Playing with Pocket Life with Olya

Hello, Citrus Twist lovelies and happy Friday!
Today I'm sharing 3 Pocket Life layouts I did for Daisy's (my bunny) album. Yes, she has her own 6x8 album. She is my heart and soul, and knowing that, unfortunately, she won't live forever I'm trying to document her life as much I can now, so I can re-live the happy memories of her later.
Mushiness aside, here are my pages:
I used pocket page protectors by Simple Stories with different size pockets. The July PL embellishment Add-On had a variety of 2x2, 3x3 and 4x4 papers that I coordinated for these layouts. All the papers went nicely together because of their bright summer colors and light style, which made them easy to embellish with enamel dots, wood veneers and puffy stickers.
Here is a close up of the amazing stamp in the July PL kit designed by the lovely April Hill. Can we just take a moment to marvel in her beautiful calligraphy? I know I'll be using that stamp over and over in my pages.
The next two page layouts have similar story- more photos of my Daisy bunny being her cheeky self, more different size pockets, more fun little papers and embellishments from the July kits.
I wanted to match the pretty teal paper under "Like a Boss" photo with the journaling on the opposite page. I applied the alpha stickers from the Add-On kit on the paper, painted teal acrylic paint over them, waited impatiently for the paint to dry and when it did I carefully peeled the stickers off. So it ended up being a negative journaling showing through the missing paint.
Well, that's all for now, friends.
Happy summer weekend to you all, hope you can squeeze some crafting in there too!


  1. I love your bunny! She is adorable! The layouts are beautiful! :)

  3. your bunny is adorable! mine is too shy so I can't pick her up and cuddle :( .. so I'm a bit jealous! :)

    1. Thank you, Lucia! don't feel jealous, most bunnies are shy. Daisy is more like a dog, always in your face and up to no good :)
