Pet Themed Mini Pocket Letter

Hello my crafty friends!


Today I have a simple project to share with you!
This is a Mini Pocket Letter with a Pet theme for a swap I'm in. The back of the pockets have a few goodies in them like ribbon, buttons, flowers, stickers, and mini bows.

While I had all of my supplies out, I went ahead and made 2 of these exactly alike. One to mail for the swap, and one for future reference or in case I need a mini pocket letter in a hurry.

I love the cat theme!

I used my Cricut to print and cut out all of the designs.
gems
wood painted buttons, enamel buttons

Never underestimate the power 
of the hand written word in a card or letter.

Today I have a fun Summer BBQ Pocket Letter
to share with you. This was created for a swap.
Actually, I created 2 of them exactly alike with the
same goodies behind the pockets. 
One of them I'll use for the swap, 
and the other I'll keep in a 3-ring binder for 
future reference and also in case I need 
a ready-to-go one in a hurry in the future.

punches: butterflies, clouds
sequins, enamel dots

The BBQ row and Ant row are attached
