...are an essential part of the design this year. About every other page is going to have a pocket for a postcard. My plan is to do my journalling, wherever I can anyway, as a postcard to a named someone. I have tested this plan by making a page which is a postcard from me to Santa telling him what I would like, and then I just slipped the postcard into the pocket. Well, plans often evolve, so if the postcard idea gets a bit awkward I will just snip off the pockets, as they are only folded. The other side of the postcard below is an off cut of the paper collection I'm using, but I guess it could also be a photo.
I am using the postcard and franking stamps from my Stampin Up set "Winter Post" which also includes a stunning snowflake and four other very versatile stamps. I embossed the snowflake in silver on Thursday having never used it before, during a christmas packaging demo at a workshop and I couldn't believe how beautifully it came out!
