Studio Calico provides layout, card and pocket page sketches for inspiration. Because I am doing Project Life, I adapted two sketches that they provided for Project Life pockets in recent months.
And here is how I mixed them on a single pocket page layout, using the top right and bottom left sketches on this page.
1. I made the CAPTION “Bored” by placing foam letters over a piece of washi tape on a 3 x 4 card to make an eye-catching introductory pocket. I then did a similar caption in the last pocket, which tells the ends of the story.
2. I used a washi tape star (actually had to double them up to make it more visible on the photo) as an accent tying 2 pictures of the dormitory together. The horizontal lines of the buildings reminded me of the lines on the bottom left sketch card.
3. Here’s the scoop:
Jen finishes her summer internship and spends time with friends. Once they have returned to college, she becomes bored very quickly. Luckily this shot was taken the day before we took her back to school – her home away!
The idea of sketches for pocket page scrapbooking is an interesting one. The idea of a whole divided page layout sketch seems like it would be more of a hindrance than a help. And at first I thought it hardly seems necessary to have a sketch for a single pocket, but . . . for those who want to add embellishments in their pockets, I can see where a road map might help guide the way and limit the guesswork. I will try a few more before deciding yay or nay. What say you on this subject?
