I'm Paula, an avid scrapbooker with 2 nearly grown sons. I have been scrapping for about 17 years & decided that I would like to share my love & talents for it with others. I created 'Precious Pages by Paula' to do exactly that. There is a line of pre-designed scrapbooks & frames, as well as doing custom one-of-a-kind albums with your photos. Cards are prayerfully made in the hopes of carrying special blessings to their recipients.

MESSAGE IN THE POCKET!
I just loved the colors over at the Play Date Cafe this week. I had some great Distress Inks in those shades so I started by inking my cardstock with all three colors. I then used a background stamp on top to give it some interest. I wasn't sure what to do next when in my pile of scraps on my desk I spotted this great little pink pocket shaped polka dot paper. It was the perfect size to fit a tag into and the perfect size for the card so I decided to make a pocket card with the sentiment in the pocket and the inside of the card blank for a personal note.
Here are the colors I had to work with:
And here is the outside of the card:
For the tag insert I used a manilla shipping tag which I inked with the Yellow Lemonade Distress Ink. Then I took my favorite Crafters Workshop template and the Persimmon Distress ink and made a pattern. Last I stamped my sentiment which was the quote
Life is measured in moments
Live every moment
Laugh every day
Love without regrets
I followed that up with Happy Birthday! added some ribbon and the insert was complete. Here it is:
I was also excited about the idea of a pocket because there is a fun challenge over at Colorful Creations for a pocket so I will be entering it there too!
Hope you have enjoyed viewing my latest card creation!
