Right at Home Scrapbooking

As many of you may know, I have recently had the blessing to be invited onto the Right at Home Scrapbooking Design Team (check out the online galleries here... http://rightathomescrapbooking.ning.com/.) If this is news to you... you can STILL share in my excitement! With each project I post to my design team gallery, I am amazed to be in such a sweet position! Imagine... the reason I began scrapbooking and stamping to begin with; to share the talents and inspiration of Jesus Christ with others... and now that is opened up to even more than those within my own reach. Praise God!

This scrapbook page is my most recent gallery entry. I LOVE patterned paper! And I really enjoy when it is decorative around the edges (waiting for SU! to jump in on that idea.) However, I always feel a bit guilty when I use only one of these fun papers on one scrapbook layout. I like to make my patterned papers and Design Series Papers stretch as far as possible (since they cost a bit more than regular card stocks.)

I decided to try a little something with this piece of patterned paper and still achieve the look of the entire ppr on my layout. See the following photo for how I cut it and then the next photo for how I used it on my pocket card (inside and out.) Pretty cool, huh?

To create this fun pocket card, simply begin with a 4x12 piece of card stock and score at 4" and 8". On one of the ends, trim away a triangular portion. Fold in the remaining portion and adhere only the bottom to create a pocket. Easy peasy!
