A Pocket full of Memories blog hop...


Thanks for visiting and hopping along the pocket full of memories blog hop... Be sure to start at the beginning and leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win an amazing prize by several different sponsors.

I have been working on a mini album for a couple weeks.  It has been a long time since I created one and I have to say I really missed it.. I use to teach a mini album very close to this using envelopes and cards several years ago and a friend of mine directed me to Kathy Orta's YouTube channel saying her album reminded her of mine years ago... Pretty close but I love her Library pocket page better.  I also loved how she bound the album as years ago all we really had was rings, ribbon and eyelets... but who would of thought of duck tape...  I chose to do mine with tyvek and ink it as I wanted an older look to my binding.  I love the whole idea of tyvek and glad that Kathy Orta pointed me in it's direction...  If you like this album Kathy Orta has really broke the steps down and shared this mini album in a series of 4 videos. Awesome videos...

Here is my album titled Dream... I still need to fill it with photos, journaling and more tags...

YOUR album is so beautiful and classic. i like the style very, very much. Lots of room for journaling and collecting memories. I like the paper -- it is warming, calming and calls me to reflect.
