Hello to all of the pocket page fans out there…this month I wanted to share an idea for how to fill a pocket or two when you may not have enough content. It seems like a 'cheat' at first, but I actually love the cool factor that it adds!
"And as I've said before…simple is key to pocket pages."
If you use a cell phone at all, I have no doubt that you check the weather, listen to your favorite tunes, check Facebook, etc. These are all tidbits of your daily routine that are EASY to add to your projects! In the image you can see the photo I printed of my lock screen (Pharrell Williams' song 'Happy' was on repeat that whole week, lol), as well as the weather report for an unusually cold 'spring' day. The cool thing about both of these captures is that they record the date + current happening all at the same time.
I use an iPhone, so in order to capture an image on it I just do a 'screenshot' by pressing the round 'home' button and the on/off button on the top of my phone at the same time. You will hear the camera shutter sound and it automatically saves your image to your camera roll. From there, I just email it to myself and print from home. I know that with other cell phones you can do the same thing…just check your manual.
As simple as it sounds, it's a fun way to capture that playlist/weather report/status update while filling a pocket or two at the same time.
And as I've said before…simple is key to pocket pages. :)
