Summer Memories Week: Documenting in Pockets with Stacie Watson

If you want to get a lot of summer moments documented, a pocket page is the way to go! It holds a lot of photos and stories, and can be customized with as little or as much embellishment as you like, or have time for before you hit the pool! Today to continue Summer Memories Week, design team member Stacie Watson is sharing a new, summery pocket page that we think you’ll love! Let’s see what she created!

Hello and happy August! It’s Stacie back with you today sharing a pocket page spread using the June and July 2020 monthly kit and add-ons. I love documenting pocket page style and one of my favorite things to document are our summer days. For me there’s just something about seeing all the bright, sunny, and water-filled photos that just makes me happy! The June and July 2020 kits and add-ons are perfect to help me get my stories told!

Supplies | July 2020 Kit, June 2020 Kit, Currently Icon Journaling Tags, Summer Tape StickersSummer Chipboard Stickers, Chipboard Star Stickers, Wild at Heart Stamp, Currently Icon Stamp

The bright and cheery tags and embellishments in both the June and July 2020 Kits are perfect for documenting summer photos. When I start a pocket page I usually start with my photos and then pick out my journaling tags that best match my photos, but with these kits, they all worked so well with all of my photos that it didn’t take me any time at all to decide which ones to use!  

I knew which journaling tags I wanted to include on this spread and in order to use all of the ones I wanted, I added my journaling to one of my photos in Photoshop before printing it out. To finish off the photo I added the “big splash’ chipboard piece from the Summer Chipboard Stickers to it and the photo was ready to be put into the pocket. 

The rainbow journaling tag and speech bubble journaling tag from the July Kit were two of the main tags that I knew I wanted to include in this spread. On the rainbow tag, I created a blank canvas in Photoshop and measured the space for my journaling before printing the tag with my printer. I finished it off by stamping “hello” at the bottom using the Wild at Heart Stamp.  The speech bubble journaling tag is one of my favorites from the kit and it was just begging to be embellished with chipboard stickers from the Summer Chipboard Stickers and Chipboard Star Stickers. Of course journaling or even stamping on this card would work out great too!

For my last two journaling tags I did basically the same thing. I added my journaling to the Currently Icon Journaling Tag by creating a canvas in Photoshop and printing the card with my printer, finishing it off with some stamping using the Currently Icon Stamp. On my last journaling tag, I added the sunglasses and “summer fun” stickers from the Summer Tape Stickers. More summer memories documented! I hope this has inspired you to use your June and July 2020 Kit and add-ons to help get your summer memories recorded, too!
