Here is what I created:
I made the 3 x 4 cards using the outline version of the “SMILE” and “LAUGH” stamps. I used my Misti stamping tool to help me line everything up, and to double stamp if needed.
I used Distress oxide colors in Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, and Seedless Preserves. On the 3 x 4 card that I put in my pocket page, I left room between the red and yellow color to glue on a laugh die cut. I die cut the laugh out of glitter cardstock, and 2x from white cardstock. I glued them one on top of each other to create depth and dimension.
For the other card, I used the Remember When stamp set, along with the Oval and Rectangle Stitched Label dies. I stamped the label with the DO Abandoned Coral ink for my journaling, then fussy cut it out. I also stamped the sold label with DO Picked Raspberry. Once dry, I stamped the “Good Times together” sentiment with Versafine ink, then die cut it using the rectangle stitched die. I adhered the labels to an old Dear Lizzy pattern paper that I trimmed down to 3 x 4 inches. I also added a glitter heart that I die cut from the square die with a heart inside. Like the “laugh,” I die cut it once from glitter cardstock, and 2x from white cardstock and glued them together.
I just added a couple small embellishments to the photo. I stamped the “This Photo Makes Me” sentiment from the Laugh & Smile stamp set with the DO Picked Raspberry ink, fussy cut it out, and adhered it with foam squares. I used the outer square of the heart that I die cut, and adhere it to the photo as well. Ideally, I would have liked my 4×6 photo on top with the 2 3 x 4 cards on bottom so that the sentiment would read “This photo makes me SMILE,” but I don’t have a pocket page layout like that. This works perfectly fine though.
I really like how this pocket spread turned out, and I hope you do too.
