Summer Themed Pocket Letter! Using my Hoard of supplies!

Happy Summer friends! We are expecting temps to hit 120 here in Arizona this week! Not looking forward to doing anything in that heat!

I really want to stop hoarding my supplies and dig into them and start using them so I pulled out the Melon Patch stack that I purchased last summer and decided to cut into those big, lovely 12X12 sheets and actually use them! 

I like to swap happy mail so with Pocket letters being all the rage right now I like to always have one pre-made and ready to be swapped so here is my latest one:

 In these pockets I added hand made flowers, stamped summer images and a mini envelope with cut outs from the paper stack

I made an embellishment cluster, sewed a pocket full of goodies, die cuts and stickers

 I handmade ribbon planner clips, a tag with sample ribbon and extra tags

I used the DoodleCharms Cricut Cartridge and made this cute watermelon paperclip!

A sequin pocket is not complete with out some Bottle DoubleClick Skittles!
