Hello friends! Lorilei here today with a new scrapbook layout using Vicki’s Wildflower & Honey collection! This week I was given a pocket page assignment and might have gone a bit off the plot. Instead of using a pocket page, I made pockets for my layout!
I started my page by making three pockets from the striped Sweet Honey paper. My pockets are 3.25″ wide by about 3.75″ high. I folded over 1/2″ on three sides to form a simple pocket. I chose a 12×12 paper from Vicki’s pre-made Mixed Media paper pad in the pretty blue with gold foil splatters for my background. The rope around my fence post in the photo was the reason I selected a blue background!
I added the three pockets to the center of the paper and offset them a little bit. It was super fun to fill the pockets; I used notecards from the ephemera pack, journal cards I trimmed from the cut-apart Mingle paper to slip inside the pockets. I added one of my photos to the middle pocket and also added a photo on top of the middle pocket. I had some fussy cut flowers left over from my last scrapbook page, so I added one to each of the side pockets.
I chose some more die cuts to add to the outside of the pockets, and for each new die-cut, I added some foam behind it for lots of dimension! In the right pocket, I added two of the super sweet flowers, and a leaf die cut tucked under the label on this pocket.
Since most of the work was done for me, by using a pre-made mixed media paper, I added some little strips of Wildflower & Honey washi tape under each pocket and some holographic black star stickers for a bit of sparkle! I used a variety of chipboard and sticker sentiments to embellish the labels and tabs on the page.
Thank you for joining me today! If you’ve never added a pocket to your layouts, you might want to give it a try! They are fun to add all kinds of items too and a great place for secret journaling!!
