Did you know that pocket cards can be utilized for more than just pocket-page scrapbooking? Their size and scale, along with their sentiments and illustrations make them great for small-scale memory keeping and planners, too! Today, we’re sharing some inspired ways to utilize pocket cards from the Doodles & Dashes II Modern Memory-Keeping Kit for a variety of purposes.
Jil Larson: Pocket-Page Scrapbooking
The pocket cards in the Doodles & Dashes II Modern Memory-Keeping Kit are all so good! Here is the first of the several pocket-page spreads I hope to make with this kit. In the bottom right pocket, I documented the little things I am enjoying so far this fall. It was fun to have the chance to use the wonderful rub-ons on this plain gray and white card. It also gives the eyes a resting place in my otherwise detailed spread.
In the upper right pocket, I made a pocket from yellow-orange vellum stitched with orange thread. The pocket gave me a place to include some of the tumbling leaves patterned paper from the kit. I placed the pocket on the watercolor card and then layered on top a phrase sticker, a puffy sticker, and some more of the paper cut into a flower shape with a die. I love creating layered collages of this sort! I stamped on the photo of my dog to reinforce the little story I tell about her in my typed journaling.
For the photos in the middle of the spread, I include more of the delightful puffy leaves, along with a couple of round stickers and glitter dots. The photo of my watercolor sketchbook page on the bottom documents the painting challenge I’ve been doing this month, which I journal about on a label anchored by a puffy acorn. That card includes another label stamped with the date of my watercolor sketch.
I was so glad to see a roller date stamp included in the Doodles & Dashes Classified: Memory Keeping Edition Kit—these are a go-to tool for me. I hope you have some fun this month with the beautiful pocket cards from the November kit!
