Pocket Scrapbooking: A Baby Girl Album

Pocket Scrapbooking? Snap Cards? What are you talking about??? Great questions that have been asked of me and I'll try to clear up the mystery!

Snap cards are a great way to add journaling and embellishments to your traditional and pocket scrapbooking pages. This post features a pocket scrapbooking baby girl album using the 4X6, 3X4 baby girl snap cards as well as the coordinating sticker pack. It was so fun and makes scrapbooking go a lot faster as you just have to slide things in the pockets.
These are the 3X4 cards. The photo shows each of the cards included in the pack and the shadow of each is what the back of the card looks like. The beauty is that these are ready to go and can just be slid into the photo album pockets, add some photos and your scrapbook is done. If you want more dimension, you can add stamping and glitter and buttons and twine and other embellishments and can keep adding until it fits your style.

Here are a few pages from a recent baby shower gift. 
I started with the 6X8 leather album because it is for a baby girl, after all. :) The quality of the album is excellent and it's a great size for scrapbooking your treasured memories, especially for specific events. This album covers the first year for the baby. :)
There are 6X8 pages so I created a cover page with some stamping and added a 4X6 snap card, buttons and baker's cording. When the baby arrives, all they'll have to do is add photos to finish off the book.
Since the a muse studio cardstock is one-sided (perfect for cardmaking and scrapbooking!), I had the opportunity to add some stamping to the back to make a unique and special background paper for photos.
There are a variety of page styles from 2 - 3X4 and 1 - 4X6 pocket or 4 - 3X4 pockets or 2 - 4X6 pockets or 2X2 pockets and more. These are all from Simple Stories and we're thrilled to be carrying their products!
There are snap cards for each month in the first year where you can write the weight, height, highlights, etc. I love that they make it so easy to document the special moments. :) 
Glitter, buttons, stickers, snap cards and cardstock. Easy touches to add so much to the finished album.
And, the cards themselves are so cute and have so many wonderful patterns and sentiments.
Die-cuts and stickers added and yet plenty of room left for baby pics!
And, for those pages that don't have specific snap cards, I cut up some of the Everything's Rosy paper pack and filled in the pockets. They can remove those when they add photos or can use them as background paper for the photos.

The beauty is that each of these albums can be personalized to your style and the pockets can be all photos without any snap cards and papers. Or, they can be all cardstock and paper or they can be a great mixture of both. You can get pages that you just slide in the cards and add photos. Or, you can get pages that are made for your Instagram photos. You can fill the pockets with custom mini pages that you create with your stamps and stickers and embellishments.

I hope you pick up some of our albums, snap cards and stickers and start playing! We've got cards for every day, travel, wedding, birthday and more! Fun stuff!!

And, if you're a 12X12 scrapbooker, our pages fit on the rings in your album. So, you can add smaller pages mixed into your album to add extra photos or to create visual interest! 

Have a wonderfully creative day!!
