12 Pocket Card Organizer Class kit Available by Mail

Class project: 12 pocket card organizer

Everyone really enjoyed class this week - the "12 Pocket Card Organizer".  We used 6 sheets of Stampin' Up! designer Series paper to make the 12 pockets, and used the white chipboard/cardboard that comes in the DSP package for the front and back covers.  Then the fun part... we used my Bind It All to bind all the pocket pages together!   Each pocket has a month of the year on it and you can use it to track birthdays and anniversaries of family and friends.  Then you tuck cards in the pockets when you find a perfect card for that person! 

I made the title on Photoshop, and everyone added it to their cover.

The calendar months can be found on splitcoast HERE.

For the pocket pages, score your 12x12 at 4" then FLIP IT and score it at 6".  Fold the 4" pocket up and then fold it in 1/2 at the 6" mark.  It is similar to this tutorial on SCS.

Thank you to Sandi L. for the idea!

These make great gifts... give the recipient a few cards to get them started! :)


Thank you to Tammy for asking about the coil size.. I meant to add that information and forgot!

As you can see by this photo:


The coil looks HUGE on the bound 12 pocket project (left), but when you get cards in the pockets (right), you can see why you use a large coil!  We used the 1" coils, but you could even use a larger one!!

What a great project!


Ooh! I love it. Though I don't have a BIA.
:( Guess I have to find an alternative. Any suggestions? Maybe some loose leaf binder rings?



This looks amazing !!! TFS !


Awesome project. Did you use the cardboard from the back of PP on each page? Simply beautiful.

I loved this project! I can't wait to make one for end of the year teacher gifts!

I did tag you -- you're one of the blogs I enjoy reading the most!


WOWIE ZOWIE! You are SO creative!! First, I want to know where you live so I can come "play" with you. Second, I want to know where you live because spring has arrived there and we're expecting ANOTHER snow storm tomorrow night in the Madison area of Wisconsin! UGH! Thanks so much for sharing your AWESOME ideas!


Love your new banner picture, I know spring will come to Illinois soon! Thanks for sharing such an awesome project.


Patty - I have made these before and my only question is in each pocket - how many cards can you fit? I found the pockets were tight. When you fold up the the 4" piece to form the pocket there is really not a lot of space for cards. Two max. Did you find that or is there a way to make the pocket bigger?

Thanks for your pictures - the all look great.

This project looks wonderful! I am actually looking to make a binder that with pockets to hold magazine clippings and different crafting ideas so I am hoping to apply some of the same ideas you used here to my project. How did you cover the chipboard covers?

Thank you!


That is the neatest thing ever! I love all the different looks that you have.
