Pocket Scrapbooking

Pocket scrapbooking is all the rage these days. You'll see it in stores, on blogs, instagram, pinterest, and in my own albums.

You may be wondering "what is it?" Put simply, pocket scrapbooking is a simple style/method of scrapbooking. You have an album, a couple sets of pocket pages, a kit of pocket cards, and photos. You put the pages in the album, then your photos in the pages, and finish off with some pocket cards and journaling.
That's it! Scrapbooking. Simple. Quick. Streamlined. Easy. You can do it! Of course, if you want to embellish your cards, you can. Stickers, shimmer trim, twine, sequins, you name it.

There's multiple sizes of pocket pages and albums with Close to my Heart. The main size is 12x12 pages with a handful of page designs (featuring 3x4 and 4x6 pockets). This size is best for doing full albums for any theme, or mixing with traditional pages within an album (which is what I do).
These pages come from the Memory Protector Variety Pack.

There's also 4x4, 4x6 and 6x8 designs! These are better for smaller projects or gifts. Think birthday parties, thank you gifts for bridal party members or parents, brag books, making into recipe books, etc. They're also good for business people looking to store their samples of fabric, nail wraps (like Jamberry), or other goods. The list is endless!

One of my sister consultants out in WA uses the 4x4 Instalife album and pages to store alongside her essential oils. What a clever use for a small album, right?

This 4x6 My Creations™ Mini Book was turned into a Christmas gift for my husband featuring pictures of a Lego exhibition he was presenting at. (You can see the entire project here.) I tucked a Lego gift card in the back before wrapping it up.

These little wirebound hardcover books are not expandable in the traditional sense (you can't add pages). What you CAN do is add a variety of Flip Flaps to expand the capacity!

The newest size is 6x8. The Everyday Life album cover and pocket pages feature everything you love about pocket scrapping in a nice portable size. I've added a few pocket pages to my planner to hold treasured photos. You can also turn it into a photo album on its own! Simply purchase an album cover, 4x6 and/or 3x4 pocket pages, a Picture My Life card kit and you're ready to go to town!
