Documenting Your Hobbies from Laura

Hi everyone!
Like to scrapbook? Into pocket pages? Have you given any thought to documenting your favorite hobby?
We think you are going to enjoy today's post from Laura O'Donnell. Take it away, Laura!
A scrapbook page by Laura O'Donnell for
"About a year ago I took up knitting and I've discovered that knitters are prolific Instagrammers.  I was looking at these pictures on my phone and thought it would be fun to chronicle the knitting of this sweater in a pocket page layout.  
I used the License Plate alpha stamps for the "madewell" title on the top left 4x6 card, which is the sweater pattern name.  
I love these alphabet stamps!  They go with everything.  The "look" arrow is from the Always Arrows set and is a great size for fitting in small spaces.
The stamps on the top right card are from the Scrapbookers Embellish It stamp set.  There are a few stamps in this set that apply to general crafting.
In the middle row I used the Simply Circles die and left a lot of the holes open.
I used a check stamp from Flairific but there are a lot of other circle stamp sets that will fit perfectly in this spot in the die. Then right next to it I set the Straight Talk Smile die cut under the photo.  Die cuts are such a great way to add flat dimension to pocket pages.  The plastic pockets aren't very roomy to begin with and as these books fill up dents will happen!
Then in the last row since I had 3 full sized photos with no embellishments I wanted to make the journaling card stand out so I layered the Hello die from Why Who Hello over the Cool Tab die over a lightly patterned journaling card.  
Do you see my cat in the bottom left?  He loves to sit on my lap while I knit. He doesn't even swat the yarn. :)"
Thank you for sharing your page, Laura!
