My first venture into pocket page scrapbooking was with my daughter’s first year album – this is what got me hooked. I used the Baby for Her core kit, patterned paper and coordinating American Crafts cardstock.
After Miss A’s first year album was done, I began catching up on pictures I hadn’t yet scrapbooked.
Pictures of my childhood dog – using the Project Life Dogs theme kit.
New Year’s Eve 2010 – Cobalt core kit.
A pregnancy page – Blush core kit
Here’s some of my traditional 12×12 scrapbook pages. It’s neat to see how my style changed through the years. Even as a traditional scrapbooker, my style was simple. Lots of cardstock, not a ton of embellishments, and an attempt to get several pictures per page. I think that’s what really attracted me to the idea of pocket scrapbooking.

My move to 12×12 toploading pages.
One of the few times I ever used stamps.
Eyelet embellishments and color-blocking templates. I used those templates a TON.
Patterned paper and acrylic painted chipboard letters.
