I recently took one of those Meyers Briggs personality tests. If you are at all interested, you can find it here: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp
I was fascinated by the results because they were so eerily accurate. I always knew that some things have always been hard for me, but after reading about my personality type (I’m an INTJ) I finally understood why. And the amazing thing is that now that I’m more conscious of it, I have been able to make a few shifts in the way that I approach those situations and it’s made a huge difference. I printed a ton of info from the Internet because I wanted to be able to remind myself of these things if I ever started to forget.
In addition, I have come to learn that many Capricorns are INTJ’s. Which lead to even more research and investigation. And more printing. And the pressing issue of…what to do with all these things? You guessed it…I had to create a pocket layout, of course.
I wasn’t really going for a work of art on the layout itself. I just wanted a photo and a place to hold all these papers. I ended up going through my orange scrap drawer and pulling out a bunch of coordinating papers. Using an old Quickutz rounded square shape, I punched all of the papers and started arranging them to cover the pocket.
I used a full sheet of 12×12 cardstock. I knew that the pocket would be 6×12 so I folded the sheet in half to create a guide. Starting in the bottom left corner, I adhered my squares on the diagonal. The rounded corners provided the perfect place for a brad. I added one in between each square and that helped create the quilted look.
After I added all of the brads, I folded down the other half of the card stock to cover up the brad posts. It gave a smooth edge to the back of the pocket so that I could slide all the papers in.
Here’s the completed layout:
The flap with my photo lifts up and that is where I added some journaling. I added a few butterflies, a flair badge, a quick title that I cut with my Silhouette and called it done.
