Bimini Moose Feature - Snow Much Fun Pocket Page Scrapbooking!

Well, I'm not sure if I should say it, but it really feels like spring is here! The local groundhog predicted it would be an early spring, and it seems as though he might be right! Oh, I realize that living in Alberta we are subject to a blizzard or hail storm any month of the year, but the sunshine and warm temps these last few days feel really good!

I decided before I get completely out of winter mode I wanted to finish a couple wintery pocket pages. Quite some time ago I made the winter scrapbook layouts of my girls playing in the backyard on either side of each pocket page and still had some extra pictures I wanted to include. This is one reason I really love using pocket pages - You can easily add in those extra pictures for an event, without feeling like you have to do a lot of traditional layouts if you don't want to.

I used Pretty Cute Stamps to add watercolored stamped images using Distress and Tombow markers and for the sentiments on my pocket page layouts. I just love all the sentiments in each set of stamps from Pretty Cute Stamps - perfect for my Project Life or pocket page layouts!

It was such a milestone to see Erica (the baby) finally enjoying playing outside with Amie. They were definitely Happy Together! and as a mom, what is more important than knowing two sisters are becoming closer together each day.

I also added in some Heidi Swapp Believe papers - matching my traditional layouts - as well as some CTMH small journalling spots and BoBunny and PL journalling cards.

Here are my layouts as they appear in my album, alongside the traditional layouts:

I thought the pinks and adorable Eskimo girl stamp added a girly touch to my layouts - and the lovey dovey snow sentiments! Perfect for a layout for my beautiful girls!

  7. Love how you are mixing project life and traditional styles - its looking fantastic, I never liked PL that much when it first started as it seemed so difficult to coordinate different photos with papers, but maybe Im almost converted! Gorgeous pages... Thankyou for playing along at Lasting memories
