Hi there friends. Have you been enjoying the amazing November kits?  Kimberly and Kim have really excelled themselves with all the lovely designs and gorgeous patterns.  Today, I have a new layout to share with you using the ‘B’ sides of the papers.

When I first looked through the papers for the challenge, I wasn’t sure which were the B sides – do you remember ‘Double-A side records’? Well that is exactly my thoughts on the papers.  So I have chosen the side with smaller patterns and the patterned strip at the bottom.

I do love a little pocket for hidden journaling or ephemera.  I created a fairly simple ‘envelope pocket’  which I have fastened with buttons and string closure.  This template will give you a good idea of how to create one of your own:

The design is easily adapted to suit your own needs.  Just remember to sew on the buttons before sticking down the sides.  Alternatively you could use a magnetic or velcro closure instead.

For the rest of the layout, I’ve used those gorgeous B sides of the papers and stitched around the edges for added detail.  I tucked in one of the chipboard frames from the Main November kit over a handmade tag before adding on a puffy sticker.  Those gorgeous wood veneer cookies (also from the main kit) are so delightful! I added a little puffy dot sticker to the centre of this one.

To balance out the colours, I used the black and white striped paper to make a banner – I love the contrast with the red and mint.  You can see I topped off the banner with some of the beautiful flower die-cuts, leaves and acetate elements.  Don’t they look amazing?!

Finally, the title is a mixture of the puffy stickers from Embellishment Kit together with the Chipboard title from the November Main kit.

I hope that you love the B sides as much as I do and perhaps try out a pocket for one of your pages.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I will take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  Let’s hope that 2021 brings us a brighter outlook!
