Hi everyone! Today, I wanted to show you how you can create and personalize your own pocket cards using the collections in the shop. Each kit comes with a set of beautiful pocket cards, but creating your own gives you the ability to customize the card so it fits perfectly with your layout and photos. This is also a great way to get the most bang for your buck and get the most use from your kits. Here are my go-to methods when creating my own pocket page cards:

1. Look for large elements

In the elements collection, there are pieces of all shapes and sizes. The larger pieces are great for making a bold statement and can make a complete card quickly. In this card, I used the word art (which would’ve been gorgeous on its own), but backed with the brush strokes to give it some color and texture.

2. Instead of resizing the paper, trim it to match the size of your cards

Each kit comes with full 12×12 papers. If you just resize it down to 6×6 or 4×4, the pattern will be very small. I prefer to use the patterns size as designed. To do this, I just cropped the page down to 3×4 and printed it matte photo paper

3. Use the papers with dies to create a unique look

With all the great designs already in the kit, sometimes its easy to forget that we can make our own with some dies and paper. I pulled out some simple die shapes, printed some pattern paper (using my crop method in #2) and ran them through my manual die cutting machine. I used my newly cut pieces assembled them on a 4×6 card to create a mini layout.

4. Take advantage of labels

Labels are by far my favorite element. Because the labels are simple shapes, they are easy to cut and can add a hint of color that can be paired with almost any card. For this one, the original title in the pocket card didn’t apply to me, but I loved the flower on the side. I covered the original title with a more applicable title on the label. Then as a result, it fit my layout!

5. Mix and match with the existing pocket cards

No need to recreate the wheel! In this card, I used one of my trusty labels and stitched it on to the pink patterned card in kit. The result? Simple, but with a touch of extra color and dimension.
