Pocket Scrapbooking with designer Patty Folchert

So have you discovered pocket pages yet, the project life phenomenon is still very popular. This is a great way to create a scrapbook quickly. So instead of buying journaling cards and titles, pull out your stamps and make them. On this page I utilized the new Summer Red Raspberry papers, stamps and embellishments.
Hello Spring Pocket Page by Patty Folchert

I started with four photos and a pocket page, two of the photos I cut down as shown. The other two I just slid right in after I added a peapod to each. The center title card I stamped with blue ink “hello spring” and added a pea pod flower and layered onto the raspberry paper. Under that in the center I added the cut down photo, 3 x 4 and slid it into its pocket. Under that is a super quick cut out from the bite size bits paper. Then I stamped the “You & Me” onto white cardstock using three shades of blue for a fade effect. Then I layered it onto yellow stripe paper and corner punched the corners.

The top left photo was cut down to 4 x 4 and layered onto two more patterned papers. I added the Spring pea pod to the photo. The right top pocket has stamped butterflies in blue ink and another cut out from the bite size bits paper matted in light blue bubbles paper.

A sweet way to capture a spring day, don’t you think? No better time than the present to try a pocket page.

Hello card by designer Patty Folchert

This floral card is all about the stamped center panel. Using the brand new Summer Red Raspberry stamp set from Jillibean Soup and a few embellishments was all that was required.

Hello card by Patty Folchert

I started plain white cardstock and began stamping the flowers in three different sizes and three different colors. The colors I chose are dark blue, medium blue, raspberry and violet. Next I grabbed a notebook tag and stamped the hello sentiment in medium blue. Then I layered on two plain white cardstock side panels as shown. After that I added the tag and a pea pod diecut rose with a butterfly wood veneer mounted on top. The butterfly was first painted using the brand new Happy Hues paint in Bashful Blue. Then I added one pink gemstone for effect.

Perfect card to say hello, however just by switching the sentiment you could adjust for any occasion.

Thinking of You Mom card by designer Patty Folchert

This month is all about the mothers in our lives. Here is a card to help celebrate Mother’s Day, any day of the year, using some new Summer Red Raspberry Soup papers and two new stamp sets. 

Thinking of You Mom card by Patty Folchert

To begin I layered the light green paper onto the base and then offset the doily paper as shown with a rounded corner punched on both. The doily paper was added with foam dots. Next I cut the striped paper strip and adhered as shown. Then using a stampable white doily I stamped directly onto it with the doily stamp in a medium blue and then the sentiment stamp in dark blue. Next I stamped the small butterflies in dark blue onto white cardstock and fussy cut them out. Then I attached them with glue dots, folding up the wings slightly. The doily was then added to card with foam dots onto border strip. Last I added the word “Mom” in pink letter stickers.

It was just that easy to create a handmade card for Mom.  Take a look at your stash and see what stamps you can layer today. The possibilities are endless.
