Hey y’all! Laura Alberts back again with two bright, cheerful pocket pages featuring the stunning Happiness collection. I thought this collection worked beautifully with January’s Mood Board because it had many of the colors as well as a really stunning painted look. To join in on the mood board inspiration, be sure to join us in the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Facebook Group!
One of the many reasons that I adore Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s collections is that they are always super versatile and can be used on a variety of projects. These pocket pages use a lot of the cut aparts from the Little Things patterned paper, ephemera pieces, and scraps! This top left card is layers of scraps with a sticker tag and ephemera journaling spot.
For the title card, I fussy cut the wreath from the ephemera pack and layered the flower pot and some hearts and florals together. My favorite part of this card is the clear sticker paint swatch, it adds a little idea of depth because it’s layered behind the flower pot. A little bit of Nuvo drops finishes it off with the detailing that really makes it feel finished. On the card below the title, I added tiny, fussy cut florals to the heart cut apart pieces and a word phrase to personalize it!
On this bottom card, I created a 4×6 card from paper scraps and then layered the green paper as a mat under my photo. Two hearts tucked in together below a word phrase sticker with tiny, fussy cut florals for added detail. The butterfly is fussy cut from the Bright & Beautiful patterned paper in the 6×8 paper pad.
For the title card on the second page, I used clear stickers for the paint stripes and title with a few fussy cut florals and butterflies for a whimsical touch. I added little dots of Nuvo drops to create butterfly trails.
I kept the embellishing fairly simple on my photos so as not to draw attention away from them. This pocket page had a common theme of how snuggly my twins had become and featured so many sweet photos of them cuddled up with me and their siblings.
This bottom card is my favorite from the whole page! I used clear stickers, backed with white cardstock, to cluster behind the photo of my oldest and youngest girls. Layering a couple of cut aparts on the right side to add some journaling. I really enjoy how beautifully the patterned papers work for creating 3×4 and 4×6 cards for pocket pages!
I hope these pocket pages inspire you to look at your pattern papers a little differently! It’s fun to see how you can change things up and use scrapbooking collections for pocket pages or a variety of other projects.
