Pocket Album

When shopping at the Red Rubber Designs store, I came across an item that I thought would be the base for a quick and easy album. The item is called Pockets and Pieces.  It consists of 5 sheets of heavyweight cardstock punch outs. Each sheet contains 1 each of the pockets that you see below as well as a ton of different shaped tabs.

These pockets can easily be inked, stamped on, embossed, covered with paper or any other way you would like to finish them.

For my album, I chose to ink the outside and line the inside with patterned paper from the Sands of Time Patterned Cardstock Collection.

The smaller pockets I also inked and added to the back of the larger pockets. The large tags will fit inside of the larger pockets.

I made the cover out of chipboard covered with more of the Sands of Time paper and bound the album with 3/4" Cinch Binding Wire in silver.

Here are a few of the things that I will put in my album. The small shells and sand dollars were made with the Mini Shells Rubber Stamp Set.  The tags are included in the Sands of Time Patterned Cardstock Collection as well as the letter stickers.  The photo stamps I made in PSE with my personal travel photos.

If you hurry, you can snag a set of the Pockets and Pieces while they are still on sale at Red Rubber Designs.

This pockets and pieces is a much overlooked treasure chest. (I just created something myself with it -- I really think we are channeling each other's creativity somehow:) You really made the most of the P&P -- what a great album!
