 Pocket card project life mix match

Are you getting the MOST out of your ‘Hello’ Pocket Card Collections?

Check this out: This collection of cards come from FOUR different Hello Collections.

Yes, FOUR!

When I started designing these monthly last year my goal was to make sure you’d get a ton of use out of each one individually but also as a whole. So I quickly went through my stash and pulled some cards from 4 different collections and believe me there were MANY more I could have included, but I just wanted to show you a quick demo of how well they all go together. Don’t be afraid to pull those cards out of their folders and let them mix and mingle with their friends in other collections.

You can really create your own collections. Plus don’t forget the neutral extras and daily stamps included that can easily be used with any past or future set. So don’t feel limited to stick to using ONLY the items included in each set. That’s the fun of it – you don’t have to.’


Hello Change Collection
CARDS # 4, 10, 19, 23, 24

Hello Love Collection
CARDS # 8, 10, 11 ,13, 15 

Hello Growth Collection
CARDS # 3, 5, 15, 20, 22 

Hello Giggles Collection
CARDS # 1 ,2 ,6, 7 ,9, 12, 14, 17, 18, 21

As shown a lot of the cards easily coordinate without any recoloring but on occasion you might have to do a little tweaking. Sometimes the colours might be slightly off – usually the base white. Some collections have a creamier white than others and when you put them together they might be a little off  – what’s a scrapper to do?

Here’s a quick fix:

How to recolor pocket cards project life cards

You can see in the ‘before’ the doilie card has a lot more yellow than the journal card beside it. This will bother the perfectionist in me until the end of time so a quick nudge of the white balance solves that problem and gives me a much cooler and brighter white in the ‘after’. Ahhh cololr harmony.

Here’s how I did it in Photoshop:

Recolor white balance digital scrapbook template pocket card 01

First, have the card you are altering open (as not shown above). It helps to have your card plus something you’re trying to match it to open so you can see both as you’re making changes. Make sure the one you want to alter is selected (click on it to make sure that window is active) before you continue.

Recolor white balance digital scrapbook template pocket card 02

You can see results in real time so play with the slides until it looks good. Choosing WHITES means you are altering just the white balance but it will naturally effect the rest of the card as well. I pulled down the yellow and added a bit of cyan and now it looks good. Click OK.

DONE! If you want to save it be sure to save it under a different file name so you don’t overwrite the original that matches with the kit it came from.

Hope that helps you get more out of your cards :)

Happy Scrapping,

This year I decided to forego the usual orange/yellow/brown fall color scheme and opted for wild bursts of color! I’m loving the bright and bold look of these pages. Here’s a look at some of the pages the team has crafted up. I can’t WAIT to see what you create!
