Pocket Scrapbooking: Embark on Adventures

Thanks for joining us today on the blog where we have a spread jam packed with pocket scrapbooking inspiration! 

If you're new to the pocket scrapbooking trend, let us show you how it's done! The words 'pocket scrapbooking' describe exactly what it is. The page protectors, available in a variety of sizes and styles, are divided into pockets that allow you to easily slip in photos and journaling cards. 

Today's spread uses pocket page protectors from American Crafts and journaling cards from We R Memory Keepers' Chalkboard Collection. The entire spread documents one event - A day of trail riding with family. Rather than creating many different 12x12 layouts, each card becomes it's own "page" with its own title and journaling. Because the same color combo was used throughout, the individual pockets are unified. 

Here's a close up of the right side of the page. A typewriter was used to create all the journaling. We love handwriting, but why not dig out that old machine and give it a try?! Some of the journaing was typed directly onto the cards, while others were typed onto white cardstock and cut into strips. 

We love the window cards included in this kit from WRMK. It makes it so easy to include a photo and some journaling. Here the journaling was kept simple and to the point. But oh so funny too! 

Here's a look at the right side of the spread. The title card is so fun! We cut a few hearts and arrows from journaling cards in the collection to create our own embellishments. 

We used a few sticker alphas too! Titling made easy. We pulled out our sewing machine to add an additional element to the spread too! 

What do you think of using sewing machines and typewriters in your paper crafts? Too much work or lots of fun?
