Pocket Card Swaps!

Well, I guess it has been a while lol. I totally fell off of the "30 Days of Thankful" wagon. But, I am still going to finish my thankful album. Maybe I'll do that this Thanksgiving ha ha. The holidays, and really the last 3 months of the year in general, are just so busy that I ran out of time. I should probably just do a page a week until I'm caught up I guess.
I'm gonna try this blogging thing again. I know I keep saying that, but I do so enjoy sharing my creative "stuff" with other creative people. So, here we go again.
I recently joined a pocket scrapbooking group on Facebook where we make our own pocket cards and exchange them (the group's name is Pocket Card Swaps if you're interested .). I'm having loads of fun and wanted to share some things I am making.
My first item is a twinchie. The theme this month is a color theme. This is the swatch we were given to work with:
And this is the twinchie that I made for that color scheme.
 By the way, a twinchie is just a 2" X 2" square card decorated to insert into pockets for Project Life or pocket page style scrapbooking, or for use on regular scrapbook pages as well. 

Another of the swaps I joined for the month of July was for cards following a certain color theme as well. For this swap, we could make either 3" X 4" or 4" X 6" cards (the most popular sizes for pocket  page style scrapbooking). This is the color swatch we were given:
And this is the 3" X 4" card that I made to swap out for this month:

I hope you enjoyed seeing my work today. I have a couple more swaps I am still working on. One of them is card candy in a free theme (Card candy are just little bits of handmade embellishments that you make to go on your cards or photos as decoration.). The other one is for a different group, and that was is also for card candy, but the theme is Christmas. I'm excited for that one!

I haven't started either of these themes, but I will be sharing what I do when I have them done. So, stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by today! Leave me a comment if you like what you see or if you have questions. I'd love to answer any questions anyone has if I'm able. I sometimes don't know the brands of things I use because they've been in my stash forever. But I will do my best.

Oh, it's so good to see you posting again, Shell ! We've missed you. :-D Love the card and the whole idea of pocket cards. Maybe I'll get involved with a local group out here, or start one of my own. Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs
