Project Life Shaker Pockets

Happy Monday!

Today I wanted to share some simple ways to incorporate shaker pockets into pocket scrapbooking spreads. One of my favorite things to do is match products to sequin mixes – they make the perfect embellishments for any spread.

I love recording details of the decor in our home. The “Green Acres” mix in the shop pairs perfectly with the neutral tones of this page. I chose to layer the sequins over top of a filler card to create added dimension and confetti. Looking to mix up your next spread? Pick a card with a pretty design and enclose it with some coordinating sequins. I love the effect!

I used cards from the Project Life “Everyday Edition” core kit along with a few Shimelle “Little by Little” products.

My second shaker pocket project is a 4 x 12 insert I made. I love layering different sizes of project life page protectors in my albums for dimension.

Really how perfect is that “Pandora’s Ombre” sequin mix?!

I chose to use pocket cards with subtle patterns so the sequins would be emphasized. I also like how the embellishment tag in the bottom pocket helps balance out the heavy top.

I hope you were inspired to create some shaker pockets in a unique way! I think I would include a smaller insert with every spread if I had room.

Tuesday’s Talent ~ Sarah McClellan in the House!!!

Hi SpiegelMomScraps fans!  My name is Sarah and I was thrilled when Jody asked me to be her guest designer for November!  I am a thirty-something mom of two girls from Minnesota.  I have been a traditional 12×12 scrapbooker since 2007 and started Project Life in January of 2014.  

For my first project, I did this beautiful Project Life double spread for Week 37 of 2015.  I used papers and stickers from the Crate Paper Wonder Collection.  I used some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine and Amy Tangerine Goodness Thickers from American Crafts.  My date stamper is from Becky Higgins with Staz-on ink in black.

On my Week 37 title card, I layered a Gold Foil Doily, a shipping tag, Crate Paper Wonder ephemera, and Cloudy Day Cork shapes.    I embellished with enamel shapes, yellow Felt-Fetti Hearts,  Gold Garland Confetti, and Indian Summer Sequin mix.  Enamel dots can be expensive and a great way to save money scrapping is by using sequins in place of enamel dots!

I love to make embellishment clusters on my Project Life spreads like this one.  Here I used another Gold Foil Doily, Crate Paper Wonder ephemera, and stickers, along with a few Thickers. I embellished with Cloudy Days Cork, some Gold Garland Confetti, and Indian Summer Sequins.

In this cluster, I used Cork-Fetti Hearts, along with the Crate Paper ephemera.  When I start a Project Life layout, I try to chose a couple of busier papers from the collection and the rest are from the base colors.  Also, I almost always get the coordinating cut-apart sheets.  I like to layer on the ephemera and stickers and then repeat design elements across my Project Life layouts to create a cohesive look.  I also try to embellish with the same items and only use color shine on a couple of cards.  I do all of my journaling on my antique Underwood typewriter.  

Well, that’s all from me this week.  I hope you all enjoyed my first project this month!  I am so enjoying using these goodies from SpiegelMomScrapShop!  I am looking forward to sharing more projects with you this month!  If you have any questions or would like to see more of my projects, you can find me on InstagramMy Blog and Youtube.
