All About Albums: Pocket Scrapbooking Style!

Joannie McBride, online editor

The pocket appeal is easy to understand with scrappers everywhere loving the ease with which they can capture everyday memories. This simplistic approach involves using segmented page protectors in various sizes and gives you the creative freedom to custom design any album and make it as simple or complex as fits your style.

In 0ur latest special issue, All About Albums, we show you creative ways to use this easy approach to memory keeping. Like this fabulous layout by Amy Yingling on page 55.

Hello by Amy Yingling, as seen in the All About Albums special issue of Creating Keepsakes.

Design Tip: Instead of placing all your elements inside your pockets, attach die cuts or journlaing spots to the outside of your pocket using decorative tape.

Design Tip: Take a fresh approach on a planner and document your daily activities or list of current favorites on a journlaing card.

Check out All About Albums for additional ideas on how to use pocket sleeves in fun new ways!
