Tim Holtz themed Pocket Letter

Yup another Pocket Letter :)
I was asked by Melinda, if I would like to do a Tim Holtz themed Pocket Letter.
I am game for most anything, and you all know I love Tim Holtz's style.

All of the background pattern papers are all scraps that were in my scrap folder…and bonus, they are all from Tim Holtz :)

Because the pattern paper was all so very dark, I needed a way to brighten the Pocket letter up.
So I took some white card stock, trimmed it a bit smaller than the background paper and inked that baby up.
I used 3 different colours of distress inks for this.

I then used a lot of Tim's stamps and stamped some backgrounds on the card stock and decorated each card.
I also used his mini dies to cut out elements for each card.
Each pocket or card has a different theme.

I had received Melinda's pocket before I was able to send mine out…so here is hers :)
I like that she added ribbon to the binder holes.
She also used one main piece of paper and then cut it apart to fit the protector pockets :)

Here is how I mailed my Pocket Letter.
I misted the doily to give it a vintage look to go with the theme of the letter :)

Oh look, I did a video on my Pocket Letter and a bit of a tip on how I made the banner :)
If you would rather watch it on my YouTube channel….to get the whole project in the screen, just click on the link "Tracy's Treasures24"
I don't know why YouTube isn't putting (or letting me put) a thumbnail on my videos lately :(

I hope you all have a very Creative Weekend.
Not sure how much I can get on the internet this long weekend, as I am off to our yearly "Girls Weekend" at my SIL's camp and will be crafting the nights away.
She doesn't get internet up there…or every once in a while we may get a weak signal.
So we will see….just know I will be having a blast :)
