Purposeful Plastic - CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop where we are using Close To My Heart products to highlight the theme, "Purposeful Plastic". Participants can use our various pocket pages, Flip Flaps, or any other creative incorporation of plastic we offer. LOL I'm excited to see what they have come up with to share with you!

If you are coming from Vandra's Blog, you are on the right track. You can continue the hop by clicking on the links provided in each post. Should you get lost along the way, there is a list of participants below.

The artwork I have to share with you today is pretty straight forward. I incorporated some of our 4" x 4" Flip Flaps into this Story Starter Album by Stacy Julian. (Some of the photos aren't the best because of the glare. Please forgive me and overlook that.)

If you aren't familiar with Flip Flaps, they are self-adhesive, interactive plastic pieces that can be attached to your artwork. They come in various sizes and can be used to include additional photos, journaling, etc. With this photo above, you can see how it is slightly open.

When it is fully open, I am able to include another photo on the back side of the Flip Flap, allowing space in this album other than just the obvious. Cool, huh?

I actually have finished this album - well, almost. I need to get some photos reprinted since my Selphy printer chopped off people on the sides and I wanted a couple of more that I didn't have. I will get it finished soon and share all of the pages.

You can view this video to see how Flip Flaps work interactively.

Before you head over to Michelle's Blog, consider leaving a comment. I always love to read what you have to share!

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy hoppin'!
