Last week at Mydigitalstudio.net the challenge was pocket pages. I was intrigued, but didn't submit an entry. This week, they have extended the challenge and I took that as a sign that I needed to try this fun way to scrapbook. You may wonder, "what is a pocket page?" You will probably know them better as Project Life pages which were created by Becky Higgins (I have been a fan since her days at Creating Keepsakes magazine!!) Basically, she has designed divided scrapbook page protectors with pockets for basic sized photos and then basic sized cards for journaling, embellishing or just as a filler. I think it's pretty brilliant (plus so simple and quick), but I haven't really tried doing any yet. I'm not very good at trying new things right away--I have to check things out first (sometimes for a long while!) Anyway, after last weeks MDS blog hop, I watched Erica's video on how she makes pocket cards with MDS and it really got me thinking. I can set up my own pocket templates and save them on MDS! I used the standard size 4 x 6 photo size and then halved that for my journaling/filler card and then as I moved them around and found the layout I liked, I selected "File" then "Save Page Photo Layout" and named each page (I think I used "Pocket Page 1,2,3, etc.") So after having made several templates, I jumped in and made a page for the Mydigitalstudio.net challenge. I am sooooooooo far behind on my scrapbooking so don't judge, these pics are from 2005!
