As promised I’m here to share my second ever pocket page. This is a Design D pocket page from Becky Higgins. I just cut one side of the 4×6 pockets off to suit the amount of photos and cards I wanted to use. I made this insert to go between my last two Easter layouts, using the same Things That Shine Kits and other scrappy products. I used the Things That Shine Spring Showers kit, sequins from the Pops of Colour packs in neon pink and neon green, a hand painted tag from the Pop of Colour pack in neon yellow, a bit of washi from the Days of Summer kit, and one of Ashley’s gorgeous handmade feathers.
Here you can see I have two see through pockets. I made a shaker pocket with sequins and those super cute wood veneer umbrellas from the Spring Showers kit and stitched an arrow, cut from Echo Park patterned paper, on top of another page protector pocket. I handmade the 3×4 cards using patterned paper with a little misting, pink patterned fabric tapes from the Spring Showers kit, and stitched on sentiments cut from an Easter card sent from my mom.
Even though this is a pocket page I can’t seem to get away from making titles. At age 11 my son is still Lovin’ the Bunny and I wrote a little note to him about that in the top right 4×6 card that I made. I use this floral patterned envelope, tag, and lavender floss included in the Spring Showers kit for this secret journaling.
I love that the Crate Paper patterned paper I used for this card says Field Research in the top right hand corner. I thought it was a perfect background for notes and a taped on feather. And here is where I apologize for my lack of photography skills!!! I am having a tough time with the glare on the pocket pages and would love any suggestions for improvement and also I was experimenting with the size at which I was photographing my pages and I guess I went to small. Yikes…but I wanted to post it…You can always enlarge on your computer to get a better view and please feel free to ask if you having any questions about how I did anything or what supplies I used.
Here is how my Easter pages will go in my album:
Did you know Ashley sells washi tape by the foot in her Things That Shine shop? It is great to get a foot or two of a variety of tapes instead of having to by whole rolls that you never will use. I for one am loving this. Pop over to her shop and check out all the amazing patterns she has! Also, consider following me on Pinterest where you can see the current Things That Shine kits and bits I am using, my Things That Shine projects, and all sort of other of loveliness that catches my eye. 🙂
See ya next week with a new Shiney layout, that I have to reshoot 😦
