Camping Nights in Pockets

Hi crafty friends! Natalie here with you on this last day of September sharing my favorite way to include numerous photos on a scrapbook page. I love to use pocket pages. They can house so many pictures without any hassle of figuring out how the layout will look.

I used the Camping Tags Double Sided paper as some of my pocket cards. I backed my smaller photos with papers from the travel paper collections.

Those adorable Great Outdoors Epoxy Stickers are the perfect tiny embellishment for a 3×4 pocket.

Using this Discover USA paper dictated the colors in my layout . I printed these 2×3 tiny photos 4 to a 4×6 photo collage & they work great for pocket pages.

My rules for pocket pages are typically to keep from putting two full 3×4 photos right next to one another, as well as break up the pattern paper with some solids.

I usually fit all of my journaling onto a specific journaling card, but sometimes I will add extra snippets with small photos on a tiny die cut tag.

Repeating this fun patterned Passport Stamps double sided page in another 3×4 pocket, along with the stripes of the same colors in the 4×6 pocket, helps tie in the rows.

I love how well these Great Outdoors Puffy Stickers are the best size for a 3×4 pocket!

I hope you’ve been inspired to create a pocket page – they’re such a great, easy, quick way to document some of your memories. I love to combine them with a 12×12 traditional layout!

This month, we got to play along with a really, really fun and great product! I loved these Pen Blades…really! They are really great craft knives..in fact, I even found my husband checking them out while I was working, and since I had three he asked if he could have one! I used my Pen Blades to fussy cut some elements from the Baby Girl collection pack and I ended up creating not one, not two, but three 8X8 pocket pages for my neice’s baby album Im making for her.

The Pen Blades were a fabulous tool for fussy cutting the intricate flowers and banners to create 4X4 cards for my pocket pages.

I have video to share as well showing how all these pages came together!

Have A Lovely Day!
