Ok, finally onto my project and challenge for YOU!  As many of you have probably seen there is s new paper crafting craze these days… the Pocket Letter!!  I’m so crazy about them myself because I love to connect with other paper crafter’s around the world and share fun things with them.  That’s one of the reasons I opened my Etsy shop 5 years ago this month.  I wanted to connect with other crafters who loved this hobby as much as I do.  

To create my Pocket Letter I used Heidi Swapp’s fantastic Hello Today paper line and several different embellishments from my shop including the Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss wood veneers, sequins, washi tape and the actual pocket letter page protectors.

I have a special someone in mind to send this Pocket Letter to 🙂

Hi, there, scrappy friends….I hope everyone had a fun weekend. Are you ready to start scrappin’….I bet some of you already have. Here is what I have been up to. I decided to create another pocket page for one for one of my scrapbooks. As always, it was fun playing with my embellishments from SpiegelMom Scraps Ok, let’s get started. Here is the completed layout; then, I will get into the details.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

It is always fun scrapping pics of my kids when they were younger. I definitely have plenty of those pics to scrap yet. This is great for Jody’s 15 minutes a day plan 🙂 Speaking of a plan, here is the first detail I wanted to include. It was fun watching my children together as they shared my daughter’s 7th birthday.

@jodyspiegelhoff @spiegelmomscraps

Oh, and I just love the heart with all of those lovely sentiments. I really like the way it fits in the pocket so nicely.

Well, you know how much I adore the sequins from SpiegelMom Scraps….I had to use them on this layout, too. Before I show you the detail shot, I would like to share how sequins have become a part of our home. My hubby found some on the floor in our kitchen and and asked me if I needed these. I told my hubby that I definitly did….I think he gets the picture….really, what kitchen floor doesn’t need a bit of sparkle, right?

I really had good time creating this layout. I sure hope that you have some time for creating yourselves this week. Oh, I would love to hear!! I will be back next week with one more project as SpiegelMom Scraps GD for June. It’s been great!!

Happy Scrapping,
