Tutorial Tuesday

general Nerd Academy Tips & Tutorials

Step by Step paper crafting projects

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.
