Valentine Pocket Pages

I am so excited because I created some die designs for Sizzix. They are all Bigz Pro dies so they make big, practical things.

This die is called Pocket Page & Tag. From one sheet of 12"x12", two-sided, scrapbooking cardstock, you can create a two-sided pocket page and tag. You can create an entire mini pocket album or I designed it to fit on two rings of a three-ring binder to hold bits of paper so that they don't get lost.

This photo shows a single page on the left as well as an embellished mini-album on the right.

The next three photos show how two pocket pages are created from a single piece of paper.



The pages are really simple to fold and then you can begin to embellish. I chose to make this a Valentine mini-book. I still have a lot of embellishing and personalizing to do to this mini-album but I wanted to share what I have done so far.

The back cover (left page below) is embellished with the Flowers, 3-D die and inside the pocket is an old Valentine image from the Graphics Fairy that I printed and cut out.


The left page below has a butterfly from the new Tim Holtz, Mini Butterflies Set.

I used the Paper Rosette die on the left page below.  

More pages embellished with hearts, lace, ribbon and flowers. The flower on the right has one of the decorated brads that I made using images from the Graphics Fairy.

Another Valentine image fromt the Graphics Fairy. The page on the right has some vintage buttons and a vintage number 14 marker.

I die cut six, two-sided pages (total of 12 pages) and tags. I decorated these for Valentines Day but there are so many ways to embellish both the pockets and the tags. Plus these pages can be used in practical ways such as holding coupons, receipts or ATCs. The folded page size is 4"x6".

I am just so thrilled to be able to say that I designed this die! I hope you enjoy this sneak peek.
