Simple is the name of the game when it comes to scrapping for me recently. Plus, if I am being honest, there hasn’t been a lot of scrapping to do, because activities this summer have been limited. I haven’t been doing my official job as family photographer very well! I am getting excited for the end of summer and the beginning of fall though. I’ll be diving into some more disc bound scrapbook, and there will be some fun projects in the works. Until then, there is at least one more simple pocket page process to share…

For these layouts, I wanted to dive into my Hip Kit Club for August. It has been a crazy couple of months around here with my parents staying at our house in the midst of basement renovations, so I had not had the chance to check the kit out very closely. It is a fun, vibrant kit, but not necessarily my taste for all the pieces. That is okay though, I like having the variety available in my craft room, and I am sure I will find a use for it all!

The thing that I am struggling with when it comes to pocket pages and scrapbooking is that my pages feel boring at times. Almost like they are too simple. I am not completely sure that I have settled in on a pocket page style that really fits with my normal colorful style. It is certainly fun exploring these new layouts, but can be challenging as we get out of our comfort zones. In the end, I do feel like simple and quick is a better fit for me when it comes to memory keeping. Otherwise the task quickly feels overwhelming, and I seriously doubt whether or not it will get done.

Have you given pocket pages a try yet? What is your take on them? Do you keep it simple or do you like to embellish the individual cards? I’d love to hear how you tackle this kind of project.

Keep it creative,
