Christmas is my favorite time of year! I believe in the beauty of the season and the magic it bring with it! I hope you enjoy this hop I put together for you all!

For my project I am sharing a swap I participated in for the first time ever this Christmas. It was a Christmas Pocket Page Swap and it truly was magical to create and to receive one of these beauties!

If you don't know about pocket letters, they are basically baseball card protector sheets where each pocket is decorated to the theme. Then you add small gifts in the back f the pockets for your person as well as a small letter. They are really special! Then you can use them on layouts, cards, or just keep them in a binder to look at and collect.

Here's a few shots of some of the individual pockets so you can see the details better!!

I used a lot of CTMH Sparkle Tape in various colors! So pretty!! And also used CTMH stamps, ink and thin cuts!

The center features a shaker pocket full of beads and sequins! 

This pocket is one of my favs because this little box plays Christmas Carols!

I hope you enjoyed my project and maybe you might want to try and make a pocket letter in the future for a friend! There re so much fun!
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!!
