One of the benefits of Pocket Scrapbooking is that it doesn't require a tremendous amount of time to conquer. Just ask CP Gal, Ashley Cannon Newell, whom has managed to simplify the process of pocket scrapbooking even further with today's easy-to-create pocket inserts!
It would be perfect if we could create and craft all day, but for most of us, that is not an option. We all love beautiful papers and embellishments, so I thought it would be a great time to share how to make simple journal cards to have on hand for your Crate Life pocket scrapbooking pages. I made a dozen of them very quickly with products from the new Open Book collection.
Using a 12" x 12" sheet of white cardstock, I trimmed it into twelve–3" x 4" journal cards.
Using Open Book, I added chipboard die cuts, vellum die cuts, Thickers, cardstock die cuts, and more. They were very easy to make in just a short amount of time. They will really come in handy when I need to document those special moments in life.
The phrases and stickers in this collection make it hassle-free to customize your own journal cards. I left open space on some cards for journaling or to insert a photo.
Journal cards do not have to be elaborate or ornate. They can be simple and convey exactly what your photos show. Choose a simple color scheme and just about any photo will match your new minimally made journal cards. I hope you get a chance to create some today or tomorrow.
