Operation Scraplift: Ali Edwards

A little scraplift from my favorite artist....

Just browsing through my January 2009 issue of CK (p. 54) and found the perfect page to make my own. I have always love the pocket page idea. It's a great way to sneak in tons of fun embellishments without making the page feel cluttered. I loved finding little bits and pieces of things to use on the page. So much fun!

Supplies (there were a ton!):
Cardstock- (reds) Worldwin; (white) Georgia Pacific
Patterned - (black lace) KI Memories; (hearts) Cosmo Cricket
Accents - (paper border) Doodlebug; (rub-on scroll black) MAMBI; ('love' chipboard circle) Scenic Route; (chipboard circle and mini flower) K & Company; (acetate half-circle) Little Yellow Bicycle; (chipboard man/woman) unknown vendor purchased at Picture This; (chipboard heart, acetate letters, acetate heart and butterflies) Heidi Swapp; ('kiss kiss' stamp) Amuse; (ink) Staz on; (chipboard #2) 'Lil Davis; (ribbon) KI Memories; (brads) KFD; ('celebrate life' stamp) Ali for Technique Tuesday; (plastic dotted accent) Making Memories
Tools - (swirl and dot embossing folders) Cuttlebug; (scallop circle diecut) Quickutz

Tip: As a former baseball card collector I had a good supply of card protector on hand. These will come in handy for all my upcoming pocket pages! If you aren't so lucky to have a baseball card fetish or a 10-year son, you can purchase a stack of these type of pages at your local retail store (i.e. Shopko, Wal-Mart, etc). For the page above, I simply cut the protector down to a 2x2 piece to fit my page. I attached the protector with double-stick tape, but some other fun options would be sewing or stapling the pockets down.
