Gossamer Blue

Pocket Letter

0 Comments

Hi there! I am back today to share a new pocket letter! I hadn’t done one in a few months and felt the urge to do so, especially after receiving my Gossamer Blue May kits!

 

If you are not yet familiar with pocket letters, you can read more about them on my personal blog (Pocket Letters? Jump in on the trend!). For this latest one, I mostly used the pretty Life Pages kit but also added a couple of papers and elements from the Scrapbooking and the Planner kits (they coordinate so well!).

The alpha stamps I used above is a gift to new subscribers (while supplies last). I love this stamp set’s¬†smaller size and I love to combine it with letter stickers. The “Carpe that diem” stamp which I split to fit on a tag is from the set included in the Life Pages kit.

The first pocket holds a small letter but the others contain little gifts for the recipient, die-cuts, wood veneers, chipboard shapes, enamel dots and page flags (all from the May kits) but also a washi sampler and a little mint tea bag (hidden behind).

I absolutely love the extra touch brought by the circle stamp above which is from the Scrapbooking kit.

A few tips before I go:

– choose cards from the Life Pages kit that you can trim to fit into pocket letters (2.5×3.5in.). I especially love the ones with quotes.

– cut other papers that match you cards as background for your other pockets

– include an assortment of shapes and materials

– add a few touches on top of the pockets (in addition to inside)

– personalize it if you know who you are sending it too

 

I hope this gives you another idea on how to use your gorgeous May kits! See you next month!

Send Out Word!

Hi there! Thanks for joining me. It’s Sian here today, with a handful of cards I’ve made to send out in May.

We want to spread the word here at Gossamer Blue that our kits are now all exclusive and we couldn’t be more excited!!

I’ve been a fan of the Planner Kit since I first set eyes on it: the smaller sized papers and the perfect little diecuts are just the right size to piece together into greetings cards if you don’t need to work on a planner. But you’ve heard me say that before, right?

So how about I go one step further and shout about the new Traveler’s Notebook kit? I’m going to be filling that notebook for sure; but Lori and her designers have spent so much care and thought on coordinating everything across all of the kits, I couldn’t help reaching into the Traveler’s Notebook collection for a tiny piece or two to add to my cards

With all of the papers and embellishments mixing and matching, finding just the right thing has never been easier. So get the word out! Send a card! Tell your friends! It’s all new at Gossamer Blue!

May Weekly Spread Using Planner Kit

Hey planner and scrapbook friends! I was so excited when I heard that our kits were mainly Gossamer Blue exclusives! This month’s color palette was such a spring feel with bright yellows and carnation pinks.¬†

Here’s the filled spread in my Get To Work Book:

Those cute die cuts are to die for. I used my Prima planner glue pen to adhere those tiny guys down:

The stickers in this month’s kit was also thinner so your planner won’t look so clunky when you have it closed:

I love this month’s title cards/to-do list cards as well:

This month’s planner kit also coordinates well with the new Travel Notebook kits! Have you seen them? They are fabulous!
