Pocket page project // featuring Elle’s Studio February kit

Hey friends! I hope you are all enjoying the February kits by now!! I am loving all of the bright and rich colors!

Today I am sharing a multi-page 6×8 project using anything in the kit that was royal blue, black or grey!EllesStudio_AndreaGray_ManatWork_1

The first page is a full photo that I titled using the white alpha stickers and a cute puffy heart. It serves as an intro page to the next spread in the story. The main pages are a combination of full 6×8 layout and a pocket page about us going to see my oldest son at work!

I had 2 3×4 photos so I used two light cards to keep the aesthetic clean and bright. I also wanted to include the receipt so I used a 4×6 card against the edge and glued a piece of vellum to the border.


I really wanted to use as many of the embellishments as I could and my go-to design for that is a grid/collage style. So once I had the pocket in place I just fit the rest of the pieces on like a puzzle. I love sticking down all the pieces and layering the colors around!


After all of the pieces were glued down and journaling was complete, I pulled out my water colors and splattered some black and royal blue paint down!


The pockets on the opposite side got a similar treatment. This paper from the XOXO paper pack got some paint platters too and a simple embellishment.



I tried so hard to get the SO COOL circle stamp in the center of the circle on the card but alas, even with a clear acrylic block I couldn’t do it! But it still came out cute! This card also got a little love in the label department and the silverware one was perfect – even though we ate pizza!


The final little scribbles and date stamp finished it off!

Thank you so much for being here! See you soon!
