After a number of request via emails, I've decided to share a very simple step by step tutorial on how I normally create my Misc Me pages.
Today's Misc Me pages is a treat for all of you who love and miss Hiro pictures here on my blog. It features Hiro's puppy pictures and BoBunny's Happy Tails collection. This collection is a perfect match for all dogs and cats lovers.
I've decided to document some pictures of Hiro growing up since I first got him at about 8 weeks old.
And here are some details.
So are you ready for this simple tutorial? Let's go.
Choose the pocket design for your pages. There are many designs to choose from BoBunny's 12 x 12 Misc Me Page Protector Variety Pack. (Note: When choosing the design, do take into consideration the number of photographs and their sizes that you wish to display on this two pages.)
Plan out the layout of this two pages by temporarily placing your photographs and your chosen journal pieces on top of the pockets. I love to use BoBunny's beautiful journal packs and journal box set for my journal pieces. (Note: Make sure the pages look cohesive and you are satisfied with the color combination at this step.)
Plan on your layering for each pocket. I normally use the coordinating Noteworthy packs and the 6 x 6 paper pad for this step.
When you are done with all the planning, it's time to start working on each pocket individually. First I adhere the layering for each pocket. At this step, I will do some stamping on some of the pockets to add details to them.
Then, I will use gel pens to add more details to each pocket.At this stage, you could also use some washi tapes to add colors to them.
Add some hand stitching to some of the pocket pages. This will normally be my last step before I insert my photographs or journal pieces into the clear pockets.
Add dimensional embellishment on top of the clear pockets. I normally add chipboard pieces, flowers, jewels brads, buttons, ribbons or trinkets.
And there you have it! Isn't it simple? Next time, when you are at a lost on Misc Me pages, why not try following this simple 7 steps. You will find it so much easier and faster in getting your pages done. Happy scrapping!
