Today, I’m changing direction a bit – I’m sharing pocket scrapbooking pages created with products from the recent Penny Black Pocket Treasures release.
Before I made cards, I scrapbooked, and before that, I kept photo albums. The pocket scrapbooking pages work well for my current memory keeping style. I like the ability to create my own journaling cards and a few embellishments with the Pocket Treasures dies and stamps, using my card making tools, (die cutting machine and punches), and supplies, (patterned paper, solid cardstock and twine).
My husband and eldest son just spent several days in NYC taking in the sights, and the pages below capture some of their visit (I have several more pages started documenting the rest of their trip).
Let’s take a more detailed look at some of the journaling cards and embellishments.
Left - I used the Tagged #51-007 die to create a large journaling spot. I added a die-cut quote from A Pocket Full #51-053. Right – I often add maps to my scrapbook pages. I stamped the Let’s Chat #30-244 location indicator and cut it with the coordinating die from Tabs & Toggles #51-051.
Left - I die cut a tab with Tabs & Toggles #51-051 and stamped it with a sentiment from Life’s Journals #30-247. I attached it to the photo with a Tiny Attacher. Right – I die cut a journaling card with A Pocket Full #51-053 and added the stamped sentiment from Remember This #30-246.
Left – I die cut the frame from Polaroid #51-057 and put it over a photo. I added it to a journaling card stamped with a sentiment and ledger lines from Life’s Journals #30-247. Right – I cut the number frame from Picture This #51-056 and paired it with a journaling card.
Thanks for joining me in this departure from cardmaking!
