As I had taken so many photos this year, I wanted to scrapbook some a little more quickly, so I chose a pocket style page for this layout about the beach.
Although speed was my reason for scrapbooking in this way, in the end I spent a huge amount of time making the pages.
Firstly, I decided to use some of the seaside themed dies from my collection. The layered beach scene is a die by Do Crafts, I had had it a while but was glad to make use of it at last. I cut papers by Anna Griffin, and plain cardstock by Papermania.
Next, I cut out sea creature dies by Katie Skilton, I had used these before in a layout with very different colours, and although red sea might be seen to be a little odd, the colours of the papers match those in the rest of the pages.
The final bit of die cutting was the title from red funky foam using a Sizzix XL alphabet die, I added an embellishment cut from a sea themed PL card with added washi tape.
I added journalling to 3x2 cards, along with hand cut, punched and die cut embellishments.
Although the pages did take a long time, I think the effort was worth it. 😊
