Create Your Own Pocket Filler Cards

Hello Everyone

I wanted to share some different ways that you can create your own filler cards to customize your layouts whether you create traditional scrapbook layouts or pocket-style layouts.  I created these 6 filler cards with stamps, dies and embossing folder.  For the colouring I used Copic Markers.  I used Lawn Fawn's 4x6 and 3x4 stitched journaling dies for all my cards on this layout.  I will be putting them in the Design F Project Life sheet protector as it's laid down on the last photo here.  Even though there are so many different filler cards out there I find that doing my own (and using up some of my supplies that I buy) just makes it that much more personalized and special.  My daughter who this layout is about when she turned 3 was very happy with what I had created and the time I put into it (this definitely does take some time).

 I love Mandy's idea on creating your own pocket filler cards!  I agree with her that sometimes there just isn't the right card to fit your layout, and it gives your layout a more personalized look when you create your own.  I love the freedom of expression and creative design which comes from creating my own cards.  It feels like I'm creating a layout only on a much smaller scale.  Using leftover paper and embellishments, which may otherwise go unused, is also another great advantage.  

Here are some 3x4 pocket filler cards I created using items from my paper and embellishment stash:



I just love how they turned out.  I may use some of them on my layouts, inserts for pocket pages, or maybe even for some handmade cards.   The possibilities are only limited to my imagination.  Thanks, Mandy, for the inspiration!

  6. Wow - such beautiful cards by both of you! I am new to these little cards and really like making my own. Of course I seem to be collecting more than I use....must get better at getting them onto layouts/pocket pages!

  7. Love it! Love that sticked die, that's awesome. If you are like me and don't have the die, pen marks can be made to look like stitching too! :)
