  • Mobile Memory Keeping Part 6Printing Apps 

    Get your memories off your phone and into your albums.

    If you have the Project Life app, you can print your 12x12 or 8x8 pages directly from the app.  If you made pages in Phonto, you will need to upload them to your choice of printing with Dropbox.   Several apps will pull your photos directly from Facebook, or Instagram to print for you.…

  • Color Crush Planner Mini Album

    I was so excited when Webster's Pages put out the Color Crush Planners they are so beautiful.  I ended up buying two of them, the light pink one for my day to day planner and the dark pink one to use as a mini album.

    Once I saw the beautiful inserts for memory keeping I knew it would be a fun way to document my Project 365 photos.  If you don't know what that is it's taking one photo a day for every day of the year.  This is my fourth year doing it and every year I have documented them in a different way from a complete Project Life album to a smaller custom mini album.…

  • Planning Pocket Pages

    Hello!!!  Excited to be here with my very first post!  I wanted to share with you how I am using my planner for planning out my pocket pages: keeping track of photos, memorabilia and products used.

    I am currently using the Life Documented Planner from Simple Stories.  This planner is so great because you can totally make it your own!  First you pick out your binder (6 colors to choose from, red is missing from this photo) and then pick out the accessories that will work for you.

    I am…

  • Mobile Memory Keeping Part 4│Adding Artwork & PNG's

     How to add embellishments to you photos and journal cards.

    I find that I don't use the ABM and Rhonna apps very often right now since I like to use a lot of my own artwork PNGs from Dropbox.  But those are great options for anyone looking to add some pretty stuff to their photos or journal cards. It is also an easy way…

  • Tell Your Story

    I enjoy a good book every now and then.  When I was younger, I was an avid reader who enjoyed both fiction and nonfiction.  My favorite read, however, was a good historical fiction novel. 

    Reading a story about how life used to be is something that fueled my passion for story telling as a teenager.  Not only did I write my own short stories and attempted at a novel or two, but I also kept a journal.  Now as the years have gone by, my journals tell me what life used to be like in my own world.  Its a beautiful glimpse into my past, sparking memories all along the way.

    As a memory keeper, I firmly believe that it is important to tell YOUR story with photographs and with words.

    This year, I set myself one New Year's resolution. I want to journal more. I…

  • Spotlight on Storytelling

    Do your pocket pages consist mostly of photos with the occasional "who-what-when-where-why" captions and some pretty embellishments? Or are your pages telling rich, detailed stories that you and your family will treasure in the future?

  • Week 6 Using Clique Kits Kit Happy Everything

    Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to write my very first post for The Pocket Source.  Before I begin, I just wanted to let you all know a little about me and my scrapbooking style.  I'm a traditional scrapbooker by trade...meaning that's how I started this whole thing to begin with.  I began about 11 years ago with the birth of my first son.  Fast forward to Pocket Pages and Project Life.  When Project Life came to be, I thought,  "Hey that's cheating!!"  It was just too easy to stick pictures into pockets and be done.  If you didn't slave over a page it's not right, right?  At least that's what I thought.  Then, I became extremely burnt out on scrapbooking in general and quit for about two years.  Papers and supplies were left to collect dust and I felt inadequate, and I felt guilt.  I don't even know how I even decided to start Project Life.  I was in such as haze, but I did.  It's been amazing.  I…

  • My favorite app for editing right now is Instagram.  The ability to sharpen photos in their app is amazing.  To save photos without posting them, you need to be offline or, I just snap a screen shot after editing and then crop my screen shot. On almost every photo I take with my phone, I increase the contrast and sharpness.  Sometimes increasing brightness and decreasing shadows. Some photos…

  • We, as scrapbookers, set out to memory keep.  We want to record and preserve the memories that we make. Its fun to grab photos on all of life's big moments like that first day of school, high school graduation, or the day we got married... But what about all those little moments in between? What about the every day? 

    One of my main memory keeping goals in my pocket page scrapbooks is to document our daily life. Of course I make certain to grab a photo or two at all the big moments, like when we bought our first house or when we adopted our dog.  Those memories are already tucked inside some shiny page protectors with vibrant, happy embellishments surrounding those special photos.  

    But then I sit back and think, what about documenting our life as it really is?  Recording it right down to the nitty gritty. The good, the bad, and the ugly.   After all life isn't perfect. It's messy, it's aggravating, and its chaotic. That's REAL…

  • Grammar and Handwriting Go Hand-in-Hand

    Did you know that today is National Grammar Day?

    When you think of proper grammar, what else comes to mind? For me, it's a teacher in a floral dress. Standing in front of a chalky blackboard, she scrolls flawless handwriting while explaining the appropriate use of commas and how to make that perfect loop in the letter y.

  • Let's make a list

    Good morning and happy Wednesday! It sure feels good to have new blog posts rolling in each day! I hope we can keep up the momentum! Do you have something you would like to share? Maybe just your thoughts on trends? Do you have a list of blogs that you follow regularly? I'd love for you to share your ideas with our growing membership! 

    Today, I was surfing the Studio Calico forums and found a post in the project life discussion board about story prompts or ideas to use when you don't have something to document for a specific day or week. If you are doing weekly, I'm sure you run into days where there just isn't anything scrapbook worthy... so... what do you do? 

    Some members at Studio Calico decided to make a list of ideas! If you are a member at Studio…
