NEW Kits from Paisley's and Polka Dots!

Hi everyone, it’s Julie with Paisleys and Polka Dots, stopping by to share with you a few of our latest kits.  First, is a mini album featuring the Anchored collection.  This nautical themed mini album has so many possibilities for capturing your favorite photos; a day at the beach, sailing, a cruise, or possibly a nautical themed baby shower or wedding. 




This next mini album features a collection that I personally have been waiting for, for a very long time.  Accomplished is the absolute perfect collection for graduation, retirement, or any accomplishment you may want to remember for years to come.  I love the black and kraft color palette as I can add in any color and it will still compliment my photos for a classic look. 




Mini albums are so much fun to create.  They are wonderful for quick projects and great for gift giving.  Our customers love our kits, they are pre cut, and easy to assemble.  But, there is one comment I hear from customers…they would like to add more photos to their albums.  Well, I’m here today to show you a really fun and easy way to add more photos into any mini album using pocket pages.  Yep!  You know those project life pages…the big ones, the small ones, the ones with tons of squares on them?  I must say, I can’t take credit for this one.  My friend came up with the idea and I thought it was so clever.  She adds tons of photos using this technique. 









Choose a pocket page to work with.  For these few pages I’m showing you, I have chosen to work with 6x9 pocket pages with multiple size pockets on the page.  (fig 1) Trim the pockets from the pocket page that you will want to use making sure your finished page size will fit into your album.  Don’t worry about the existing hole placement but you will want to include the spine when trimming down your page.  I am using a 4x6 pocket and a pocket page with multiple sizes; three 2x2 pockets, and two 3x4 pockets.  (fig 2)  Design your pocket page and insert your photos.  Next, you will need to create a new spine.  Cut a piece of paper the length of your pocket page and double the width of the spine.  Score the paper down the center and fold it in half.  Glue the paper to the spine of the pocket page.  (fig 5)  Using a page from the mini album, mark the new hole placement on the spine of the pocket page.  Punch the holes in the pocket page using a cropadile or a hole punch.  (fig 6) It’s that easy!!!  You can add more photos to your mini albums in just minutes!!  Clever right??

  22. Love the pocket pages. I don't do a lot of scrapbooking because I get tired of filling pages with bling. The pocket pages make it so much easier to get a decent page without all of the stress. The nautical theme is wonderful. The neutral colored pages were great too.
