We had so much fun creating our very first special issue that’s all about photo pocket scrapbooking! And because this handy approach is opening up memory-keeping to more and more people, I can imagine that product stashes are growing by leaps and bounds as well. There are systems, kits, page packs, Smash Books, Brag Books, DIY journaling cards, and countless other options for fun and creative combinations of photos, details, and designs.

I can also imagine that there are more than a few currently unused yet adorable journaling cards floating around craft rooms and creative spaces everywhere, awaiting their turn in the spotlight but getting moved aside in favor of something else for the moment.

What to do with those extras? Hmmmm. Maybe a card…or a tag…or even home decor. Yes!

Bouncing Baby Boy Banner by Heather Campbell

Now really – how cute and easy is this banner? Our Go-to Gal Heather Campbell used a few baby boy-themed journaling cards, a bit of baker’s twine, and some teeny clothespins to make this adorable banner that’s perfect for a shower or warm welcome home from the hospital. Take this idea and multiply it with creativity – a holiday-themed banner, a back-to-school wish, a birthday celebration, or even a quick message to tell someone they’re loved in a very special way. The possibilities are limitless.

How about putting your favorites on display where you can see them every day? This special piece of artwork was made using journaling cards and a little bit of embellishing. See the stitching on the #6 card? The gold stars on the #7 card? Nice touches! And by mounting the cards with foam tape, each card stands out as the individual design element it should be.

But don’t stop here…think about mini note pads, gift card holders, and even candle sleeves. This issue has ideas that go beyond scrapbook pages and albums, so you won’t want to miss it.

    Love the cute ideas for other uses. I would use them for one of the gift books I am making… Working on FOUR full size first year of marriage books and one baby book. I might actually use some as wedding decor… Either candle sleeves or banner of best wishes at one of the weddings. Great ideas for thought. Thanks.
