January 2015 Pocket Pages

At the beginning of the year I shared my revolutionary ideas (spoiler: it's not revolutionary) on starting a Project Life style project for myself this year. I have since been working in top secret on my first attempts, which I'm ready to share with you now!

The first thing I had to figure out was what sort of style I wanted to use. It's surprising how different a template can look considering the confined spaces you need to work with. But I at least knew that I'm currently dead set against rounded corners (so you can all stay tuned for my post in which I realize I love them...). I also didn't really feel like faking pockets either; I just wanted the confined spaces to work with. And since I was working in digital, I decided to embrace it and do what I wouldn't be able to do on paper. So I have some very lovely overlapping pocket areas. If you like them, you can use them too!

I feel like it's pretty unlikely I'll stick with these templates for the whole year, but you have to start somewhere, and this felt good.

Working in the confined spaces was really quite wonderful. I imagined that it would be different from my usual layouts, but I may have underestimated just how different. It feels really great to switch things up, and doing the pockets simultaneously with regular style layouts just keeps everything always fresh. I'm for sure looking forward to adding to this project in February.

You can find all these layouts on Pixel Scrapper as well.

I have all sorts of goodies planned to release in the next couple of weeks, so if you see something in these pages that looks new, it should be coming soon. Also, I'm planning to try out different kinds of pocket style templates and quick pages, to see what you all like best. So don't be shy and let me know what you think.

I love the templates! As I have continued to use rounded corners I find I like them less and less, but I don't know if I want to go back and change them in the layouts I've completed. I'm torn!

I love the combination of the pocket style with regular layouts it seems so much more visually pleasing (at least to my eyes).
