Pocket Page Protector Tutorial - Pretty Little Studio

Last Friday my quick and easy tutorial on how to use "pocket page protectors" on your layout was up on Pretty Little Studio's blog and today I'm gonna share it here too - just in case you missed it!

Seeing as “pocket pages” are all the rage right now, I thought it would be fun to use (part of) a plastic pocket page protector on my layout, because like many of you I’ve got piles of these protectors lying around my scrap room. For my layout I chose to use part of this pocket page protector by Becky Higgins:

Using my Fiskars trimmer I cut off one of the pockets:

Next I punched a lot of hearts, using one of my Epiphany Crafts tools: 

... put them in the pocket, added a speech bubble (cut with my Cameo) and used my sewing machine to sew the speech bubble in place and the pocket shut:

And here’s my completed layout (with the pocket nicely incorporated) and a few close-ups. Hope you like it!

Supplies: Pretty Little Studio's Neapolitan collection and a few bits and pieces from the April Showers and Love Notes collections.  

Thanks for stopping by today!
