I'd been chatting to Sarah about divided page protectors and as I had some in my stash, I decided to use one for this project. They are great as they give you plenty of room to tell the story, add your photos and still have space for twiddly bits.
I used both sides to share pictures of Louis on his 6th birthday this year when he got a guitar for the Wii and Lego Rock Band. The journalling records how loud the house was that day with Bella on the new microphone too.
Having the multiple small spaces means that you treat each pocket as an individual layout and it is not so overwhelming as a blank 12x12 sheet. You can also try out lots of different embellishment styles on the same page.
I used My Mind's Eye papers, Thickers, buttons, twine and stickers etc, from my stash.
I used Glossy Accents to pick out the detailing on the picture in the journalling block and this matched the really old epoxy stickers that I used to high light some of the circles on the designs.
I used Black Soot Distress Crackle paint on some chipboard pieces too. It gives a great texture and it's a great way to cover up a design you don't like when you want to use the shape.
