Custom 4x6 Cards for Pocket Scrapbooking

Hey scrappers! Since yesterday was the 1st day of fall, I posted on social media about one of my own pocket scrapbooks that was a pretty fall themed album.  It reminded me of a custom made project that I thought would be fun to share. This sweet client asked me to make a bunch of 4"x6" cards for her pocket page scrapbook. Take a look ...

So, what is pocket scrapbooking? Well, in a nutshell ... it's a way to design scrapbook pages in a block style using clear page protectors. These pages are divided into smaller sized sections, or pockets that are usually 3x4, 4x4, 4x6, 2x2 or 5x7. Then, you simply slip your photos, journaling cards, or other ephemera into each pocket to create an entire layout.

Here's an example of a pocket page I made with pictures of my sweet nieces. The cute little December card in the center is basically what I made a bunch of for my client.

She wanted a variety of cute embellished cards for different themes, holidays and seasons to go with her fun photos. 

Designing and making pocket cards is a much smaller commitment than working on an entire page. So, if you're short on time but love to scrap ... this is an awesome way to still be creative.

You can make these cards with scraps of some of your favorite papers and have fun embellishing with stickers, die-cuts and my favorite ... little enamel sprinkles!

I think the Easter cards are my favorite. I love those happy spring colors! I hope this inspires you to try pocket scrapbooking. It's super fun and you get quick results. 😍

Happy Scrapping!
