Pocket Pages with Into the Blue Scrapbooking Kit

Hello, friends!

One of the awesome add-ons to the Into The Blue Scrapbooking Kit is the Into the Blue Pocket Cards. Check out how our Creative Team featured the pocket cards in their spreads!


Tai Cortes: 6x8 Pocket Page Spread



It's Tai, and I am back with a double pocket page layout in my 6x8 album. I love using a 6x8-sized album to hold longer stories with more photos in my memory-keeping rotation. The Into The Blue Scrapbooking Kit is beautiful for documenting your summer stories. The illustrations of the beach, mermaids, octopus, and palm trees are amazing. I went through my camera roll on my phone and found a vacation we took to Colombia for my BIL’s wedding.



When looking through the pocket cards from the Into the Blue Pocket Cards, I search for a card I can journal on, a card with a sentiment, and a patterned card I can create an embellishment cluster. That is usually my formula when creating my layouts. With so many photos I wanted to use to document this trip, I created a 6 photo collage on an app called MOLDIV. On the photo collage I used the blue puffy alphas from the Into The Blue Scrapbooking Kit to spell out Colombia. I created “Summer Fun” with a chipboard piece and the alphas on the patterned card. I also added a die-cut sentiment to finish off the card. On the simple 3x4 card, I layered the stamps in the kit and put the date of the trip.



The 4x6 card from the  Into the Blue Pocket Cards was perfect to include lots of journaling. I printed the text on clear matte sticker paper so that I could still see the mixed media of the card in the background. To use more photos, I also created a flip-up with 3x4 photos, the one with the daughter at her hat in the front and when you flip it up, a family photo and one of her in the hammock. Once again, I added chipboard and die cuts from the Into The Blue Scrapbooking Kit to my photos for added details. On each card, I always make sure there are a few embellishments to make your eyes look across the whole layout at all the details. It’s a fun summery layout and I am glad it’s in my album.

Linda Jordan: Throwback Pocket Page Spread


I love the pocket cards from the Into the Blue Pocket Cards because they are a simple tool for telling your stories! Pocket pages are great for other projects besides just current project life scrapbooking, I also love them as a way to go back and tell older stories. This year, I am using the Cocoa Daisy kits to create a simple pocket page each month documenting my daughter's life in 2020 for her albums.



In addition to slipping the  Into the Blue Pocket Cards in the pockets, there are so many fun ways to use pocket page cards in a spread. One of my favorites is to cut down a card and turn it into an embellishment. For this photo of my daughter on her new bed, I cropped down this fun quote from a card, rounded the corners, and stapled it in place.


Sometimes I will cut quotes from cards up into strips! For this one that said "happier than a seagull with a french fry", I thought the quote would work well if I added it to this photo of my daughter on the back steps. To prevent the card from covering too much of the photo, I trimmed the card using my paper trimmer into strips and glued them in place. I hope these tips help you to use your pocket cards to get your stories told!
