Today I’m focussing on the Pocket Life kit. This kit is not only great for pocket pages or memory planners, but you can also use it in your layouts of course! I wanted to focus on the orange/pink colors in the kit.
I started with cutting all different cards in pinks/orange/yellows. Simply choose the ones that appeal to you on that moment (that’s how it works for me anyway).
Then I started layering. Pick a card, that you like behind your photo. It doesn’t have to back the entire photo. It’s mor fun when the cards overlap and don’t all match the photo. That way you create playful layers with more depth. I distressed the edges of the cards. As you see, I did some machine stitching on the photo. Just to add more detail to the project.
That darker apple paper (which is soooo pretty) was perfect to create a bit longer piece (almost like a banner) to make the bottom of the yellow background a bit more playful. I used that quote card “Keep Going, Keep Growing” as the title of the page. I used some wood buttons from the September Main kit , aren’t they gorgeous?? The die cuts from the September embellishment kit matched perfectly so I used them too and cut off most of the white around them. The mini puffy stickers from the embellishment kit are perfect to tug in between it all just to add more fun little elements.
I also really wanted to use that twine from the Main kit. It matched perfectly and I love to use all kinds of textures. Next to the machine stitching, that twine had to be part of this little project-family! So, I decided to create a little base/foundation for all the layering and simply made a little bow and placed it at the bottom of the yellow background. That gorgeous ombre yellow background is also from the Pocket Life kit!
I placed the centre piece on white cardstock (and also did some stitching on the white cardstock) and cut the cardstock 2″down to be able to create a border with the orange paper from the September Cardstock kit.
I hope you like it and get some inspiration to use your Pocket Life Kit in a different way!
