Scrapping My Stash - Pocket Pages

Just when I thought I was getting into a routine with working full-time while the kiddos were in school, LIFE happened again.  I am suddenly, unexpectedly homeschooling two of my kids and find myself with less time to do traditional scrapbook layouts or mini-albums.  I've been wanting to start pocket page style layouts and National Scrapbooking Day gave me the perfect reason to start.

Every May I donate a card-making party to charity.  This year, the party fell on National Scrapbooking Day, so I decided to document our photos from the last party to show them.   I create 3 cards as templates for the ladies and they always add their own personality to them. The girls had a great time, stamping, inking, and die-cutting.

 I really like being to able add dimensional embellies to these pockets.

You really don't have to buy the pocket pages supplies; you can use what you have on hand.  I took a bunch of journaling cards and cut them down to size, and layered them with scrapbook paper, and a scalloped edge envelope.  With only 30 minutes start to finish (printing and cutting photos and pulling out supplies) I think I can get do some serious memory-keeping done with this method, look out!

How did you spend National Scrapbooking Day?
