Baby Pocket memory album by Lori

Baby Pocket memory album 
By Lori McClellan 
featuring Graphic 45 Little Darlings
Graphic 45 has a fantastic vintage baby line that was perfect for this memory box and album.  This is perfect for any new mom that wants to document every special memory and record all your special feelings too!  

1.  Gather your supplies....  Paper, sewing machine, adhesive, graphic 45 sticker embellishments, O ring, ribbon, hole punch, and petaloo flowers.
2. Cut your paper to  4.5 X 12 inches.  You will need 2 papers this size for each page, so cut 2 papers for each page you want in your album.  5 pages = 10  4.5 x 12 sheets.
3. Score each page at 1 and 4.5 inches.  Fold it up and the 1  inch down to create the pocket.
4.  Put 2 of these folded pages back to back and sew around it, leaving the top open.  You are creating a pocket on each page and a pocket in between the two pages.
5.  When you have all of your pages sewn together, line them up and punch a hole in the top left side.  Hold them all together with an O ring.
6.  Using a circle punch, punch 1/2 a circle in the top to pull the journaling tag in and out from in between the pages.  Add some ribbon.
7.  Embellish to your hearts content!  I added a small scrap on the pocket, with some of the amazing Graphic 45 stickers.  You can add pictures, journaling and special memories.

To learn more about the awesome memory box this album fits into go to this post to learn how it was done.

Thanks for coming by!!  I hope you run out and make your own inspired pocket memory album!!
