  • What's New with our Sponsors

    I thought I would share the latest news from our The Pocket Source sponsors with you today.
    Mye De Leon opened her guest shop at Snap Click Supply Co. this weekend. Her latest I Collect Memories pocket scrapping collection called Fleeting is on sale this weekend. If you are a newsletter subscriber, you should check it for extra savings.

  • Sweet Shoppe Designs Gift AND a Contest!

    I'm back today to shine the spotlight on Sweet Shoppe Designs just a little bit more.
    As we talked about last Saturday in our Saturday Review, if you are looking to add to your digi stash, definitely start in the Pocket Scrapbooking section of the store but don't be afraid to look elsewhere, too. I think just about everything can be used in the pocket scrapping format if you love it! Quite often, there will be free journal cards with purchase of the coordinating kit over the new release day (which is about 6:00 pm EST on Friday nights to midnight EST on Saturday night, so about 30 hours).
    If you've had your eye on some products for a while, you should head over to…

  • Saturday Review: Sweet Shoppe Designs

    The digital team here at The Pocket Source is excited to review Sweet Shoppe Designs again this week. I think it is a favorite with all of us! So many different products available to help us tell our family's stories. It being September, there are plenty of "back to school" kits and pocket scrapping items on the virtual shelves there, right now.

    Krista has outdone herself this month with five layouts for us:

  • What's New with our Sponsors

    With the kids going back to school, it seems like all of us are so busy. I thought I might start sharing the latest news from our sponsors just in case you missed seeing it during the week. If you are out in "digi land" shopping for scrapbooking supplies this weekend, you might want to visit their stores for some new pretties.
    First, MAMBI (Me and My Big Ideas) is having a design team call. 
    You can find all the details on their blog post here. The call ends on 9/21/14.
    Just in case you are on the fence in applying, wondering what being on a design or creative team is all about, you might want to…

  • Hello freinds. I hope you all are having a great Saturday afternoon and a perfect weekend. First I wanted to announce some changes that are going to take place. You may have noticed that not much has been going on on the blog over the past couple of weeks. We are implementing a few new pieces to TPS and that has taken some time. We are hoping to roll out some eye catching material in the next couple weeks leading up to our "get ready for December" round up in November. More on that soon!

    Unfortunately this will be my last Saturday Review for a while. I am officially stepping down as Design Team Coordinator and handing over the ropes to a very scrappy lady, Stacia Hall. She and the rest of the design team plan to continue to bring you fresh inspiration on the latest products week after week. The Saturday Reviews themselves will be posted every other Saturday. This new schedule will allow the team members to pop in more frequently with fun things like challenges, behind the…

    Moving On...

    Let's talk embellishments! Who doesn't love to embellish their layouts? I know when it comes to scrapbooking I could never own too many embellishments. Washi tape, paper clips, wood veneers...give me give me. With all of the options out there it's so refreshing to see new and current products especially on a monthly basis. And what better way to treat yourself to the latest and greatest embellishments is to connect with a company that offers them as a monthly kit. Yep, that's right folks,Freckled Fawn is known for delivering one of kind embellishments right to your front…

    The Winner is...

    Congratulations to Theresa Eckelberry for winning the credit to my online shop. Theresa I have emailed you the coupon code! Have fun shopping!

    Moving On...

    Happy Saturday friends. How is the weather where you are? It is a rainy day here. The older I get the more I appreciate rainy days. It tends to slow us down, cool us off, and make us relax. And gives me reason to hoard up in my happy place and do some crafting and scrapping. So that's what I'm doing today. I'm on my second cup of coffee, I've made homemade sourdough french toast for the family, and hired my four year old to clean the house. It's a deary day out but a happy day in. And it's about to get even better. Today I'm sharing with you one of my personal favorites (yes, I know I like them all ;)), but today's review and goodies come from a company and owner that has backed TPS from the very beginning and one that TPS is very fond of,…

  • Tuesday Challenge: Watercolors

    Hi everyone!  Here I am to brighten up your Tuesday with a little challenge!  This challenge goes all week, but try to submit your take on it by Sunday at noon so I can add the winner to next week's challenge post!  To submit, just go ahead and upload your project to the The Pocket Source gallery and link to it in the comments of this blog post so we can all see.  And the number one most important rule is to have fun ;)

    This week's challenge is a "Product Challenge" which means I am challenging you to use a certain product on your layout this week.  In this case, the product is watercolors!  Use any type of watercolor, from the little plastic palette you used in grade school to watercolor pencils to specialty items like NeoColors.  Whatever you have on hand!  Watercolor has become such a big trend in scrapbooking lately and I have to say, I absolutely love it!  Such an easy way to add a big impact to your work.  Our wonderful…

  • THE WINNER IS

    First things first, the winner of $20 dollars from Just Jamiee is Treasa Cimorose. Congratulations! Please email me as soon as you can to confirm you email address.

    STEPHANIE ADAMS' DESIGNS

    Today's review is a tad bit different because it's my brand, Stephanie Adams' Designs. And to keep things fair I'm simply letting the TPS gals do most of the talking. But first let me tell you a little about my digital collections. My digital kits are super colorful and super fun. As a hybrid scrapper I know the importance of having everything set up…

  • Saturday Review: Just Jaimee

    Happy one day after July 4th! I hope you guys had a fun and relaxing holiday with your family and friends. I can't believe it's July already. It's scary to think Christmas will be here in a flash. AHHH!!!

    Today's review is probably the most colorful we have ever had on a Saturday. All of the goodies you will see today come from a very talented designer, Jaimee, or better known as Just Jaimee. Let's see what the TPS team has in store for you.

    MEET JAIMEE

    My real name is Jaimee Kaiser. I’m a mom of 3 girls (Sydney 15, Alexandra 10 and Zoe 4). I have been married for almost 13 years. Together we live in a cozy little nook in the black forest of Germany. We are surrounded by nature…

    Today's challenge is a sketch and I am definitely going to give this one a try!  Use the sketch to make a card (or two!).  Follow it exactly or interpret it into your own idea.  One is vertical and one horizontal but they can work for either 3x4, 4x6, or, if you are really creative, a 4x4!  Bonus points if you incorporate it into a layout! …
