Pocket Page Spread with Gossamer Blue

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a pocket page spread with Gossamer Blue Life Pages Kit!

I haven’t created a pocket page in awhile so when I first pulled out my supplies I was a bit rusty, LOL!!  I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do or what photos to use.

So, I looked at the kit in its entirety and decided that I would let the journaling cards lead the way.

I loved all of the green color in the kit and I knew I could get photos with some green in it!

Take a look:

My one little word arrived so I knew I need to take a picture with it.  So I put on my green coat and went outside.  I am always behind the camera so its nice to be in front of it.

Note: I use my iPhone 6s Plus for most of my shot but for these photos I pulled out my Canon EOS 70D.

When I finished taking the photos, I sat down and put the page together.  I love the currently journaling card because I was working in the moment.  This wasn’t a planned page.  I added some simple embellishments from the kit for texture.

Perfect right!!  That was so easy to put together.

Do you create pocket pages? If not, will you start?  I would love to see them!!

What do you think about my pages?  I would love to know.  Please let me know below.

Aren’t these dies fantastic!!  This release is such a great release!

Here are some of my cards that I create for this release.

Thanks (TDD)

For this card, I used the Top Dog Dies Pretty Petals 2 Die and die cut the card panel and a watercolor panel.

Watercolor scrap

I adhered the watercolor flower to the card base. Then I used foam adhesive to attach the card panel.

I used Papertery Ink Enclosed: Apple Mini Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment in My Favorite Think Hybrid Black Ink.

I added a retired Stampin Up large rhinestone in the center.


Hello (TDD)

For this card, I used the Top Dog Dies Pocket Pages Banner Die Set  and Top Dog Dies Hello Die Set to create this card.

I die cut all of the pieces out of Snap Studio Just the Basics pattern paper and adhered them to my pocket page card.

To create this card, I just die cut my white cardstock using the two biggest die to create my card front and used only the biggest die for the back panel.

I attached the teal pattern paper behind the front card panel.

I scored a line to the top of the back card panel and added tape to attach the front and the back panel.  Since I added a score line the card can open.

I used Simon Says Stamps Lila’s Heart Stamp Set to stamp my sentiment.

Super cute.  Cute for a pocket page scrapbook too.


Wedding (TDD)Now this wedding card is the center of my giveaway which ends May 24th, 2015 at 11:59pm.

I created this card using Top Dog Dies Wedding Die Set and Top Dog Dies Pocket Pages Summer Die Set.

I’m giving away the Wedding Die to one lucky person who leaves me a comment on that blog post.

I die cut all of the pieces and adhered them to my card front using tape.

I used Simon Say Stamp Congratulations Stamp Set and stamped my sentiment.

I attached retired Stampin up clips to the top of the frame.

So what do you think?  I hope you enjoy what you see.

Guess what?
