Workshops Your Way® Sweet Girl Scrapbooking Kit
4 — cardstock sheets (2 Ballerina, 1 Heather, 1 White Daisy)
This is the pack we were given at our 2019 Convention in March so I got to play with it there. We were given a set of instructions and I made my pages almost to the instructions. But I cut out the inside of the papers to save some (as it was new to me and I didn't have my orders arriving yet so wanted to make the new paper last as long as possible).
Then I laid out the photos I wanted to put on the pages and I had WAY too many photos to put onto the page. Come in my favourite addition to page making the humble 4x6 flip flap. These come in both vertical and horizontal within the pack (see here to open link to what I'm talking about Flip Flaps™ Memory Protectors™ 4" × 6"). They also come in a variety of other sizes = 3x4, 5x7, 2x2, 3x3, 4x4 and 6x12.
Flip flaps get put onto the page protector so they have to be placed once the page is inside the protector. I prefer the Memory Protectors™ Side Loading sleeves. Usually I photograph my pages without the memory protectors as having them on does make it very hard to photograph flip flaps with reflections and such. I haven't done a great job below as its hard to hold the page open, not get reflection off the covers and show the display. I've done the best I could without showing a video.
This photo below is showing how I laid out the photos stacked on top of each other.
The photo Below this is how the finished page looks when its in the page protectors and flip flaps. Obviously the top photos are the best photos and the additional photos are underneath. I could have cropped the photos but its a scenic mountain we visited in Queensland so I didn't want to crop too much or I would have lost the grandeur of the scenery. But the photos weren't that great so I was happy to hide them as my family are the central theme of the photos.
The below photo is taken with the flip flaps open. You can't see all the pictures I have on this layout because one flip flap is covering another but its just for the general idea. 8 photos in total fit on this page.

The below photo is the left hand side page with the favourite photos on top with a vertical and horizontal flip flap. this shows 7 photos on this page.
Really happy with how these turned out. While the paper is sort of girly and babyish, travel and holiday photos also suited quite well this gorgeous soft paper pack. I really enjoyed working with Sweet Girl and will miss it when its gone. Get your hands on it quickly because we only have a limited time with it. The complements and titles are my favourite.
NB: When we got this paper pack at convention the White Alphabet Foam Stickers lettering wasn't available so I haven't got back to putting a title on it yet. I can't wait to get hold of that white foam lettering because I've seen the fabulous titles made with them. See below for a few artworks from Close to My Heart showing the cool title stickers.
Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project ideas. I'm really interested to hear what you think about them, so I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop on our Australasian Blog Hop which is
