VIDEO: Incorporating Memorabilia // 6x8 Pocket Page - Diner Receipts

February 11, 2017

Hello everyone and welcome back! I have a lot of exciting things to share with you over this weekend and this is just the start! I am sharing another component of my Incorporating Memorabilia series today and tomorrow I'll have an additional two process videos up! One is for my new role as a Design Team member for Wild Whisper Designs and the other is for a fun YouTube hop! If you want to see those as soon as they go live, be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel! Let's jump right into today's process.

This is actually a two page process video. I have an insert and a full sized pocket page. While the memorabilia is very small on this one, it still counts (in my book anyway)! I used Simple Stories SNAP page protectors for these two. I hope you enjoy my process video!

I have found that I like to keep my pocket pages simple. I don't know why, but too much stuff all over the place is too much for me. When working with such a small canvas, I like to have a balance between photos and filler/title cards. On this layout, I have two (kinda) title cards and one filler card, but I also embellish on some of my photos.

On the pocket page insert, I included one title card and one photo. The title card starts off with a base of blue DCWV cardstock cut to 3x4. Next, I pulled out a floral washi tape from Freckled Fawn and added a strip. I sifted through an October Afternoon die cut set and found this breakfast themed top note shape. I thought that the blank space on it between the "good morning" and the eggs and bacon was a perfect spot for a small title. I used a set of Heidi Swapp stickers to create it. To complete the insert, I slipped a photo of the menu into the second pocket.

For the main 6x8 page, I decided it would ideally feature the food we ordered. Since this page was 4 -3x4 pockets, I had to cut my 4x6 photo in half. I know this can sometimes bother some people, but it is perfectly fine with me. Since there was so much negative space on the photo, I used another October Afternoon die cut in the top left with some enamel dots. To balance that, I used an Elle's Studio die cut in the bottom right of the photo. As a side note, the pancakes there are awesome!

By far my favorite piece of this layout, besides the pancakes was this filler card. It came together so nicely in the end! I started with an Elle's Studio 3x4 card from their Let's Eat collection. I added some gray floral washi and a strip of DCWV mustard cardstock to add a pop of color. Then, I layered a Doodlebug doily and an Elle's Studio tag on top of that! I didn't have the perfect colored twine to go through the tag hole at the time, but I plan on adding something there later.

My incorporation of memorabilia on this layout was simple, but makes it more authentic feeling. I had this guest check die cut piece from October Afternoon and had to use it on this diner page. Of course, I couldn't just slip it in a pocket and be done, I had to add part of our own receipt on to it! So with careful cutting, I added out little receipt tab on to the fake receipt. It's a cute and small memento that will probably fade over time, but again, it's about the authenticity. I plan on writing what we actually ordered on to the guest check as well.

I am still really loving this 6x8 size. It's fun and simple to work with. I hope you enjoyed this episode in my Incorporating Memorabilia series! I will have more videos coming soon! Thanks for stopping by!
