Victoria Marie DT: Pocket Fun

I am very excited to be hosting my very first challenge for the  Victoria Marie Facebook Group Design Team. This weeks challenge and the first of it’s kind for the year is Pocket Fun.  I have created an Inspiration board with images from Pinterest to help inspire the Victoria Marie Facebook group members to join me in creating Pocket page spreads. To the left is the Inspiration Board I created and to the right is the pocket page spread I created.


I absolutely love to use pocket pages. I do not do Project Life so my main use for the pocket pages is for my vacation scrapbooking. As most memory keepers I usually snap hundreds of photos while on vacation. If I were to make a 12×12 layout for all of those photos I’d probably need to rent a house for my scrapbooks alone. What I will usually do is chose one or two of my favorite photos for each day of my trip and then the rest of the photos I will insert into Pocket Pages. Here is an example of what I mean. This is the layout I created for this challenge side by side with the 12×12 layout I made a few months back. They will sit next to each other in my album just like this.


As you can see I was able to use 12 photos on this double page spread. I really love how this turned out. I really like the colors in the Amy Tangerine Finders Keepers Collection. The fun bright blues and yellows were perfect for my photos. I also incorporated a few pieces of the Pink Paislee Atlas Ephemera Pack, some travel themed foam stickers from The Little Yellow Bicycle, Jolees airplane embellishments and American Crafts Cork Hearts. This was a fun spread to put together. There is a process video on my You Tube channel if you’d like to watch. Here is the link:
