Happy New Year! I want to start the year off by giving you the template for a wonderful triple pocket card! These cards were designed to have three pockets for pull-out tags or cards. One of my favorite things to give friends for the holidays or for birthdays, are handmade projects with recipe cards or photos for a personal touch. So having three pocket cards provides plenty of space with six sides. I’ve included a template below on how to construct this pocket card using one sheet of card stock. The second card was made using this template, but the other three cards were made a little larger, requiring two sheets of card stock. You will need to make additional tabs if you make the card larger.

Triple Pocket Card

Make the tabs 1/2″. Fold the scored lines but then lay it flat. Take the left piece and fold it up and over the middle piece and adhere the tabs. Then take the right piece and fold it under the middle piece and adhere the tabs. Now take the bottom piece and fold it up and over the middle piece and adhere. Once the card is constructed, you can make three cards or tags to fit inside the pockets.

These cards are also being featured on the 1/7/2016 Pion Design Blog here. I used several of their paper collections: Paris Flea Market, Linnaeus Botanical Journal, To My Valentine, From Grandma’s Attic-Tinted, Pion Design Palette, and Days of Winter.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy, and blessed New Year!



Mini Album with Box

Hello!  This mini album with box was handmade using thick chipboard and then covered with the lovely blue of Pion Design’s Days of Winter collection.  It’s being featured on the Pion Design blog today here.    I’m making mini albums for each of my 7 grandchildren for the holidays and this one is for my youngest granddaughter Olivia who turned 1 year old in July.

Best wishes for a great week and wonderful holiday season!


Holiday Wall Decor

Yes this a nontraditional color for Christmas, but isn’t the soft pink just beautiful?  The paper is from Pion Design’s new Days of Winter collection and I really love all these delicate pastel colors.  You can check out this project on the Pion Design blog here.

Here are close-ups of this project.  I started with 3 chipboard hearts.  I found them in the $1 bin at Michael’s.  There were actually 4 hearts in the package for a mini-album.  I glued a long strip of satin ribbon down the backs of the pieces to connect them and then decorated with the lovely papers.
