The Pocket Source Blog Hop


Welcome to The Pocket Source Blog Hop. You should have arrived from Cathy’s blog and I’m so glad you’re here! Your next stop on the hop is Melissa. I’m Shaina and I’ve been scrapbooking since my youth. My first job in high school was at a scrapbook store, and between that and my mom’s memory books, it just stuck. I discovered pocket scrapbooking a couple years ago and just dove in head first. I love how versatile this makes memory keeping, and its been amazing to see how fast its grown.

And that’s where The Pocket Source comes in! I really don’t know how I discovered The Pocket Source…but once I was there I was hooked. Its definitely my kind of online community. I love the forums and all the conversations happening, the gallery full of inspiration already, and Leslie, the creator of the site, she is one smart cookie! I think its brilliant to have a pocket scrapbooking specific site where we are all on the same (pocket filled) page.

I shared last week the beginnings of my 2014 Project Life scrapbook, and today I have Week 2 to share with you.


I have been really striving to use up my stash of products before I go spending more money, so lots of these embellishments are years old. My favorite old standby: the manila tag. I also included a couple sticks from the Chalk Studio line by My Minds Eye. Chalk is one of my favorite trends right now.

I am a big fan of using my handwriting on my pocket pages. I can fit a ton of journaling on those little cards and I try to utilize all the space I have. This page also has some stamping. The stamps are little dollar ones from Target ages ago. Still work; still love them! And I love seeing my ideas come together for my weekly cards. My brush scripted week intro looks so cool in the pocket. Glad I followed through with that idea!

I loved the list journaling card from the Sunshine Edition Project Life kit. It was the perfect way to get lots of details about our weekend in one card. I’ve also been making sure to take pictures of all the posters of all the movies we go see to make sure they get in my album too. Little details that will be fun reminders in years to come looking back.
