Hi all and Merry Christmas! I am so happy to be here on this special day sharing part of my December project. Today I am bringing to you Days 11 through 14.
Day 11 was a classic four pocket spread. I filled the pockets with two photos, a card, and some gold sequins. On the left, for Day 13, I used two pockets. Everything, except for the white alpha stickers and sequins, are from the December Documented Kit.
For Days 13 and 14, I filled the back of the two pockets and then added a 6×8 traditional style layout. On Day 13 I decided to try out an idea for some hidden journaling. Here is a closeup:
If you look closely, you can see that the bottom of the star journaling card is sticking up-this is because I created a flip pocket. Basically, I cut down a piece of white cardstock to measure 3×8. After I scored it down the middle, I was able to fit the bottom half of the cardstock in the pocket and the top half hung over the pocket. After typing the story on the bottom half, I slipped it in the pocket, flipped the top half of the cardstock down, and adhered the 3×4 card to the top.
I really liked how this turned out. My only change will be to use a thinner piece of cardstock next time-I think this will make the fold less bulky and help it to lay flatter. Here’s a look at the right side:
Well I hope this post finds you all still moving right along in your albums. I have gotten a bit behind due to a weeks worth of sickness, but now that I am on the mend I am hoping to pick up some momentum! Wishing you a wonderful and merry day!
