It's Marie-Pierre here to share with you a full 2 page spread of pocket life scrapbooking! Only this time, I used my Scrapbooking and embellishment kits! You can't really go wrong when you decide to go for the Citrus Twist kits, they are all so versatile and full of goodness.
Here's a better view of the left page:
I'm in love with that birds paper from Maggie Holmes (Gather collection) so I included quite a bit of it all across my spread. I added the 2 words from the cut appart sheet and 2 puffy stickers.
In this pocket I used a neutral paper on which I could write my journaling and I decided to cover the bottom part of it to add some color (another patterned paper that I stitched to the first one) and I topped it with a bird that I've cut out of the pattern paper. I added a small adhesive brad in the top left corner. I added a brad to the top photo as well.
I added a small puffy heart here. Simple can often go a long way!
This is the right page:
I decided to play it soft, since my pictures had very dark colors.
I love to print my pictures in a 3x3 size and I then leave a white border around it. This lets me mount it to a patterned paper and it often gives me room to journal. This time though I decided to simply add a label on which I wrote the name of the place we were at. I did my journaling on a 3x4 card that you will see in a little bit. I stapled my label and added a puffy heart. 2 Patterned papers, one label and a puffy sticker. Doesn't get more simple than this. It's classy and soft. i like it.
I wanted to play with the really cute confetti mix I got with my kit. I used a die cut and filled a pocket. I will close it with my fuse tool once I know what I want to add on the other side of the pocket. Right next to that filled pocket, I used a piece of very subtle patterned paper. I decorated it with a label (for the tile) and another bird cut out of the Maggie Holmes patterned paper. I also kept one pink star to add there on the card next to the filled pocket.
This photo was already pretty busy but I still added some element of declaration: 2 round shaped embellishments and 2 stars. A little bit of stitching too.
Finally here's my journaling. I really love to use patterned papers to write my journaling on vs. white card stock. The color is always a nice addition to my spread.
Now, here's the sketch I created based on my spread. If you want you can play along with us and use the whole sketch or just part of it if you work with a smaller album. For a chance to win, upload your project to the Facebook Fan Page or the Citrus Twist Kits gallery by Friday October 21. Don't forget to include PL 10/14 in your title.
