Using Pocket Cards in Your Planner

One of my favorite things to do each month is to use the cards from the Memory Keeping Pocket Kit in my planner. There are so many fun ways to use them. The colors, motifs and quotes are always beautiful and make a perfect addition to my planner. I’m here to show you how I incorporated them this month.

I always start by decorating my front pockets. Here I chose the heart patterned card to adorn my window pocket. I layered some cute die cuts over it, since it’s a small pattern. I tucked the XOXO card into the top with the border peeking out.  Additionally, I used one of the Love Notes cards (not from the Pocket Kit) on here. I always love these, as well.

On the cover of my Pocket sized budget insert, I used the February calendar card. I added some chipboard and the acrylic word to give it some dimension. This calendar is highlighted with my pay days in order to help me with my budgeting. I adhered some washi to it, as well.

I am using a variety of different sized inserts in my Personal Rings planner. One of my sections uses some of the dashboards and pages from the Personal Daisy Dori notebook, that I hole punched. On this page, I trimmed the 4 by 6 February banner card and adhered it to the page. I decided to write down the challenges for this month. I love having them in my planner so I can plan my photos. This is the first month that I hand wrote  them. Doing this gave me a better idea of what I’ll be doing. Handwriting is definitely a great way to remember anything.

The next insert is my Daisy Weeks planner. I created a cover for it using some of the folded pattern papers, the tag that came with the kit and the PS I Love You 3 by 4 card. I layered some alpha stickers along with die cuts on here. I finished it off with a punched paper border and some pom pom trim. the pocket card is the perfect base for this design!

Another way that I used a card was as a Tip In in my Daisy Weeks insert. I use this booklet for my DT work. Since I often have many to do lists, I dedicate the right side page for them. I scored the right edge of the card and used some washi tape to adhere it to the side. It folds open and I can list more items underneath it, leaving the pretty design of the card showing on this page.

As you can see, there are many ways to use the Pocket Cards. I hope you were able to get some ideas! As of this writing, there are still kits available. Be sure to grab your’s today!
