This is my first attempt at pocket scapbooking. As a mum with a baby and a newbie to scrapbooking I wanted to see how easy and fast the pocket scrapbooking could be…but I also wanted to try out some of my new goodies from Couture Creations so I thought I’d keep it simple but just add a few embellishments and details. See below for step by step instructions.

In these first four steps I had placed in all my photos and journaling cards for one page. I chose two detailed cards and two more plain ones and looked for quiet spaces in the photos or on the cards to put that little something extra. Then I used the Couture Creations nesting dies to cut shapes from the journaling cards themselves as I realised this was the best way to get colour matches for the palette of colours I was using. Other card would be more tricky to tone in.

In the next four steps I had some fun with stamping the die-cut shapes using Couture Creations stamps and Ranger Archival Ink in coffee. I felt the brown would tone in with the beige shades in the We R Memory Keepers journal cards. (I was using the  set of cards called Captured. ) I stamped directly on the journal card then taped the cutout over top of the stamped image. Finally I added a few more embellishments in the form of heart shaped sugardots and a wood embellishment.
