Note: We R Memory Keepers posted about scrapbooking-card notebooks today as well. Great minds think alike! 😀
I don’t do pocket scrapbooking, but I do really like those 3″ x 4” cards. I don’t know if it’s the size or the themed colors. or the words and designs on some of them, but I bought a few small sets and then wondered what to do with all of those cards I’d collected.
Since part of scrapbooking is journaling, the cards are designed to be written on, and I am constantly making notes. Sometimes it’s mundane lists, but other times I’m looking to write down an idea, record an ephany or log a bit of inspiration. After finding myself grabbing a card to use as scratch paper for a list, I thought about collecting a bunch of cards into a little notebook.
I like that some of the cards have calendar pages, while others are blank for free-form notes.
I used some solid-colored cards as section dividers.
My WRMK Cinch came in handy to bind these little notebooks. I made one with the spiral at the top and one with the spiral at the side.
For the front and back, I adhered 2 cards together for sturdiness. I also used stickers and washi tape for a bit of decoration. You could get more elaborate with the adornment for sure!
I think they are a perfect size to stick into a bag or backpack. I’ll be bringing the tropical-themed notebook (“Paradiso” by KaiserCraft) on my next cruise!
I’d love to hear what other clever things you’ve done with pocket scrapbooking cards!
