Club Scrap Transformations Blog Hop

Welcome to Club Scrap's September - Transformations Blog Hop!  This month's kit - Transformations is so beautiful.  I love everything from the colors to the stamps right down to the smallest embellishments.  It's just perfect!

So this month I wanted to make something that I have fallen in love with recently...a Pocket Letter!  I just love making these little devils.  The concept behind them is a new way to send notes, quotes and goodies to a friend.  You can save and collect them in any 3 ring binder. Since this kit has such inspiring quotes I thought it would be perfect!

I started off by choosing various papers to use for each block and then I added a bit of stamping, embellishments, quotes and a few other bits to each card.  Everything you see comes with the kit with the exception of the peacock feather, twine and real bamboo pieces. They were in my stash but I thought they fit the theme very well.

Once I had finished up the front side of my pocket letter it was time to fill it up!  I added several embellishments from the kit, a few "cut apart" pieces, some fun woven jute (from my stash), tea and lifesavers.

I then folded and trussed it up so nothing would fall out and my pocket letter is ready to be mailed! 

Who's it going to???  Well, that's to be determined....maybe it'll be in the mail to you.  To be entered to win, simply leave a comment and I'll toss your name in to the hat. Please be sure to leave me some way to contact you in case you don't see your name announced. 

You have until 10-6-15 to enter.

When I was cleaning up I noticed I had lots of smaller left-overs from this and other projects I've made this month so I decided rather than just stuff them in my scrap box I'd make some cards first.

Rock On Dude!

and the inside 
(since many of you have asked to see how I finish the inside of cards)

This is a long skinny card that fits into a standard business size envelope.

and it's inside.  I like these cards because there is so much
space for writing a note inside.

And finally one more...

with just a bit of bamboo stamped on the inside.

Well that's all I have for you this month.
I hope you've been inspired to create...
your next creative stop on the hop is...
