Pocket pages are supposed to be simple; put a piece of paper in a plastic pocket with some photos and writing and you’re done. While the overall project would get done and done quicker, would it get done so that I would like it in the end?
For me, the Devil is in the Details. The letter stickers, fussy cut heart from one of the 6 x 6 papers and ephemera flag work together to create a corner of happiness in this layout.
I used the packaging from the Elle’s Studio ephemera pack and turned up the corner on this card. A large print, small print and stripe are always a winning combination.
This card I decided to fringe this paper a bit thinking the pocket page could use a little texture. I know it would not be at it’s full potential since it will be placed in the pocket but it really will make a difference in the long run.
Using the cut aparts to journal on the picture, which is mounted on a ‘little moments” paper, is quick way to add a specific thought to a picture. Attaching it with stamps adds another layer of love!
Honestly, I have never used completely clear acrylic die cuts. As for the ones from JellyBean Soup included in the kit, I added a special touch to it to make them sparkle! (I’d love to spill the beans but I’ll show you how I did that on June 2nd!)
Finally adding something bold, like the family sticker to draw you eye to the picture below, is always a favorite trick of mine! Now, try imagining this layout with 5 plain pieces of paper. See?!
I totally appreciate you stopping by. Until next time….

Wow, what a fab PL layout. Love all your ideas, I’ve been looking at that same piece of packaging and thinking I should do something with it! I too like to pack my PL with extra little detail, so this has given me lots of ideas. Thank You ☺️
