Hello, friends! Do you want to make a beautiful 12x12 layout or a card with the Doodles & Dashes Collection? Keep reading this "Teach Me Tuesday" post to learn more! Jil shows us how to...
Pockets are perfect for all kinds of paper crafting endeavors. They can be used in memory keeping using a pocket page format. You can combine them or add them to traveler's notebook inserts. For planners, they can be functional or they can be the perfect place for all the pretty embellishments. And while you can always fill pockets with pocket cards from the Doodles and Dashes Pocket Card Kit they can also serve as the perfect place to hold stickers and important papers.
"Whilst setting up my Doodles and Dashes Simple Dori from the Doodles and Dashes Traveler's Notebook Memory Keeping Kit, I decided to make a pocket on the inside cover.
From the Doodles and Dashes Dashboards Kit I choose a pretty floral dashboard which I fussy cut out around the flowers. Next, I laminated it to create a transparent pocket front. Using some sticky tape/cello tape I adhered it to the inside cover.
I found the pocket was the perfect size for the smaller sticker sheets, like the ones from the Doodles and Dashes Planner Add-On Kit.
What is Jennie's favorite part about pocket page scrapbooking? Embellishing the pocket cards, of course!
"Pocket pages are SO fun, but I find I do not do them that often. However, when I do, dressing up the cards is one of my favorite parts. And with the Doodles and Dashes Modern Memory Keeping Kit, you have plenty to work with!
It's easy to do - a journaling card with some stamping. Or, a simple die-cut on a decorative card. Why stop there? Why not add a glitter dot or two to dress up the die-cut? Maybe a puffy sticker, too?
You don't have to feel like you have to go crazy, a simple dressed-up corner or peeking out from under a photo will make your pockets look extra special!"
