Pocket Page Scrapbooking : What is It and What Do You Need?
If you've followed me a bit, you would know that I really enjoy making pocket pages to capture my memories.
I can imagine that when you see pocket pages, you might not know where to start. There are so many options and if you look on social media, complicated seems to be the norm.
First, I want to start with a little bit of history. Before pocket page scrapbooking came about, most scrapbookers made 12x12 inch scrap layouts. Per page I would process 1 or maybe a few photos, but each page became a work of art in itself and each page would take me an hour or two.
In 2009, pocket page scrapbooking was born.
Pocket page covers come in many different sizes and layouts, so there is always a cover that fits your number of photos and ideas. There are sleeves in 12x12 inches, 9x12 inches, 6x8 inches and also 3x8 inches, among others. I use all sizes interchangeably and combine them in my albums. That way even the little things in life can be captured for later.
What do you need to make pocket pages?
Actually, the answer to that question is very simple. You need an album, pocket page sleeves, and pocket page cards (or paper that you cut yourself to size). That's enough to get started. On journaling cards you can put the story to go with the pictures.
Of course, if you want to make it easy on yourself, you can opt for the DLS Design Pocket Page Kit. The kit includes everything you need to make nicely dressed pocket pages. All you have to add yourself are page protectors of your choice and your photos of course!
The Pocket Page kit makes it very easy and quick to create a page. It is very convenient that the cards in the pocket page kit are ready-made, so you won't spend time cutting paper. Everything from the kit fits together nicely and so you don't spend time looking for things together. You can choose a subscription where you get a nice kit every month to capture your memories. It is also possible to buy a separate kit and try out if a kit is something for you. Anyway, I really like how it works and it really makes memorykeeping a lot easier and faster for me.
Below you can see some examples of pages I made with different DLS design pocket page kits. I only used products from the kit on these pages and almost nothing extra.
I hope I was able to tell you more about pocket page scrapbooking and that, like me, you will feel like making pocket pages too!
