Clean and Simple Memory Keeping – Pocket Page Layout feat. Fresh Dye Inks

What better way to highlight a story than through photos, clean lines, and a pop of color.

My choice for today was to show you how to create a clean and simple memory-keeping pocket page that showcases the story through the colors of the inks.

Pocket Page

In order to highlight the story, first, I transformed my photos into black and white images.  This allows for a cohesive look for the page while bringing the focus to each of the pocket spaces in the grid.  A clean and simple memory-keeping layout means that each section of the spread is defined, focused, and free from too many fillers. I am using these concepts to create my sentiment pocket card.

I used the  Frosted Foliage Fresh Dye Inks Bundle and  Woodland Escape Fresh Dye Inks Bundle to create two gradient lines in the sentiment card. Then, I stamped the small floral image from the Castle Garden Stamp Set at the bottom of the card. Finally, I used Indigo Skies Fresh Dye Ink and Meadow Reflections Stamp Set to add a small butterfly and the sentiment to the card.  A few enamel dots complete the card and spread.

Title Page

One of the main qualities of a clean and simple memory-keeping layout is negative space.

This is the reason I am creating a separate title page for the spread, following the same colors and design as the sentiment pocket card.

Since, I have a larger space to fill, my choice was to create a focal point (grounding spot) for the page using lines of blended ink.  My choice to intersect lines adds interest to the page plus defines a spot for title placement.

In order to finish my clean and simple memory-keeping layout, I decided to add a bit of texture and movement to the page.

Using the Indigo Skies Fresh Dye ink, I created the shadow die cuts for the title work (You Matter Die Set) and the butterflies die-cuts (Meadow Reflections Stamp and Die Bundle).

You can watch this pocket spread come together in the following video here or in HD on the Altenew YouTube channel:

I hope this inspires you to check the new Trailblazing Fresh Dye Inks and use them to create a clean and simple memory-keeping layout.
