Travel Journal Pocket Page

 
Happy International Scrapbooking Day everyone! I hope you've managed to find a bit of time to cut out some pretty things and stick them to other pretty things (assuming you're into that sort of thing).
 
Recently I shared a scrapbook page I made about trip to Indonesia a couple of years ago (you can find it here). I usually like to make layouts with a single photo and this was no exception, but over the last few months, I have really been enjoying making accompanying pocket pages to include extra photos and journaling. For me it's the best of both worlds: I can make the design I want and still include excessively long journaling and a whole collection of my favourite pictures.
 
 
So today, I bring you the matching pocket page.  It came together pretty quickly as I left much of it without embellishment.  I simply wanted to have the opportunity to include all the photos I wanted to, instead of restricting myself to the one or two which might fit on a 12x12 layout.
 
 
It was reasonably straightforward to put together the other pockets.  I had used a trail of little butterfly embellishments on the 12x12 layout, and still had abandoned scraps and butterflies strewn over my coffee table.  So I gathered them up, match them up, punched a couple of extra butterflies where needed, and quickly layered up a few butterfly embellishments.
 
 
I used little foam squares to add dimension to the wings and tiny pearl stickers to accent them. I filled two of the pockets with the butterflies, adhering them to patterned paper to tie in with the main page, and then framing each one with white cardstock so that they had a white border like the photos. 
 
 
Finally, the pocket page meant that I could add the rest of my journalling.  There is some hidden in the original layout, but I invariably find that I have more that I want to say.  I used a square of white cardstock as a very simple journaling card, adding another little butterfly and a layering up a few leftover scraps that were floating around the table.


I also got to use a special embellishment: my Mum gave me this lovely lacy butterfly and it tied in beautifully with this page.  I'd been saving it for a while as it's so pretty, but it's lovely to have it in my album at last.
 

And there we have it!  Pocket page complete, and a very satisfying feeling of an adventure fully documented without having to compromise on pictures, design or journaling.

P.S. Actually, today I am working with a bunch of Guides up at a campsite and then attending a Sound of Music party, but hopefully I will find a little slice of time somewhere to play with my patterned paper.  The photos from the Alice in Wonderland Afternoon tea are calling me!

  2. I've never done any scrapbooking before, always preferring my sewing machines, however after reading some of your posts I decided to do a journal about all the holidays we have taken with our sister and brother in law over the last 10 years. I've only just begun, but I'm really having fun and your posts have given me a few good tips on the way. Xx
