A New Shiney Pocket Page

Hey everyone!

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.

DSCN3937Even 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 😦

Happy Scrapping!!!

A Things That Shine Pocket Page

Hi everyone!  Today I’m excited to share with you my very first pocket page and I created it with items from Ashley Calder and the Things That Shine Kits.

When I look at Ashley’s kits I see so many possibilities: traditional layouts, cards, art journals, Project Life, etc.  Even though I don’t do Project Life I am intrigued by the process and have wanted to try some pocket page scrapping for myself.  I had recently done two layouts from the same camping trip, but I still had some photos left that I really liked.  One layout #catch was for JBS and the other You Love to Camp was for Things That Shine, so I blended the look of both layouts using mostly items from the First Days of Summer kit and the Electric Blue and Neon Green Color packs and created and insert using the Becky Higgins Design A pocket page.

Here’s the front:DSCN3777

Here’s the back:

Details:DSCN3786This super cute camera stamp, star and green washi is from the First Days of Summer kit.  I love this little camera and stamped it on some patterned book print paper to give it more texture and depth.  I adhered the star to the outside of the pocket page.

I created some of the 3×4 cards with leftover patterned paper from the two original layouts.  This is a sort of a title card with thickers and stitching around the edges.

This corrugated tag and colorful twine is from the First Days of Summer kit.  It lays over and envelope (also from the kit) that you can see from the other side.  I was so excited to make a see through shaker pocket which you can see a peak of here. It contains sequins from the Electric Blue Color pack.

Here is that pretty envelope from the First Days of Summer kit.  I just trimmed it so it would fit the pocket and stitched the bottom closed.  It holds the business card from the candy store I refer to in the journaling.  I added three gems from the Neon Green Color pack to the fun shaker pocket.

This pretty little fabric heart is from the First Days of Summer kit.  I added it to the outside of the pocket and I just love the dimension it brings to the page.

This tag, thread, and this sweetest little camera charm also comes in the First Days of Summer kit.  The 3 relates to the three trees and the journaling from above.

Here are the two layout this insert goes with.  I can’t wait to get them all together in my album.

I had so much fun doing this pocket page, I already have plans for another one.  With all the bits and pieces that come in the kits from the Things That Shine you can customize  and personalize pocket page filler cards that you have, make your own unique and beautiful cards, and embellish your photos.  Visit Ashley’s etsy shop by clicking here to see all the shiney goodness for yourself.

One last thing, I just have to give a shout out to Niru and Stephanie., two project lifers that I follow.  Their beautiful PL spreads are what inspired me to try pocket page scrapping for myself.  Yay!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and see ya soon for more shiney projects!
