January's Final 6x8 Pocket Pages

Happy Hello!

I am sharing the last of my January pocket pages.  I am so glad I am just poking along with documenting monthly pics in a 6x8 album.  This February, we have not been picture snapping and my February pages will be few in number. :) But that will be ok, it is my intent to go with the flow this year.

Sharing the remainder of my January pages!

Happy Scrapping, ~Tisha

My 2016 Pocket Life Plans

It was last year that I really became a tad worried about the number of scrapbook albums I was accruing.  I love playing with my pretty papers and photos.  I can't stop playing but I don't want 50 scrapbooks weighing down the house! What to do?

This year I plan to do monthly pocket pages of everyday photos I have taken for the month and put in a 6x8 Snap Album. I love catching photos of this and that but not necessary feel I need to play on a 12x12 canvas with these photos. So this will be perfect, I can collect all these everyday photos and document them in the 6x8 album.

I am also being smart, I think. :p  I am going to use my large collection of Maggie Holmes papers and embellishments in these albums. (I bought two 6x8 albums for this year.)  I think this will be a brilliant way to use some of the paper and the albums will be cohesive since Maggie Holmes papers go so well together no matter what collection they are from.

My plans will not follow any project life disciplines.  I plan to use whatever photos are from the month in any order that looks good to me.  Some months may only have a handful of pages and other months may have more.  I will put the pocket pages together at the end of the month.

I really am excited about my plans! Can't wait to see how I fare with this! I have January completed and enjoyed putting the pages together. So far, I am doing great!

Some pics of January pages.



Happy Scrapping!  ~Tisha :)

December Mini Album-Part Two

I love mini albums and it was very theraputic to scrap this December album. I mainly used random page protectors cut down to fit in the 6x8 album and used my sewing machine heavily to stitch the pockets. I wanted to use all my photos from December but I had to stop at the Christmas mark as the album could not hold anymore pages no matter how creative I got. :)

So here are the last of the pages!













Thanks for stopping by!  ~Tisha 

2015 December Album-Part One

I have to say that the main reason I decided to do a mini album for December really came from the preview I stumbled across for one of the December Felicity Jane kits. I fell for the sweet papers and the gold album.  I am happy I did, this moment of fortuitousness, pushed me into my craft room for some overdue scrappiness.  


It has been awhile and I was carried away. This 6x8 album was packed and overcrowded. I had to rethink how to thin it down without losing any pages. I got creative!
The album had so much bulk at the spine where I had inserted small pocket pages, the pages would hardly turn. So I took these small pages away from the spine and stitched them to the outer edges of another page protector. This evened out the bulk of the album and I was able to have all the pages.


So, here are the pages in a two part post. Yes, I stuffed this little 6x8 album!
It is wonderful to be back in my craft room!
