Hello friends! Today I'm sharing my first post on the One Little Bird blog. I'm sharing several 6x8 pocket pages that I created to document the end of our summer. Let's discuss how excited I am to be on Peppermint's pocket team for a minute, though. I was first introduced to her digi shop at The Lilypad via the Daily Digi Podcast. I am a podcast junkie and listen to that along with about 20 more ;) When I saw on instagram she was having a creative team call, I couldn't help myself and applied. How excited I was to be contacted to participate! I will be sharing one project per month on her blog.

I had a lot of fun making these pages! I had fun mixing black and white along with some pops of color for these spreads. I used One for the Album journaling cards for this spread. For the cards, I went ahead and added some of my text before I printed, as well as one of the photos. I have been obsessed with watercolor lately. I used my waterbrush to add a little color to this card, along with some sequins. I wanted to experiment with printing some journaling cards on a large scale. I am really in love with the Around Here journaling cards and printed the "weekend photos" at 6x8. I kept it simple by adding a chipboard arrow under the title. I love the big impact of the large page. Even though I tried to use my computer for journaling as much as possible on these spreads, I still like using my typewriter once in a while. I typed these out on white cardstock, then cut them into strips and added some stitching down the center. Again loving the sequins, even for boy themed pockets! jenchapin OLB Sept (7) 
I think this spread is my fave. September is our anniversary month, so I wanted to recognize that. I used the September calendar card and added a simple chipboard heart along with a little watercolor on our anniversary date. The Era Of kit is fabulous. I used the "forever my always" file to make this 6x8 enlargement, then added stars from Little Talks and printed on white cardstock. I embellished with a few gold chipboard stars. jenchapin OLB Sept (8) jenchapin OLB Sept (9)The heart I love you card is one of my faves - from The Era Of journaling card set. I added a wedding photo in black and white. jenchapin OLB Sept (10)This spread features some Little Talks journaling cards. I also couldn't help but use the Prix Fixe journaling card for my egg photo - I take a lot of food pictures and this set is perfect for that. jenchapin OLB Sept (11) jenchapin OLB Sept (12)Again with the watercolors! I printed out the Currently card from Around Here, then used my typewriter for journaling. I added watercolor to the title along with some of the words. I love this effect, it adds a little interest but doesn't take away from the simplicity of the card. That's it for me today! Hope you gained some inspiration for your own pocket pages. Have a great week!
