Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop. Ã‚Â If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Darlys Recker.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Happy Times Paper Packet, Happy Times Stamp Set, Inks (Crystal Blue, Canary), Crystal BlueÃ‚Â Cardstock, Noted Stamp Set, Memory Protector Flip Flaps, Scallop Border Punch, White & Gold Ribbon, and Gold Sequins Assortment.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think “interactive pages” is Flip Flaps. Ã‚Â They are such a great way to expand your pages when you have lots of pictures that you want to display. Ã‚Â The 4×6 Flip Flaps are the easiest to use because you can simply layer them on top of a 4×6 photo. Ã‚Â On this layout I have used some of the larger Flip Flaps to give you some ideas on how to use them. Ã‚Â When designing a page using these larger flaps, I create my top layer first. Ã‚Â I also noted photos that I would use inside the flaps and set aside for later. Ã‚Â I kept these sections in mind so that I wouldn’t overlap on these areas. Ã‚Â Once my “top” layout was complete (what you see in the picture above), I added the other sections that would be inside the flaps. Ã‚Â I attachedÃ‚Â all the bases/papers and photos first, then finished off with embellishing.
Tip: To add Flip Flaps to your page, fold the adhesive strip towards the opening of the flip flap and use a Bone Folder to set the crease. Ã‚Â Remove the adhesive strip and attach to the top of your page protector. Ã‚Â Make sure that if you are doing a two-page layout that you have your pages positioned correctly in the page protectors.
