Croptober - Day Six

Apron Strings kits, the Smaller one in particular, are great for pocket pages (aka Project Life®.)  It's super easy to cut down paper to either back your photos, fill in space next to photos or fill empty blocks.  Plus pocket-pages weave in with traditional pages really well.

They can also provide inspiration.  Take this one found on Pinterest, that led me to Kerri Bradford Studio's blog (she has other pockets on this post you can check out.)  

Today, you'll use this pocket page to prompt your creation.  Use the colors.  Use the theme.  Let it be your reminder to dig out that diecut overlay you have (here, it's the spider web.)  As a reminder to make a banner.  As a note-to-self that properly placed embellishments can hide distracting objects in photos - i.e. a photo bomb, a weird body part left over from cropping a photo, a sign, etc. (the bat in the center-right photo, the flag banner on the bottom photo.)  That simple embellishment is powerful - adding mini brads to points between banners on the "Let's Party" card; over a spider on the upper left journaling card, the hand-cut stars and spider placed on the spider web.  Shoot, even the layout, go grid-style on a traditional page, filling in photos and patterned paper where it works best for your page.

If you feel inclined to share a link to your creation, please do so in the comments.  Inspiration is always welcome.

Go. Create.
