Pocket Cards on a Layout...

Hey there, friends!  Today I'm sharing a fun and easy page I created for My Scraps and More.  The big Summer-long Got Talent Contest is in full swing, and I created this one for a "create a grid" challenge last week.  I have tons of these Project Life/Pocket Cards from several collections, and they make it really easy to create a grid.

I pulled out some of the Record It Just Splendid cards from my My Mind's Eye collection and went to work.  I picked out the ones I liked and that matched my photos and laid them out.  I don't have a sewing machine, so I used a border stamp that looks like stitching.  I used lots of embellishments around the photos, and I made my very first pinwheel.  I really like how it turned out :)

I adhered my cut file title to transparency paper to make it easier to adhere to the layout.  I also used some stickers, brads and drywall tape to add some interest around the picture cluster.

I threw in some paint and stamping, as well...

I know these were all the rage several months ago, but I just never got around to trying it.  Turns out, it's really easy...haha!  Love the summer feel of it.

Messy thread to add more color and easy to do :)

This drywall tape is amazing!  It's easy to cut and tear, and it holds color well.  You could even use it as a mask....that's next on my list :)

You are more than welcome to come jump in at any time during the Summer if you'd like to play along with us!  There are weekly challenges as well as a big one at the end.  Come check it all out HERE!

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
