It’s the last week for our Pockets & Lockets sale! All month we’ve posted gorgeous ways to customize your lockets and gift them for the holidays. This week we’ll finish off the promotion with creative ways you can use and gift the lockets all year long. Today, we have two pockets to celebrate beautiful friends.
The Double Pocket Die is one of our favorites from the sale. We’ve shown you a Christmas Cheer Double Pocket with a matching locket. Now, let’s take create for any occasion.
BEEautiful Double Pocket
Before attacking a project like this, think of a theme. Our theme today is beautiful and we wanted to use a fun play on words with the adorable bees from the Hello Lovely Stamp Set. With BEEautiful bees we definitely wanted bright flowers.
First, die cut the Double Pocket Die. This die set includes trims to decorate the pocket layers. We added a bright Canvas Prints top.
The bottom of the pocket has room for your dimensional imagery. Instead of stamping, we wanted to use our dies for a more life-like effect. We added leaves from our Dahlia Burst Die Set. Then we popped up blooms from the Star Burst Bloom Die Set. To really give them that flower bloom look, use our Bloom Tool to curl in the petals.
Add your bee image to the BEEautiful scene!
Then you create a coordinating tag to insert in your pocket with another bee image and your BEEautiful sentiment.
Of course it is the Pockets & Lockets promotion, so let’s create a locket to match our BEEautiful pocket.
Grab either our Solid Tower or Sparkled Tower Locket. Cut a piece of cardstock to fit inside the locket. Then stamp a coordinating image. We used the same Hello Lovely Stamp Set that we grabbed our bee from. This stamp set includes a pretty sunflower.
Stamp the sunflower on your cardstock piece and color it in with Journey Color Burst pencils. Then stamp and pop up your bee image to complete the theme.
Place your crafting piece on a Tower Accent place and close it into your locket. Your bee can poke out of the locket and fly free for a dimensional life-like effect.

Now, let’s take today’s keyword “Beautiful” and let’s create a Note Pocket with a coordinating Round Locket.
Instead of bees, we took more of an adorable, simple yet stunning approach to the word to create these projects.
For the pocket, use color contrasting for a pretty look. We love the Bubble Gum with Black Licorice. It’s elegant and very beautiful.
Add a piece Whip Cream Cardstock inside your Note Pocket. Decorate it with a fun simple pattern like polka dots using a small Dauber Dowel. Pop up your beautiful sentiment from the Hello Love Stamp Set.
Complete your project with a small Create a Bow – Mini Die – also on sale this month.
Next, create a customized locket to present with your beautiful pocket.
We purposefully slid our crafting piece of just a tad in the photo, so you can see the accent plate too. When you assemble your locket with your creative piece, you’ll want to place an accent plate inside. This way if the locket flips over while it’s worn, you can still see a pretty color instead of the back of a cut cardstock. For our locket we grabbed the Bubble Gum Accent Plate (large) to match our pocket.
For the creative piece, punch out a 1 ¼” circle punch from Lemon Drop Cardstock to fit into the large Solid Round Locket. We love colorful blooms to celebrate beauty. Stamp the small bloom from the Journey Emojis Stamp Set on Whip Cream Cardstock in alternating ink colors and pop them up on the Lemon Drop Cardstock. Add a fun sentiment to complete the piece.
Enclose your crafting piece with the accent plate and the Dome Kit inside the locket.
