Scrappy Pockets

Hi Everybody! I created these "Scrappy Pockets" this afternoon. I used the Stampin Up "5 in 1 Template" to create these pockets using designer paper.

Initially, I wasn't sure what I could create using these pockets other than as an envelope for a card then I thought a scrappy project would be something different.

I cut the designer papers with the template and created the pockets. I designed the pockets with a bunch of scrapbook embellishments. I'm getting over my inhibition on laying out the embellishments. I'm learning...:)





On a cardstock I created sort of a layout for my pictures which are inserted into the pockets and can be pulled out from the notch I created using a circle punch.














Here are the layouts outside of pockets. I think I may eventually attach the pockets on to a large scrapbook layout and use them to sort of make a fun "pull out" aspect of a scrapbook album. What you think? Is that a good idea? Any suggestions what I could do with these Scrappy Pockets?

Until later, folks!!

I love them! These would easily fit on a scrapbook page anywhere that a large photo would fit. Where do i find a 5 in 1 template? You are the second person who suggested using one this week! Great pieces!

These scrappy pockets are so beautiful! You could incorporate them into some kind of mini album as well. I like your idea of putting them on a 12 x 12 page too.
