I ordered the Project Life Turquoise Collection Card Stock pack. It includes 24 sheets of double-sided cardstock. That means four sheets of six different designs -- but really... TWO sheets of each of the 12 designs. Are you with me? I don't have any definite intentions for using the cardstock. I don't plan on doing any full-sheet layouts, so -- I got to thinking about how I could cut the cardstock up to use behind cropped photos in my album w/ Photo Pocket Design A.
I set aside one page for each of the 12 designs - just so that I have some full sheets to fall back on if needed. I'm careful that way. *rolls eyes* I took the remaining sheets and cut them in half, and then in thirds -- making cards that will fit into the photo pockets. I cut one sheet, and then took the matching sheet and rotated it 1 turn, so that when I cut it - the design on the rectangular pieces were different -- you know, just to keep things interesting. Now, I have a pile of 4 x 6 cards to slip in a photo pocket behind a photo.
Let me show you.
^In this case, I cut the paper so that my photos and dots ended up looking different on each card. Obviously a bunch of the cards were just the grid.
^In this case, it didn't matter which way I turned the paper. Any way you slice it, it always comes up peanuts. (Anyone remember that old SNICKERS commercial?)
^And in this case, by turning the page before cutting, I ended up with some cards with vertical stripes, and some with horizontal stripes.
I just need to round all of those corners.
Have you ordered cardstock to match your binder?
How will you use it?
