Your Next Stamp |Fun Friday | Pocket Scrapbook Page

I blinked and then it was May! All those who can’t believe that it’s the 5th month of 2014, raise your hand. That’s okay! I am still have plenty of time to work on my goals as well as my word; tenacity. I’ll be blogging more about those in the following weeks to come.

It’s the first Fun Friday of May over at the Your Next Stamp Challenge blog and it’s my turn to bring you some inspiration. As always, you have the choice to play along with the sketch, the photo, or draw your inspiration from both! Here’s what we got for you:

May 2014 - photo May 2014 Sketch

I was inspired by the photo as well as the sketch and also wanted to bring a lil’ something different to the table this time. I am so happy to be working on one of my 2014 goals and fully imersing myself into pocket scrapbooking! I created my own 3×4 and 4×6 inserts using various papers, YNS stamps and embellishments as well as bits and parts of my different Freckled Fawn kits. I wasn’t sure at the start, but I loved the way everything turned out:

LOOK at these lovely embellishments (Freckled Fawn subscribers – do you recognize the stuff? The gumdrop dots are from YNS and I am so in love with the Stitched Fishtail Banner die that was just released in April – also from YNS.

I started heavily crafting in 2007 with traditional style scrapbooking and then switched over to making cards only when I would spend weeks stuck on a layout. Luckily, these pages came together so quickly with the YNS sentiments that I had on hand.

I hope to see you playing along with us for this challenge. To see further inspiration from the Design Team and for instructions on how to play along, please click on over to the YNS Challenge Blog.
