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) :
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.
Paper, stickers and buttons : Bo Bunny ("Altitude")
Brads : Toga ("Hiver poudré")
Rub-on snowflakes (pocket 4) : Toga ("Etoiles d'hiver")
Die cuts (pocket 1, 2 and 6) : Kaisercraft ("Silver Bells")
Glittering snowflake (pocket 5) : Pebbles
Paper clip : Pink Paislee ("Yuletide")

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 :
- pink, turquoise, gold, green
- animals, coffee, chocolate, Teddy Bears
- 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 :
Paper, chipboard, stickers (pockets 1, 3, 4, 5 and 8) : Crate Paper (Wonder)
White teddy bear die-cut + brown label "Just me & my Teddy Bear" : Kaisercraft ("Teddy Bear's Picnic")
Brown Teddy Bear : Little Birdie (Teddy mini Embellishments)
Penguin puffy sticker : Eksuccess Sticko Stickers (Penguins & Plar bears)
Chocolate ice-cream : October Afternoon ("Summertime Little Labels")
Chocolate cake stamp : Artemio
Coffee cup (pocket 2) : Bo Bunny paper ("Whiteout")
3D coffee cup and books : Prima marketing ("Coffee break")

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 !!
Paper, blue brad and chipboards : Bo Bunny ("Whiteout")
Stack of cups stamp : Taylored expressions ("Tea-~riffic")
Coffee beans and tea label stamps : Florilèges Design
Fir tree paper clip : Pink Paislee

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 :
