I have a special layout to share with you today. I'm in some sort of a creative low since weeks. I don't know what happened - maybe because my final exams are over and my emotions gone crazy about that - but at the moment it's hard for me to get into the creative flow. So I thought about the project I could do today and wanted to create something easy. Something that comes together all by itself. A simple pocket page. So I started and just filled the pockets with bits and pieces.
And then I had the idea to use the pocket page as my background element on a scrapbooking page. Do you want to see it?
I used a strip of washi to hang the pocket page on the white cardstock wall. Like a frame or something else. But I love the look. You have this predesigned page and it's easy to fill the pockets with little pretty things. Like the heart confetti or just some paper squares. The die cuts are perfect to connect the pockets. I often use a bigger one over two or more pockets. They are also nice to add some dimension.
I used simple patterns for the big pockets. So they don't stand out. I clustered a little title with a puffy sticker and some die cuts. It's really simple and minimalistic. But I often like this best.
I put my photo-paper-staple onto the page. So the glossy pockets are just the background and not the main focus. There's not much more embellishing needed. But I had to add the cute bow. Luckily there is more than one in the die cut package.
I used the lovely washi tape as the decoration on my wide paper clip. Small and easy, but effective.
Within no time, I finished a layout I really like. The pocket page was perfect for the predesigned background and helped me to start the creative process.
What are you doing when you want to create but don't feel creative? Do you have some tips and tricks?
