Fun In Pockets with Guest Designer Nicole Kerr

We have so loved having our May guest, Nicole Kerr, with us on the blog this month! Using our May kit and extras, she has shared an amazing, clean grid-style layout and a colorful mixed-media page to inspire us, and today she’s switching gears with two pocket page spreads! Let’s see what she’s created.

Hello crafty friends! It’s Nicole here, and today I’m back with my final guest design project this month. I’m sad this has come to an end, however I’m so happy that I got the chance to inspire all of you this month!  I’ve had so much fun and I hope that someday I can do this again! For my final project, I’ve used the May 2019 Kit and add-ons to create four pages in my 6” x 8” pocket page album. Let’s take a look!

Supplies | May 2019 Kit, May Labels, Hazel Alphabet Stickers – White, Fuchsia Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Puffy Heart Stickers – Summer Mix, Everyday Goodness Epoxy Stickers, XO Wood Confetti, Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Large Jane Alphabet Stamp – OutlineLarge Jane Alphabet Metal Die

This was such a busy week for my family! We welcomed two new puppies into my parents’ home and one of my sons had an art show.  Because there was so much color happening in all of my photos, I attempted to stick to a teal and purple theme, however it kind of evolved into a multi-color spread in the end. This happens a lot with my pocket page projects, and that’s perfectly okay with me!

For my title card, I used the Large Jane Outline Alphabet Stamp to stamp out the large “WK” and finished the title with the Hazel Alphabet Stickers. I love how this looks like a typewriter text!

One of my favorite things to do lately has been to create small shaker pockets within my pages. For this spread, I created two smaller pockets. To make these, I used my Fuse tool along with the XO Wood Confetti, Puffy Heart Stickers and Everyday Goodness Epoxy Stickers that I stuck back to back with another of the same size. This allows for it to have color and images on both sides as well as move freely within the pocket. The WRMK Fuse tool “melts” the two layers of clear plastic together so those small embellishments don’t fall out.

Supplies | May 2019 Kit, Fuchsia Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Puffy Heart Stickers – Summer Mix, Butterflies and Flowers Puffy Stickers, Everyday Goodness Epoxy Stickers, XO Wood Confetti, Hand Drawn Acrylic Hearts, Beautiful Day 6 x 6 Paper Stack, The Good Life Stamp

I just LOVE the colors in the “RUN, WALK, RIDE, JUMP, PLAY, SWING” 4″ x 6″ tag from the May 2019 Kit that I used on my second spread.  It fit the story I wanted to document of our new Golden Retriever, Cooper, perfectly! I love how last month’s Butterflies and Flowers Puffy Stickers coordinate so well with this month’s colors, especially this particular card. They even match the floral circle Everyday Goodness Epoxy Sticker from this month’s release, too! The yellow flowers are my favorite and I was so excited to finally use it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, for checking out all of my posts, and a huge “thank you” to Elle for having me! I’ve had a great time! If you would like to keep seeing all of the projects I create and you’re on Instagram, please stop over and follow me at @colebys1981. Until next time, happy scrapping!

Hello friends! My name is Nicole and I’m so very excited to be here!  I’m a 30-something mama of two boys and married to my hero and best friend of 14 years. I work in the Accounting and Marketing field by day and scrapbook and paint by night. After being introduced to the card making community about 9 years ago, my love for scrapbooking was found and has continued to grow over the years. I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to inspire others thru my visions, creations and love of color. Never be afraid to show the world what it is that you create. There is no right or wrong…just be you! 

Thank you so much, Nicole, for inspiring us this month with your beautiful projects! We have loved having you!
