How to Make an Adorable Pocket Journal

Hello, everyone! It’s Bea back with a new project today. This time, I would like to share with you a new mini album I created using the lovely It’s All Good collection by Dear Lizzy. When I saw the gorgeous papers and the cheerful embellishments, I instantly knew I’d make a lot of fun projects with them. I adore all the flowers, fruits and shiny gold stickers. I was so excited to get playing and creating!


This time I decided to create a pocket page album. I have a lot of photos and memorabilia on my desk which don’t belong to any special events or occasions, but I wanted to document them. The pocket page album is a perfect choice to keep those lovely memories.


I started my album with creating a cover. I trimmed chipboard paper to 4.5×7” and to 1×7” and covered them with patterned paper. Then, I chose the ‘keep on being you’ sentiment from the card stock sticker sheet as the title of the album, and adhered to the front using foam tape. I also embellished the front with a paper bow, fussy cut flower and some stickers.


Next, I created the pocket pages from patterned papers. I folded eight pockets using four pieces of 12×12 papers.


Then, I folded the pages in half and hand-stitched them to the spine of the cover using my WRMK binding tool. The back of the pockets could be use as album pages, but I wanted to keep only the pockets, so I adhered the back of the pockets together.


This way I got eight little pockets to fill with photos and tiny memorabilia.


One of my favorite paper patterns from the collection is the Pink Lemonade paper and I couldn't resist to fussy cut the cute lemons. I adhered them to the back of the front cover and placed the ‘It’s all good’ stickers among them. So pretty!


To fill the pockets, I attach journaling tags and photos with paper clips. I embellished the pockets with washi tapes and thin stickers.


This album was really easy and fun to put together. I hope it gave you some new ideas to try on you next scrapbook project! Thanks for stopping by today!
