I had heard of Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love series over at Two Peas in a Bucket but have to admit that I hadn't paid much attention to it until I saw September's edition. What a fantastic idea for scrapping nine, yes nine, 4x6 photos on just one page!
The secret is in making a pocket on the page into which you can insert two double-sided cards of photos. Very ingenious idea, indeed. I knew this would be the perfect way for me to document my parents' recent 50th wedding anniversary while being able to include several of the photos we took that evening.
Here's how the page looks when it's all together:
I opted for using a Hambly overlay to make the pocket, as Shimelle did, because I really like the look of the photo cards peeking through from inside the pocket. I bought the transparency a couple of months ago with no particular plan for it and it turned out to be exactly what I needed for this project.
The front side of the photo cards look like this:
And when you turn them over you have more photos and journaling on the other side:
I absolutely loved this idea the minute I saw it. It's a great way to document an event where you have many photos but don't necessarily want to be doing multiple scrapbook pages. For all the details and to watch Shimelle's video on putting together a layout like this, just click here.
Until next time...
