Tips / Instructions

Make pockets on your pages, this way you can add lots more photos and journalling. Simple add with foam tape so you can add without bulk.

Mini albums are a great way to use up left overs, I used what I had left from making my two layout. Adding torn paper strips is a great way to add texture and layers to a page.

Add some machine stitching to elements, you really don’t have to an expert, just go slow!

Another great way to add more space for photos is add a paper waterfall. All you have to do is make sure your width is the same for every paper strip, make each one slightly larger in length (to create the waterfall effect) and then score each paper piece at the top, a 1/4 of an inch and glue together.

Tags are always fab in an album, you can add photos or journalling.

To add visual interest add some of your elements with foam tape (otherwise your pages will look ‘flat’), use wet glue to only secure such elements as butterflies so they appear to be 3D, only add double sided tape to the centre of tags to avoid them look flat, add a photo over a frame element (I have added the wooden frame from the kit on one of the pages of the waterfall) instead of in it for extra visual interest.
