Pocket Letter Creations #1~

I'm not sure if you have heard of the latest craze in papercrafting?
Pocket Letters introduced by Janette Lane.
You can find FB Groups, and websites dedicated to just this craft.

I was instantly drawn to Pocket Letters, as it is a throwback to the late 80's and early 90' childhood. Does anyone else remember the days where you could sign up for a penpal? Other children around the world that would register to find a friend to write letters to.
I had penpals in England, Australia, Italy, and the Philippines. Some of these people I still keep in touch with, online and some still in letter form.
My penpal from Italy even came to eastern Canada twice to visit!!

So to say that I was interested in Pocket Letters in an understatement.
Who doesn't love to receive REAL mail. Something that isn't junk mail or a bill.

Here are a couple of the first Pocket Letters that I created.

My first Pocket Letter was created using patterned paper and embellishments from the HomeMade collection from Pebbles Inc.

Most pocket letters are created using Collector Card page sleeves.
I treat each pocket as a mini layout.

Then in the back of the pockets, you include little goodies for your recipient.

You wrap up your pocket letter, and often they fit into a regular sized envelope.

Here is my second Pocket Letter that I created.

I used the Harmony collection from Authentique.
The recipient requested a more vintage feel.

So much fun to create, and so much fun to receive your swap partners letter back.
Thanks for stopping by.


  1. I've been avoiding this new craze...cuz I don't have time for it but gosh you are sure tempting me! These are gorgeous Tracey!

  2. Your pocket letters are BEAUTIFUL. I joined a thing called snail mail revival where you are matched up with Pen Pals. I have four Pen Pals and have now started using the Pocket Letter Format. It helps me from making my parcel to bulky. I think the Pocket Letter format is awesome
