More in the Pocket with Jackie Ashton

Hi crafters! It’s Jackie here today featuring August 2021 kit and add-ons. I’m sharing a new 12 x 12 scrapbook layout and keeping it clean by using the Pocket Envelope Metal Die. Take a look at how I did that:

A few years ago here in the UK, the City of Bristol hosted an event in aid of the local children’s hospital. It was a Wallace & Gromit hunt around the city—a lovely reason to visit the city and something different to do over the summer months. I wanted to record this fun day on a layout.

After selecting a few of the journaling tags from August Kit, I matched them with patterned papers from the Good Times Paper Stack

I wanted to include a few additional photographs and the Pocket Envelope Metal Die helped me to add the perfect place to hold them and create an additional feature to my layout. I kept the envelope open so that the photographs can be seen peeking from the top.

My main photograph was backed using patterned papers from the Good Times Paper Stackk and sits to the side of the “love this” tag from the August Kit.

I did think about using the journaling tag as my title, but I had a large space at the top so I added an additional title using the Lizzy Alphabet Stamp, as well as the navy Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Stickers. This alphabet stamp set is just fab and another one that you definitely need in your collection!

My final touches were to embellishment my layout. I think I’ve used a bit of everything on this layout from the August 2021 add-ons and just love how they all work so well together. I used some pieces from the Positive Vibes Wood Veneers, Acrylic Stars, and the lovely Chipboard Circle Stickers

I love how quickly this layout came together using the latest August products. The hardest thing was deciding on what photographs to include inside the envelope! This Pocket Envelope Metal Die is now a favourite in my stash!
