The colour palette for February's Pocket Life kit is SO lovely!! There are lots of bright (but not too bright) and cheery shades of blue and yellow and orange and pink. The most challenging part of putting together my spreads this month was trying to decide which side of the journaling cards to use because I really loved them both. Such a great new addition to the kits and I'm really happy with the quality of the heavier journaling cards!
I added little bits of machine stitching to a few of my cards this month for some added texture. I'm pretty tempted to hoard those die cut words, but did manage to get this one into my spread. I added just a little bit of purple watercolour paint to complement the colours in my photos.
If I had to pick my top 3 embellishments in the February kits, I'd have to include the word strips (there are some in the Maggie Holme's ephemera pack as well as the Citrus Twist exclusive cutaparts) because they're ALWAYS a favourite, the cork pieces (love cork!!), and the puffy stickers. And then I'd tell you to ask me again because I couldn't possibly leave the die cut words off the list...or the glittery ephemera.. and I'd pretty much keep going on and on and on.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and get some crafty time in!

I'm new tp scrapbooking with pocket cards and have a question that may be obvious to some. But how do you add text to the pocket cards? It looks like it was a typewriter!ReplyDelete
