A pocket full of Memories Blog Hop


Hi everyone!  Welcome!  Thanks so much to Jess from KinderStampo for including me in  the fun today!  You should have arrived here from Singrid's blog.  If you just stopped by for a visit, click here to start at the beginning.

Jess asked us to make a mini album with pockets in it.....sounds easy enough.  There are so many amazing mini albums on the web I had a hard time deciding what to try.   I found this simple tutorial from K Werner designs....I loved the fact that it only used one 12 x 12 sheet.  I was also inspired by this mini book that my DT sister Lowri made using the Echo Park - For the Record line.


All the paper elements are from Echo Park - For the Record.  I cut the label shapes from Elegant Edges.

The inside left has a pocket....I trimmed down a skinny notepad from Paper Trey Ink to fit.  The measuring tape border on the edge creates a small pocket to slip in a note or business card. 


The left side has two pockets....I cut tags from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and adhered some more of the little journal cards from the For the Record kit. 


The last two pages I just added some mats for some pictures and the last pocket has a third mat.


I think it turned out so pretty....was a fun way to help myself stay organized and have a few pictures of my kids on hand.  I always  have to search my phone for a picture when someone asks to see one.
This would also make a great holiday planner if you just changed up the paper. 

I have some BLOG CANDY!
