Hello friends! Welcome back, Candace here to share a new pocket life challenge. There are two things that I love to include on my pocket page spreads to add interest and extra space. First, I love to add inserts. I don't always need the additional space for photos or journaling but when I do I love the extra interest and space it gives me to tell our family's story. Second, I love to create my own filler cards using ephemera, stamps and alpha stickers. I love the custom look this gives my spreads. Even though many people will receive the same products, I love that my spreads will look different and custom when I create my own cards.
Here is a look at the spread I created using these challenge techniques.
On the left side of the spread I created my own title card and filler card using goodies and embellishments from the kit. Including the alpha this month that I am IN LOVE with!
On the right side of the spread I created another filler card using the same shape as the left side to create a repeated element across the spread. This will attract the eye to the same shape and add balance to the spread.
This week I had four photos of my boys that I really wanted to include so I decided to add an insert to the center of my spread. For my filler cards on the insert I wanted them to look clean and simple. I used plain white card stock as my base and added embellishments. I adore how these turned out!
Here are a few close ups of the filler cards that include lots of white space to balance out all the colors in the spread!
