Pocket Page Scrapbooking & More 
Friday, June 5 1 pm
Saturday, June 6 10:30 am

Pocket page scrapbooking is a quick and easy way to scrapbook.  In this class, we’ll use Project Life pocket pages, cards from the Project Life Strawberry Edition, and a variety of embellishments to create four projects. I will share tips for using pocket pages to document everything from your everyday life to a special event to a recent vacation. I’ll also share how I incorporates pocket pages in with my traditional 12x12 scrapbook pages, along with a variety of examples of other ways to re-purpose these cards.

This class is perfect for:
*anyone new to pocket page scrapbooking (or scrapbooking in general) who wants to learn a quick & easy method of preserving memories
*experienced pocket page scrapbookers looking for new tips and ideas for pocket-based memory keeping and ways to incorporate 12x12 layouts with pocket pages
*paper and digital scrapbookers who want to include pocket pages in their albums
*anyone with a stash of pocket cards waiting to be used on creative projects
*cardmakers and paper crafters looking for a fun new supply to add to their paper stash for creating a variety of projects
In this class, you’ll create:

1. A two-page pocket page spread: Bring to class 8-14 photos to create a two-page pocket page layout. You can use the front & back of one page protector, or choose two different page protectors for a side-by-side layout like my example below.

2. A 12x12 layout: Bring to class 1-5 photos to create a traditional 12x12 layout with a white cardstock background. Here's my example using two photos.

3. A greeting card and 4. A gift tag: Pocket cards can be used in a variety of ways. In class, we'll create a greeting card and a gift tag. I'll share other examples and ideas for using these cards as well.

Bring to class:
*8-14 Photos to complete a two-page pocket page.
*1-5 Photos to complete a 12x12 layout.
(Choose photos that you want to scrapbook - photos depicting a day in your life, a week in your family’s life, a birthday party, a recent vacation, snapshots of your house or garden or family members, etc. Your photos can be all 4x6 or a variety of sizes!)
*Basic tool kit (scissors/paper cutter, adhesive, pens)
*Optional – chalking ink, corner rounder

[Completed pocket pages, layouts, cards & gifts tags will vary from samples shown.]
