This is the second post by our guest blogger Charity Donaldson about her passion for printables and cut files...
In case you missed her first post, you can find it here.
On to using the fabulous printables on a pocket page! This is the “sister” page to the last layout I made, and I actually created this one the same day I created the other layout using Show and Tell! I want to mention for just a moment that the 12x12 page took me a LONG TIME! I kind of knew when I started that I wanted to use lots of frames in layers and in some sort of clustery type layout... but when I started on this pocket page it was SO FAST!! I used the 12x12 as my inspiration and used a 4x6 scrap of paper that was left over from my layout, reprinted some of the printables from Show and Tell and got started! This 4x6 is the one I made from that leftover scrap of paper, I loved using the notebook punch again to echo where I used it on the facing page and used that Wonderful Moments printable to bring in more orange (see the orange peeping over the punched edge).
Doodling around the border sometimes feels like a good way to frame out things so I used a white Signo pen around the edges of this black card, I used a pinkfresh arrow and some printables to accent the two photos of my lovely godchildren and their awesome parents.
This card with my goddaughter is simple and awesome... it combines a printable with a diecut file (I used my Cameo to adjust the size for the pic) a cut apart and some awesome embellies from the kit: an acetate piece, a 3x3 card, a puffy sticker and a 4x6 card!
The row of 3x4 cards is fairly simple and holds a lot of journalling and a terrible phone photo of a terrific dessert. My fav in that row is the 3x4 card from the kit that includes a printable and some of the diecuts along with an acetate shape and an epoxy sticker. It is so bright and happy and makes me smile!
I find it really hard to get a good pic when they are all in a page protector (btw I love using the ones from We R Memory Keepers in case you were wondering) but here is a shot showing the whole thing put together.
Thanks so much for lettiing me share with you today. They look so nice side by side in the album and it helps me include more stories and pictures while not feeling like I have to scrap a 12x12 for stories that don't take up that much room... and it's fun to get creative on a smaller scale. It's something I'm doing more and more.
Thanks, Charity for another great post inspiring us to use our digital files over and over again!
