Pocket Life Sketch Friday

Hi and Happy Friday! It's Tara here sharing my take on Pocket Life sketches. I decided to go with the 6x8 album size for my Project Life this year, which allows me to incorporate mini layouts and pocket pages. This is my first year to do Project Life and I thought this would be a great way for me to finish the year off in a manageable size. For these layouts I used the June PL kit, Splish Splash add on kit, and Sprinkles kit found here.

Read below for details on our weekly giveaway associated with today's sketches!

Here are your sketches starting with the 6x8 mini layout:

Next are two 3x4 sketches for your pocket pages:

Finally, here is a 4x6 card:
Here is my 6x8 mini layout documenting our last summer camping trip of 2014 in New Mexico. I added my own DIY enamel dots made from perler beads.

Here is my pocket life page that goes right beside my mini layout in my album:

And here are a few close ups. I added some alphas from my stash for my title. The labels are always perfect for touches throughout a layout!

I wanted to add some hand stitching to give this layout more dimension and something to pop with the patterned paper edge.

All the small pops of color from the Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss paper pads are perfect for summer! I can't get enough of the Evalicious puffy stickers and Crate Paper Poolside ephemera pack either! So many ways to use them to add a little something to your spreads. I love stamps and always try to find a way to add in some stamping - I just inked up "FUN" from the stamp phrase "DO FUN STUFF" to add a bit more on the corner of some ephemera.

 I am loving the gold alphas from the Sprinkles kit and the teeny heart wood veneers from the Splish Splash add on kit.

Don't forget to post your PL layouts in the gallery using today's sketches for a chance to win some happy mail! Label your sketch PL 6/12 in the gallery and post by Friday, June 19th. The winner will be announced here on the blog later this month.

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely weekend!
Xxo, Tara
