Aimee combined her love of pocket pages with her love of traveler’s notebook spreads!
“I love pocket cards! I even love to use them in traveler’s notebook-sized albums and page protectors. When I saw the “Today’s good mood” 3×4 card from the Doodles and Dashes Modern Memory Keeping Kit I knew it must be used and it sparked the whole inspiration for this layout.
For the left side of the page, I used the washi tape from the Doodles and Dashes Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit to create a skinny border along the top and bottom of the page. I decided to use two of the black Instax-sized frames to hold my photos and lined them up in the center. To embellish alongside my photos I added some subtle stamping with the doodle circle stamp from the Traveler’s Notebook Memory Keeping Kit and then layered a puffy leaf sprig sticker over top. I kept each photo’s treatment the same to keep some continuity within the spread.
I decided I wanted to cut up one of the Modern Memory Keeping Kit 3×4 cards to use as embellishments so I trimmed out the little squares and roughed them up with the edge of my scissors and used them as I would typically use diecuts! I love the result of that.
Next, I made sure to add my journaling and a splattering of Heidi Swapp gold color shine to my filler card. Now all that’s left to do is slip everything into their designated pockets. I love how wonderfully simple pocket cards can be but also how much extra time you can spend dressing them up or even turning them into something else entirely! The possibilities are endless.”
