May I ask some really dingy questions?
Question 1: I have seen, and put into my favorites, so many beautiful pocket cards and really want to try to make them.... but.... I have no idea what you all put in them. On the CS that you pull out I mean? Does anyone have any ideas?

Question 2: I have recently refilled my Basic Black ink pad with a new refill bottle of Basic Black and when I clean my stamps off, or blow bubbles with the refill ink, it looks purple. Is anyone else experiencing this?

I have an answer for question 1 not 3 though. I like to use the wonderful words set with In full Bloom. YOu can stamp smile and place a bud on both ends of the word. YOu can also do some journaling. I just got my Tags and pockets today and am ready to play with them. Good luck! :D

I've only made two of the pocket cards, one for a birthday and one for a baby. I just put a little verse on there that I got off twopeasinabucket.com (my favorite site for cute verses.) I'm trying to attach a link to my card here so you can see what I mean. Underneath the verse I just sign my name like I would on the inside of a card.

Hope this is what you are looking for.

Yes, that's it exactly. The journaling - would that be on a scarpbook page? I'm not sure what you mean there? I will have to check out that," twopeasinabucket.com (my favorite site for cute verses.) " It sounds great! Thanks! Are there any other ideas? This sounds fun... Hehehe...

I made a BBQ invitation and put all the details on the inside piece that slides out.

I've noticed that lots of things black will look purple when diluted, not just ink. Is it discolored when stamping? If you don't think the color is right you should contact your demo ASAP and see about getting a replacement. SU has rules on how long you can wait before returning something (I think), you demo should be able to help.

The pocket could also be used to hold a gift card, bookmark, packet of seeds, bubblebath, or something like a Yankee Candle car freshener. Those are just a few ideas, but I'm sure there are more.

My pocket card to my granddaughter just had the tag with a message and money tucked in.
As to my black stamp pad, it has always had a purple shade of color to it. When I clean it off on a wet wipe it is dark purple but the ink stamps black. Very strange! I haven't had to refill it yet, so I haven't checked the reinker that I also bought.

I used "A Little Love" to make my pocket card and simply cut out three windows so that the little pics could be seen. The words hide below the pictures so that when you pull the tag out, you can see the message. I think I CASEd it from the new catty. Here's a link to the pics in my gallery (one of what the card looks like when you receive it, and what it looks like once you pull the tag):
