Pocket Life Sketch Friday

Hi everyone! It's Trina here today sharing some simple pages I've made for my pocket life album this month. I'm working with the August "Kaleidoscope" pocket page scrapbook kit and August Embellishment kit.

Here is my finished spread:

Here are your PL sketches for the week. We have one for a 4-pocket pocket page and another for a 6" x 8" mini scrapbook layout, so all of our scrapbookers and pocket page scrappers can find something to use here:

Now onto more photos for the sketch. I love the new Dear Lizzy Saturday puffy stickers. They are adorable! The heart cut file is part of our free cut file for the month that you can download over on our Facebook Citrus Twist Kits Fan Page.

Close-ups next!

I used a script font to cut the word "weekend" out on my silhouette. I wanted a title that was script-looking that would fill the width of my page. See that soft yellow acrylic paint? That was used to cover up some journaling that smeared badly. I painted over it using my Illustrated Faith Paint Card (any credit-type card will word) to spread the acrylic evenly. Afterwards I journaled on one of the cutaparts from the August kit and stapled it over the yellow paint.

I don't shy away from working with a mistake on an almost-finished page! The Nuvo Crystal Drops in Buttermilk (a must-have Nuvo color available in our Shop here) were perfect little enamel dot additions that I applied directly on my layout over and around the yellow acrylic paint. 

I saved the cut out heart fills from the cut file to use as templates to cut the pattern paper to put behind  the outlined hearts. The last think I did before applying the Nuvo onto my page was stitch some of the cut out heart fills down on my page:

Here is a close-up of my pocket page. The rainbow-striped card and yellow "A History of Magic" strip are from this month's Sprinkles kit (now sold out), from Crate Paper's new Cute Girl Ephemera. 

Next, I kept my journaling simple for the pocket page using my retro typewriter and the PL kit stamp:
