This is a different kind of Pocket Scrapbooking. The mini Hip Pics kraft chipboard album from CTMH has eight white pocket pages which holds 16 - 6 x 4 pictures viewed in 3 3/4" square windows. The album is approximately 6 1/2" x 5 1/4" and is spiral bound to lie flat.
The album is very easy to fill. It lends itself to simply sliding photos into the pockets and making a few notes. Or one can dress it up as much as she/he wants. Click on the photos to see more detail.
Because of the small size, it is a great way to use lots of scraps of cardstock or patterned paper and stray embellishments and die cuts.
Since I don't like to put away my leftovers from other projects this was a good excuse to use them up rather than have to tidy up!
Most of the papers are from the Chalk It Up paper pack. Some of the thick chipboard shapes are from the same collection's Complements pack. Many of the die cuts are from the CTMH Cricut Artbooking Collection.
Some of the words are segments cut from the larger rolls in each of CTMH's washi 3-roll tape packs: Carnival and Boardwalk . These are being retired and are "while supplies last".
I mounted most of the pictures on scrap pieces of cardstock cut at 4 1/4" wide so they wouldn't slide around in the pocket.
The picture above, on the right-hand side, was mounted on a piece of patterned paper on the outside of the pocket.
Both of the pictures above were adhered directly on the pocket pages. This makes it even easier to scrapbook because the pictures tell the story.
Even though there are no pockets on the inside covers, I used those surfaces, too.

This is the blank cover left unadorned just to show what the album looks like prior to putting one's own personal touches to it. I'd love to see how you decorate your album!
Thank you for visiting today!
