Double Pocket Page Share // Aquarium & Zoo Recap

September 21, 2017

Welcome back crafty folk! Today I am sharing another double page spread from my most recent travel album. I have several process videos for pages in this album already and I hope you get the change to watch a couple of them. My overall process for these pages remains the same with an emphasis on making the photos the focus, but a little extra embellishments won't hurt anything. Let's dive in to today's project.

I paired two different styles of Simple Stories 6x8 pocket pages. The one on the left features three pockets while the right page features six different pockets. I wanted a majority of the space to be photos as I had mentioned earlier, so I picked out some larger photos to recap the zoo and aquarium trips. I decided to do a yellow and blue themed page for this spread.

My left page, has one focus picture. I'm not entirely sure if people would be able to tell what this was a photo of, but I think once I fill in the journaling card it'll make more sense. Now, for all of you wondering, this is a photo in the aquarium tunnel underneath the polar bear habitat. This little fella decided to just sit on top of the tube while we were under it. The curved glass distorted the picture slightly, but you can still see his huge paws.

The journaling card that I plan on capturing this moment with is from K&Company's Smashbook collection. I really like how it is set up like a MadLibs. I'm still thinking of the perfect adjective to go in the blank space. I decorated this card slightly by using a blue puffy asterisk from Fancy Pants.

One of my favorite parts of this double page spread (besides the photos) is the clustering down on the photo here. I used various shades of blue to make it all work with the water in the background. I used some chipboard pieces from AliExpress, a wood veneer from Studio Calico, a puffy sticker from Target dollar spot, a couple of enamel dots from Echo Park, and a sparkly glitter heart from Heidi Swapp. 

That little sparkly heart corresponds with this fun glittery title. This phrase "life is good" is from the same Heidi Swapp sticker set. I placed it on top of a journaling card from We R Memory Keepers. I also included a small Jillibean Soup label sticker for an extra little something.

The second side of this layout features a lot more photos. I still have leftover photos from this excursion so I think I'll need to create a pocket for the very back of the book to include all of the extras. I picked out my large photos first and decided to leave those pockets plain. Then, I found some photos that could be cut down easily to fit in to the 2" x 2" pockets. Once all of the photos were cut, I moved on to filling in the empty spots!

I used a piece of patterned paper from Pink Paislee's Citrus Bliss collection for this filler piece. I topped it with a puffy sticker from Pink Paislee's C'est La Vie collection. I paired that with another asterisk and glitter heart. My last filler card is using a light blue patterned paper from Kathy Davis. I used some Jillibean Soup stickers and an Amy Tangerine puffy sticker to add some details. That finishes up this double page spread. I hope you enjoyed seeing all of these fun zoo pictures. Thanks for stopping by!
