I love secrets! There’s something exciting about knowing something that others don’t! Combining my passion for scrapbooking and my enthusiasm for the unknown is something that appeals to me in more ways than one. Hiding something on a layout can be so much fun. It can be a way to disguise your journaling so that only the people you want to can read it or it can simply be a way to free up more space on your layout. I have found that the easiest way to hide elements in a layout is with pockets.
Pockets are everywhere right now. Some of the industries leading companies have manufactured pockets of every shape, size and color for you to use in the pages of your scrapbook. By thinking outside the box, you can come up with an endless amount of ways to use them in your layouts without spending an obscene amount of money! Here are a few ways for you to add a little mystery to your next page…
Pockets not only look great on the page, but they make your scrapbook pages interactive. Everyone will love seeing what you’ve hidden on your layouts…including you!
