Hazel & Ruby Pic Pockets

Hi Inspiration Lane travellers.
Sharmaine here with a look at a layout I made using the Hazel & Ruby Pic Pockets (these ones are from the Party On range).

Hazel & Ruby Pic Pockets

Products Used:
Hazel & Ruby Pic Pockets
FabScraps Cardstock
Chromacryl Gesso Primer
X-Press It 6mm Double Sided Tape
X-Press It Clear Gel Glue 
Hazel & Ruby Scallop Washi Tape
Hazel & Ruby Sequins
Fabscraps ”Adrenaline Army Boots and 2 Badges Die Cut” chipboard

Firstly a little about the packet of Pic Pockets. It contains 6 plastic pockets, each with a slit to allow you to fill/fit/add, and these come in 3 different sizes. You will find 2 2x2, 2 4x4 and 2 3.5 in the pack.
You could fill these with a photo.
Or you could get creative and add pattern paper, sequins, embellishments or keepsakes.
You could stitch the pockets together and make a banner.
You could bind the pockets to make a mini book.
You could add a magnet on the back and make a reusable shopping list for the fridge.
The uses are almost endless!
I decided to make a layout, using 3 and layer them up to mount my photo on.


I added some gesso to my cardstock, giving some texture and background to the Pic Pockets.


I then stuck the pockets down using some X-Press It double sided tape, hidden behind the photo.
I later stitched two corners of the pockets (making sure it was then secure to the page).
I altered some Fabscraps chipboard (colouring them with markers) and added these to my page.


I then scattered some Hazel & Ruby sequins (adhering them with some dots of X-Press It Clear Gel Glue) and placed some Hazel & Ruby scallop washi tape to the top/bottom of my page.


And the end result…

A fun page documenting our 11 year old’s birthday celebrations.
Thanks for looking.
Enjoy getting crafty.
