Projects using our monthly kit and add-ons can be as simple as you want them to be, and they still turn out colorful and beautiful! Today Suzanna Stein is here to share her latest pocket page using the April kit and add-ons, to document a fun adventure! Let’s take a look.
Hey crafty pals, it’s Suzanna here! I’m excited to share this pocket page layout with you! I used all sorts of goodies from the April kit and extras, plus I put the Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die to use and I am obsessed!

I start my layouts in all different ways and gather inspiration from different things each time. This time, I printed my photos and knew I wanted to use the Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die somewhere in the layout. From there, I embellished my photos, adding a few labels and puffy hearts.
I was really excited to see that the Go See Do Acrylic went along perfectly with my theme and the story of my layout. I stacked those words on a 3″ x 4″ journaling tag to serve as my layout title. The white is subtle, which I love, but still stands out just a bit from the colorful stripes of the background.
A few of my photos were washed out and/or super busy. I was trying to embellish them in a simple manner without taking away from everything that was going on, and also trying not to draw attention to the fact that they were washed out. Even the photos that turn out blurry or washed out end up in my albums because getting the memory or story documented is more important to me than having the perfect image.
Finally, I used the Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die to cut letters from patterned papers in theNoteworthy 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection. The teal matched my layout perfectly and I love the interest that the white dots add! I cut a second set of the same letters from a wood grain paper in the Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection and layered them behind the teal letters, allowing the wood grain to act as a shadow. I love the look this gives the tag—my eyes instantly go to those letters!
I hope this layout gave you a few ideas and inspiration for your upcoming projects! It was so fun using those dies and I cannot wait to use them on future projects!
