I have some happy mail to share with you today. I was inspired by the Simply Spring collection to create a garden themed pocket letter and I hope it will inspire you to get crafty as well. Beware making pocket letters can become addictive!
The die-cuts from the Odds & Ends and Chit Chat packs take center stage and that's because they are usually the first things I reach for. They are perfectly scaled for this project. I paired them with various papers from the 6x6 paper pack.

I have included a pack of Doodle-pops on which I created a topper and a pack of enamel ladybugs into a sewn pocket. In the middle, I made a shaker pocket with a combination of sequins and small die-cuts.
This little bee card might be my favorite. I used strips of paper, a sticker and a speech bubble along with a jelly clip for my recipient. Which one is your favorite?
Tips for creating pocket letters:
1/ Treat each pocket like a little layout or a present
2/ Small embellishments make it fun for your recipient to look around and maybe find surprises not visible at first (also don't forget to add goodies behind the pockets)
3/You can also decorate on the outside of the pockets like I did above. Larger items can span over a couple of pockets for a different look or just stick out (like the doily and sticker above) 
I hope you give them a try!
