Double Pocket Page Layout 6x8 // Start Here for the Aquarium

September 19, 2017

Hello crafty friends! I have very happy news to report! Today I am sharing my first scrapbook page done in my new place! While I am not settled in completely, my craft stuff is all over the living room, I am happy to touch my scrappy goodies again. This double page layout is another page in my Pittsburgh album. This is the section where we dive in to the aquarium photos! The aquarium is part of the zoo, so it isn't a huge jump to a different topic as my last pocket pages. I hope you enjoy!

My first page is a 4x6 with 2 3x4 pockets from Simple Stories. I filled these pockets with some of my photos from this day. I included a cute seal and some translucent jellyfish. I have found that Simple Stories pocket pages are not my favorite. These pockets are huge. Compared to Project Life sized pockets, these ones from Simple Stories have too much extra room.

I decided to only decorate one of these photos which happens to be the top one. There wasn't any particularly reason I chose the top photo, but I did like the layout of the white space on this photo. I used an Elle's Studio light blue label accompanied by a piece of Recollections washi tape to create a base for some cute embellishments. I added a Pretty Little Studio ampersand and an Amy Tangerine puffy camera sticker in the top left corner. To add a pop of color and shine, I used Paper studio enamel dots and a couple of Recollections self-adhesive gold sequins. In the opposite corner, I included an adorable seal puffy sticker! So, so, so glad I found it before I completed this page. I purchased a bunch of puffy stickers from the dollar tree earlier this summer. 

The second page is a full 6x8 page from Simple Stories divided in to one 4x6 and two 3x4 pockets. I used filler cards in the top two sections and a full photo in the bottom section. The bottom photo reads "beauty is so inspiring". I made that from Pretty Little Studio diecuts and some Studio Calico alphabet stickers. I added some more of the gold sequins for fun sparkle.

I suppose this would be considered my title card. I used a Heidi Swapp Project Life card from the Glitter collection I think and built it to work for me. I started by adding a Pink Paislee hello puffy sticker. The teal shade was too perfect not to include. I finished off my title using Heidi Swapp glitter alphabet stickers and October Afternoon tile alphabet stickers.

Lastly, I made a place to journal. This card is from We R Memory Keepers Typecast collection. I felt a little weird combining bright white and then this cream color, but it works. I included a chipboard heart as well. I hope you enjoyed this layout share. Thanks for stopping by!
