More Pocket Cards on Traditional Pages

The weekend is here! Do you have anything fun planned? Are you planning on doing any scrapping? I am! I’m also hoping to convince the family to go on a fall picnic in the mountains … crossing my fingers they’ll all be up for it! The leaves haven’t started to change on the trees in town, but every night on the news viewers are sending in pictures of the gorgeous views up in the mountains. It’s making me itch to get up there and enjoy it! :)

But before I break for the weekend, I thought I would share with you a couple more block-style scrapbook page designs using the All-Occasion Title Card Scrapbooking set.



One thing I never purge are my holiday papers and embellishments. They always mix together so wonderfully! Here, I used the All-Occasion Title Cards to add new life to an older collection that was hanging out in my stash.

In the top right corner of my page, I used one of the dimensional cards as is (I really liked all of the Halloween words and the fact that some of the words were already popped up on the card). Next. I cut out the green “Happy Halloween 31″ banner from another card, wrapped twine around the top, and then added a strip of black polka dot paper so that its height would “match up” with the other card. The spider dangling from the upper left corner was cut from yet another card.


At the bottom, I used a horizontal 3×4 card for my  journal block. The photo on the right needed a little something, so I trimmed the “Spooktacular” word strip from another card, added it to the bottom,accenting it with a flair badge.




More 3×4 cards get stacked on top of each other to the right of the focal photo. I decided to cut out the “Ho! Ho! Ho” words from another card and add it to the journal card. A bit of pen-stitching and embellishments accent the Title card.


I cut the “Merry Christmas” words from the same card as the “Ho! Ho! Ho!” word strip, notched the ends and placed it at the bottom of the page to accent the three smaller photos.


Thanks so much for coming by today! I hope you have a great weekend!


Pocket Cards on Traditional Pages

Yesterday I shared with you what I’ve been up to with my family, and today I’m going to start catching up on what I’ve been doing scrappy-wise. I’ve been making lots of fun stuff with Lisa’s latest HSN products! I’ll share those with you this coming week, as well as what’s coming up for the October 7th HSN Craft Day. (Mark your calendars!)


Back on THIS POST I shared with you a pocket page I created with Lisa’s NEW dimensional All-Occasion Title Cards. If you are looking for a pocket card set that will fill in all the holiday and seasonal spots in your pocket albums, then you’ll definitely want to check this one out! They are great for Project Life-style scrapping, but I’m also going to show you how you can incorporate them into your regular scrapping.

I LOVE a good grid or block design on a scrapbook page. These types of designs especially come together easily when using pocket cards. Arrange the cards how you like using pictures in some of the spaces.



On the left side of the page, I used one of the vertical 4×6 cards as a place for journaling.


On the right side of the page, I stacked two 3×4 cards on top of each other. How cute are those 3D apples all ready to go on that bottom card. … (You know me and my LOVE for dimension!) Add a die cut paper clip to the blue card, some stitching here-and-there, and a few embellishments around the page and your layout is DONE!


Here’s another example of a grid design. This time I used I used all 3×4 vertical cards.



I used my sewing machine to zig zag stitch along all of the seams between the cards to visually connect everything together and add texture.



I used orange letter stickers to add a few details to the “Explore” card. Easy peasy!


Tomorrow, check back for more ideas using the All-Occasion Title Cards (available HERE on!

(Note: All die-cutting created with the Silhouette Cameo.)

Hope to see you then!
