I was so excited to be featured twice in Scrapbook and Cards Today's summer issue, and I loved being a contributing writer for the Pocket Play column. It it, I described how I finally found a way to make pocket page scrapbooking work for me, and I shared a new favorite layout with a favorite color scheme for me: yellow and red with a touch of teal. You can find this color scheme often in my albums. (*All product links below are affiliate links. You don't pay any extra, but I get a small percentage of your sale!

My title pocket was created with the fun, colorful tag from the Happy Birthday Journaling Tags. I started the quote out with the word "memories" from the Live Laugh Love Puffy Stickers and searched online for a quote about memories, finding this one from Rosa Parks. I loved it, and typed it in Photoshop before printing it on the tag. A few more puffy stickers and an Acrylic Birthday Confetti piece finished off the pocket, which introduced the page.
This page documented a surprise trip to my mom and dad's for my father's 60th birthday. I had to create a tag that documented that, and the balloon Happy Birthday Stickers and Dad acrylic and word set helped me add a bit of embellishment to the Happy Birthday Journaling Tags. This may be one of my favorite ever embellished tags in my album, although my sewing machine was acting up that day when I sewed the balloon strings!
Summer to me means baseball games. I love going to them with my family, and our hometown stadium is so fun to visit. I used the "like it/love it" tag from the April 2017 Kit as a base for my pocket, typing my journaling and adding a cut tag from the Live Laugh Love Bits and Pieces and a piece of printed Live Laugh Love washi tape stickers.
