    Well, creating pocket letters is quite addictive and I can't resist when I see lovely things... I love the idea of subscription kits : it allowes you to have a great variety of paper, embellishments, cards... So I decided to subscribe to Gossamer Blue main kit and  Cliquekits main kit. I also buy from time to time the Cocoa Daisy  kit (I should get their October kit pretty soon) and the Scrap and Kits Co kit... it depends on the amount of money left at the end of the month  sarcastic

  • Here is my second pocket letter for the Advent Calendar event. This time, I chose a Winter theme.

    Apart from the washi tape, I only used Bo Bunny items from the "Sleigh Ride" collection, especially the ephemera pack which is fantastic !
