Woohoo, it's the weekend!! =) I'm getting ready to spend my day at the ball field - Alex & Ben both have their first Little League games of the season this afternoon. But first, I wanted to share an easy way to get your memorabilia into your scrapbooks.
I've had this stack of cards on my desk since Alex turned 9 a couple weeks ago. I was going to throw them into the drawer with his other keepsakes when I had an idea for a quick pocket page.
I started with a base of 12x12 cardstock. I attached the card that I'd made for his birthday to the center of an 8.5x11in transparency, and then added a Sassafras banner sticker and some stars punched with my medium and large Fiskars twinkle twinkle punches. I added a few gems and a strip of patterned paper and then stitched the transparency to the cardstock. I love that all of the cards are contained, but that you're still able to get a peek at them without taking them all out of the pocket. This would also work well for other memorabilia - I know that I have a lot of brochures and the like from trips that are too big to incorporate into a layout, but that I'd like to have on display.
