Scrapbook Sunday: September Messy Box

Scrapbook Sunday September Messy Box (via I'm so happy my favorite season is finally here! And the September Messy Box is the perfect way to document it. The colors in this kit are so warm and pretty. While the kit has a back-to-school theme, the patterns on the journaling cards are so versatile! The ledger paper is perfect for writing down your lists, goals, or memories. I used it to write my favorite things about fall.

Scrapbook Sunday September Messy Box (via     For my first page, I really wanted to celebrate the start of fall! I printed photos with my favorite fall activities to highlight what I'm most excited about for this season. The 3" x 3" photo pocket pages are great because they are perfect for printing Instagram photos. I filled the rest of the pocket pages with 3" x 3" journaling cards from this month's kit. The warm colors and cute patterns instantly gave the page a fall vibe.

They are just so cute! I attached the pencil to the outside of a 3" x 3" photo pocket page and filled the pocket with sequins. Having transparent pockets can add a cool, layered look to your pages. I attached the eye glasses in a darker plaid journaling card, so the white really popped. It's so simple, but makes the page feel special.

I kept this layout pretty simple with a few photos as embellishments. I still had enough alpha stickers to spell out "book lover," so I added the letters and a chipboard sticker of a notebook to create a fun reading themed card. I created another book themed card by stamping on vellum and attaching it to a journaling card. I'm so happy with how these pages turned out!

  • Great post love how you combined the items 🙂 I would love to see a future scrapbook sunday that talks about how to make the backs of pages look good when you have empty pockets, like the one you have there with the pencil in it. 🙂

  • I love this post, it has given me so much motivation to get a scrap book on the go!!


  • As always, super cute! I’ve never had a scrapbook before and this makes me want to start one.


  • This is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen! I love this so much. Totally inspired to start scrapbooking!


  • In spring I can’t wait to be more outside, but now in fall I just love that we are more indoors and warm and cozy. Although a great sunny day with a lunch in the garden is also great. Just lots of tea and books and I am happy. No specials habits around fall

  • Hi Julia!

    I just leave it transparent, so you see the photo or journaling card from the next page.
