Do we have any pocket scrapbookers out there? I'm a huge fan of using pocket page protectors and journaling cards to easily document daily life, along with events that have lots of photos. Before I ever dug into Project Life, I used the items to create an album of a girls weekend in New York. It's about time I finally shared the pages with you!
Most of the products in this album are from Becky Higgins and BasicGrey. The pictures were from a combination of my cell phone and camera. I loved how easy it was to get the whole trip into one album, while documenting all the little details.
Back in January when I first started the album, I shared the picture above on Instagram. I enjoy writing and stamping directly on photos. Here I wrapped a rubber band around the letters I needed to make for evenly spaced letters. It also takes far less time!
Pocket pages help incorporate memorabilia into the album as well. Rather than glueing anything down, I can slide it into a pocket and call it done!
I've used the Design H Page Protector by Becky Higgins in a few spots as smaller inserts, like the one below. You'll see the front on the left side, and the back on the right side. I printed a 6x11.5" photo on my home printer, cut it into sections, and included it in the insert. It looks amazing in person and makes a bold statement.
I also included just a few page protectors from We R Memory Keepers. The 2x12" strip adds just a bit of color and a spot for added journaling.
Another Design H insert. I've used a few pockets inside the pocket protectors for hidden journaling and smaller memorabilia. The photo below shows off a few of my favorite products. I love the Tim Holtz labels for adding quick dates and journaling to photos, Chic Tags die cuts, and Studio Calico stamps. They're the perfect additions to pocket scrapbooking.
I use Photoshop to resize my photos before printing. I've added journaling to a few of the photos with the program as well.
