Capturing the everyday (Sn@pbooking style)
Hello all! It's Sara here again to show off some of the new digital goods that have hit the digital store! I have once again embraced the pocket scrapbooking and chosen one of the new SN@P! Sets - I chose to work with the digital Everyday SN@P! Set, and I put it to use on a plain old regular week in my life.
This is my third year pocket scrapbooking. I started using paper products and my whole first year I did with physical product. My second year, I approached with a more hybrid style - taking digital products and printing them and assembling the little "mini layouts" in each pocket. This year, I have decided to try my hand at digital pocket scrapbooking. I have been scrapping traditional 12x12 size digital pages for about eight years now, and it definitely feels more natural to me. I loved playing with paper but I honestly felt a little lost.
Strangely enough, even within my comfort zone of digital scrapbooking, I have somehow already fallen way behind on my pocket album for this year. For whatever reason, I just haven't been grabbing my camera as often or even snapping quick shots with my phone. The 2 pages that I created to document week 3 of this year, I had barely any photos, despite the fact that it included a weekend getaway! Luckily, this project is about much more than the photos to me, and I have done a fairly good job keeping track of the stories. The Everyday SN@P Set worked perfectly for this - it was very colorful and with cards and sayings that were general enough to mark a regular week in the life. I haven't felt super inspired by doing pocket pages so far this year, but having such a huge selection of colors and cards got me moving in the right direction and I am pleased with how my pages turned out!
I love to document all of our moments - trivial and important and this week definitely proves that. I've got everything here from cancelling the diaper subscription (my youngest is finally done with them!) to my latest game addiction - Trivia Crack.
I didn't take many pictures of our weekend hotel stay - I didn't even bring my big camera with me - but I did snap a few with my phone and when I coupled those with the stories I wanted to tell, it filled the page right up!
I am excited to get back in the swing of pocket scrapbooking (and maybe even get caught up eventually!).
Have a great day!
