Another Visit to the Garden

Hello!  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!

Here are a couple of scrapbook pages that I designed for the SASS Stamp Club meeting last weekend.  These pages feature the Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper and a surprise!

The surprise is hidden journaling pockets on each page.  A 3" x 3" piece of Whisper White cardstock is pulled from the hidden journaling pocket using the Pacific Point or Tangerine Tango tabs.  The hidden journaling pocket is made by attaching a Whisper White Mini Envelope to the back of the Whisper White cardstock square on each page.

On the back of the Whisper White cardstock square at the center of each page, Sticky Strip is placed along the left, right, and bottom edges.  The envelope flap is removed from a Whisper White Mini Envelope and Sticky Strip applied to the left and right sides of the back of the envelope and across the middle back of the envelope just below the opening (the Sticky Strip will look like an "H").

The envelope is then adhered to the back of the Whisper White cardstock, lining up the top of the envelope with the top of the Whisper White cardstock.  Then the Whisper White cardstock is adhered to the center of the Wild Wasabi Textured cardstock base pages.

For the left page, a square of Tangerine Tango cardstock was adhered, centered, to the Whisper White cardstock square.  Across the center of the page, a strip of Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper was adhered.  Punched circles of Tangerine Tango (3/4" circle) and Pacific Point (1/2" circle) cardstock were placed at the right and left ends of the strip of Designer Series Paper.  Gold Brads were inserted into the center of the punched circles.  For the hidden journaling pocket, the tab image from the Perfect Punches stamp set was stamped on Pacific Point cardstock using Pacific Point ink.  The word "wishes" from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set was stamped at the top of the tab image using Basic Black ink.  The tab image was punched out with the Rounded Tab punch, folded at the center, and adhered over the top center of the 3" x 3" square of Whisper White cardstock.  This cardstock is inserted into the hidden journaling pocket.

For the right page, a square of Pacific Point cardstock was adhered, centered, to the Whisper White cardstock square.  Three corners of two 2" x 2" squares of Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper and three corners of two 2" x 2" squares of Tangerine Tango cardstock were punched with the 3/16" corner rounder.  The squares were placed on the Pacific Point cardstock with the pointed edge of each square at each corner of the Pacific Point cardstock leaving just a smidge of a border of Pacific Point cardstock along the edges.  For the hidden journaling pocket, the tab image from the Perfect Punches stamp set was stamped on Tangerine Tango cardstock with Tangerine Tango ink.  The word "dreams" from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set was stamped at the top of the tab image using Basic Black ink.  The tab image was punched out with the Rounded Tab punch, folded at the center, and adhered over the top center of a 3" x 3" square of Whisper White cardstock.  This cardstock is inserted into the hidden journaling pocket.

For the non-scrapbookers of the SASS Stamp Club, I used the left page designs to make this card:

If you're looking for a way to share an important message with a loved one or to document a private thought or feeling, a hidden pocket is just what you need.  I've used a Mini Envelope for these pages, but any size envelope will work depending upon the size of the scrapbook page and the cardstock it will be anchored to.  And your pockets don't have to be hidden.  You can make them a part of the page element for photos and memorabilia, too!

Gorgeous pages! I love the tucked behind journaling! And the rounded corners look fantastic too!

Very clever ideas. And I love that the journaling can be hidden (for the more personal notes).
