Tips & Tricks. Ideas & Inspiration. Resources for Scrapbookers.
Thanks again to all of you who voted for me and helped me make it to the second round of the Stylin’ Idol challenge at Scrapbook Lifestyle!
I have completed my layout for the next challenge, so if you’d like to vote for me (*wink*) for the next round, ~Click Here~ and vote for “Jessica Gordon – Our Wedding Party.” The challenge was to 1) create a one or two page layout using at least four photos, 2) be creative and 3) see how many photos we could fit on a page. Here is my entry:
Credits Patterned papers by Anna Griffin; cardstock by Canson, Old Olive ink by Stampin’ Up; monogram stickers by Creative Memories; metal accents by K and Company, page pebbles by Making Memories; Font: Beautiful ES; other: ribbon and double-sided patterned cardstock.
Tips and Tricks:
Technique: Create mini accordion albums for extra photos and journaling
If you enjoy hidden journaling, you will want to try this easy and fun method for adding extra surface area to your page.
To make my mini albums, I simply used double-sided patterned cardstock cut into 2×6 inch strips. I used the scoring tool that fits on my paper trimmer to add vertical creases every 1.5 inches along the strip, then I fan-folded the paper strip at each crease (3 folds creating 4 panels). I attached a piece of ribbon to the back of the last panel and adhered the panel to the page. When the mini album is open to the left, 4 panels are showing and 3 are showing when it is open to the right – plenty of little spots for extra photos, journaling and embellishments! The ribbon holds the album in place when it is closed. I think another neat way to keep the mini albums closed would be to use photo turns. Also try experimenting with different sizes and shapes!
