Happy Monday everyone! I am here today to bring a bit of motivation to get your creative juices flowing, give you ideas and showcase some great items and layouts to help motivate you. Today we are going to talk about pocket scrapbooking. I realize that most people know what that is. However, there might be a few that do not. I am going to explain what it is, show you some great examples from Amanda’s gallery and follow up with some products. So let us get started.

 

What is pocket scrapbooking? It is pretty straight forward. Pocket scrapbooking is a blocked style of scrapbooking. Meaning that you have your base page and on top of it you have everything in block shapes. Usually square and rectangular. Inside these blocks you can put anything you like. Usually that means photos, papers, cards and elements. Here is a great tutorial on pocket scrapbooking.

I took a look around Amanda’s gallery to see what I could find that would be good examples of pocket scrapbooking. Amanda’s designs are versatile. Great for traditional and pocket layouts. Here are a few examples of pocket layouts. This will give you an idea on what pocket scrapbooking is.  (images are linked of course!)

April Bingo Challenge #7: Tuck It In by KingsQueen82 | This is a great example of how to use cards and stitching on your layout. I love using and seeing stitching around everything on pocket layouts. It gives it more of the “pocket” feel.

2016 – Week6 – p1 by jennv | One of the more popular themes of pocket scrapbooking is Project 52, otherwise known as P52. Where you take your life week-by-week and scrap it. The everyday and no so everyday. This is a great example of that.

 

Conner by khakisack | Your pocket layouts do not have to have stitching or actual pockets. This is a wonderful example of the blocking part of pocket scrapbooking. She took it one step further and all her blocks have curved edges. Great idea!

 

Las Vegas & Utah Vacation Page 3 by lovely1m | As you can see, they do not have to be big pockets either. You can get about as many photos as you like on your layout.

Those are just a few examples of what you can do to pocket your digital scrapbooking layouts. If you are looking for further inspiration Sweet Shoppe has a blog post every Tuesday with just that. Inspiration! Tuck It In Tuesday.


You can use any kit you like for your pocket layouts. You can find some out there that are just for that. I looked around Amanda’s store and here are some items I think would be great for scrapping pocket layouts. Most of her kits have cards that go with them. You can buy them separately or in a bundle. You can see those options HERE.
