Hi Lily Bee fans! It's Danielle here today. I have been totally in love with these journaling cards since the day I received them and just can't stop using them on projects! I love the patterns and pretty designs on each one. Today I decided to use them to make little pockets and then turn the pockets into a mini album of some of our favorite pictures of our Maine trip this month. I cut pieces of vellum for the pages and then stitched the journaling cards on the bottoms as pockets to hold photos!
On the cover, I used some various pieces from all the lines Bag of Bits and stitched them together to create a little hanging banner, which dresses up the front cover just a "bit"! (No pun intended- ha.)
You can also add the photo over the top of the journaling cards and journal next to the photo like I did on this page. I decorated very simply with the Victoria Park Cardstock Sticker banners.
What is so fun about the journaling cards is that they mix and match so effortlessly when put together, even though they are from all of the different Lily Bee lines! I used one to make the pocket here and another one to tuck inside behind the photo.
I really love the numbered journaling cards from the Handmade line! Perfect for an age, a number of people in the photo, etc. So many uses for them.
Don't forget that pockets can be used to hold memorabilia also, tickets, stubs, letters, etc!
I hope this inspired you to try something new today. This album only took me about an hour to finish! My fastest one yet, but I hope to add many more pages!
