Week #22 Mixed Media Style Pocket Scrapbooking Using Art Pops Journal Cards!

Hello fellow Project Life lovers! Today, I am sharing my mixed media style pocket scrapbooking layout for Week #22.

Typically, my album layouts run from Monday to Sunday each week. Occasionally, I will extend my week a bit to accommodate special events. In this case, that special event was Memorial Day weekend. For me, the celebration began when I escaped for a relaxing weekend getaway the Thursday prior to Memorial Day. I was absolutely determined not to exclude any of the action. So instead of documenting a normal 7-day week, I packed Week #22 with 11 fun-filled days.  When it was all said and done, I had 32 photos/personal bits of memorabilia for Week #22. WOWZERS!!!! ;D

For my scrapbooking paper & embellishments, I paired the "Citrus Bliss" 6x6 patterned paper by Pink Paislee with the BRAND NEW bold "In the Garden" Art Pops journal cards by mixed media artist, Roben-Marie Smith. These super versatile cards can be used for photo mounting, collage work, and personal journaling. If you are looking for an easy way to incorporate mixed media elements & pops of vibrant colors into your scrapbooking layouts, you DEFINITELY need to check out Roben's super fun Art Pops.

I selected a 'Design A', a 'Design A Panoramic' (with two additional 4x6 & 3x4 pockets) & a 'Design J' page protectors to house all of my photos, journal cards, and personal ephemera. My dates are stamped with 'cranberry' Colorbox pigment ink on square Avery repositionable stickers. I used Ranger's Dylusions "Write Between the Lines" mixed media stamp set and a red Sakura Gelly roll pen to create contrasting journal spots throughout my layout.

Here is a look at my final layout:
