Heartfelt Creation’s Festive Holly Flip and Fold Album

Christmas is one of my favorite time of the year and Heartfelt Creations Festive Holly Collection just beautiful.  I fell in love with it and used it to create my first Flip and Fold album. I picked 2 sets of inserts and studied the paper carefully until it spoke to me. This is the first pages with a pocket to hold cards or photos. There is another similar pocket on the back pages.

This is the cover with a fold down pocket. I cut the side flaps off of the pocket and closed it with a small velcro dot. I added  ribbon to keep the album closed once it is filled with Christmas memories.

Throughout the album I tried to utilize the scenes on the 12X12 papers. Here the forest scene opens up to additional space for photos along with a pocket in the flap.

Another set of pages with a flap the lifts up with space for memories on both sides.

Additional tiered pockets for journaling cards and photos.

I am looking ahead to my next album.


Holidays Layouts

Easter Egg Hunt Layout


Hello everyone. Today I am sharing an Easter layout using CutCardStock Curious Metallics. My layouts are usually done as two 8.5″ x 11″ pages. When I started the scrapbook for my daughter this was the size available. (As you can see by the date, I am a little behind.)


I started with 2 sheets of Curious Metallics in Cryogen White. I wanted to to add a splash of color, so I used the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer and Distress Markers.

Next, I used We R Memory Keepers Hello Darlings 6×6 Paper for some background mats. I matted the larger picture with Curious Metallic in Violette and pink from the Core’dinations Adhesive Back Card Stock in Carnival.

I used my Sizzix eClips 2 to cut the title for my page from the Core’dinations Adhesive Back Card Stock. You can see how detailed I was able to cut the words.


The Core’dinations Adhesive Back Card Stock made it easy to apply the words to the page.

Then I added several Easter Eggs cut from Curious Metallics (Violette, Mandarin, and Lime) and Core’dinations Adhesive Back Card Stock. I matted some smaller pictures on the eggs. The large egg is hiding my journaling.
