Kellie's Pocket Page Notebook Perfect Flowers

2019-02-24 13.47.25

Hi there Fairytale Club peep, Kellie from Australia here with you today to share yet another pocket page notebook layout I created.  I've used the Practically Perfect kit that I can not get enough of.

With flowers, gingham and more what isn't to love!

I have a bunch of not printed photographs of flowers and I knew it was time to print a few off and use this kit.  I decided on this photo taken when the family and I went on a weekend getaway in 2017.

This layout just came together and I know I may have said that for all my project recently but they truthfully did and I've been in a bit of a crafty funk lately when it comes to documenting, so this is such a nice change.

For this layout I used the gingham 12 x 12 pattern paper that I cut to size.  then I got all the embellishments out and layered until I was happy with the added touch of the typewriter journalling.BAM layout complete, memories kept and in the books.

Kellie's Pocket Page Notebook Tee Love Layout

2019-02-24 13.50.52

Hi there Kellie with you here today to show you a pocket page notebook layout I created using the You + Me collection that I absolutely love.


2019-02-24 13.50.52

Loving the way this layout came together.  I have a pocket page notebook that is mainly based on the purchases I've made, one I keep from my husband obviously, haha.  This is actually a photo of a tee I brought some time ago and I still love it and it's still one of my favourites.  Because of this I knew that the You + Me kit would be perfect for this layout.  That rose is just stunning and as much as I really wanted to hoard it, I used it instead.

2019-02-24 13.50.52

I mean honestly crafty peeps, how cute are those hearts!  I started by knowing what photo I was going to use for the layout. After that it's a matter of going through the kit and often picking out my favourites and that pile can be a little high, haha and then narrowing down what matches in with the photo. Because the tee was black made it easy, what doesn't go with black?  Exactly nothing, right?


2019-02-24 13.50.52

Pink, red and blue/teal worked so well together and I already have another idea in mind with plenty left for another layout. 

 

What have you created with your You + Me kit?

Carrie's Sunshine & Snow Project Life Spread

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-01-Final.png

Hello Everybody, Carrie here with a February spread in my Project Life album. I used the gorgeous Practically Perfect Kit and gave it a bit of a love theme for February. We’ve been coated in a bunch on snow here in Seattle the last couple weeks which is not normal, so I wanted to make sure to document some of our snow days. These photos are a little over a week old and we have so much more snow now it’s crazy. The photos from this day in particular are some of my favorites because of the snow and sunshine together, as well as my daughter playing in the yard with one of our dogs.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-02.png

To begin this spread I quickly decided on using a pocket page of three 4x6 inch photos. I placed the photo of my daughter in the middle and cut two 4x6 inch cards from one of the 12x12 inch floral papers. The floral paper cards I added to the pockets above and below my photo. Next I decided to use two sizes of heart shaped dies and cut a bunch of hearts out of solids sections of paper from some of the planner inserts.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-04-Final.png

I layered the die cut hearts together on the floral cardstock both above and below my photo. To give them a little dimension I used red line tape at the bottom of each heart and a thin foam adhesive at the top.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-05-Final.png

As a final touch for this side I used the “superclifragilistic” and “expialidocious” stickers from the sticker sheet and added them with a thin foam adhesive. To give a little more interest I decided to place one on my photo and the other on the paper below.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-06.png

On the opposite page I started out by adding the “s” and “p” in Pink Paislee Thickers to one of the 2x3 inch photos (it’s a photo of snow), to identify my daughter and our dog. I used the same pink paper as one of the heart dies to fill in the empty space of the “p” because I feel like it makes the letters easier to read and I like the look. To help tell the story of my daughter’s relationship with our dog Ponyo, I also decided to use one of my small heart punches and punched out a heart from one of the same red papers as the other hearts. I used foam adhesive and placed it in between the two initials. To finish off this little 3x4 inch pocket I added the super cute yellow pom pom paperclip from the stationery pack. I love seeing these pom poms stick out of my albums.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-07.png

Once I had the rest of my photos placed for this 9x12 inch page I added the cute yellow quote card from one of the cut apart sheets in an empty 3x4 inch pocket. I could have left it just like that but thought that the two penguins reminded me of my daughter and Ponyo playing in the snow. Because I didn’t have a lot of space on the card I cut the smallest pair of penguins out of one of the cut apart sheets. I added them to the card with red line tape at the bottom and foam adhesive at the top. To help tell the story of the pair having fun I also placed the “yay” sticker from the sticker sheet, tucking one end under a penguin and popping up the other end with foam adhesive.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-08.png

I knew I wanted to add journaling to the last 3x4 inch pocket so I cut a notepaper card from one of the planner inserts. Typically I’ll add journaling using my typewriter, but this time decided that the photos told enough of the story that all I wanted to write was a descriptive title and the date. I used the same Pink Paislee Thickers for my text and used the same pink paper to fill in the empty spaces in the letters. To help tie in the floral paper I decided to add the red tulip die cut from the die cut pack, again only popping up the top with foam adhesive and tucking the bottom into the text. Since I thought the sunshine and snow were so pretty together I also placed the “wow” sticker from the sticker sheet above the flower using foam adhesive…..and that’s it!

Thanks so much for taking a look at my project and I’ll see you next time : ) Carrie

Kellie's 4x4 Mini Album Mini Layout

Hello everyone, it's Kellie here to share a mini layout I created in a 4x4 mini album using the Magical and Mischievous collection.  These little albums are the best for documenting your memories.  They can be used for the one theme or many.  I decided that since my girls are getting older I would use one to document all their book week dress up days.

2018-10-11 13.18.41

We don't celebrate Halloween in Australia, not like it's celebrated in the USA.  But my girls once a year have book week where they get to dress up as a book character. It's so much fun to dress them up and see how excited they are and now that I only have one of three daughters doing it, as one daughters has finished her schooling and the other started high school where they no longer take part in dress ups.  So I thought it was time to have them all in the one place, like a mini album.

2018-10-11 13.18.48

Do you know what I love about the Magical and Mischievous kit?  EVERYTHING.  The acetate sheet that comes with the kit is silver on one side and a purple on the back.  I used the purple as a backing the this little layout of my girls dressed up day from a few years back.  Harry Potter and a witch, the perfect match.

2018-10-11 13.24.23

I then layered around the instax photo with the die-cut shapes ephemera pack and used some left over strips from the card I made and shared previously strips.  I also used one of the little pom pom paper clips, HOW stickin CUTE are they?  I'm trying not to hoard the rest of the three from the packet of four.


2018-10-11 13.19.05

I grabbed a pocket that has 4 mini squares and cut up the 12x12 pattern papers and again used some of the die-cut shapes ephemera pack with a flair button.

October Daily Day 1 with Carrie, featuring "Magical and Mischievous"

Hello Everybody! Carrie here using the new “Magical and Mischievous” kit for scrapbooking day 1 in my October Daily!! This is my favorite and biggest project of the year! I do also participate in Andrea's Holidaily, however, my album for that is always much smaller since I don't take as many photos. October is my favorite month of the year and I take LOTS of pics this month lol!

For October 1st I have a bunch of photos of my front garden. I worked really hard on it this summer and didn't really get any photos of the garden in it's prime, so I wanted to make sure to cover all my bases and get pics of everything. The left side of the spread is just three 4x6 inch photos. The middle photo is cut in half since that's the format of page protector I chose. For the right side, I cut one of the 12x12 inch papers down to 6x12 inches and chose this AMAZING hand drawn spider web print for my background. I used my typewriter to add the journaling onto a 3x4 inch light pink notebook ruled card, which I cut from one of the planner inserts. I chose to use the typewriter since there was so much to fit into a small space. The card is slightly popped up using some foam paper and adhered with red line tape.

10082018-OctDaily-08.png

The "OCT" above the card are Thickers from American Crafts in the font Maggie. I love these for Halloween since they're black glitter with orange foam peeking through. To make the "OCT" stand out just a little bit more I added some purple paper cut from one of the planner inserts.

Below the journal card I used the square number 1 from the number cut apart sheet to label this as October 1st. I popped up the banner from the die cut pack that says "A Magical Day" just below the 1 with thin foam dots. The square number one is also slightly popped up using a little foam paper. To finish off this page and add a little more color and embellishment I tucked in three of the die cut leaves and called it good ; )

Since I have even more photos for Day 1, I decided not to exclude them and just add in another spread. For the left side I chose to use the backside of the spiderweb paper which is this gorgeous dainty orange floral. This fits in PERFECTLY with the theme of my garden photos....I LOVE IT! LOL! Anyways, first I added the "Home Sweet Home" title using the same Thickers. I used the same purple paper to back the empty space in the "O"s. Next, I added my 4x6 inch photo which is slightly popped up onto a thin foam paper. Then I added the silver foil "spooky" to change the saying to "Home Sweet Spooky Home."

Lastly, I layered two pumpkins from the die cut pack on top of each other and tucked them slightly under the "spooky". The way they're layered together almost looks like a rainbow which I think is super cute!

For the opposite page I used the flair button with the orange pumpkin face heart and placed it in the empty space of the bottom photo, in between our rain boots. The cute haunted house filler card from one of the cut apart sheets fit in perfectly with my "house" theme for this spread so I added it in the left center pocket. To add just a little dimension, I popped up the moon with bats from the die cut pack. For the center pocket to the right I made a shaker card using some of the sequin mix from the kit, as well as the three candy corn die cuts from the die cut pack. The see through effect is a favorite technique of mine. To finish this spread off I added the purple pom pom paper clip to the top photo. It looks ADORABLE popping out of the top of my album!! I will probably use all four in this project because it's so cute!

Thanks for taking a look at my project, and I'll see you next time for more of my October Daily! : ) Carrie

Aimee's "Tiki, i love you" Embellishment Pocket Page

Aimee here, sharing a pocket page using the “Tiki, I love you” kit.

mermaids 1.jpg

I love pocket pages. They are so fun and easy to make. I personally like using baseball card holder’s ones. They hold instax photos perfectly. Well the slots are larger than an instax, so the photo kinda just floats in it.

Here I have made a page without any photos. This is a first for me. But I thought this would be so cute in my album.

Let me tell you about my album real quick. I have an 8.5x11 album, that I use just for pocket pages. This is because I only make a few pocket pages a year. So, I have dividers in the book with the years on them. And when I make a pocket page I just pop it in the album chronologically. This is my very own version of “project life”. This page will get slipped into the summer of 2018, since that’s when this kit is from {really there are no rules}.

I filled the pockets with some of my favorite ephemera from the kit. I added some sequins to one of the pockets, die cuts and flair to the others. I fused them closed and then I stitched “Mermaids” on top of the pockets.

This is a really fun way to use all those extra bits and pieces!

Do you make pocket pages?

XOXO Aimee
