Brrrr! We're starting to get a little cold, so it's time to scrap up some warm-hearted memories! It's Renee from Scrap Owl back on the blog with some pocket page fun. This time around I'm scrapping my beautiful kids using the photos and artwork that are sent home from school
No, I'm not the first to pair up the dynamic duo of Pocket Page protectors and the Moxxie collections, but for me personally, this is a first. But, you know what, it was super simple and the outcome was totally amazing. (If I don't say so myself!)
I used pocket page protectors from American Crafts that I picked up at my local scrapbook store as the template for my layout. Then I pulled apart elements from the Moxxie Brainiac collection. Since the Moxxie Brainiac collection features cutouts, deciding on the right pieces for the smaller squares was easy. And, since that little owl is just too darn cute, there wasn't a ton of embellishment needed.
I dressed up my photos a bit, though. I used elements from the Moxxie Brainiac Cardstock Sticker sheet to add some captions to my photos. I also used rub ons from the Moxxie School Zone collection. These two collections were designed with the same colors and some of the same features, so they work perfectly together.
Constructing A Centerpiece
My pocket page template has a large rectangle in the middle of the page that served as a perfect area to showcase my children's artwork. After all, it can only hang on the fridge for so long, right?!?
Again, I teamed up the Moxxie Brainiac and Moxxie School Zone collections to create a bright and eye catching backdrop for my masterpieces. The only element that doesn't come from Moxxie is that little strip of washi tape, and of course, my children's amazing creations.
The Moxxie Brainiac Mathlete patterned paper was the perfect place for a handwritten subtitle. That chalkboard paper design looks just like the real thing. And, when you pair it with a white pen, it's just like having a chalkboard right on your layout!
Hope you like the layout as much as I do, and that it gets your scrappy wheels a turning!!
