Double Pocket Page Share // Lovely Creatures

October 24, 2017

Hello everyone! Can you believe that we're nearing the end of October? I'm avoiding thinking of cold, dreary weather by scrapbooking about more tropical times. Today I am sharing a photo heavy pocket page spread for another portion of my Pittsburgh travel album. Hard to believe that these exotic birds are there in Pittsburgh! You can find these fine feathered friends at the National Aviary. Let's dive right in to the colorful pocket page spread. 

I chose two different style pocket page styles from Simple Stories. As I have said before, I find that the Simple Stories pocket pages are oversized. For example, a 3" x 4" pocket, leaves a 3" x 4" card swimming with space. While the extra space doesn't bother me, it could be annoying to others.

The left page of this spread is completely photos. I tried to get a mix of colors without overwhelming the page. All of these birds pictures on the left side were in the same room. Since they were in the same setting, they have similar lighting an backdrops which helps the eye meld them together and make it more cohesive.

This is one of my absolute favorite filler cards I have made in a while. I started by cutting a 4" x 6" card from Kaiser Craft's Finder's Keepers collection 6x6 pad. This lovely blue pastel background is great for the beautiful die cuts on top. These die cuts were a lucky find from Recollections at Michael's. They are actually from a banner kit and I simply use them as regular die cuts. I layered a simple white doily behind them for a fuller base. I made a title using an American Crafts chipboard script word and some Oriental Trading box letter stickers.

To complete this card I used some Fancy Pants puffy circles and a Studio Calico wood veneer bird. Lastly, I sprinkled gold Heidi Swapp color shine along the outskirts. I haven't been using my mists as often as I would like and this is a good start to get back in to it. The rest of this page consists of 2x2 bird pictures. I hope you enjoyed this pocket page share! If you have any questions please let me know and I would be happy to answer them. Thanks for stopping by!
