add hidden photos and journaling to your scrapbook page

We recently took a family trip to Southern Utah to do some hiking and river rafting and I wanted to capture our memories on a single scrapbook page. So I decided to use the rolodex card die from the Echo Park Paper Tab DieSet, along with the "The Story Of Our Family" collection, to create some interactive flaps on my scrapbook layout for housing some additional photos and journaling.





I created one rolodex card flap for each day of our trip, and included a small photo and some computer generated journaling strips inside. To keep the flaps from being too bulky I added a single sticker on the inside as an accent.


Creating these rolodex card flaps was easy! I simply die cut two rolodex cards from the same paper for each day. Then I scored the top cards at 3/8” from the bottom with my score board.



Then I stapled together the two rolodex cards together at the bottom below the score line. I added a tab at the top of each with some stamped and handwritten journaling, and then embellished the front of the cards with ephemera, paper strips, stickers, brads, and enamel dots You can catch the original post with full supplies and instructions on the Echo Park blog HERE

Creating interactive flaps and mini books on layouts is a great way to add extra photos and journaling. And the Rolodex Card Die is a super cute way to do that. Give it a try on your next layout. Creative cheers!
