Traditional + Pocket = Success!

Are you a die-hard traditional scrapbooker? Or do you stick tight to fast and easy pocket pages? Try combining both styles for a fun and stylish way to record your memories!

I'm a traditional girl first, so I started with this two-page layout based on a sketch:

The simple shapes and Cricut title makes this layout easy to replicate. I rounded all the corners to mimic the look of pocket page scrapbooking so I could combine the two styles and they look like they were meant to be together (because they were!).

I had several more pictures to include, so a pocket page slipped in the middle of a traditional layout is a great way to fit them all in. Here's one side:

See? Still looks like a great layout, and the pages flow together wonderfully! Now, check out the other side:

Simply using the same products and creating a similar style makes everything work. I think almost any layout design would work, you just need to carry similar elements across both page styles.  The rounded corners, similar photo sizes, and repeated elements tie it all together.

Interested in any of the products I used? Here's a list:

Hopscotch Paper Pack (avail. thru 3/31)
