Crafting Trends 2017 - A Touch of Whimsy

Adding a whimsical element to any project gives your creation a playful feel. I love doing this with simple layouts like the one below. 

The design is very basic, but that pocket full of fun little surprises makes it a lot more interesting. 

Inspiration: Close To My Heart's Imagine How-To book.

Technique: Creating a pocket - I made sure not to add any glue to the top of the Sea Glass cardstock so I could tuck in embellishments.

Page Elements: I mixed the Memo Fundamentals, Rustic Home Fundamentals and Whimsy Fundamentals and brought them together with the All Together Complements. I also stitched along the edges with copper thread.
