CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Passionate About Pockets

I am excited that you have decided to join us on our CTMH Technique Blog Hop this month where we are focusing on "Pockets". These pockets could be our flip-flaps, pocket cards (Picture my Life cards) or any version of a pocket you could think of.

If you are here from Michelle's Blog, then you are on the right track.

I decided to use a variety of our Picture My Life cards and overlays.  I am still working on getting our Easter photos preserved and using these cards helped me get 4 pages completed on Saturday in about 2 hours.  I love how easy these are to use as well as how versatile!!!

For this first layout, I used the pocket cards and photos on a 12 x 12 cardstock to place in a standard page protector for the left side and used the pocket cards and photos on the right side in one of the pocket page protectors.  I am using the Calypso cards as well as the watercolor PML cards.

In the layout above, I used one of the black overlay cards that has the word 'Happy' on it to go over the picture n the middle of Big Daddy playing with Jase & Ten on the floating dock.  

Here is a short video tutorial showing the watercolor cards:

For my second layout, I continued using the Calypso papers and again one side is in the pocket page protector and the other side is on a regular 12 x 12 layout.

In the above layout on the top left picture & bottom right one,  I again used one of the black overlays.  I love how these overlays adds an extra pop to some of the pictures.

I put together another short video to show you how these pages fit in my album and why I chose to combine a pocket layout with a traditional layout.

Now hop on over to Kirsten's Blog to see how passionate she is about pockets!!!
