Sketch it Out Wednesday

Its Wednesday and if you've been following along, you know that it's another sketch challenge for a 6x8 mini layout page.

If you are new to my page, WeLcOme! My crafty buddy Michelle and I have been challenging ourselves to create a new mini layout page in a 6x8 inch size every Wednesday. This week Michelle thought it would be neat to sketch out a pocket page idea. Welp, I dont have any pocket pages for the 6x8 size, so it will be pretty interesting to see what I come up with, and what she does! We try not to share our works with each other until our posts go live, so be sure to hop over to Michelle's blog after you leave here, if you have not already been there. 

Check out the previous weeks sketch challenges here.... January 8th, January 15th, January 22nd

I started with a 12" x 12" White Daisy cardstock base cut down to 6" wide by 8' tall. I imagined the top portion of my page was a 4"x 6" pocket with the bottom half as two 3" x 4" pockets.
My stash included a set of the picture my life pocket cards (PERFECT size for this challenge) that has 24 double-sided pocket cards featuring unique designs, sentiments, and icons. This collection has a winter outdoor theme. The colors in this collection are Sangria, Fern, New England Ivy, Julep, Espresso, Mink, Linen, French Vanilla and pair so well together.

I thought the winter woods scene was great, however I wanted a more muted tone to it. Now I could have taken white daisy pigment ink and gave it a white wash, instead I used a vellum sheet cut down to 4" x 6" I adhered a photo placement in the 3" x 4" size to the right of the page, and under this is where the adhesive is hidden that holds the vellum down. 

My new favorite stamp is Quotable Words from the Story by Stacy collection. To enhance the photo, I stamped "The most treasured heirlooms are the sweet memories of family" in sangria ink. This stamp set absolutely nails it as staple set for any ones collection. It has 13 images, and will work for all sizes of pages and even is adaptable to cards. 

This turned out to be such an adorable layout, simple, fresh and clean! Now hop on over to Michelles' blog to see here pocket sketch creation! How do you comes up with fresh ideas for your mini album pocket pages? 

Thanks for stopping by.
