But you may be thinking, I don’t scrap Pocket Life pages and so I don’t have any Pocket Life cards. Well, not to worry, because as fun as these cards are to use on your scrapbook pages, they can be even more fun to make!
To start a Pocket Life card, open a new document in your desired size. Cards can be any size you would like, but are typically 3×4, 4×6, 4×4, or 3×3 inches. Because of the smaller dimensions, most scrapbook products will need to be resized to fit on your cards, but other than that, they can be treated as just another layout by adding paper, embellishments, alphas, quotes, etc. Our ScrapSimple club offers templates each month that can help you create customizable journal cards that coordinate with your page or project.
Once your cards are finished, you can simply merge the layers and drag them onto your layout. If you’re a hybrid scrapper, cards can be placed on an 8.5×11-inch document, printed, and cut out to use on your hybrid pages.
Whatever type of scrapper you are – Pocket Life, traditional, or hybrid – don’t overlook the fun and versatility of using Pocket Life cards on your layouts. Give it a try today, then share your layout in the Scrap Girls Gallery so we can leave you some love.
