Good Day! The picture captured of my granddaughter on a walk in January was perfect for my 2015 introductory layout in the album.
I decided to use some of the 3 x 4 pocket cards in this collection to create a journal pocket and tag. The first card (back of pocket) was cut to 2 1/2" x 4" with the top edges angled. I wanted some of the wording on the tag insert to show so I cut the front card "happy, crazy, life" down to 2 1/2" height. The side edges (1/4" per side) were folded to tuck behind the back card forming a pocket. The inserted tag was cut down to 2 14" x 3 3/4" with the top edges trimmed to form a tag. A chipboard embellishment from the collection was added at the top of the tag insert.
I also used pocket cards on the layout in the following ways:
The title "Our Journey" was cut from a 4 x 6 journal card using my Silhouette.
The "Hello 2015" circle embellishment was punched from a 3 x 4 card.
The green strip (left side strip) on the banner was cut from a 4 x 6 journal card.
Supplies used on this layout:
Simple Stories Life Documented collection, including chipboard pieces and enamel dots.
Simple Stories - Yellow Ombre cardstock from Good Day Sunshine Collection
Bazzill - White cardstock
Heidi Swapp spray mists - Navy, Mustard & Cherry
Layout Sketch Design - Debbie Sanders, Scrapbook Generation
My plan for this particular album is to use the 2015 Life Documented collection from Simple Stories to create a monthly traditional 12 x12 layout and pocket page.
Enjoy your day and Happy Creating!
