Whenever you’re celebrating something special, there are always a multitude of stories and memories to capture. Today, we’ll be showing off a quick and easy approach to birthday memory keeping that shows a unique way to include more memories into just a couple of pages using pocket scrapbooking!
If you’re not familiar with pocket scrapbooking, it’s a memory keeping technique that focuses on bringing a variety of small elements together into a cohesive collage. With a traditional scrapbooking page, it can be difficult to find a way to include all the photos and journaling sections that belong to the story you’re telling without the page becoming busy or overcrowded. With pocket scrapbooking, however, this problem can be eliminated as the collage effect allows for a large quantity of photos, journaling, and artistic elements.
One of our favorite things to include in pocket scrapbooking layouts are Picture My Life™ Cards. These 3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ cards are created along with the exclusive paper collections available in our catalogs. (Check out our current paper collections in the March–April catalog here!) Because the cards are designed in conjunction with these collections using colors from our exclusive color palette, it’s a breeze to mix them with other products from the collection to create coordinated and polished artwork.
When crafting with Picture My Life™ Cards, you can save time, paper, and fuss, all while creating something truly unique to you. To demonstrate how easy it can be to create a pocket scrapbooking layout of your own, we’ve put together an instructional video featuring one of our Home Office employees and veteran crafter, Kristina Livingstone. In this video, you can learn and craft along with Kristina as she creates a fun 2-page pocket scrapbooking layout! Enjoy!
As memory keepers, we adore any chance we get to explore new techniques and methods to preserve our best-loved stories, and the pocket scrapbooking technique is one of our favorites! What stories would you tell using this method? Let us know in the comments below!
