It’s Tuesday, once again, and time for another Tutorial Tuesday here at the Scrapbook Nerd Academy.
The Scrapbook Nerd Design Team has been playing with the Simple Stories Sn@p Sets all month. This week, I’m sharing what I’ve created using the Simple Stories Sn@p Travel Set.
I have a lot of travel photos and I’m so behind on them. I’m not a pocket page scrapbooker and prefer to work on more traditional pages. However, I love that the pocket pages, along with the Sn@p Products, make pages so quick. So, I’ve been combining my traditional page with the pocket page for my two-page travel layouts. I feel that it gives me the best of both worlds – I can get creative with a single page layout, but then get all the additional photos into my books.
My tutorial is how to make that work for you.
The first thing I do is focus on my first page. This page I created quickly, using the Sn@ap 3×4 cards. I simply positioned them in a block fashion on my page. This will become the background for my photos.
Once that was done I added my title.
Then I quickly embellished the page using the Sn@p Travel Set. I used some of the images on the cards, which I simply cut out, as well as some of the die cuts and the stickers. It was very fast and very simple.
Then I went to the pocket page. I chose a pocket page that had 6 4×6 slots as that best suited my photos. Using the 4×6 Sn@p Cards from the Travel Set, I cropped my photos enough to keep some of the cards showing as I wanted my page to have lots of colour on it. Two of the photos I cut smaller so that I could use one of them for my journaling, and the other so as to reveal the image.
Then I just slipped them into the pockets. Once they are in the pockets, I like to add a few embellishments on the outside, just to help tie it into the first page, and to make it more “touchable.”
That is my process on how I combine regular pages, and pockets together to allow me to quickly, and easily, get my pages done.
