Playing with Pocket Life with Melissa

There's a party going on in the November Pocket Life kit this month- a Polka Dot Party, that is! This month's kit includes the 6x6 pad from Elizabeth Kartchner's latest addition to her Dear Lizzy signature collection with American Crafts, and Citrus Twist has paired up Polka Dot Party with our own exclusive Pocket Life card designs for a fun and unique kit.

At first glance Polka Dot Party is filled with pinks and is a bit girly, but I pulled the aquas, blues, and yellows from the collection along with just a couple of hints of that pink to show how you can get a totally different look from your 6x6 pad based solely on the papers you choose to use in your layouts.


The feather card is from Carta Bella's Wildflower collection, a brand new mid-season release, and that particular sheet of paper can be found in Citrus Twist's Main kit this month. The Main and Pocket Life kits are always perfect companions!


My absolute favorite exclusive card this month is the "You live but once, you might as well be amusing" quote that would be at home on pretty much any week of my album! I used it as the title card for this particular weekly spread and used the Basic Grey alphas from the Pocket Life kit to add the date.


The 6x6 pad also includes scaled-down versions of the same cut-apart sheets that are part of the 12x12 papers in Polka Dot Party, and their small size is absolutely perfect for adding little embellishments to the small pockets.



It's not a Pocket Life Friday around here without sketches, and I've got a shiny new set for you! You can either reference the image below, or you can download a PDF version here.
