"Pocket Power!" Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Technique Blog Hop where we use Close To My Heart products to create artwork centered around the theme of "Pocket Power"! Participants can choose to interpret that theme however they see fit and I'm sure we'll see a variety of interpretations! 

If you are coming from Tamara's Blog, you're on the right track. You'll find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post. 

Using the "Craft On" Scrapbooking Workshop Your Way, I created this third layout as designed in the workshop. But...

I did make a slight adjustment on the right side of the page. I moved the items slightly to the right and sliced down the middle, at 6" - after I assembled the layout. That allows me to do so where it didn't impact the page design. THEN, I placed each 6" x 12" piece inside one of our Flip Flaps and made it interactive by sticking them up to of a standard 12" x 12" page protector. Keep reading...

When I open each flip flap - like doors - this is what is exposed; two 6" x 12" panels and a 12" x 12" page. Isn't that awesome?! I can include more photos, journaling and whatever else I desire. 

Flip Flaps help extend the space in your scrapbooks without feeling you have to do extra "work" to add additional memories or to save memoriabilia items. We have a variety of Flip Flaps to choose from with each offering a different element to your pages. 

This shows you how the Flip Flap works to showcase all that has been shared above. Do you love it?! 

I will be offering this as a virtual class in July. It will be shared on my VIP group. If you don't currently have a Consultant, contact me for additional information. 
These are the fabulous products that come in the Workshop Your Way kit!

  5. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this...and I guess I missed this layout on the WYW...or it didn't appeal to me until I saw yours!
