Pocket Card Perfect Special

There’s nothing quite like a gorgeous pocket card! Our Picture My Life™ Cards were originally designed for pocket scrapbooking, but I love using them for card bases, photo mats, journaling, and embellishments. When our Pocket Card Perfection special was announced, I knew that I had to stock up on these two NEW pocket card packs.

The Lovely and Party Time Picture My Life™ Cards each come in sets of 24 cards, 12 each in 2 sizes—3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″. These cards are all double-sided and feature unique designs, sentiments, icons, and patterns, making it easy to integrate them into your artwork alongside the papers and stickers from both collections.

From February 15 through March 31, you can save on a new selection of exclusive Picture My Life™ Cards. These gorgeous cards have been designed to coordinate with the Lovely and Party Time paper collections, which are featured in our 2020–2021 Core Products Catalog.

The cards designed for the Lovely collection feature the same soft, pastel hues and elegant style that are so prevalent in this collection. This is one of my favorite pattern paper collections this year. I can’t wait to show my VIP Group a few of the cards I made with this paper pack.

On the other end of the spectrum, the Party Time Picture My Life™ Cards are sure to please with their playful designs and vibrant color palette! The Party Time collection is perfect for any celebration. With their beautiful designs, it’s not hard to see why these cards are something to be excited about!


Both the Lovely and Party Time Picture My Life™ Cards are available individually, but you can also purchase them in the discounted Pocket Card Perfection Bundle, which is available at 15%-off discounted price! These adorable cards will only be available for a limited time, while supplies last—don’t miss the opportunity to craft with them!

Love Your Stash Day Three | Pocket Cards & Paper

Are you ready to Love Your Stash and start using some of your ever-growing papercraft collection? Throughout February, the Creative Design Team will be showing you unique ways to use your stash, and we are asking you to join us in this challenge. As you complete each weekly challenge, use #cdtloveyourstash when you post your creation. 


This week, our Creative Design Team is tackling paper and pocket cards that we have “collected” through the years. I will admit, it was very freeing to grab whatever I wanted to use from my craft space – It allowed me to pull a variety of elements together from both current and past collections to create a page for my daughter.

I began pulling out some Mix-In papers that were collecting dust and paired them with some Wood Grain paper. Mix-Ins are some of my favorite patterns to use, but I often overbuy them because I enjoy them so much. 

After creating the background, I reached for some pocket cards that would complement the photo. Lately, my brain has had a difficult time concentrating, and I become easily overwhelmed. As I was trying to figure out PML placement, I became frustrated with my lack of brainpower. Thank goodness I have such a wonderful husband who helped me narrow down the elements for this page. 

I chose a few pocket cards from the Bloom with Grace collection along with some black and white cards from an older collection. I honestly have no idea when these are from, but I know that they are from Close to My Heart. 

I also added a few stickers from the Bloom with Grace collection to match the theme of the layout. The other elements on this page are from recent and retired die cuts that are stored in my die cut binders. (I talk about these in my video.) 

Once all the elements were on the page, I went back the next day to see what needed fixing. I am sure that I am not the only one who does this. Sometimes, I need to walk away from a project and come back to process what changes are needed.

You can view the creation of this layout as you watch my process video.  I show you how I used pocket card as photo mats, titles, and journaling cards. 


The Creative Design Team would love for you to join us in our Love Your Stash challenge. If you need a little inspiration, you can view all of our weekly creations on our YouTube channels.  Make sure to subscribe to each channel so that you are notified when we add new videos. 

If you choose to accept the challenge, make sure to use the #CDTloveyourstash hashtag in you posts so that we can see what you have made.
