Pocket Pages

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of Taylor Stamped. I do receive financial compensation and material product from American Crafts and A Walk Down Memory Lane to develop my craft posts, but all ideas and opinions are my own. Some links are affiliate links.

I don't do a lot of pocket pages. I love the look of them, but I'm just not very good at planning the front and back sides. I have so many photos from Ireland, though (especially ones of the beautiful countryside) that creating some pocket pages is a perfect way to get them scrapped.

 Here is the front side of my pocket page.

One of the best things about pocket pages is that you have built in memorabilia pockets. I wanted to save our map of Galway, and I could do so easily and quickly.  I used cards and embellishments from Simple Stories Gold Snap Pack to fill in the pockets that didn't have photos. I used an "Enjoy the View" word set from the Heidi Swapp Minc Diecut Words. I covered the words in Therm O Web Turquoise Satin Foil. I had to cut the words in half to get them to fit into 2 separate pockets.

Here is the back side of that same pocket page.

The left side uses a pocket page, and the right side mimics the pocket page, without the use of a segmented page. I wanted the layout to look cohesive, but the pocket page wasn't going to work for the next layout in my book.

These layouts aren't fancy, but they're a great way to get my trip memories into a book and keep the memorabilia accessible.

 Thanks for stopping by!
