Pocket Life Sketch Friday

Hi there Pocket Lifer's! It's Trina here today to share your Friday PL sketches. I kept this page pretty simple and centered the entire layout around the vellum pocket in the center of the page.

I pulled product mostly from the April PL kit and couldn't resist using some of the new Citrus Twist Kits/Pinkfresh epoxy stickers, too. I also used sequins and acrylic hearts from the April Sprinkles kit.

I just had to play with the new Becky Higgins roller phrase stamp! I like how many different uses I'll be able to get out of the stamp:

Here is a close-up using one of the phrases and one of the patterned lines from the new Becky Higgins stamp:

My 9x12 page was built around this homemade vellum pocket. I made it by cutting two pieces of vellum to 3x4 inches each and stitching the vellum together on three sides. Next I used my StazOn ink to stamp on the vellum, positioned one of the (adorable!) Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine epoxy stickers, then stitched the top shut. (See my challenge to you below!):

I used some woodgrain paper from Amy Tangerine Rise & Shine to create the background for my title card. Two alphabets in this month's PL kit made it fun to mix and match a title, plus I picked one of the stamps from the Becky Higgins roller stamp:

Couldn't stop myself from doing a little layering! I keep a stash of grid paper and vellum in my craft room to help build up the layers, plus threw in that bright Amy Tangerine triangle paper:

Here are your sketches, plus I have a challenge for you! Make your own vellum stitched pocket for one of your pages this month.

Thank you for visiting our blog today!

    1. I never thought to make one of my own, Maren. It was beyond easy (as long as you have a sewing machine!)

    1. Hi Becky, Yes! We just got these in at Citrus Twist. They'll be going into the store in time for pre-sale for May.

  4. Thanks for answering! Hopefully there will be some left when non subscribers are allowed to shop! I think that is an awesome stamp and your use of it is fantastic!!!
