Lining My Pockets

A new year, a new approach!  If you’re like me, you’re always looking to try new things.  Especially products that will help me get more photos in my albums.  Now, I’m not looking to “catch up” or rush through my scrapbooking.  I enjoy the process of cutting paper and placing embellishments too much for that.  And would fun would it be to not have any photos to scrap?

But, at a scrapbooking retreat late last year, a fellow scrapbooker (our very own Tena!) was doing something I hadn’t seen before.  She was combining her normal 12x12 or 8x11 pages with the super-popular pocket pages.  I can scrap my normal pages, but have a ready way to get lots of full-size 4x6 photos included as well.  I love that!  

So, I’ve ordered some refill pages for a vacation album I’m working on.  Between my husband and myself, we took over 4,000 photos!  Now, I don’t plan to use them all, but you can see why I’m willing to give this approach a try – LOL!

In anticipation of my order of refill pages getting here, I’ve started to create some of the “fillers” I’ll use in the pockets.  I’ll have 3x4 and 2x4 pockets.  I created one for some photos of an Afternoon Tea we had on our cruise.  I even created one for some of the days when we had overcast weather.  

I can journal on the larger ones or simply use them as decorative parts of the pages.  How cool is that?  I love learning from my fellow scrapbookers!  Leave a comment and share something you’ve learned lately.

Happy Scrapping,


  1. I like your pocket fillers! Great idea to combine pocket pages and full scrapbook pages. I have been dragging my heels on scrapbooking my cruise for that very reason, I printed way too many pictures! I might have to put that on my must do list for 2015.

  2. Thanks for sharing, I have been exploring this very idea as I need ways that will help me pick up the pace and get more pictures in my albums. Since I'm thinking about switching to the three ring style albums.

  3. These turned out really cute, and I great way to use your stash, while incorporating more pictures in an album. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love how these turned out Moanica, looking forward to seeing the finished pages.
