I usually try to having buying big 12" x 12" paper stacks because you never have enough of a lifetime of crafting to go through them. I broke my own rule with this paper pack called Seaglass, though, because I kept eyeing the patterns and decided I love every single page in the stack. The soft colours and textured paper were also really appealing, so I caved. Aside from using them on cards, I knew I wanted to use them paired with pictures from my trip to Seattle, when we took a road trip to Oregon and stopped in Seaside on the way. It was a beautiful warm sunny day in September and the pictures (taken with my iPhone) came out just lovely.
I cut out my own inserts using the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits. Those were a great investment. I initially bought them more for the little labels, thinking I wouldn't use the card dies very much since I can just cut the cardstock to size and round the corners with the Project Life punch, but I found that they are very useful when I want to center a design, text or picture. I can just frame whatever I want to have on my insert using the die and then I'm sure the image appears exactly where I want it on the card. This was the case here for the cards in the middle row. The paper stack had a couple of pages of images that were meant to be cut out to make tags or accents, but most of them weren't sized to go with pocket scrapbooking, so I cut them to the size I needed for my page.
I like how the alphabet stickers from American Crafts I used on the lower left insert look like they are covered with sand! Perfect for this page!
