Pocket Page Layout by Marybeth Hancher | @FelicityJaneHi, everyone!  I'm back this week to share a couple pocket pages I made for my Project Life album.  If you know me at all, you'll know that I can't seem to stick with just one type of memory keeping for too long.  In fact, I think I do my best when I switch up the shapes & sizes & styles of my books as often as possible.  :)  And this week, I'm really enjoying cutting up the beautiful papers in these kits to fit in page protectors.

First up is the one I created using this month's "Felicity" Kit... that I'm in l-o-o-o-o-ve with, by the way!  For this layout, I was inspired by all the blues and blacks I had going on in my photos this week.

I think the light mint paper mixed with the little pops of pink worked really wonderfully.  The banners that I stitched to the photo below are from the cut files we received this month.  I simply resized them a little smaller before cutting them out with my Silhouette, and then I stamped right on top of the pink one.

I also used the stamp set from this month to add "A Reason To Smile" in the center of that adorable journaling card.

Another thing I love about this month's kit is the acetate pack of goodies.  This black polka dot piece with the thumb notch was just too cute to not immediately use!  It was a tiny bit larger than the pocket, so I trimmed down the side a bit (and saved the little strip of dots to use later!), and then I tucked a homemade tag behind it- I haven't journaled on it quite yet because, well, I don't always like how my handwriting looks, so share it on the Felicity Jane blog??  No thank you!!  ;)

I used the alpha set to write the word "Happy" on the outside of the page protector, and then I took the 4x6 paper to my typewriter to share some thoughts... Not without making a few mistakes, though.  See?  Eh, I don't mind.

And naturally, it wouldn't be a page by me if there wasn't some sort of cat involved, right?  ;)

I just sewed that smaller image to the paper, popped a flair button on the outside, and it's done!

Can I show you just one more page??  This is one I made using the Maggie Kit.

These colors are just so calming, aren't they?

For this layout, I cut the beautiful woodgrain + light blue & white paper that came in the kit so it would line up nicely behind the 4x4 pockets in the page protectors.  Then I cut off the black and white polka dot branding strip at the bottom and added it to some of the cards.

One thing I love about the pocket page layouts I create is that I tend to always add some embellishments on top of the page protector.  I just think it's more fun to put them on the outside, don't you?

How many of you look at the packaging when you receive your kit and think, "How can I use all this gorgeous crinkly white stuffing in my projects?"  (Seriously, I just think our kits come packaged SO beautifully!)  When I was making this, I got the idea to create a "shaker pocket" of sorts using some of the packaging material as well as the tissue paper confetti circles that came in the kit, too.  Fun, right?

And, once again, I used my 1960s typewriter to do some journaling on the cards.  This time without making any mistakes.  ;)

And that's it!  I enjoyed making these immensely, so I'm sure there will be more pocket page layouts to come!  Thanks so much for looking!!  XOXO
