Pocket pages are popping up all around, with their simple style yet classic look it’s the perfect way to scrapbook. Pocket style scrapbooking can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish to make it, create a miniature masterpiece on every card or simply fill the pocket and forget it, the choice is yours!
With so many different styles of pocket page scrapbooking to choose from it’s simply an addiction that might need its own 12 step program. Here’s a little sneak peek at some fun new pocket page kits! Summer is upon us and this new Good Day Sunshine set from Simple Stories is perfect for quick summer pages. If this summer has you traveling check out Crate Paper’s Open Road line.
October Afternoon’s Public Library line was fun inspiration for these pages. I used printed transparency as a base for the 6” x 4” pieces then added photos and embellishments to them.
Tip: Place thicker dimensional elements on the outside of the pockets so photos and cards don’t slide out of the protectors.
