Default VSBNSep17C - Birthdays

We celebrate several family members' birthdays in the fall months. My own birthday is October 10! Plus a niece, great nephew, brother, cousins, aunts and husband have fall birthdays. Whew!

Your challenge is to scrap a series of photos taken at a birthday celebration, pocket page style. Pocket pages are a great way to scrap a ton of photos quickly. Pocket page scrapping, made popular by Becky Higgins Project Life, typically feature weekly layouts about daily activities. Other pocket page projects are Ali Edwards December Daily or Week in the Life. Albums may contain only traditional layouts, only pocket pages or traditional layouts + pocket pages for variety and interest. Additionally, pocket pages come in many sizes - 12 x 12, 6 x 8, 4 x 6 and 4 x 4.

Alternate to the pocket page requirement is to scrap a traditional page using a pocket page format. Becky Higgins has a reference document that contains all the pocket page styles she offers. Check it out HERE. Choose one as the "sketch" for your layout.

Keyword: VSBNSep17C <--click for projects
Focus: BIRTHDAYS
Moo've out of your comfort zone by scrapping pocket page style or using a "sketch" based on a BH PL pocket page style.

Samples:
My first sample is a pocket page featuring the BH PL Style B pocket page protector:


MSM's Bday Cookout (left side)


My second sample is a pocket page featuring BH PL Style A pocket page protector:


MSM's Bday Cookout (right side)

Here are the completed pages as they will appear in the album:


MSM's Bday Cookout (DPS)


For pocket pages, not all pockets have to include a photo or journaling - they can include patterned paper (filler cards) only - as a resting place for the eye.


Other important information:
  • Ask any questions about this challenge in this challenge thread.
  • Upload your page to the Scrapbooking gallery.
  • Copy and paste the keywords: sbc17sep, VSBNSep17C
  • Circle back and link your project in this thread.

Talking Yay!

These photos were on my desk and I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with them. The beauty of some of the Pocket Pages I saw was it was easier to mix photos. We did several different fun things for my BIL Birthday-day so this worked perfectly! In the book, as they say


Everyday Birthday

Lots of stuff on your desk. You must have a big desk!


Nice pocket pages!
