iNSD2022 Blog train and freebie

It is international scrapbooking day 2022 and I wanted to do something extra for you all.
I recently joined a FB group for independent designers and they set up a blog train for NSD2022. We called it the iNSD2022.
Sadly I didn’t had the time to collaborate for the current blog train, but I didn’t want it to pass without promoting my new designerfriends! And next blogtrain I will be also participating!

So if you like freebies go to http://thepracticalscrapper1.blogspot.com/2022/05/insd-2022-indie-designers-blog-hop.html were you found all the links to the designers and start to hop.

I did the hop and make this page with all the goodies:

PPS017 page made by Hilde using elements and paper from the blogtrain.

The template used is my own PPS017 template.
And because I love presents I give you the template till 28/05/2022 for FREE!
A very good reason to try it out.

On the page you see my little cute doggie. Isn’t she gorgeous in the field full of daisies? I immediatly know I would use these photos with the current blogtrain.

Pocket pages with a twist

pocket pages whith a twist - digital pocket page template, project life

What is it?

Are you wondering what pocket pages are? Well I try to explain it (briefly).

In 2008 project life from Becky Higgins was born. The use of plastic sheet protectors divided in different pockets took scrapbooking to a whole new level: No need for glue anymore, just inserting the photos and pocket cards in the desired pocket.

Soon the style was adopted by the digital scrapbookers and designers of digital products included pocket cards and templates in their kits.
A pocketpage template typically is an arrangement of blocks in a few different standard sizes on a page. Each block then can be filled with photos or patterned paper.
Contrary to the physical pocket pages, in digital scrapbooking with pocket pages you are not limited to the blocks. You can put embellishments anywhere on the page. There is no right or wrong way to use the templates

Digital Pocket Pages with a twist

Almost all the time the shapes in the digital templates are rectangular. Nothing wrong with that, but if you know me a little, you know I love curves. I started searching templates with curves and I didn’t find them.
So I decided to made them myself,. And so my new type of templates were born: pocket pages with a twist 🙂

The first templates will be a mix and match serie: I made different variations with a few standard shapes.
If you know well how to deal with rotating and duplicating layers you can stick to a few templates with the standard shapes. If you are not you have also the option to buy a set where I did the work for you.


I hope you like these new style of pocket pages.
Leave a comment if so, so I know it is worth to make more of these templates.
