{Jan 27th-Feb 2nd part two}

I really LOVE that pie chart card that came in my Studio Calico kit! It was fun to segment it out :) The banners I got were also really cute and I'm glad they gave me so many so I can use them for a while! I also had to scoop up those geotag wood veneers, a new favorite of mine now!!

{Jan 27th-Feb 2nd part one}

Another week down!! I had the clear pocket done from last week so that was pretty easy. I love doing transparent pockets!! Then that cute gold crown came with my Studio Calico card kit! LOVE IT! I also had some PinkFresh left over to use, I just love those little houses and the instaframes are amazing!!. This one came together pretty easy for me and I love how it turned out.

{Jan 20th-26th part one!}

Here is my very first review for The Pocket Source! It feels amazing to be apart of such a talented team of ladies. The products we get to try are just wonderful and I can't wait to share them with you on Saturdays! I hope I can show you some new products you will love! I linked up each product to the Pink Fresh shop so you can find them easy! I know I have found some new favorites! 


I love the colorful products that PinkFresh has. I knew it was going to be good when they sent their products in a neon pink bubble mailer! They have a wide range of colors for any type of pocket scrapbooker. The neons were just delicious, but they also have beautiful pastels with a more subdued color scheme. Overall I love what PinkFresh has to offer! I know I just found a new favorite :) 

  I loved that the wood veneer pieces were colored on both sides! This made making a see-through pocket very easy. You will get to see that coming up soon! 

 The picture frames are a sturdy glossy material and I loved working with them.

The cards they have are on a heavy weight card stock with a beautiful embossed detail in the lettering or picture. I didn't need to add much to them because they were just so perfect on their own. 

 The Drop Stickers add just the right amount of dimension, which I love! They include so many pieces with their products. I had plenty leftover that I could use for weeks to come, especially with the Fresh Drops, these have a beautiful glossy finish. I loved that the pack came with several different styles in one package!

 The washi tape is just exquisite! The patterns were so beautiful and I found my self grabbing for them over and over.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found a new product to try for yourself! If you have any questions about the PinkFresh products leave them in the comments below. 

Happy Crafting!

{The Pocket Source Blog Hop}

We at The Pocket Source are so excited to share with you today why we love pocket scrapbooking! Welcome to The Pocket Source's blog hop. You should have arrived from Monica's blog, now you can continue this hop by visiting Cathy's blog

This is my very first blog hop and very first design team! I'm so excited for everything I will learn from this amazing team at The Pocket Source. I just love the idea of having a community all about pocket scrapbooking! All of that inspiration in one place, I can feel myself getting hooked already! I'm most excited about the friends I know I will make in this amazing community. I know you guys will understand when I get overly excited about getting a new kit in the mail or trying a new set of beautiful cards for the first time ;) Take a look at my style and I can't wait to see what you post in the Pocket Source gallery!




I think the most important lesson I have learned in my pocket scrapbooking journey is to NOT pressure yourself! I started 2014 with a goal to stay caught up, but alas I have already fallen way behind! So I'm going to go with it :) No pressure here! Just lots of creativity and fun. 

Thanks for stopping by! I hope I can inspire you as much as you guys inspire me! Now head over to Cathy's blog HERE! She has some amazing things to share with you.

{Summer 2013 mini}

Do you ever start a project and never finish it? We never do that right?? ;) Well, I was cleaning out my hall closet and found a half done mini album from last year's summer vacation! All the pictures are in it and about 1/3 of it is actually finished! It looks so good so far, I couldn't leave it that way. The memories are still kind of fresh in my head and I want to get them down before they're gone. The whole reason we do these albums is for our future family to look back on. How would it look if we opened this album only to have 1/3 of our vacation documented. Before I will allow myself to start our Disney vacation album, this one MUST get finished. I'll share some of what is done so far and hopefully be able to share the rest soon! It's out on my desk starring at me so I have no more excuses to put it off. 

The front cover is still undone, but I like to finish that last so it matches everything I've done inside and I use scraps on it :) I used a Simple Stories album with a green spine and a Kraft finish. I chose it specifically for the brown and green look; I thought it went well with our trip. 

And now that this is blogged I really can't leave it unfinished!! You guys keep me accountable and bug me to see the rest ;)

{Becky Higgins Calender for my Filofax}

I saw this calender a few weeks ago and wanted to get it but didn't know where I would use it! Then, I got my A5! I knew I wanted new dividers and a cute calender so I went back to Michaels and bought it! It turned out so cute! I had to cut it down a little to make it fit, but it works! 

This calender was VERY well done! It has lots of cute pages and lists, no space was wasted! 

As you can see they are a little bigger than the normal Filofax divider. I just used the Filofax one as a guide to cut down the Becky Higgins. 

Now, I don't have a fancy hole punch so I had to do then by hand. This will go MUCH faster if you already have a nice one.   

Look how cute each month is! 



In between each month are cute lists made specifically for that month ! I LOVE it! 

And here are the weeks. There is one week on each page. It will be different to use, but I really love the way they are laid out! Plus it is a very heavy card stock so I can use any pen I want to :)

Our Filofax's are ever changing, but I think this setup might stick around for a while for me :) What do you like best about these calender inserts, I would love to hear from you! Happy Filofaxing!
