Create Your Own Pocket Filler Cards

 Hello Everyone

I wanted to share some different ways that you can create your own filler cards to customize your layouts whether you create traditional scrapbook layouts or pocket-style layouts.  I created these 6 filler cards with stamps, dies and embossing folder.  For the colouring I used Copic Markers.  I used Lawn Fawn's 4x6 and 3x4 stitched journaling dies for all my cards on this layout.  I will be putting them in the Design F Project Life sheet protector as it's laid down on the last photo here.  Even though there are so many different filler cards out there I find that doing my own (and using up some of my supplies that I buy) just makes it that much more personalized and special.  My daughter who this layout is about when she turned 3 was very happy with what I had created and the time I put into it (this definitely does take some time).
 This 3x4 card was created using Lawn Fawn's 3x4 STITCHED JOURNALING CARD die, BIRTHDAY TAGS stamp set, INTO THE WOODS stamp set and dies, and YEAR FOUR stamp set and dies.
 This 3x4 card was created using Lawn Fawn's 3x4 STITCHED JOURNALING CARD die, STITCHED SCALLOP BORDERS, AMY TANGERINE'S PLUS ONE EMBROIDERY STENCIL KIT and THREAD KIT, RECOLLECTIONS ENAMEL DOTS.
 This 3x4 filler card was created using Lawn Fawn's 3x4 STITCHED JOURNALING CARD die, BIRTHDAY TAGS stamp set, COPIC MARKERS, and STAMPIN' UP! SMALL HEART PUNCH.
 This 3x4 card was created using Lawn Fawn's 3x4 STITCHED JOURNALING CARD die, AMY TANGERINE'S PLUS ONE CAMERA EMBOSSING FOLDER, RECOLLECTIONS ENAMEL DOTS and COPIC MARKERS.
 This 3x4 card was created using Lawn Fawn's 3x4 STITCHED JOURNALING CARD die, BIRTHDAY TAGS stamp set, TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS POCKET & PAGES FAB FRAMES die,  HERO ARTS/STUDIO CALICO's STEPPING STONE CLEAR ALPHABET set, RECOLLECTIONS ENAMEL DOTS and COPIC MARKERS.
And finally this 4x6 card was created using LAWN FAWN's LARGE STITCHED JOURNALING CARD dies, 3x4 STITCHED JOURNALING CARD die, TAG YOU'RE IT dies, BIRTHDAY TAGS stamp set, TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS POCKET & PAGES CIRCLE WORDS dies, RECOLLECTIONS PASTELS BRADS, and HERO ARTS MID-TONE INK PADS.  The 3x4 card was created using stamps and ink pads in three different colours (Bubble Gum, Mint Julip and Butter Bar) and can be used as a stand alone card as well.
Here is the finished layout.  Hope you have gotten inspired to create some of your own filler cards using these ideas.
thanks for stopping by and HAPPY SCRAPPIN'!
