Hello, everyone, I’m back today with a sneak peek of this month’s new release and simply cannot wait to tell you about our new line called Pockets & Pages!  Although I’m not a scrapper, I’ve always secretly wished I could be one…but the size, layout, choices…it was all too overwhelming for me.  A few months ago I discovered Project Life (I know, what rock have I been living under?) and was intrigued.  I started to think that maybe, just maybe, I could do it…but I still needed a push!

I can’t begin to tell you how excited I was when I learned that Taylored Expressions would be launching this new collection, Pockets & Pages.  There’s no time like the present to get started on something new and I was more than ready.  But where to start?  I had to put my fears aside and just do it (and forget about the fact that I don’t like my handwriting!).  I decided to start with the current year, 2013, as there were several big events that happened…mainly the birth of our 4th child.

I used several new dies for my 2 page layout.  The first two I used were 3×4 Bubble In, which I used for my journaling, and 3×4 Bubble Out, which I used with the black and white photo.  I love how they look!  For my journaling, I wrote with THESE pens.  I used a ruler and drew very light lines in pencil and then erased them when I was done.  The black and white photo also uses Bars of the Week for my “Thursday” and I love these dies too!  The brackets are from Pockets & Pages Essentials 4×6 and I love the size of it!

I love how Pockets & Pages made this so easy for me.  All the elements mix and match beautifully and I didn’t feel overwhelmed putting it together.   You will probably be seeing a lot of pictures and events of my kids.  They keep me busy (for sure!), but I am so thankful for them and hope I am as much of a blessing to them as they are to me.  

Go see what the rest of the Baker’s Dozen whipped up for you today….you won’t be disappointed!
