About Leslie Prinkki
Leslie first came across Kiwi Lane Designs while searching online for scrapbooking ideas in 2011 and then fell in love with our layouts. A year later, she came across them again at a scrapbooking expo. She was intrigued by the pages we designed with the templates as she chatted with Susan and Debbie about how excited she was to learn about the product. The very first templates she bought were Celebrate, Accents, Abbie Road, Cascade Trails, Rings, and Shapes. She has been part of the Kiwi family and has used the designer templates in her layouts ever since.
She recently created a beautiful birthday pocket scrapbook and we wanted to share it with you!
Pocket Scrapbooking makes memory keeping simple, as does the play-to-create system in general. But pocket scrapbooking is unique in the sense that it allows you to easily slip photos, journaling cards, and embellishments in different pockets creating a unique and focused page.
Kiwi Lane loves pocket scrapbooking, so we provide pocket paper kits dedicated to this branch of scrapbooking as well as our wide range of Tiny Accessories and Tiny Borders perfect for pocket scrapbooking. You can find pocket page holders at Tuesday Morning, Hobby Lobby, or even Doodle Bug.
Here are some ways to get inspired, or if you’re new, to get started.

Leslies Birthday Pocket Design
For Leselies pocket scrapbook she decided to use photos from her daughters 19th birthday. You can find the printable she used down below.
She used some of the sentiments on the printable to create cute pocket sayings as well as some spots for journaling. Don’t be afraid to add embellishments to your pictures either! Leslie made the point that one of her pictures had a lot of white space so she went ahead and added some design elements in the form of Cheerful 3A and Tiny Highlights 8T.
Another fun element was the confetti pocket. Leslie just slid some pom poms, glitter, and sequins, to create some sparkle and dimension in her pocket layout. She then used a fuse tool to seal the pocket shut and ta-da! You have an adorable and festive confetti pocket.
Speaking of sealing pockets, if you want to make sure your photos and cards don’t slip out, you can use perforated clear seals to keep them shut.
Another fun thing about pocket scrapbooking is that it always has a backside! It’s always an adventure to turn the finished page over and realize that there’s still some more designing to explore.
