I reached out to Cocoa Daisy a few months ago in the height of my planning/pocket letter frenzy and they were generous enough to send me their August 2016 Planner Kit on the house. Once I opened the package I was absolutely blown away. You can see the full unboxing HERE, if you like.
Everything inside the kit was so gorgeous that, once I set up my planner for the month, I couldn’t wait to use extras to whip up a pocket letter for a lucky someone. And I’ve gotta say, I am SO happy with how this little guy turned out. Everything in the Cocoa Daisy kits coordinates so beautifully. This makes putting together a pocket letter super easy. But there’s no shortage of choices. Prints, paper, stickers, die-cuts, washi, clips, and embellishments are all in abundance.
Do you die?! Because I die. Excuse me while I stare at this creation for the next hour or so!
Oh! And of course I couldn’t forget goodies to tuck into the back of each pocket…
Goodies from L – R
* Everything is from the kit unless otherwise specified.
- divider tabs
- sticky pad sample pages (from Target Dollar Spot) and To-Do banner stickers
- puffy stickers
- letter to recipient on a piece of coordinating stationery
- planner stickers
- washi samples (middle sample from Dollar Tree, bottom sample is Scotch brand from Office Depot)
- Equal Exchange tea (Equal Exchange website)
- 2 gift tags (from Ikea)
I wanted to utilize some of the great prints that came with the kit so I cut the two smallest options down to fit a pocket and kept their quotes as the focus. Two other pockets were cut from larger prints (the flower and the triangles) and two more came from a set of planner pages I didn’t end up using/ The black cardstock with diagonal stripes is from my own collection and I think it provides an interesting contrast. Everything else, except the small paperclips at the top, is from the kit!
Here are some details I love…
I love how well the Cocoa Daisy washi works with these other patterns I had in my collection.
And how cute is this GET IT DONE binder clip? The clips at the top help keep the goodies from falling out!
The kit made it super easy to layer lots of different elements. This pocket includes stickers and washi and EVERYTHING MATCHES. *heart eye emojis
And Lord, how I love a copper glitter tape…not to mention the sweet quote. Sigh. Cocoa Daisy you’ve really outdone yourself.
Do you love this pocket letter as much as I do? I can’t wait to send it off to a special someone. I hope it brightens their day!
Thanks Cocoa Daisy!
