Life Is A Song Pocket Letter {It's Arrived!}

My 'Life Is A Song' Pocket Letter has, finally, reached it's new owner and I am very happy to hear that Catherine loved receiving it as much as I loved making it! I adored the theme of the event, finding that writing the letter sparked some journalling - and a few scrapbooking projects that I'll be sharing soon! 


For this shot, I took all of the little cards out of their Pocket Letter, so it looks a little bit wonky. I've found a much better way of setting up my shots since sending out this one. Rapid improvement! In true 'me' style, it's a little minimalist in terms of decoration because I wanted the theme - and the little extra - to do most of the shining!


Probably my favourite element of the Pocket Letter, I love this little corner, with it's Dear Lizzy sentiment and a handmade button clip. (I do love adding little extras that I've handmade.) And, it's on the outside of the Pocket Letter, so it adds a nice, dimensional touch!


The Pocket Letter Guide (available as a free download) also recommends little extras that could be included - either as an element of the overall letter, or as a hidden extra - so I raided my, shockingly sized, unused stationary stash *ahem* and sent some extras - washi samples, clips, stick-it notes and buttons. 


Since the Pocket Letter itself was a little minimal, I wanted to include something a bit more dimensional, so I decided to make a mini (truly, tiny) album so that I could also send some paper samples, brads, tags and more washi. I love how it turned out and I'll definitely be making more of these little beauties in the future! It was a wonderful way to use leftovers from my January Counterfeit Kit - Moody Blues.

I've found Pocket Letters a lot more fun that I was expecting. There's something really lovely about creating a Pocket Letter - and litle extras - for someone else (and usually, for someone that you haven't even met) and then sending it on it's way. If you have been thinking about joining in with a swap, then I would definitely recommend The Pocket Letter Pals Network or maybe you would like to swap with me?
