Hardware and Office Supply Layout

This layout was made using foil tape from Home Depot and Prong Fasteners from the clearance bin at Office Depot. I used Heidi Swapp's masks for the title and flourishes.

The foil tape is really a great find! I cut a strip 12 inches long, then used my stylus to emboss flourishes and peeled the backing off to adhere to the page.

The fastener helped create the "mini book" that I attached to the page, inside are additional photos and a journaling page. I cut a slit in the page protector so you can flip through the book.

thanks for sharing your blog link with me - what a clever LO! I love the extra journalling "book".

I enjoy embossing metals. I like what you did with that metal tape! I have a whole box of those little binder things, too...Hmmmm. Can you elaborate little about how you made it so you can flip the pages with the page still in its page protector?

I put the page in the protector before cutting, I used a craft knife to cut a slit the height of the picture, then slit from the side of the picture about 1/4 inch wide (the width of the prong fastener)then pulled the pictures and journaling block through the slit.
