Sweet Summer | Summer Pocket Pages with Nathalie

I could not wait for Summer to arrive before digging into the brand new Sweet Summer collection! It totally inspired me to go back a few years and work on this unfinished 6x8 pocket page album! Check out the two spreads I have to share with you today:
I created a few pockets out of papers from the 6x6 Sweet Summer paper pad and started embellishing with several elements from the Chit Chat pack. The speech bubbles add such a fun touch when placed directly on a photo!
I also really wanted to add a piece of ephemera but it seemed kind of lost in the pocket so I attached it with a Jelly Clip (from the Hello collection) and now I love how it captures the eye.
Stickers were my next step after taking care of my journaling (done on my typewriter). I used the 12x12 This & That sticker sheet and the Mini Icons Cardstock stickers on both spreads.
After a few bits of washi tapes (from the Candy Stripe assortment), I finished off with a Cute cloud Clip paired with a happy sun (raised with pop dots).
Before calling it done, I always look around and check: do I have different textures and some dimension? Yes: jelly clip, metal clip, raised stickers, and finally enamel dots. Other ideas could be Doodle-Pops, shaped Sprinkles, staples, stitching...
No matter how YOU add dimension and texture, you are bound to have fun with this happy and colorful Sweet Summer collection! It will continue to be featured here for the next couple of weeks so come back every day for inspiration!
