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 HSN.com)!

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

Hope to see you then!


Catching Up: Since the last time I was here …

We soaked up the last days of summer with lemonade stands …


Celebrated Cam’s 8th Birthday with friends …


Endured a fun, but tiring week at scout camp …


Fed lost baby birds until their mother found them …



Welcomed another puppy into our home (after our Sweet Sadie unexpectedly passed away from a pre-existing condition :(  ) …


Endured a hard, but rewarding experience at Pioneer Trek …


Pierced two sets of ears …


Went camping as a family one more time …


Celebrated Owen’s 13th birthday …


Maryn’s 11th birthday …


and Jensyn’s 16th birthday!


That’s right! This girl is now on the road, folks!


Camryn endured hours of school shopping for everyone (here she is taking a little rest with the neck pillows at TJ Maxx) …


The kids endured “First Day of School” photos by Mom …




And I decided to chop my hair off … I missed doing my hair straight sometimes …


But I still do it curly, too.


I’m sorry I haven’t been around much lately. As you can see, the end of summer was pretty crazy for us! It feels good to be back on a schedule now that school is in flow. I have some new projects to share with you, that I’ll be sharing soon. And I promise to say “Hello” more often!

Hope you are doing great! See you again soon!

Summer So Far and a Sneak Peek

Oh, my! Where have the weeks gone. It seems to happen like that every year in June … I’m so sorry that my posting has taken a backseat for the past few weeks. Hopefully, you have been out enjoying the beginning of your summer, too.

So what has been going on in my neck of the woods? Let’s see … last time I left off with you I was heading off to HSN with Lisa for the June 11th show. Here’s a selfie of us in between appearances. (Left to Right: Me, Jennifer Duncan, and Lisa Bearnson) I feel so grateful to work with such wonderful people!


I was home for a day, and then left home again for a week to go on our Summer family vacation to San Francisco, California.

Our favorite thing was to take the red, open-topped, double-decker bus around town to see all of the sites. The ticket was good for three days and we could hop on and off as many times as we wanted. We saw every site there was to see and loved every minute of it. San Fran is such a cool city!


Along with our 4th of July celebrations last week, this cute girl of mine turned eight years old. She was also baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday. We are so thankful to all of our friends and family who came to spend time with us on this special day.


As you can imagine I haven’t had a lot of time for scrapping, but I *DO* have a sneak peek to share with you of one of Lisa’s new products that will be on HSN on July 23rd. These are the Inspired Inc. All Occasion Title Cards … and you know what is AWESOME about these babies?! Not only are there cards in there for every holiday and season of the year (which is awesome all by itself), but dozens of the cards include dimensional elements! How cool is that?! If you are like me and love embellishing your pocket-style cards, you are going to love these. Here is a a peek.


And then of course I need to show you a pocket-style page I put together using these cute cards.







As we get closer to the show, I will share with you some traditional-style scrapbook pages I created with these cute cards. Guess what?! Even though the show is not until July 23rd, you can pick up this cute pocket card kit now if you would like! You can FIND THEM HERE in the HSN.com store.

Have a great week!
