Spring Pocket Letter Swap - Sign Up Here!

              Spring Pocket Letter Page Swap
Sign Ups - 4-7 through 4-22
(names/addies sent out 4-23/4-24)
Ship Date 5-7-16

(YES, this swap is open to international friends!)

For those of you that participated in the last LP swap you know what fun is in store...for others you might be wondering what is a pocket letter?  Think of Pocket Letters as a set of ATC's with a few extra goodies thrown in.  Basically you take a 9 hole Baseball Card page; make an ATC for each space (more on this later) and tuck in little surprises behind each card...and don't forget the letter part!  Tuck a note into one of the pockets telling your friend a little bit about yourself (if you don't know them) or if you do let them know what's going on in your life at the moment.

Each pocket can hold a card with the same general theme yet each with a different design.

(Pocket Letter by Karen W)

You might sprinkle gifts on both sides...

(Pocket Letter by Loretta)

You could choose different designs for each card.

Or it could focus on a single color scheme.

(Pocket Letter By Heidi)

You could even make a pocket letter by creating a large scene then cutting it up to fit into the pockets.

Whatever you choose your pocket letter should be filled with art from your heart! 

Remember the back is just as important as the front of your Pocket Letter.  You should add a letter in one of the pockets, telling the recipient a bit about yourself, maybe about where you live, work, your art, etc.  The remaining 8 pockets can be filled with anything you can fit could be stickers, die-cuts, sticky back gems, buttons, eyelets, vintage ephemera, washi tape, glitter tape, fibers, ribbon, charms, pins, brads, twine, felt pieces, gemstones, etc.  Virtually anything you can think of.  You can also add little treats too - tea, cocoa, sweets, mints, etc. 


  • You can sign up here for one or two spots - Sign ups run from today through 4-22.
  • Once sign ups are closed I will send you a name and address of the person you will be sending your Pocket Letter to. 
  • Make a pocket letter and fill it with goodness (you can start on this right now if you like).
  • You should mail your Pocket Letter to the recipient no later than May 7th, of course you can send it earlier if you would like.  Once your pocket letter has been mailed, send me an e-mail with the confirmation number so I can keep track of everyone's progress and to make sure nobody is forgotten.  You will not go without receiving a PL...I make sure of it :)
  • Stalk the mailman for happy mail!
  • When you receive your pocket letter, PLEASE let me know and send a thank you to the person who sent it! We all like to receive an acknowledgement for our work :)


Please post an e-mail addy when you sign up so I can send you an e-mail to obtain the necessary info. for the swap.
