As an hybrid scrapbooking addict, I have a lot of printed photos.
And I always look for them when I sit down front of my scrapbooking table. To help me I decided to create a pocket to keep and classify my photos

I built the pocket in a kraft paper.
I cut several pieces : a main part to create the back and the front of pocket , a flap to close the pocket and 3 dividers to separate inside of the pocket to create differents spaces to classify my photos


The first step is to glue the flap on the main cardstock to gather them and create the complet pocket



Then I cut in a yellow paper two rectangle (yellow paper from Mark the date|papers). I folded them, several times, to create an paper accordion.


I glued them on the edges of my pocket. These accordions will be use runners to slide the diviers inside the pocket



I covered the pocket's back with a blue paper from If only|papers


I covered to the flap and the front parts. I used a paper from Forget me note|papers to decorate the flap

Then I closed the pocket to glued the yellow accordions on the kraft paper (front part) :


I inserted the dividers :


The next step is the creation of the closure.
I punched two holes on the flap :


I decided to sew a button. To hep me, I marked holes of the button with a black pen to create 4 marks and to know where pierce with my needle :




Then I create a tie with a string


My closure is done and my pocket too !



I added some elements to decorate the pocket.
I glued leaves patterns cut in glitter paper and wood leaves


I added a big flower cut with my cutting machine (cuttlebug) in a blue paper from All eyes on you|papers. I love this paper because is several shading of blue and it's perfect with a die cut


To finish I cut with my scissors SNAP SHOT from a journaling card (from Spring Is... | Journal Cards)


My pocket is finished :

So cute! I love how the project ties in with scrapbooking too ... what a great idea. So much prettier to have your photos stored in a little custom made folder/pocket!!!

Hi Everyone,
Well, it is spring here finally! We have been keeping a close eye on a baby magpie that has found its way into our yard and is still not big enough to fly – it looks like a very ugly awkward chicken! We were worried about all the cats in the neighbourhood, but all the big magpies are very good at protecting the little one – it has become our constant entertainment, waiting for our ugly chicken to fly!

I have been loving all the Halloween pages, even though we don’t celebrate it here – I love the colour schemes and fun costume photos that have been appearing! I am also enjoying following this month’s Round Robin lift – still plenty of time to join in that fun!

And now finally onto last month’s Pretty Pages – the wonderful template for the challenge was used in many creative ways, I have highlighted a couple here.

Firstly Smile by KairynLisa – so love the neutral cardboard background paper that allows all the  black and white speech bubble paper and the red scallops to absolutely pop off the page. Add in some aqua and pink as well as a gorgeous couple photo that beams happiness and there is a page I absolutely love!

Another wonderful use of the template, mixing it up a little is Drive by AnotherAmanda. I am a huge fan of big photos and using the designated photo spot for journaling is inspired -  such a fun page. All the arrows and dashed lines add colour and movement, so appropriate for the little man in his car.

http://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/driveoct2017galprdoct2017c.318035/

Lastly a clean and very effective page, First Days from Yellow Peep – I am such a big fan of her work! I had quite a few I could have chosen but I loved this one so much! The lovely solid background colour and the strong diagonal design, it all works so well. The shadowing adds a lovely floaty effect, perfect for the gorgeous photos.

http://the-lilypad.com/forum/galleries/first-days-2017.316129/full?d=1506796804

That’s all for this month – have a lovely month and don’t forget to drop by the gallery to get some inspiration!
