{One Fine October Afternoon}

Unless you are brand new to the scrapbooking world, I'm sure you've heard of "Pocket Scrapbooking". Sometimes known as "Project Life", "Project 365", "Capture 365" and the list goes on and on. It's a trend that has been around for a while, but has really become popular the past year. The idea behind it is capturing your life in photos, and then slipping the photos in divided page protectors along with fun embellishments and/or journaling cards. So what if you want to try this new idea of scrapbooking, but don't want to commit 100%?  How about making a Pocket Scrapbooking style layout, using regular scrapbooking supplies on a 12x12 layout?

I  started with two 4x6 photos just like I would slip into the pocket pages and then added three 3.5x2.5 photos along with some pieces of patterned paper and cute embellishments from the Paper Bakery's August scrapbooking kit. The October Afternoon die cut shapes and custom flair button are perfect to use as embellishments!
I even used the packaging from the die cut shapes as part of my title and as a background piece.
The cool thing about this layout is that I used five, YES FIVE photos!! It's been forever since I've used that many photos on a layout. 
 
As always, thanks for stopping by today!

Cool idea!

Your page looks great. I like that you put some embellishments over multiple areas. I tried this myself recently to see how I liked the 'pocket' idea without the pockets.

Great way to fit lots of photos on a page! I love the section with lots of sequins. I don't think I'll ever do PL but I do use the divided page protectors when I have too many photos from one event to scrapbook! x

This is a brilliant idea. I'm so going to have to give this a shot. Your layout is so fun and I love you got so many photos on a page without it looking crowded.
