Cool Treats Pocket Letter Swap in New Zealand!

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Well this week has just run away!   One of the MANY fun things we did at camp was organize and take part in our first ever Pocket Letter Swap!  What’s a pocket letter?

It had to be explained to me many times!  Basically it’s done Project Life sort of style in the plastic pocket sleeves.  Create little works of art featuring a theme or a suite of products on one side. The back side usually has trinkets, treats, product, and a letter!

Here is what I swapped with someone else:

We decided as a group to use the 6×8 sized pages instead of the 12×12’s for our first attempt.  It’s a good size to get one’s feet wet anyway.


The Cool Treats Suite is probably my favorite suite in the entire catalogue!  I love how both neutral and versatile this one can be!   And don’t you just love that wee spoon?!


The coordinating dies make it so easy to make everything look just right!  I don’t know about you, but these images so remind me of my childhood.  Bright red lips, cherry red tongues, and sticky fingers all around.


And on the back I have included some coordinating product and a small note of affection.

Now this was my first attempt, but I must say I’m a bit hooked on the idea of Pocket Letters!  And I think the team is, too.  If you would like to be part of our awesome team who loves to craft and share so much, I’d love to have you!

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. I also made some NOTEBOOKS with the Cool Treats Suite!  And if you’re coming to the Tauranga Extravaganza 18 March, you’ll be making a window card with this winner as well!
