Now onto some CREATIVE Fun stuff from Raven!
Hey beautiful crafters! Creative Crew member Raven Baca here for A Creative Journey with Melissa. How are you doing on this beautiful summer day? Well if you are in the United States, it’s summer. Abroad you are in the middle of winter. How cool is that?
Today I have a little something to share with you that will keep you warm. It’s a Pocket Letter. If you don’t know what a pocket letter is, it is a way for people to exchange letters like pen pals in a page protector format with nine pockets that easily fits into a standard binder for you to keep. You include a personal note, some fun creative goodies as well as some of your pen-pals favorite things. In this case – COFFEE of course! I have really thrown my creativity into pocket letters and I JUST LOVE IT! I love being creative and I also LOVE Pen-Paling so Pocket Letters are the best of both worlds! It’s just fabulous and I hope I will inspire you to be creative by the project I am highlighting today.
For today’s post I made a coffee themed pocket letter for one of my dear friends. I asked her if she liked coffee. We were great friends in High School and she has since moved out of state so unfortunately, we don’t get to spend much time together. Her response to me was,”only with my oxygen.” Kinda love that so I’m using that as my new saying lol.
This was her little gift and I’m sharing with you all for inspiration. I hope you love it and you find some ideas that inspire you to pay it forward!
For the pocket letter creation the stamps I used were from the Coffee is My Liquid Therapy Stamp Set.
This was her envelope that I just had to decorate using the same color scheme and stamp set. I LOVE that large coffee mug. Isn’t it just the cutest thing? I also decided to use a few more stamp sets that I love from A Creative Journey with Melissa and I love how they all worked together!
