Using New Pocket Cards by on a 12×12 Layout!

Did you know that has a new line a pocket cards? In my latest process video on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I create a collage background using the Everyday Moments Simple Scrapbooking Pocket Cards by!

I love pocket scrapbooking, but over the years, I have incorporated pocket cards in a variety of scrapbooking projects – travelers notebooks, mini albums, card projects, and traditional layouts! The Simple Scrapbooking Pocket Cards are stunning and feature modern designs and prints.

I used one 4×6 inch and three 3×4 inch pocket cards to create a collage background on a 12 x 12 inch scrapbook layout. Using items from my stash, I added a title, pattern paper, and embellishments to round out the overall design.

The Simple Scrapbook Pocket Cards come in a pack of 3 x 4 inch and 4 x 6 inch double sided cards. There are plenty of cards for journaling, adding photos, and embellishments. If you like using pocket cards, be sure to check these out!

To see this layout come together, check out the following process video. Links to available products used for this project are posted below!
