My Happy List....POCKET STYLE!

Here is another layout using a DT kit from Scrap Freak! The layout uses a lot Jenni Bowlin items. JB rocks!

I also used the weekly challenge over at where you are to make a list of things that make you happy. Yes, there are A LOT of things that make me happy.

I love the idea of pockets on mini books and layouts. What a perfect project for pockets! And if I remember something I want to add to the list, there's room on the back of the journaling spots!

I created a pocket with the die cut Jenni Bowlin paper which I cut in half. In it, I slipped a teal piece of cardstock to which I added a tab.

I created another pocket using a zig zag strip I cut from the Collage Press paper. In it, I've tucked a tag and notebook journaling sheet from the Ormolu Etsy Store and another large flower journaing card by Jenni Bowlin. I added a mini closthespin decorated with rub-ons and a blinged out paper flower to the flower card. I also added a teeny tiny clothespin to the Ormolu jounaling notebook sheet! Sooooo stinkin cute!!!!

The teal paper flower and ribbon peeking out are connected to ANOTHER mini tag from The School Locker Etsy Store. I love how it just hangs on the corner, looking like it's glued on.
My FAVE pocket is the vintage library tag embellished with numminess: Ormolu circle tag, a beautiful turquoise shell button, a die cut chipboard piece and a vintage die cut flower from my MoMoStamper Etsy Store.

I dusted off my sewing machine and stitched around one of the Collage Press papers for added detail.

The quote on the Ormolu circle tag goes perfectly with the theme of the page.

The title was created with raw chipboard letters decorated with Distress embossing layered further with Distress Stickles. As I was painting on the Distress stickles with my brush, I dusted the petals of the corner flower with some of the excess Stickles.

See that red flower? My son tore apart one of my fake potted plants, and a collected the sad bits of flowers and put them in a jar in my craft room.....the red flowers live on!
