Memory keeping in POCKET PAGES™ still has a special place in our hearts, and today we're sharing how mambi Design Team member Megan McKenna documented her 4th of July weekend using traditional 12x12 page protectors. Megan made DIY patriotic-patterned pocket cards by cutting papers from our 'Americana' mambiSHEETS paper pad, and summer-themed pocket cards from our new 'Seasonal' Happy Planner™ sticker value pack!
About this project, Megan writes:
"The 4th of July weekend has come and gone. Now it's time to put those memories into my 2016 album! I absolutely LOVE the 'Seasonal' Value Pack sticker book! I love that there are 'Bucket List' stickers, but for me, I don't think I would want to use those cute 'have a BBQ' stickers in my planner. I know many people that memory keep in a separate planner but I would rather have my memories in an album with full-sized photos."
"I decided to take those stickers and made my own pocket cards with them! I traced an already cut pocket card over some scrapbooking paper from the 'Americana' mambiSHEETS paper pad and made my own filler cards! This paper pack is perfect for crafting up anything 'MERICA!"

"Once I cut out a few cards, I cut out my cards from plain white card stock, where the cute 'Bucket List' stickers are going. Then I started putting it all together!"
"I came up with a plan to document the 'currently list' every month in my planner, and then transfer that info onto a pocket card to put in my album."
"Now I have five pages documenting my 4th of July weekend using entirely all mambi products! I have my own pocket cards from scrapbook paper, I used the 'Summer Bucket List' stickers DIY journaling cards, and my photos have fun stickers on them! I plan to experiment with other scrapbook papers to make more journaling cards for upcoming events! It's such a simple way to do it and me & my BIG ideas has SUCH adorable paper, so why not?!"
