"Loved Loved Loved" this video! Jill-you are such a natural at making these videos! Really, such a job well done.

Now I want to go home and take inventory of my pockets and envelopes!

Thanks, Jill and 2peas for a really great video!

I love her layout too. But if I take on her challenge (which won't be for awhile, but maybe someday when it's long past eligible for anything) I will have a very different layout than hers. All of my pockets and envelopes are in some very old collections that I do not love but keep because they work for some things. It will be interesting to see what I can make with them!

Two of the last three times I have made pockets for journaling, it was with pattern paper one of those times and a brown paper bag the other time. The other was the only ready-made pocket I purchased recently.

Good idea, Ellen! I know I've purchased some silhouette shapes for pockets recently. If I don't have many coordinating pockets I could always die cut some in a nice pp. Using up pp too!

Initially I thought "I don't have any pockets" because they are not something I buy. But the more I thought about it I quickly realised that I do have some... Are there any supplies I don't own?

Another great video from Jill! I don't know if I could pull off a layout that has so much stuff on it though

I really liked the idea behind this layout, and think Jill is great!

However watching this series has made me realise that members of design teams have a very different stash collection to me.

I LOVED this LO and video! Now that's using up your stash. I have tons of little pockets and glassine envelopes from the first time they were popular. They are older, but I think I get it to work. I really liked the way Jill explained why she was putting stuff where. All around awesome video!

Thanks so much for the positive feedback and support!

I know the layout seems expensive, and I know there's a lot of product used on the page, but I really was just scrapping my existing stash. I have TONS of pockets and envelopes (I love them so and have been stockpiling them like crazy). To me, their true value is in their use, so I used them, and now they're more valuable to me than they were before. I am all for using what you have on hand -- you can even make your own envelopes, as someone suggested. I can only imagine how awesome a layout would look covered with die-cut envelopes! If you don't have a die-cut machine, you can just grab an envelope, open it up, and use it as a template to trace more. It's a great way to use up those paper scraps.

Ronaba, is there an item in your stash that you are hoping to see featured in one of the videos? I'd love to hear your ideas!

I agree a very expensive layout, I didn't recognise the stash being used but it looked like new stuff to me, I don't think I have any envelopes so I will have to pass on this week. Still a very good layout if you do have that particular stash

Thanks for replying, Jill.

I have BUTTONS - lots & lots of buttons!

I would also like to make more use of my distress inks on my scrapbook pages.
I only seem to use them for inking edges.

I used all the prompts but one (I'm not into poetry and I like the idea of 12 prompts more than 13) and made a similar layout using up pockets and tabs.

I'll post it tomorrow.
