Embark on Adventures :: Pocket Scrapbooking

Monday, September 30, 2013

Happy Monday! I'm here today sharing a spread from my 2013 album. 

This spread contains pictures and journaling from a recent day trip with my extended family on our atv's. Rather than create 4 to 5 separate layouts, I used pocket page protectors to document the event. It allows each pocket to be its own page with a picture, title, and journaling. I'm loving this project. 

This spread was created with the Chalkboard Albums Made Easy Kit by We R Memory Keepers and all of the photos were taken with my camera (instead of cell phone!).

I included lots of journaling on these cards, printing my photos smaller to incorporate it. The journaling was created on a typewriter, which was cut into strips and adhered to the cards. 

I also included lots of stitching around photos and to secure sticker letters. It added a bit of texture, as well as put emphasis on the photos. 

One of my favorite parts of the spread is the card below. The Albums Made Easy kits come with cut out journaling cards. I adhered one of my photos behind the card and used the typewriter to add simple journaling. I think the 'uh oh' fits perfectly here and gets the point across!

Here's the second page of the spread. You'll notice another cut out card, some stamping, and a screen shot of a Facebook status about the day! 

Thanks for joining me today! Are you a pocket scrapbooker?

  1. I've never heard of pocket scrapbooking before, but I love this! Do you use a sewing machine to do stitching on your layouts?

    1. I sure do! Thank you for your kind comment. I have a Brother Sewing Machine - nothing fancy - and use a regular needle and and all-purpose thread.

  2. Love the colors and the way you put your PL pages together.
