We’ll show you a few additional projects to give you plenty of inspiration. Vote on your favorite in the comments.
Don’t wait until the last minute! The Pockets & Lockets sale will close at 11:59pm central on Thursday November 30th. Please keep in mind our office is closed at 6pm central during the week. We are unable to assist order placements after that time.
Let’s get crafty!
Birthdays come up all the time. There’s always a birthday coming up you may need to shop for. Plan ahead and grab the lockets and Journey Advent Boxes now while they are on sale.
We created our featured project for a young birthday girl. It’s pretty and sweet just like her. First we started with a dainty Doily Die at the front. Then a strip of Beach Ball Cardstock and a strip of a coordinating print from the Party Pop Prints Pack. You’ll notice we alternate between Whip Cream and a Beach Ball color as we add more elements. This color contrast really makes the project striking and pretty.
After a Whip Cream Heart-Felt Die, add Beautiful Wings. Stamp the splotchy butterfly in Beach Ball Ink and the outlined butterfly in Black Licorice Ink over it. Give it gloss with Journey Glaze and slightly bend the wings with a Bloom Tool to give the illusion of motion.
Before you tie the box closed with Special Day Organza and Beach Ball Satin Ribbon, customize your locket gift to place inside.
We wanted to give our locket a similar look. We grabbed a Sparkled Round Locket (large) and placed a Turquoise Accent Plate inside. Next, place a decorative piece over the color plate. This can be a crafting piece. You can also choose our decorative plates that are already completed. We choose the featured Filigree Butterfly accent to coordinate with our box. The Filigree Butterfly is shaped like a dome already, so you won’t need a Locket Kit or Dome Kit. It’s great too because it’s outlined so the Turquoise Accent will really pop!
Present your locket on any of our chains. For this particular project with a simpler style, we chose the dainty Beaded Ball Chain.

The great thing about our lockets and pocket dies – you can use any of our stamps and accessories to decorate them. Give your pocket and locket an artsy feel with the Ornamental Dream Stamp Set.
Give your project striking contrast. Stamp the detailed image on Whip Cream Tag and emboss in Journey Black Embossing Powder. Then stamp and emboss your sentiment in Journey White Embossing Powder on the Black Licorice Note Pocket.
Customize your Sparkled Tower Locket to coordinate with this striking pocket. Use the same stamped image to place inside.
Your gift recipient will be amazed at your creative talents.

Say Thank You
Customize a locket for a thank you gift and shower your friend or family member with love!
Yes, you can still personalize the small Round Lockets. They may be small, but we have plenty of small sentiments in our Expressions section of the catalog. Grab the Te Amo (I Love You) stamp from the Text Happy Stamp Set. We used a very small strip of Whip Cream Cardstock for this sentiment and placed it on a multi-color background.
To create your locket background, first grab a small Accent Plate. For this project we are using the Bubble Gum Plate. Adhere alternating color strips to the accent plate creating a mini circle. Add a few die cut hearts. Close your pieces in with the Dome Kit. Connect your locket to any of our chains, like the featured Ball Chain.
Present your personalized locket with a special treat bag. The featured Clear Bags are not on sale, but they are still great to use. Make them sparkle with stunning Simply Gold Journey Tape and a Journey Gold Embossed ‘Thank You’ sentiment.
