Hello! and HAPPY NEW YEAR 2018!  It is January 1st of a brand new year: Wishing all of us the happiest/healthiest year!  On that note, I am here today with a POCKETLETTER with appropriately, a WINTER theme created for a swap and (click & go-> ) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  A brand new monthly challenge -you have ALL MONTH to join in for a chance to win $50 in their fabulous (and reasonable!) products. Sure hope to see you there!

BE INSPIRED BY:
the "twist" is to use GLITTER

MY POCKETLETTER:
I used a lot of Creative Embellishments Products on this POCKETLETTER!
ATC sized tag:  I covered each of the 3 tags in white gesso, ran them through the embossing machine with a snowflake embossing folder, added Silver Stickles and embellished the remainder of the tag.  Snowflake Stamp:  I stamped the lower left card pocket using white ink.  Snowflake Banner:  I cut a piece and placed it on the lower left card and then added Bling to the centers.  Large Snowflake set:  I left them natural for a "pop" and placed them UL, UR and LR. WINTER Flair buttons:  in the center is "Winter" and Lower left: Let it Snow; they add so much dimension and are just fun to use!
