Penny Black Pocket Treasures

Today, I’m sharing pocket page scrapbooking layouts created with the Penny Black Pocket Treasures collection. These layouts capture memories from early August of our golden retriever, Ginger, who passed away last Friday. She was diagnosed with nasal cancer at Christmas, and every day of the past eight months has been a gift. I can’t begin to express how happy I am that we have these photos celebrating some of our final days with her. These pages will go in an album with the pages I created last month, which were featured in this Scrapbook and Cards Today post. (Scroll to the end of the Scrapbook and Cards Today post for the 6″ x 8″ pocket pages of Ginger.)

AugustScrapbooking1I used the 51-007 Tagged die to create a large journaling spot. I cut the number frame from 51-056 Picture This and paired it with a journaling card. Another journaling card is stamped with a sentiment and ledger lines from 30-247 Life’s Journals and cut with one of the dies in 51-053 A Pocket Full set.


I die cut the “love” from 51-052 Texting. I cut the library pocket from 51-053 A Pocket Full. Right now, the pocket holds a ferry ticket, but in time I plan to add a page of handwritten journaling with special memories of Ginger. I stamped the conversation bubble with a stamp from the 30-244 Let’s Chat set and die cut it with a matching die from the 51-053 A Pocket Full set.

  2. What a beautiful way to honor Ginger! My heart goes out to you and your family for your loss. I sure hope they can figure out SOON why Goldens are so prone to cancers!

    My medical service dog, Gracie, is also a 10yo golden retriever named Gracie. That smiling grey face of your sweet Ginger, looks so familiar – and just melts my heart every.single.time I see their grins!
