Rise Weekend Pocket Page

Over the summer, I attended the RISE conference with Rachel Hollis, a life-changing motivational conference featuring speakers that help to put you in the mindset to conquer anything you want to change in your life! I attended with Catherine Tachdijan of Scrapbook and Cards Today, and we had a wonderful weekend of friendship, food and the powerful conference that helped set my soul on fire. I highly encourage attending this conference if you feel like something is missing from you life. I wanted to document my favorite photos and thoughts from this weekend, and I did that in a pocket page that I created while at Crop & Create Cornwall, to share with my make-and-take attendees! I wanted to show them that you can have just as much fun in pockets as you can on a scrapbook layout, and get so much more documented! I’d love to share this special page with you today:


Supplies* | Project Life Stories Value Core Kit, Color Kaleidoscope puffy stickers, Color Kaleidoscope sticker book, Color Kaleidoscope washi tape set, Mini Dated stamp

Created with only a few products (which are all on sale at my links—the Project Life core kit is 50% off!), this pocket page came together so easily because the core kit coordinated beautifully with the Color Kaleidoscope collection from American Crafts and Vicki Boutin. My favorite pocket was the title pocket, which was originally black and white, and I colored in with watercolors to coordinate with the three main colors of my color scheme.


The color scheme was easily to come up with—I simply matched the colors of the conference materials! The pocket cards worked perfectly for me to add journaling and minimal embellishments—like washi tape, cardstock stickers and tiny puffy stickers!


I kept the back of the pocket page fun and bright, adding small bits of embellishment and two filler pockets for visual interest! I love the bright and bold pops of color from both my products and photos!


The “I love this story” card was one of my favorites in the kit, and I had to use it right in the center of the page. My favorite 4” x 6” photo of Catherine and I from the weekend, taken on the “made for more” wall, was divided across two 3” x 4” pockets. I added no embellishment to it—you don’t have to embellish each and every pocket!
