Hi there everyone,
I am sure that if you scrapbook regularly that by now you will have run across Pocket-style scrapbooking commonly known as Project Life (trademarked by Becky Higgins) or known as Project 365 which is very popular among photography buffs.
These are usually albums that are kept to document everyday life on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and often incorporate the concept of taking one photo a day. Usually these types of albums are meant to be quick and easy with minimal journaling on journal cards and pages are scrapped in a grid format – again keeping it simple so the album actually gets completed! 😉
Whether or not you choose to use a traditional paper approach using the many available products on the market OR a digital approach there is a huge variety of product out there to choose from. There are now oodles of fun templates and journal cards available in both paper and digital format for almost any kind of theme you could imagine including the everyday life type themes.
One of the problems I have run into being a Storybook Creator 4.0/ Artisan scrapper is the lack of Pocket or grid style digital templates in the .page or even .png format. So many of them on the market only come in Photoshop format. They have been hard to find until now!
I was so excited when I found out that Laurie Callison was coming out with a set of 20, yes TWENTY, digital templates in .page especially for this type of scrapbooking! They work in both SBC 4.0 and Artisan and come in a bundled set and are available on her site.
I immediately contacted her and made some pages for her featuring some Disney photos of mine, naturally! I am sharing the first one today with you. I had so much fun using the template that had 4 square photo holders because I had taken some fun instagrams that I particularly loved during my trip this past June. I envisioned a kind of 4 parks – 1 world type of page. I did have a fun castle shot for the Magic Kingdom but used the one of the Mickey head cake-pop instead for a different twist to the page.
One thing that I especially love about these templates is the border that she has incorporated around the edge. The majority of templates that I have seen usually take the photos right to the edge of the page but these templates have this fun 1 inch border that you can leave white or black if you like OR fill with a fun paper, overlay or even wrapped text if you like. For this page I used my most favorite paper from Mary’s Back to Basics kit. I love how it turned out and this page was done in less than 5 minutes!
Mary has a great Disney kit entitled “Trip Report” that would also be great for Pocket scrapbooking. It includes journal cards & lot of word art perfect for documenting details about your travel to Disney, your resort, your room and all of those fun little details that make up a trip to Disney World! **Subscribe to our newsletter and receive this kit for free! **
