like I said with the whole time spinning past me in a hurricane blur, it's better I get stuff done now.
This time around at The Cutting Cafe, we are showcasing the new and fabulous Clear Cardstock that Regina has here in her store. The possibilities of this product are truly endless, but I decided that I would make my first ever pocket letter. I had a little (tons) of inspiration from a fellow DT and wonderful friend. See it here.
Here's the 'decorated side' and top section
The middle section....
The bottom section.
The great part about these decorations is that each image is its own shaker. The recipient can remove them and place them in a baby book or a journal page or they can keep them right here in the protector, but I think it's just too much fun to have all the options.
All these shakers were made with the clear cardstock.
Now as per tradition, the objective with pocket letters is not only to have a theme, but to also come bearing gifts. So, here are some of my gifts that I've included that are pre-made, handmade, bought, old, new, sparkly, pretty, and hopefully useful too.
All of this came to be just from making the very first mason jar ornament with clear cardstock from the Cutting Cafe Shop.
