Hello and welcome to The Pocket Source‘s very first blog hop. We are all so excited to share a little bit about why we love The Pocket Source with you all today and to share some examples of our own pocket scrapbooking.
My name is Stacia and I’ve been scrapbooking for YEARS, digital scrapbooking for about six years and pocket scrapbooking since 2012. Somehow I managed to turn a blind eye to those cute little journal cards for over a year before diving into the “pocket page pool”! I started with physical core kits and kept adding more and more digital elements until I decided to make the switch this year to a mostly digital format.
I use a pocket scrapping format to do my weekly everyday life spreads and different sized insert pages for busy weeks. I think they are also perfect for scrapping multi photo events like birthdays and vacations. For example, I used the new March Storyteller Collection from Just Jaimee to document the Project Life Card Swap that I shared with some of my friends at a retreat last year.

My own personal style tends toward lots of colors, lots of embellishments and lots of stories. Like these two of my 2014 Week 4:

One of the many things I LOVE about The Pocket Source is that the gallery is FILLED with layouts of all sizes, all styles, both physical and digital. Truly, everyone should be able to find inspiration to add to their own existing bag of tricks or be WOWED into trying something completely new. I know that once I finally tried a more artsy style, I loved it and continue to expand my own personal skill set in that avenue.
I’m lucky to be on the creative teams for a number of digital designers that make pocket scrapping friendly products so if you ever stop back by my blog (or scroll down to previous posts) you’ll be certain to see some examples using their work. I also took advantage of the opportunity to have a subscription to Studio Calico that was shared during the grand opening week of The Pocket Source so you’ll probably see me trying my hand at a little physical pocket scrapping too in the very near future.
We hope you check out everyone’s blogs today. We all want to share our enthusiasm for this hobby with you.
