Now over to Jenn for the May challenge details. This month we are going to block it all out in pocket style. I absolutely love the blocking of a pocket page, the ability to fit a lot of pictures in a clean way, and the simplicity of a traditional photo-page look for my weekly layouts. Pocket pages have so many options: keep it simple, layer on top of it all, shrink those pockets, paper up your blocks, really the list could go on and on. And that is all this month’s challenge has to it- simply make a pocket style layout using Danyale’s pretties.


Luckily, Danyale has plenty of pocket style templates to make this challenge super easy for you! I chose her newest set that coordinates with her Wild- On the Inside Bundle.

For my layout, I chose to highlight one of my favorite ways to fill my page if I don’t want or have enough pictures, putting fun paper in place of photos. I used the On the Inside Kit, Alphabet Soup- Wild, and Pocket Stories 6- Wild Stuff.

Just a few simple rules:

Scrap a pocket style page using any Etc by Danyale kit of your choice. Stumped with the pocket style? Danyale has a few different template sets in the store and there was a freebie one given away during The Lilypad Challenges last month. We also have 5 tips for Pocket Pages here.

If you scrap with a new release the first week within its release, you will get an extra entry point. For example, Danyale has a new kit that releases on the 1st, you purchase that kit and scrap a layout with it posting it by the 8th and now you get two entries instead of one.

Upload your layout and post it here for us to gush over by midnight EST on Tuesday May 31, 2016.

One lucky winner will be chosen at random to receive a $10 coupon to Danyale’s store.
