Welcome to the November Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek week! Woohoooo!!! This month we are welcoming a new line to Taylored Expressions called: Pockets and Pages! This line works perfectly with all the different scrapbooking products that are out there whether you are into pocket scrapbooking or just regular scrapbooking - and works perfectly with cardmaking as well!!
So here is my confession - I have been wanting to do a Project Life kind of scrapbook for SO long now - BUT, every time I want to get started - I would get so overwhelmed with all the different products that are out there and just kind of freeze. So I was so excited that Taylored Expressions was going to carry their own Pockets & Pages Line and took the plunge in starting pocket scrapbooking!
If you are a pocket scrapbooker you are going to love all the new products that fit right in and make it super easy to scrapbook! If you are brand new to scrapbooking-pocket style here are some tips to help you get started that I have found out in this process:
- Figure out what you want to scrapbook - for example, I decided to have two scrapbooks - one for my daughter and one for my son - this then helped me get my photos in order and start to arrange and then have them printed out
- Size: Pick an album size that works for you - a 12x12 size or a smaller 6x8 - I liked the smaller size because I thought it might be a nice way to ease my self into pocket scrapbooking and then move onto bigger sizes
- Pick out some fun papers - either you can use the same paper line throughout the album or just for some of the pages
- Do you want to scrap weekly or monthly or randomly? I decided to scrap bi-monthly and pull up the pictures that really stood out as fun from that month
- Get ready to have fun pocket scrapbooking!
Here is a view of one of the pages - there are 4 pockets in this page and I used the new P&P Essentials 3x4 dies to create each of the pockets - makes a perfect background and mat for scrapbooking and comes with a fun arrow and speech bubble. I also used the new stamp set: Pockets and Pages InstaFun (which comes with a fun camera die! to create some instafun with my photos :)
My DD went shopping at Target - Tar-jhay - and she had to try on some fun glasses - it was so cute to see her in them and I had to snap a pic - she has so much sass and fun - and I love our mother-daughter date nights:
Here is a picture of the camera that comes with the Pockets & Pages InstaFun stamp set - I LOVE this fun camera - and stamped the sentiment InstaLove in the center and used the soon to be released Sweet & Simple Apha Lower dies to create the word: Cutie (I love the toothless grin of my 24-7 cutie pie :)
Here is a pic of the opposite page - I loved documenting this milestone - my daughter is now riding WITHOUT training wheels!! Talk about being such a big girl!!! I used the new Pockets &Pages Bubble Out die to create a space for me to write and journal about her accomplishments and I also used the P&P Essentials 4x4 to create the pocket s and the Bars of the Year to create the die: October for the bottom of the page - love how this turned out!!
