Pocket Scrapping : Mother Goose

One of the current trends in scrap booking is the concept and technique of pocket scrapping.
I thought I would try it and use the wonderful mother goose 
collection from graphic 45.
This collection is a whimsical children's themed collection and has the tell tale
vintage classic feel that all graphic 45 papers have.
I love the pocket idea as it allows you to make each individual mini layout, but co-ordinate
the entire project. I love the colors of this collection and they make my black and white photos stand out
The first photo is the entire project ( I removed them form the pocket page to reduce the glare on the plastic), I love the vibrant nature of this project.  

The graphic 45 products I used for this creation were the mother goose 8x8 pad, 12x12 pad, tags and pockets, banners, chip board and sticker sheet, card stock flowers. I also used 
American craft chip board thickers embossed with rouge zing embossing powder, bakers twine, satin ribbon in two colors, bazzill card stock, kaiser craft pearls and rhine stone strips,
and tim holtz walnut stain distress ink

One of the benefits of this type of scrapping, you can choose to put a photo on every section or limit the number of photos you use, there is a lot of flexibility.

I love to add a lot of detail to my scrap booking but that style is not for everyone.
this type of scrap booking looks very effective in a less detailed style and gives a very clean crisp look

I trust you will investigate pocket scrapping if you have not already and give a go, it will add another string to your scrap bow and provide a different way of displaying your cherished photos. and please get into graphic 45 paper they are great for this type of scrapping as well many others
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for further creations.

Cheers Andrew
