One of my favorite things about the POCKET PAGES™ program is the beautiful collection of patterned cards in each themed pack. I like to use patterned cards to draw attention to a photo or quote. They add an artistic element without distracting from the main focus of the page. I like them so much that I use them ALL THE TIME! So...I have a two great tips for you!
1. Turn a MAMBI CARDS™ pad into POCKET PAGES™ cards!
Whether you have leftover cards or you just bought a pad for the cool, coordinating patterns, it's easy to trim away and create lots of patterned cards to use in your POCKET PAGES™ page protectors. From one pad, I cut (48) 3"x4" cards and (24) 4"x6" cards. That's 72 cards! If you wanted only 3"x4" cards...you get 96!
2. Separate patterned cards in your storage container.
I have all my themes separated and labeled and I keep my patterned cards in the front of my storage container (which happens to be a clear plastic shoebox from The Container Store) for quick and easy access. And, I like to organize them by color...ROYGBIV...because I'm weird that way. What can I say? It gives me great pleasure to see them in order.
Keeping them "front & center" has been a great way to get the most use out of all these awesome cards!
Hope these quick tips help. Don't forget to share any tips you have with us!
