A Pocket of Photos... Made From a Photo

Do you get ideas for projects when you're trying to fall asleep at night? I do... all the time. It kind of drives me crazy because it takes me so long to fall asleep. This is something Levi doesn't understand at all because he can fall asleep anywhere in two seconds once the sun has set.

Anyway, I got the idea to turn this photo of a tree in to a pocket one night when I was trying to fall asleep, and I think it looks pretty cool! This layout is about a family walk we took one afternoon at Cal State Long Beach (my alma mater). I have always loved all the gorgeous trees on campus so this layout seemed appropriate.


I used matte photo paper and printed two 6x8s of the photo. I cut one of them down (for the pocket) and stitched it onto the other, and there you go! A pocket made from a photo... to hold more photos. :) I typed the journaling onto vellum to tone down the vivid blue a little without distracting too much from the photo. I love how the wood veneer asterisks and the alpha stickers give the page a bit of a midcentury feel because there are lots of cool midcentury design elements on campus, which you can see in the photos inside the pocket.

Thank you for checking out my page!
