Paper Issues | Vacation Pocket Page


Happy Monday, everyone!  I’m on the Paper Issues blog today with a vacation pocket page!  As you recall from a couple of weeks ago, I created a 12x12 layout about our Hawaii vacation using Crate Paper Maggie Holmes collection Confetti.  I thought I would create a corresponding pocket page and put them next to each other in my album.

I don’t do pocket pages the traditional Project Life way anymore.  This year I’m not doing chronological scrapbooking, which means I don’t document week by week or even monthly using pocket pages.  However, I still have room for pocket pages in my life for those times when I want to add more photos!  I really enjoy combining 12x12 pages with pocket pages to document my life.  To coordinate with my 12x12 page, I usually use the same scrapbook collection so that everything is the same color scheme. 


On our Big Island vacation, we celebrated my birthday with lunch at the Four Seasons.  The views were fantastic, and the food was out of this world!  I cut the Confetti “Blast” paper into 4x6 size and layered several of the diecut ephemera under my photos. 


I used some glitter foam Thickers for my title, as well as some alpha stickers.  The gold star vellum paper looks so pretty layered over the Fete paper


One thing that I discovered I love to do is to stamp words onto my photos.  I used some Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards stamps that aren’t in the store anymore, but you can definitely get the same look with any stamps.


I added some Tiny Phrase Stickers onto some of my photos and they make me happy!


So now I have matching 12x12 and pocket pages that document part of our vacation!


Hope you enjoyed a look at my pocket page and the way I’m organizing my album this year!

  1. Great photos! Looks like it was a fun time with tasty food :)
    I love the way the pocket page and layout facing each other look!

  2. I love your pocket page layouts. The 12x12 isn't to shabby either. You have a good eye for style and color. Thanks for sharing.

  3. This is such a great idea! I think I'm going to mix in a few pocket pages among the vacation pages I'm doing to document our trip to Alaska last year. What a great way to get lots of photos on one page! And I love how it adds some variability to the overall look of an album. Fantastic page, as always!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
