Counterfeit Kit Challenge #2: Pocket Page Inspiration

Since I have been hoping that Pocket Pages are the answer for my limited time scrapbooking, I have collected quite a few cards.  I fear this may have turned into a new obsession.  LOL  Hence the idea for Challenge #2 this month on The Counterfeit Kit Challenge:  Use a Pocket Page type card on your project.


Yes, that is TWO Iris cases full of cards.  **See how neatly they are organized?  Happy Sigh**  And a kit that will not fit in the cases.  You will note however, that ALL of my cards have either been purchases on really good sale, given to me or have been purchases as partial kits from a Facebook Group online.  Did you notice the red sticker on the Dear Lizzy kit in the box?  Yes, it really does say $8!  Thank goodness for whomever took the shrink wrap off of the outside and returned it to Michaels (the inside was still shrink wrapped!).  So at least my collection is not costing me much.


The card I picked is from the Dear Lizzy collection and is a great match for one of the papers from my Counterfeit Kit for this month (see my post April Counterfeiting Fun to see my kit).  I also pulled some great Studio Calico feathers that I have been hoarding because I was not quite sure what to do with them.  LOL


This card is much softer than I usually make.  I love the color pallet though.  I should use it more often.

What a great idea. I too have been collecting those cards - we're as bad as boys collecting baseball cards, aren't we. Maybe after I get mine sorted out into a newly purchased case (alas not on sale), I would make up a few cards. Your example is splendid - great color palette.

Wow-Wow-Wow! 2 cases full :) I have the CTMH medium case full and a couple of boxes that need a home yet. I do like the way you have them sorted-I see you go by color, so you sort them by color? How do you handle the other side? or did you decide what it would be already the side of choice. Thanks :)
