I was lucky enough during my late twenties and thirties to be able to travel a lot, it was during this time that I learnt how to use an SLR camera. The camera was a film one and until the films were developed you never knew if you'd got that perfect shot. I have spent quite a lot of time scanning these pictures so that I now have a digital version.
I have for a long time wanted to make a page that would include some of my favourite pictures all together, but there were so many it was difficult.
This year Heidi Swapp has released a new idea and product using file folders to make more interactive pages. I was a bit sceptical at first but it did inspire me to have a go at making my own. I'm really not sure about the file box, this one will go into my scrapbook as normal. As the front and back pages are not interactive, I will split a page protector along the side and bottom and sew it to the page. Here it is
the inside page
the double layout with the extra page in the middle, this has been machine stitched in the middle and then stuck together so it is a flap
two of these are mini books on this page, the first is a flip up book
the other side of the flap
and another mini book, I have to think of a way of holding this one together so it doesn't unfold each time you open the page.
inside the back cover
and the outside back page
I have really enjoyed making this, its a great way of recording an event all on one page, or a large number of photos, this one has 46 photos on it.
