    Hello everyone and welcome to today’s Pocket Style challenge. :)

    Over the years I’ve found this to be my favorite style for recording my family’s stories. I find it simple to use and it allows me to use lots of photos, which I love.

    So today I want you to give it a try (if you haven’t yet) and scrap a new page using a pocket style format. You can choose the size that best works for you. Either 12x12, 9x12, 8.5x11 or 6x8. I would like you to include at least four different photos, which can be in whatever size you want. Journaling cards are a big part of this style, so please include two or more journaling cards in your page. These can be 4x6, 3x4, or 4x4. And last but not least, you must include a minimum of four (4) sentences of journaling somewhere on your page. You can embellish your page with anything you want (flowers, buttons, stitches, etc.) or you can keep it simple (Photos and journaling cards only)

    Here's my page:

    Requirements for today:
    1. Your page must be in a pocket format. (Page protector: Optional)
    2. Size: 12x12, 9x12, 8.5x11 or 6x8.
    3. You must include at least four photos. (You cannot use the same photo more than once. Photos can be any size.)
    4. You must use at least 2 journaling cards. (Size: 4x6, 3x4, or 4x4)
    5. Include a minimum of four sentences of journaling anywhere on your page.
    6. Add elements such as flowers, buttons, stitches, etc. (Optional)


    General requirements: Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page should be uploaded to the TLP Gallery and not an outside hosting site. Please post your page in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. You should also post your page here in this thread, and people can comment here if they wish. Pages should contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store). All MOC pages must be posted in your main MOC page thread by 11:59 pm eastern time on February 2 in order to count!

    I don't generally do this style, but I was glad to use one of my pocket templates in my stash. I hope the square format for photos & cards work even though you didn't mention that in your description.

    @aballen Do I need to redo my page as there are no rectangles on it. Your directions gave only rectangular sizes. I can redo it if necessary. Update: after rereading, I think my jc are 4x4. So I'm good, I think?

    Can I create my own journaling cards, or do they have to be existing ones, @aballen?
