One of the new things is pocket letters!  They are fun easy.  When Canvas Corp Canvas Corp Brand CCB Creative CrewBrands asked the Creative Crew to create a project with “Pink and Blue,” I knew that I wanted to make something for babies!  Since new mothers have such an abundance (HAHAHAHAHA) of time I decided to make pared down baby book…for twins!

Canvas Corp Brands has incredible paper that is perfect for this.  The weight of the paper is luxurious without being too stiff.  I used a few their papers to create mini books for journaling, envelopes for 1sts, journaling cards, and photo mats.

While this is a condensed version of the old style baby book, it is something that *might* be possible for a mother of new born twins.  Or, at least, it might not be as outlandish as a 50 page book with lots of blank space to be filled in!

At the end of this article, you can Linkup your pocket letter (no backlinking) below if you want to WIN this Baby Book pocket letter!  Please only linkup if you are willing to provide me with your address.  Linkup ends on June 28, 2015 (11:55 pm).  I will announce the random winner on June 30, 2015 via Instgram.
