Valentine Pocket Page Book – Flashback

I made this Valentine Pocket Page book a few years ago and thought I would share it again in honor of Valentine’s Day. I had designed this Sizzix Pocket Page and Tag die and was so excited since it was one of my first die designs for the company. Now, years later, I still love this die and use it often.

page0The fun thing about this die is that it creates two pages {front and back} plus a tag from a single sheet of two-sided 12″x12″ cardstock. The fold creates the pocket and you can use ring binders to hold the pages together. I also designed the holes to be able to fit two rings of a 3-ring binder. That means you can add these mini-pocket pages into a 3-ring binder for added embellishing.

page1Here are the first two pages. I used a rub-on for the word “Love”. On the right page I die cut a swirl using the Elegant Flourishes die and the flower using the Tattered Florals die. I also used a thrifted button for the center of the flower.

page2On the left page I die cut the small butterfly using the Mini Butterfly die. I also used a Textured Impressions embossing folder on the tag. On the right page I used a circle piece that I believe is by Jenni Bowlin.

page3I die cut a Paper Rosette on the left page and embellished it with ribbon and another thrifted button.  The page on the right includes a real vintage key and a heart that I formed out of soft red craft wire.

page4The left page is embellished with a piece of thrifted lace and button plus a die cut Mini Heart. The right page has more lace, swirls and flowers. I believe the “Wishes” card is by 7Gypsies.

page5More lace, buttons and a vintage Bingo number 14.

Page6The back page has a Flower 3-D die cut. I added a little bling and ribbon on several pages as well.

Here is a quick visual to show how simple it is to create endless pocket pages using this die.

StepoutsImage 1 shows the prettiest side of the paper after it is die cut. The bottom third will be the front of the pocket so that will be embellished. Image 2 shows the reverse side. Since only the top part would show once the pocket is folded, I used some Distress ink to add color. Image 3 shows the pocket folded up. You can see the inked color at the top and the embellished pocket at the bottom. Image 4 shows the tags placed inside the pockets. When the page is folded and binder rings inserted, the tags are held in the pocket.

I hope you enjoyed this easy Valentine Pocket Page booklet. This is the same die that I used for my Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show Mini Album. It is so versatile and simple.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
