I am a simple gal at heart.
I love pretty paper. And color. And words.
The pocket page I chose to share with you today has all of those things, and makes me smile when I look back at it.
This is a win-win in my book. :)
Made with the June Gossamer Blue kits, I love that this spread occurred in January...but doesn't feel like 'winter' at all. I fell in love with the Jillibean Soup die cut 3x4 cards, but decided to use them as more of an embellishment by pairing them with my $2 gold Sharpie marker that I picked up at Staples. They come as a nice bright white in the package, which I prefer because then you can mist/paint/ink/stamp/emboss them any color you like. More bang for your buck that way!
I can't stress enough while teaching about pocket page layouts that it is perfectly OK to just fill a pocket with pretty paper...no need to stress or over think how to fill each spot. The top left 'daydreamer' card is an example of this: I just used a phrase stamp + some drops of gold spray ink to add some color, because I absolutely loved that card...if it were bigger, I would frame it and hang it on the wall! The Chic Tags sheer alphabet and Evalicious puffy stickers were fun to add some interest, and something I am not able to find locally so I love that they were included in my kit this month!
Pretty paper + color + words.
This one makes me happy.
