Hi, friends! It’s Jess, and I am so excited to be here with my first project on the SCT blog as a creative team member! Today I am going to share a simple trick to create a simple and stylish pocket title page for documenting everyday life in 2021. This technique can be universally applied to all divided page protectors, regardless of the size!

Supplies: Elle’s Studio: January 2021 Monthly Kit, XOXO paper stack, acetate hearts, puffy heart stickers, True Love stickers; Becky Higgins Project Life Design F page protectors; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; Font: Remington Noiseless

Recording memories in pockets has been my go-to scrapbooking method of choice for the past decade. Each year, I create a title page for my album by taking “headshots” of my family members in January or February. It’s easy! All you need is some natural light, a neutral wall in your home, and your family members to dress in a neutral coordinating colour! 

In this Design F Project Life page protector that I trimmed to 9” x 12”, I have included photos of my family members wearing something black while standing against a white wall in my bedroom. No white wall? No problem! A navy or grey wall could also do the trick—the key is to make sure there are no distracting elements in the background. 

By taking similar-sized photos of your family members in neutral colours, like black and white, you can focus on making your pocket page pop with colourful products. Here I paired my 3” x 4:” family headshots with teal journaling tags from the Elle’s Studio January monthly kit, as well as acetate hearts, puffy stickers, and wood veneer from my stash. I just love a good monochromatic colour scheme!  


Title pages don’t have to be complicated. You can take your own “headshots” in less than 10 minutes by following these simple steps. I hope this inspires you to create your own title pocket page for 2021! Thanks for looking!
