The album is also a great size to display on a shelf or coffee table or to carry in your bag to share with friends.

We R Memory Keepers Denim Blues

Today's project:  Photo Card Tutorial
Created for:  We R Memory Keepers 

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a tip for adding lots of photos to a 12x12 page.  I use this technique in my mini album kits and custom scrapbook pages all the time.  When a client requests a custom album they often want more photos on a 12x12 page than will traditionally “fit”.  My solution?  Cards that flip-up or fold-out to reveal additional photos. 

First, I create my 12x12 base page.  For this layout I used the new Denim Blues paper by We R Memory Keepers.  Once I had the base and overall design, I looked at the photos to consider size.  Could several photos be cropped to 3x4? 4x4? another size? 

The key to adding lots of photos is a flip-card that will hold three photos…one on the front, and two inside the card.

For my first card, the photo is 4x4.  The We R Memory Instagram overlay frame is 4x4, so I chose to make my flip-up card 4.25” x 4.25”.  My base card stock needs to be 4.25” x 8.50”, with a score line at 4.25”.

For this layout I have two 4.25x4.25” cards and one 4.25x6.25” card.  In order for me to be able to open the cards from the outside of my plastic page protector, I used a craft knife to create a slit in the plastic.  I slid the page into my We R Memory Keepers Page protector and laid the photo cards down on top of the plastic.  Then I gently cut slits in the plastic along each of the card’s fold lines.  

I added adhesive to the back of each card and slipped the backs through the slits so that the card now opens from outside of the page protector.

Thanks for letting me share this fun way to get lots of photos on a page!  Here are some links to the supplies I used.

12x12 Happy Moments Layout

Hello everyone! It's my turn over on the We R Memory Keepers blog today and I'm sharing a sweet layout of my niece and her Papa and Meme. This 12x12 page features the beautiful We R's, Inked Rose collection and one of their awesome punch boards. Can you guess which one?  

Yep ... it's the Flower punch board! I wanted lots of dimension on this layout, so I used the petal curler that’s included in the board to bend my petals. I layered the 3” and 4” sizes and then added a yellow brad to the center.

I left the flower in the upper left corner flat and added a brad to the center of this one too.  So whether you want a more dimensional look, or a flat embellishment, the Flower Punch Board can help you make fabulous flowers to spruce up your scrapbook pages!

I’d love to see how you're using this technique on your page layouts. Share your pictures with me on social media. Thanks for stopping by today!
