Today's featured project is a wonderful 4H album by our staff member Diana. Diana takes LOTS of pictures, so she finds that pocket pages are her go-to solution for scrapbooking all of her photos quickly! Take a look at just a few pages from this amazing 12x12 album which documents her granddaughter Hannah's 4H activities!

The album begins with a full 12x12 cover page featuring adorable photos of Hannah and her calf:

Diana used a variety of page styles, including some full pages and several configurations of pocket pages. I love how she utilized the pocket page with the large pocket. It can be used for a 5x7 photo or a matted 4x6 photo, as Diana did here:

Here, Diana used the large pocket for Hannah's competition number. Great idea! And on the right-hand page, she used three additional pockets for journaling or memorabilia. 

As you can see, Diana's album is packed FULL of photos! Pocket pages enable you to fit TONS of photos in an album of this size!

Diana often reserved one pocket for journaling to describe the photos on the page.

I love how she incorporated embellishments and patterned paper across the center of the pages to visually break up the "grid" design of the pocket pages! 

As you can see, Diana takes pictures of so many details! Her album truly captures the spirit of each day at the county fair.
 Diana also used some full 12x12 pockets for memorabilia.Great idea!

Diana has several full pages included in her album, along with the pocket pages. Scrapbooking a traditional "full" page is a fun way to highlight favorite photos or create an "introductory" page for a section in your album

 As you can see, pocket pages are your GO-TO solution to get a LOT of photos scrapbooked quickly! Thanks to Diana for sharing her great project. Her family will treasure the memories captured in this album for years to come!
