Record monthly Day in the Life with pocket scrapbooking - The Nerd Nest

On the 4th of each month in 2015, I’m documenting a Day in the Life, a concept originated by Ali Edwards. Each month, I’m adding a full spread for Day in the Life in between weekly spreads into my pocket scrapbooking album.

Here’s April Day in the Life:

I didn’t have many pockets left for journaling, so I knew I’d need to go typed. I grabbed the cards from the Ready Set Go Value Kit that matched the dominant colors from the photos along the outer edge. I knew that only the edge would show up under my typed journaling blocks, so the rest of the card design didn’t matter.

One of the photos I included was Eliza and Jake filling Easter eggs with Legos, so I made that one a flip pocket so the surprise won’t be ruined by any little eyes scanning through the album.

Set your alarms next Monday if you are playing along! Or, if you’d rather, Ali Edwards is doing it May 12.
