After my first tutorial on Shimelle’s blog I received a couple requests on how I altered the different size pocket pages from that album so they could all be used together. So today I’m here to share my “how to” with you all. There are two videos. The first is where I show my tutorial for the custom pocket pages, and then part two is where I assemble a fun holiday mini book incorporating them into my design. Here are the supplies and videos:
Something to note is that even though I use 3×4 pocket pages in my example to be used with an Instagram Album, the customizing of the pocket pages can be used in most any size project. I’ve used it in 6×8 albums, a 4×6 mini book, a 5×7 travel journal, as well as my Project Life.
One of the things I love about this project is that Shimelle’s beautiful papers and embellishments were so easy to mix with my Christmas product! I was really wanting to make a holiday themed album that wouldn’t interfere with my December Daily, and this ended up being the perfect solution : )
Below are some photos of the mini book I decided to make where I document 5 of my Christmastime favorites from this year. It was important to me to jot down some notes about the simple things that seem to make this time of year special. Hope you enjoy!!
