Here's what I sent to my partner, Chrissy for the swap. You had to send a pocket letter or a flip book. I was looking at other people's swap videos, and I feel like I'm the only one who created a flip book. I've been having so much fun doing flip books lately, that I kind of miss pocket letters, mostly the goodies because I tend to decorate my flip books more than put goodies in them.
We decided to do a fall rather than a Halloween theme.
The background here is just brown, I put a strip of paper that says fall on the bottom. I actually waited to finish this page last because of how bulky that sunflower is. It's glued on with hot glue and I should have put it further up, but you know how it is when you have the hot glue and it's getting cooler, it just goes where it falls.

This paper just had words about fall on it. I added the journaling spot, it's actually a pocket page from Hobby Lobby. The alphas are from a sticker book from Walmart. Someone sent me the flowers, I believe they're from Micheal's. The ladybugs were in my stash. The pumpkins are from Darice sticker books except the one in the middle, that's from Hobby Lobby.
Here are the handmade cards:
Anyways, I'm not that great at cards. I just need to get one of those magazines that shows you how to layer paper to make really neat cards. If you look closely, you can see the layered paper on the Thanksgiving card is crooked, I'm not that great at straight lines either. I just layered some paper, a turkey sticker and spelled out "happy thanksgiving" in alphas. I always mess up the spacing when I spell things out.
The other one is a weird size, I had this pink polka dot paper on my desk so I folded it in half, added a couple of pink washi banners, a strip of washi tape from the Dollar Tree and a word sticker from Hobby Lobby.
This picture has my 5 samples of washi, 5 handmade embellishments, and 1 or 2 extras:
I also included a caramel apple candle and some pumpkin ribbon.
Here are my paper sheets:
Here is my mug and stickers:
I really like what I sent to Chrissy, and I can't wait until Esther's next swap.
