I have a Project Life style layout featuring Nikolas' baptism and Imaginisce die cuts to share with you today! When using die cuts, they naturally lend to a Project Life style format of scrapping. I love creating Project Life style layouts as they incoportate so many pictures and leave lots of space for storytelling.
The pictures used aren't the greatest... They were taken 11 years ago! They were also taken using APS film which I have yet to figure out how to get the film unrolled from the solid cartridge it's stored in and converted to digital format... So, I used what I had, shadows and dark spots and all.
A perfect example of poor planning... I completely forgot that this was two pockets not one. I created the journaling piece and went to slide it in the pockey only to find that that plan wasn't going to work... Sigh... I pondered leaving it intact and moving thing around but the big blue strip across the top bothered me. I liked the symmetry that the two blue rectangles created. It's not perfect, it's a little difficult to read, but it is what it is!
I left some of the die cut tags "unbacked". Leaving the negative space around the bracket tags allows movement to the otherwise boxy format of pocket scrapping.
I have another tutorial to share with you today! Thanks to Xyron, making stitchless confetti pockets for your Project Life pages is dead easy!! Here's how;
I told you it was dead easy! I didn't really need it but to hide the double sided tape, I used a thin frame that I ran through my Xyron 3 inch Sticker Maker on top of the pocket.
I hope you find my tutorial helpful! Thanks for stopping in today!
