Memory keeping is super important because you can look back and everything is documented. It can be passed down for years as well! The pocket style is quick and simple! I have done all types of scrapbooking from small books to big books, digital and now pocket style. Here are my tips and ideas on the pocket style!
With all of the memory keeping I have done, I have loved how little supplies you need to create an amazing album! Of course you can always get all the goodies and have lots of options. Although that sometimes makes it overwhelming to have too many options! Just to get started, all you need is an Album, Pages, Journal Pens, and a Card Collection Kit of your choice! My favorites are always the all occasion/every day ones! I love bright colors too!
I honestly think that Project Life or Pocket Style Memory Keeping is the best way to go for someone who has never scrapbooked before. Project Life is cheaper, easier, and quicker. Now of course that can always be viewed differently by each person but being a scrapbooker, a digital scrapbooker, and a Project Life scrapbooker, that is what I would say.
Cheaper: Of course, you can always purchase tons of goodies but technically you could go as simple as the items above. You can always get a paper trimmer, adhesive, and go all out but you can also go simple too.
Easier: With Project Life, you can drop your photos in the pockets, journal on a card, and drop it in. I love that and how everything in the card collection coordinates. There is no need to pick your colors, papers, embellishments, and find ways to fill a large album page.
Quicker: It can be fairly quick to complete an entire album because of the few items you need and the ease of coordination.
Of course, you can always embellish, change up the colors, add layers, and go all out with Project Life as well! 🙂 It really is a fun way to keep your memories cherished forever. I hope this has given you some ideas and inspiration to start preserving your memories!!! You can see some of my other albums here, here, and here!
