Tip #2 You don't need to use every photo
That's right! Instead, narrow it down to a few of your favorites and focus on the best moments of that event.
Digital devices makes it so easy to take LOTS of photos with our phones. We want to make sure we get the right shot or save all the memories. This causes us to feel overwhelmed when we look back. Even I posted seven photos of my most recent event, White Christmas, last week and that doesn't include the photos I am waiting to receive from a friend.
So, when you weed them out and you still have more photos than you feel like fits on a page, what do you do? Close to My Heart has a solution for that called Pocket Plus and Flip Flaps. These products allow you to add extra photos that don't "fit" on the page yet you want to include.
Here's an example of how you can use Pocket Plus.
Here is the same layout but in the center, you can see the Pocket Plus pages that allow you to add more photos AND journalling. The cut apart cards included in the CTMH paper packets can be used to fill any "holes" that you don't have photos for and they help to continue the theme as well as give your eye a place to rest.
Pocket Plus fit right into the binding of your scrapbook whether post bound or 3 ring, are the same sturdy weight as your page protector, and have easy slide in openings.
