Sketches In Thyme #39–Project Life Style

Pocket Letter – a project for Sketches in Thyme – Project Life Style

This is a pocket letter that I sent to my daughter at college.  I added a short and sweet handwritten note on the typewriter card before sending it off.  It is filled with happy thoughts and is just meant to let her know we are thinking about her.


I have to admit the hardest part of doing pockets, is not throwing everything but the kitchen sink into them, because it really is a splendid way to use up leftovers.

  • I used a vertical card instead of a horizontal one.
  • I substituted a square element cut from patterned paper for the round element.
  • I accented with a chipboard heart that ties into other pockets in a downward diagonal flow.
Stash: These are mostly leftover bits and bobs from my May 2016 Counterfeit Kit with the addition of 3 Stampin Up buttons and another Two Peas flair.

Paper – Teresa Collins Something Wonderful
Stickers – Life, Love Paper for Studio Calico
Chipboard – Basic Grey
