I have another fabulous set of pocket pages to show you from Natalie. Keep reading to see her wonderful pictures and her process as she put it all together.

Hello and welcome to Color Palette Saturday! Back in October, I shared a layout featuring some special posed photos from my daughter’s meet-and-greet with Rapunzel. There was no journaling on that page (very unusual for me!!), and I promised there would be a companion pocket page with all the stories! Well, here it is! In fact, I had so many candid photos that I wanted to include that this is a front-and-back set.

I used color palette #116 as a jumping-off point (I mean, how could I not?–it was perfect!). I focused heavily on the purples with the addition of pinks…and I chose to interpret the yellow shade as metallic gold.

There were four main stories to tell, so I used some neutral journaling cards and a die cut label to hold each of them. I arranged the journaling blocks so that they would be close to the 4×6 photos that matched best. Once I had my journaling written, it was time to build my 4×6 cards.

I knew I wanted to tie the spread together to show that the pocket page is a companion page and expansion on my layout. Once I knew where my journaling was going to go, the first thing I did was to use the same ‘Lace Egg’ metal cutting die as a stencil to sponge purple and pink ink onto the background of the white cardstock so that it would peek out from underneath the cards or labels.

I had extra Kingdom of Corona flags left over from my layout, so I strung them and more washi flags into bunting to “drape” around the layout.

I had so much fun making more flower clusters in shades of purple and pink inspired by the color palette!

Cupcakes were a conversation topic highlight during this interaction, and the ‘Mouse Cupcake’ metal cutting die was the perfect way to add a subtle nod! I cut it in white and layered it over the stenciling so that it would stand out but not dominate.

After my journaling was in place, I had two more 4×6 spaces, one on each side of the layout. My Title card uses patterned paper scraps from the layout. I love layers even in pockets, so I layered washi, a piece of a label, and patterned paper to draw attention to my title. I used paper flowers and the top of a ‘Luxe Mouse Pearl & Rhinestone’ paper clip to make a feature cluster.

I added the date in the other open spot with more layers of patterned paper behind the print-and-cut label.

How would you use this color palette? Would you bring out different colors than I did?
