When you open the flip flaps on page 1, voila - you have another complete layout (above).
Here on the right is page 2 with both of the flip flaps open (they open on the top and bottom, whereas page one's flip flaps open like a book). As you can see, another complete layout! Love it.

In the past, my albums were filled mostly with 4 x 6 prints. After finishing this layout, the lightbulb went on... many photos look great in a smaller or larger format. My methods are about to change!
Another limiting belief I've held for years: you must scrapbook ALL of your photos... When I started this hobby, I asked my mentor: "What do you do with the photos you don't scrapbook?" She looked at me with this blank look on her face and said, "Well, I scrapbook everything!" So, for years, I tried to scrapbook everything too, only to fall seriously behind and have this sense of urgency hanging over my head, thinking I HAD to get caught up! Well, I read a lot of scrapbooking magazines and blogs and something in someone's article made ANOTHER light bulb go on... scrapbooking is supposed to be fun, not a chore!
From now on, I endeavour to scrapbook photos of varying sizes, and create only layouts I love! A fellow consultant, Carla from Calgary, uses photo storage pages for photos she wants to keep, but not necessarily create layouts with. What a great idea Carla, thanks!
Have you had any 'AHA' moments that you've had about scrapbooking? I'd love to hear them!
Next post in a day or two!
