Hey pocket style scrappers, check out this 12 x 12 Misc Me tutorial for some fabulous ideas!
I Love My Dog by Irene Tan
Hello everyone! Today, I'm sharing two pages from my 12 x 12 Misc Me album. This is an album which I've used to record pictures of Hiro growing up.
Here are some details on these pages.
There are a few emails from my blog readers asking how I get my Misc Me pages to look cohesive and the colors works together nicely. Therefore, for today's tutorial assignment, I will share some simple steps on how I normally create my Misc Me pages. So, here goes.
Step 1: 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.)
Step 2: Plan out the layout of this two pages by temporarily placing the 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)
Step 3: Plan on your layering for each pocket. I normally use the coordinating Noteworthy packs and the 6 x 6 paper pad for this step.
Step 4: When you're done with all the planning, it's time to start working on each pocket individually. First, I adhered the layering to each pocket. At this step, I will so some stamping on some of the pockets to add some details to them.
Step 5: Then, I used some gel pens to add more details on each pocket. At this stage, you could also use some washi tapes to add some colors to each pocket.
Step 6: Add some hand stitching to the some of the journal pieces. This will normally be my last step before I insert the photographs and my journal pieces into the clear pockets.
Step 7: Add dimensional embellishment on top of the clear pockets. This will be the time I normally add chipboard pieces, flowers, jewels, brads, buttons, ribbons or trinkets.
I hope with this simple tutorial, it will be super easy for you all to work on your next Misc Me pages!
