CHA Favorites | Divided Pocket Scrapbooking

I was looking at all the photos I took at CHA, and realized that if I didn’t combine some of the different vendors into posts based on similarities, then I could spend two weeks blogging daily about CHA. So I decided to combine all the different divided pocket scrapbooking companies that I visited.

The most well-known to me of the divided pocket scrapbooking line is Becky Higgins Project Life. She has now partnered with American Crafts to bring Project Life to retail stores.

The booth was hopping every time I walked by!
My friend Liz Tamanaha, who designed the Midnight Edition of Project Life coming out in May, is the one standing on the right with the red purse.

Here’s a closer look at the Midnight Edition.  So classic and elegant!

The Kraft Edition.

New to the Project Life line are the mini albums, and also the mini kits.


There’s also a wall of accessories, such as page dividers, pens, and cardstock. 

I ran into my Write.Click.Scrapbook. teammate Jenny Larson at the Project Life booth! Donna Jannuzzi was with her. She used to be on the WCS team too, and lives locally to me. I’ve met her several times at local crops. The three of us got a photo with Becky Higgins.

Next, I stopped at the We R Memory Keepers booth and saw their new pocket scrapbooking line called “Albums Made Easy”. There were four new lines with coordinating journal cards, cardstock, and albums that debuted at CHA: Memo, Webster, Bloom, and Tangerine.
Each kit contains 275 journal cards. You can also purchase a package of coordinating cardstock that contains 60 double-sided cardstock cards containing both 4x6 and 3x4 cardstock. These new lines look very cute and versatile.

There are many different page protector configurations available in many sizes. I found some that are 8.5x11.

Other sizes that fit into the same albums.

And of course the 12x12 choices were numerous

Also in the page protector scrapbooking market is Simple Stories

Their Sn@p line of products are bright, colorful, and so cute and contemporary.

A closer look at the stamps.

They had a wall in their booth, showing the different ways you can configure their journal cards and your photos in page protectors.


More sample projects in the Simple Stories booth.

Another company coming out with page protector pocket scrapbooking lines is Echo Park’s Photo Freedom line. I didn’t get a chance to visit their booth because I was running out of time. They have really cute new Photo Freedom lines coming out in the spring, as well as several lines available now.

Hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at some of the options in Project Life-esque divided page protector scrapbooking from CHA. :)


  1. This is great, Christine. So many companies with great lines! Makes me want to go back to paper scrapping for Project Life. The Happy Go Lucky set has such amazing colors, and of course Liz's Midnight set is so classy!

  2. These products look awesome - thanks for sharing your photos from CHA! It's exciting to see all the different products that are available. Plus, I just love all those colors! I'm very excited for the Midnight edition to come out in digital. :)

  3. Thank you for taking the time to share all these pics, Christine. Makes me feel like I was (almost - lol) there. This is also so relevant to me from an informational purpose - I love all these pocket options for scrapping. I can see myself doing more and more of it in the upcoming year. On a side note, I just wanted to tell you that I have been following your blog and IG feed for some time now, after "finding" you on the SC message boards. I recently (Sat, I think) got the that clear organizer from Staples for the kits after seeing yours - so thanks for the inspiration. I think this is the first time I have left a comment (I need to do it more often!) and I wanted to say thank you for taking the time to leave one on mine. :)

  4. I wish I could jump on the Project life bandwagon. The idea and the products are great. The Simple Stories stamps are on my 'want' list.

  5. These are great. I really now prefer all the other options versus BH original kits.

  6. I am looking forward to the spring kits from Becky, the stamps from Simple Stories, and the new varieties of divided page protectors from WRMK. Thanks for the round up!

  7. I love seeing all of these options in one place. I'm not doing PL or any of its variants this year, but I am thinking of giving a "system kit" to my sister-in-law as a shower or wedding gift. It's awesome to be able to compare right here in this post. Thank you!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from you!
