Quick & Easy Pocket Scrapbooking!

Welcome!  I'm so glad you stopped by today!  

Our photos help us tell a story, reminiscence and share what's most important.  Life is busy.  Yet, if YOU do not tell YOUR story, who will?  With just a few minutes a week, you CAN create beautiful memory albums to cherish for generations to come.  

Along with creating traditional layouts, I often enjoy the convenience of pocket pages.  Divided Memory Protectors to the rescue!  Let's check them out!

These high quality divided Memory Protectors and Pocket Plus Protectors are such a time saver!  Whether your album is 12 x 12 or 8 x 6, divided pages are a great addition!  My brother as well as my Mom (may she Rest in Peace) love the ease of quickly slipping printed photos into divided protectors. Do you have a preference?  Let me know!

Let's take a look at how I did this using some of my photos.   On the 12 x 12 pocket page above, I used Carolina cardstock to create 4 x 6 inch mats for my photos.  How appropriate for our visit to North Carolina!  😎

My photos of the beautiful Quilt Garden area of the North Carolina Arboretum were a perfect fit for my Quilt pattern 'Zip Strip' and fun rubber embellishments from the Craft On collection.  I absolutely love this collection, and I think you will also!  

I love that divided page protectors come in a variety of sizes!  Here, when creating a 'Recipes for Joyful Living' 8 x 6 Everyday Life album, I used a mix of photos and PML Cards. PML, are also known as Picture My Life Cards.  

I cropped my candid photo and adhered it to a 4 x 6 PML card.  This particular set, now retired, was absolutely perfect for folks to write their favorite 'recipes' for joyful living -- food or not.  Easy peasy!  If you would like similar cards, click here.   

Remember, even with your Pocket pages, you need to journal!  You certainly wouldn't want your children, grandchildren, or, gasp, yourself, trying to decipher who the heck is in the 'treasured' album!  LOL!

Along with the Craft With Heart Scrapbooking Club, I highly recommend Flip Flaps, Pocket Plus, and PML Memory Protectors to make your memory keeping faster, simpler and easier!  💖 Stayed tuned for more ideas!

Happy Papercrafting,


  1. I love pocket scrapbooking! I remember, back in the 90s, when my kids were little. I loved scrapbooking but didn't really have time for it, so I remember thinking, why don't I just put the photos in the pockets and put pretty paper in the pockets too and use it to journal and decorate. And, then, several years later, it became a big trend! I find it a lot easier and faster than my old scrapbooking methods. Thanks for sharing at Thursday Favorite Things!
