Featuring Alice Golden

Hello everyone and happy Monday!  Today I wanted to feature artwork by Alice Golden.  I love her work and love how she uses the POCKET PAGES™ in her crafting.  I love that we all have our own style.  

This one features a flip up element that she created by cutting a slit in the page protector. Flip ups are a great way to add more photos or journaling to a pocket layout.

Alice cut out one of the balloons from a card and used Scrapper's Floss to tie a balloon to the firefighter sticker.  Cutting out items on the cards are a great way to make your own 3D embellishments.  

I love how she die cut a pinked circle shape from the yellow card and used that as a window to help highlight this photo of the birthday boy.

The triangle letters were cut from another card and tied onto the ladder sticker using baker's twine.  Foam adhesive was put under the letters to give them more dimension. These are all adhered to the front of the page protector.

I love the details that Alice uses, on the card below she used glitter glue to add sparkle to each candle on the cake.

Photo corners were punched out of a leftover card and used to add a bit more color to the photo mat.  I love being able to use scraps!

Alice also did this school field trip layout using the POCKET PAGES™ School pack with some of the SOFT SPOKEN™ dimensional Zoo themed stickers.

A corner punch created slits in each corner of one of the cards so a photo could be tucked underneath. She cut out the "date" part of the card and adhered it over the photo. A Zoo sticker was layered over the photo to create the title.  Alice and I both agree that when using dimensional stickers, they look better adhered on top of the page protector.

Just like the other pages she did, she cut a slit in the page protector to make the pocket interactive. Instead of inserting a flat piece, she added a flip up card with a photo on the front.

Scraps from one of the cards was used to create a cute pull tab.

When the tab is lifted up, you have a spot for another photo, journaling, or BOTH!

A closer look at a few of the other pockets.  I just love this layout!

Alice mentioned how much she likes that the cards are themed.  Her example, she mentioned, the card full of apples could be used on school related pages, apple picking, or fall and would also be great on a card. She added the school bus sticker to reinforce the field trip theme of the page.  Another great detail.
