Love You Scrap-pageby Sharon Jeffs
Recently my family had a big scare when my daughter developed some worrying symptoms and had to undergo tests to see what were the cause. For our family, it was a very long three day wait that fortunately ended with an "all clear" result.
As a part of our families daily life, I really felt it was important to document this period but I have been documenting our lives through the Pocket page system which has been ideal for my hectic lifestyle.
Fortunately for me the Becky Higgins range offer more than just pocket page options so I decided to create a page using one of the 6 inch by 12 inch pockets. This size pocket is perfect for this type of long journalling. The front section of the pocket featured a traditional scrapbook page in a reduced size while the back of this features a page that has been adapted to hold a private document.
To create my project I used one full sheet of 12 inch by 12 inch patterned card (I used a sheet from a Kaisercraft range) that I folded in half. On the one half I cut out a window then applied adhesive around the edges of the page and glued the folded halves together so that I created a pocket page with a window to access it. Here's what the page looked like completed ...
On the front I added a photo that I die cut using the largest Coved Label Die from the Frantic Stamper range. I layered it over a selection of different die cuts then finished off my half page using flowers and stickers from the same Kaisercraft range. Lastly, I added a die cut dress form that I inked using distress inks.
