Digital Journal Cards for Paper Pocket Pages


I'm working on filling up my Snap binder and other Project-Life-type pocket pages.

I like preparing journaling cards beforehand, to slot into my pocket pages, so I have some ready for journaling with my photos. In general, these pocket pages document my daily life, so generic journaling cards and embellishments work well in almost every case. I just stick to the general colour theme of the album to make sure everything looks unified. 

I like adding lots of dimension and small details to make each card special. In this case, I laid out my digital cards in GIMP to maximize the printing area, printed the cards on thick good quality cardstock and went ahead with putting in all the embellishments that I love. 


Here's how I laid out my digital journaling cards in GIMP



If you like the cards, Dunia is selling them in a great bundle at a very worthwhile price. Check them out at: Journal Cards - Bundle (vol.3) http://www.mscraps.com/shop/Journal-Cards-Bundle-vol.3/.  You get many cards for a good price and you can print as many as you wish, even resize them if you wanted.

And finally, the finished cards, which have already been slotted into my binder.
