Woodland Themed Pocket Letter, Take 2

{apologizing in advance for the glare,

This post is the first of two where I have had personal requests asking me to create a pocket letter for a member of Pocket Letter Pals. It's always flattering when someone enjoys your creations enough to reach out to you and ask to swap letters. I'm thrilled to have a new pal, Mary, from the Sunshine State and as it turns out we've been partnered for a another group swap mid-month. I have a feeling Mary will be one of my permanent pals because I can tell she has a heart of gold. I adored her letter and I'm sharing it today as well. 

{I love this little fox}

My letter to Mary uses the same paper collections as my first woodland themed pl (which had 200+ likes on the PLP's FB page, crazy!) did but I threw a new one into the mix for fun. Also on the 2nd row I stayed with Webster's Pages Sweet Seasons dp's for all 3 pockets. I'll be honest and share that this is one collection I've hoarded and with my 2nd pl here the dp with the cozy cottage is gone. But it's ok, I'm glad the owners of these letters are thrilled with them and that makes me happy. I have pictures and can see it anytime I want. ;)  

The red starry dp is the new one and again I used Jolee's Boutique 3D stickers to enhance my woodland theme pocket letter-Woodland Animals, Holiday Rings, Snowmen, Holly Flourish and Holiday Tree w/Gifts. The NOEL on the bottom row is also by JB but I can't remember the name of the set it's in. The pinecone stickers are by Recollections from Michael's. For the 2nd row I used Deco Art's Snow-Tex to build up my snowy drifts and I fussy cut the bird ephemera from a Brenda Walton dp. The spine is decorated with red glitter washi tape by Heidi Swapp, holly brads by TPS and ribbon.

This photo shows this row without the extra 3D (minus the owl) elements. I love this sweet scene and it just calls for snow. There are a lot of products out there but Deco Art's Snow-Tex is my favorite because it's pre-mixed and there's no mess. Simply apply it with a palette knife and let it dry! Not to mention the awesome texture of it. :)

So happy Mary loves her pl and now I'm excited to share the one she created for me. 

See why I love it!
She did a lot of stamping and there's so much attention to detail that I wanted to share some closeups with you.

I love Santa Claus and the vintage paper on the 2nd pocket is awesome. The first pocket was stamped and you might not be able to tell but his coat looks amazing and has texture to it. It says - He's making a list and checking it twice - and I can share that even at age 51 Santa still visits me. Guess I'm a good girl lol. ;)

Celebrate Your Inner Elf  - ha ha I love it and the elf shoes rock!
Love the dimensionals as well.

In my home snowmen are everywhere during Christmas (hello my last name is Snowdy) and this guy with his shovel of snow (pom poms) is so cute. Love the stamped tree!

{love pl's but they are a pain to photograph bc of the glare}

This is the back of her letter filled with delightful goodies for me, thank you Mary!

Okay tomorrow is my 5th day in a row of sharing pocket letters here on my blog. It has a Christmas theme as well and a different woodsy vibe to it. Hope you'll check it out. 
Have a wonderful day,
Lisa xx

Love seeing, or even studying, your pocket letters, Lisa. I very much like that rustic tree in the middle of the top row and your 3 part scene in the middle. So many fun details on the whole project!
+200 likes is amazing, and so well deserved!
