Hi there everyone! So a while back, like sometime in the first week of March, I realized that Easter was in March...eek...I had no idea and it just seemed so early! I realized that the first thing I had to do was add some Easter-ness to my planner! :-) I had already decorated March with a more, lucky, St. Patrick theme, thinking I only had one holiday to concern myself with. So I had to rectify the situation and subsequently, I made a cute little bunny tag to go inside my planner and mark Easter week. I used the Crate Paper collections Little You and Bloom by Maggie Holmes to make the tag. I loved the tag so much that I thought about it and realized that I wanted to make some more for my friends! I had talked to a couple of different friends (an older but super dear friend, and a very new sweet friend) about being Penpals and sending pocket page letters to each other.
If you don't know, pocket pages are this super fun new way of being creative and sending something cute to your friends to use in their Planner or in their Scrapbooking projects, while also reviving the age old tradition of the handwritten letter! I myself love this new fun way to be crafty and stay in touch with new and old friends! I decided that I would make a tag like the one I made for my planner, for my two friends and send that to them attached to their Pocket Page letter! Originally, the tags and the letters were supposed to be more Easter themed, but then of course, I got bronchitis for Easter-time and didn't get to complete my Pocket Page letters and send them before Easter Sunday....bah! So I decided instead, since both friends have recently had babies (one has a little baby girl and the other has two baby boys), to do a baby themed Pocket Page & Tag for both of them!
I used Crate Paper's awesomely adorable Little You collection mostly (along with a little Maggie Holmes Bloom collection) to make my Pocket Page Letters for my two lovely Pen Pals! I loved layering the different pattern papers for the tags and adding the cute little chipboard stickers from the Little You Boy and Girl collections to the tops of the tags! Those super adorable bunnies and that sweet little bear are too cute for words!
I really like the way they came out! It's my first time trying this Pocket Page Letter thing so I hope its okay, that I did it right, and they like what I made! I really had fun with it though and I'm hopeful that they will love their Pocket Pages and that their tags will end up in their planners (or some other special place) like my own little bunny tag....which is so happy sitting in my planner! In fact, I may need an excuse to make another Planner tag like this :-) ! Hope you take this post as inspiration/an excuse to make your own tags and Pocket Page Letters! Let's keep snail mail alive, people! Hurrah for Penpals!
