When my children saw the Advent Calendars I had created for the Pocket Letter Penpals event, they told me they wanted a pocket letter instead of a chocolate, lego or Playmobil Calendar. So, here is the first one, made for my eldest daughter (12) :



    Léa's Advent Calendar

    Paper and die-cuts : Pinkfresh Studio ("Christmas Wishes"

    Enamel shapes : Pink Paislee ("Yuletide")

    Swowflake chipboard : Toga ("Noël poudré")

    Winter event (Pocket letter Pals) :

    I fell in love with this Bo Bunny theme : "Altitude". Unfortunately, it comes from the 2014 collection so there weren't many items left in stores. I had to use brads and embellishments from other brands.

    Brads : Toga ("Hiver poudré")

    Rub-on snowflakes (pocket 4) : Toga ("Etoiles d'hiver")

    For this event, our partner gave a list of words : at least four colours, things she liked and goodies she would enjoy to get.

    We had to create a pocket letter using at least 2 colours or items in each category. Here are the words my partner gave me :

    1. pink, turquoise, gold, green
    2. animals, coffee, chocolate, Teddy Bears
    3. washi, kawai, stickers, stamps, embellishments


    I decided to use everything, which was quite a challenge ! The most difficult for me was to find something for the chocolate. I found in my supplies a sticker with a chocolate ice-cream and a French stamp with a chocolate cake. As for "gold", I chose a few items with gold accent.


    Here is the result :


    "I am" event

    For this event, I used the Whiteout range from Bo Bunny. I thought it went perfectly with the theme. I used a brown backgroung to give a coffee colour to my pocket letter. I also tried my first die-cutting machine for the first time (for the tea pots, the quote and the cups). Never had a machine before so I still have to practise !!

    This pocket letter was made for a private swap. As my partner liked gypsy style as well as sunset shades, I thought this paper from K & Company was perfect for her. Here is the result :


    Bohemian style
