Now that you know my background, lets think about all the ways we can use this pocket scrapbooking method to quickly and uniquely record our special memories.
Documenting using this system has allowed me to venture into so many uses for digital documentation. I use the app to place my photos into the pockets and then print at home on my Canon MG3522 or send to various printers.
Here are a few books we will create as we go:
- Baby Book: Quickly insert those photos and milestones while they are happening on your app or gather those from your files and have your book ready before they graduate from high school.
- High School Reunion: I created a great “Then and Now” souvenir book for the attendees of my 45th high school reunion.
- Inventory: Take pictures and document your valuables for insurance purposes easily and quickly.
- Cookbooks: Include recipes and photos so you can share those family secrets.
- Memory Books: Quickly put an album together that honors a loved one by pulling photos of their life into one collection.
- Holiday Books: Our first project will be a book of Halloween costumes and activities. I started with my grandson’s first Halloween costume and progressed to this year. It is so much fun to see your child go from a bumble bee his first year to a vampire in middle school.
There are many, many more applications for this great venue and we will explore a new one each week. You can be professional or creative, fun loving or strictly business. There are so many sizes for your albums, too. I have 4×6, 4×4, 6×6, 6×8, 8×8, 8×10, and 12×12. Albums and protector/pocket pages are available for numerous sizes and in varying styles.
We will share ideas and detailed instructions for using your basic digital skills and physical products to document, create, and share your family activities, your information and your ideas. A new project will be presented each Saturday and comments and emails will be answered throughout the week.
