Our paper stacks can be used for so many things, from crafting mini albums to backing a scrapbook layout—but have you tried to use our 6 x 8.5 inch paper stacks in pockets? Design team member Nathalie Leonelli is here to share how she used our newest paper stack, Summer Fun, to create one gorgeous pocket page spread. Let’s take a look!
Hello! It’s Nathalie here, and today I would like to share with you how I used the fabulous new Summer Fun 6 x 8.5 Inch Paper Stack to create pocket pages. I love Elle’s paper stacks because they always match the current kits perfectly and they allow me to add more color in my spreads—not to mention how much I love them for card making!. The Summer Fun Paper Stack is no exception with its vibrant summer colors and fun, modern patterns.
Here is the spread I created in my 6″ x 12″ album:
Supplies | June 2020 Kit, June Labels, Summer Stickers, Chipboard Star Stickers, Puffy Alphabet Banners, Summer Wood Veneers, Vacation Wood Veneers, Summer Fun 6 x 8.5 Inch Paper Stack, Mini Dated Extras Stamp
The easiest thing to do in pockets with your paper stack is to complement your kit by cutting some of the papers into 3″ x 4″ or 4″ x 6″ tags. You can really stretch your kit that way. I used a couple of horizontal patterns for the pockets on my right page.
All I did to them was add journaling and embellish minimally with the new Vacation Wood Veneers.
I also like to look through all the papers in the paper stack to find interesting parts within the patterns. This portion of the sunburst paper caught my eye and after adding a sticker, a die-cut and a wood veneer on top of it, it became my favorite area of the spread!
Another way I will typically use my paper stacks in pocket pages is by creating more elaborate tags using several papers on the same tag; layering them with photos, stickers or embellishments. The Summer Wood Veneers are perfect for that!
