Yearbook: Three Reasons Why Card Makers Should Try Pocket Pages

Happy Tuesday! It’s Tyra and I’m here to share three reasons why pocket page style scrapbooking is an awesome way for card makers to get into memory keeping.

1. Smaller canvas size

This year I’m using a 6×8 album to preserve memories. I’m finding that the smaller canvas size is less intimidating.  Pocket pages are all about 6×8, 6×4, 3×4 or even smaller! So the card makers out there can use the same design principles to create their own custom journaling cards on a similar canvas size.

2. Photo collages

Many card makers love combining different textures, colors, sentiments to create a look. Photo collage involves combining pictures, to tell a story.  I like using Picmonkey to combine several pictures from the same week to create a “week in review” collage. The best part is that once I created my collage I’m done capturing a week (or a month) full of memories!

3. “The days are long, but the years are short.”

I love using pocket pages, especially a smaller format this year to quickly capture my family’s memories. I have figured out a process that I enjoy and will help me accomplish my goal of capturing a year’s full of memories, using familiar design concepts I borrowed from card making.
