Pocket Scrapbooking With Top Dog Dies

Good Friday Morning!  
I was so honored to have been asked to rejoin the 
Design Team for the remainder of the year :)
I really enjoy working with their dies and finding new and unusual ways to use them.

For today's assignment I selected a set of dies that I never had the chance to use:
With these, I made a set of 3X4 Pocket Cards for pocket scrapbooking!

I started by cutting a sheet of embossed (dot) cardstock to 3" X 4" and then 
rounded the corners with a punch.  Next, I cut various patterned papers 
(by Doodlebug Design) to 2.5" X 3.5" and corner rounded the edges as well.

 For each card I die cut the different shapes from the set and then added them to 
the card with either foam adhesive or used the Xyron 1" Sticker Maker.

Because the cards are designed to slide down into a pocket, I kept
the dimension minimal...which is hard for me 'cause I love dimension :D

I also cut some lettering from the same embossed cardstock with the 
Vintage Alphabet Die Set.  I few more accents such as twine and enamel dots
and the cards are all ready for journaling and filling pages!

Visit for more ideas :)


  1. Way to go - these are adorable pocket page pieces!! Thanks for showing us how!!

  2. I don't know how I missed this...congratulations on re-joining the Design Team and I plan to make these identical 3 x 4 cards myself! LOVE them!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee!

**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
