Hooked on Pocket Pages – My Project January Pocket Scrappin – On Sale And More

My goal last year was to really get caught up with my scrapbooks. Well it didn’t happen and I was very bummed and questioning every page I was doing. Don’t get me wrong I still enjoy doing my pages but it seems I am never going to get caught up if I didn’t change some of my habits. I have been researching pocket scrapbooking for many months now. I resisted until I looked back and what little I got done in 2013. So I guess you could say my goal this year to is get this whole year or the important parts of life scrapped and in a book. I even went as far as ordering a Silhouette before the end of the year so I could play with my designs and hybrid pages when I wanted and  the first week I purchased two Project Life albums and inserts for the big one. I am going to do hybrid on some and some will be all digital pages depending on my schedule and time. My goal is to never be more than 3 weeks behind, as i think in a few hours or less I could easily get caught up. I will see try and get caught up with last year with this system and regular pages depending on my mood. You are going to find this only at my Pickleberry Pop shop. This will be on sale for a limited amount of time – so grab while it is on sale!

And with that I have designed My Project January Pocket Scrapping Products. There is a kit and then the set of journaling pieces that will easily fill your Pocket pages.

lauraburger_MyProjJan_kit_preview

This months kit – includes a set of number tags from 1 to 31 – so if you are doing daily or weekly layouts. I have done months and days of the week with the brown that will be used one way of another through the entire years projects. Also the pocket pieces are saved in pgn format and pdf for ease in printing if you are printing some of your out.

lauraburger_MyProjJan_pocket_preview

I will add to this project each month with new colors – the brown will be throughout each product to keep some stability in my book. If your looking for a way to get caught I recommend pocket pages. It is fast and easy to organize, if you are all digital still very easy to layout that have that blocked look to them but still have their own personalities. So far I am loving this.

Take a look at the layout the Creative Team has done with there pocket pages.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?

No.  I used to have nice handwriting but then when I went into the nursing field I was writing so much that it became sloppy!

Now with electronic charting it’s all legible again!  :)
4. ARE YOU MARRIED AND IF SO HOW LONG?

Married (to the same man) for 44 years now.  It’ll be 45 in June!

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? AND IF YOU TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT THEM

We have two sons that are a little over two years apart.  We have 5 grandkids
Our oldest son is so much like my Dad in personality and looks, and a lot like my hubby too.  He’s definitely has the older child syndrome.  More serious with lots of self responsibility.  The kind of guy who would give you the shirt off his back and do anything for you.
Youngest son is our free spirit and is fun loving.  He’s got the gift of gab and will always land on his feet.  He’s definitely fits the stereotype of the second child.  I was a  second child also and always told him that I knew how he thought, so he couldn’t get much past me!  Both of us Taurus, born in May.
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?

Sure!  I’m a great person!  :)

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?

Not a lot but probably more than I should!

8. WHEN DID YOU START TO SCRAPBOOK AND WHY?

I’ve always been interested in crafts and being creative.  I started paper scrapping first and changed to digital around 2010.  Scrap booking is just a very relaxing hobby to me.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?

Maybe in my younger years but not now.  Old age is catching up you know!

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?

Multigrain Cheerios.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?

No way!

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?

27. BEST VACATION YOU HAVE BEEN ON AND WHY?

I would have to say a dive trip to the Cayman Islands staying on the live aboard dive ship, Aggressor.  So peaceful and relaxing.  It was so breath taking seeing the sheer drop off of the wall with all the coral and fish.  Our first trip there we dove with “Sweet Lips” the humungus grouper.  He’s not around anymore unfortunately.  He loved the divers and many a picture was taken with him.

28. WHAT WAS THE LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED

Heat.  What a fun movie!

29. DO YOU ENJOY READING AND WHAT HAVE YOU READ RECENTLY?

I love to read and most every night we read in bed before turning out the light.  I love the used book store at the flea market in town where books are $1 and you can return and get 50 cents off the next book.  Reading right now King of Torts by John Grisham.  Love anything fiction from romance to mystery.
