In today's post, we are going off the page with flip-ups, layers, and pockets galore!
Natasha shares three ways to get off the memory-keeping page.
"For today‚Äôs project, I am showing a few ways you can take your layouts to the next level by designing ‚Äúoff the page.‚Äù I really enjoy incorporating flip-ups in my projects to add hidden journaling. Personally, I prefer to have no to minimal visible journaling with Traveler‚Äôs Notebook style layouts so flip-ups are a great way to still include my journaling. I thought for the longest time that flip-ups were complicated to create but actually, they are very easy!
I created a simple hinge by folding a piece of trimmed paper in half and adhering one side to the journal card in the pocket and the other side to the journal card that is flipping up, hanging outside of the pocket page to be able to access. So simple and I think so cute, especially when there are so many cute journal cards to choose from.
To take the ‚Äúoff the page‚Äù concept in another direction, I included many puffy stickers from the Afternoon Tea Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit. I have them scattered throughout both sides of my layout to have that dimensional element balanced.
Lastly, one of the more subtle ways I‚Äôve added this concept into my layout is by using stamping as a ‚Äúlayer‚Äù on top of patterned papers on the left-hand side of my layout. By using the frame stamp from the Afternoon Tea Travelers Notebook Memory Keeping Kit, I added more visual interest and depth to the page. Each technique is great as a stand-alone design feature or combined as I did here to mix and match."
