Hello sweet friends, today we're talking POCKETS! Pocket pages are my love and how I do all of my weekly family documenting so I'm excited to share how I add extra fun to my inserts.

The Felicity Jane kits always provide freedom with the cards and patterned paper so embellishing them can be fun and simple!

Here are 6 fun tips for making your pocket cards extra awesome! 

One: Use an image and phrase from the stamp set to fill up a card and top with a tab.
Two: Hang a frame or chipboard shape off the edge to add interest. I added the weekly details inside and outside the frame!Simple Embellishments for your Pocket Cards by Andrea Gray | @FelicityJane


Three: Layer patterns on patterns like I did with the polka dot paper and the plaid heart. As long as the colors and patterns contrast, it won't look too busy!
Four: Don't toss the edges you cut off! Use them on another card like I did with the leftover polka dot frame. I added some embellishments to make it feel balanced and it can stand alone.

Five: Use a chipboard frame to actually frame a small photo then stamp a BIG title under it.

Six: Make your own title card using a combination of alphas, die cuts and stamps. Remember that they don't necessarily have to form a complete sentence, phrases that make your statement totally work!

Even if you don't work in pockets, these same ideas can be used when decorating your layouts or notebook spreads. I love how easily the colors and embellishments work together and I hope you find fun ways to make them uniquely yours!

Thanks for watching! Until next time!
