Fathers Day Pages

Thanks for hopping with us! I’m pretty happy with the pages I made this time, and I hope you like them too. Read to the end to find your next blog hop stop . . .

For some Fathers Day scrapbooking this year, I decided to combine the efficient “questions” journaling approach with pockets and turn these into hidden journaling pages.

For these pages, I used:

The layout itself is pretty straightforward, but I did want to talk about the pockets a bit. On each side of the two-page spread, there are four pockets that each open to the outside of the page so that cards can be slid in and out, even with the page protectors on!

The final measurements of each card (all from trimmed down slide-in cards) are 3.5″ (width) x 2.75″ (height). I used a Corner Rounder to add some interest to the outside edge of each card.

The final measurements of each pocket are 3.25″ (width) x 3″ (height). For each pocket, I followed these steps:

  1. Start with a 3.5″x3.5″ square of paper.
  2. Score along the top, bottom, and inside edges at .25″ using Multi-purpose Tool and the grid on a 12-inch Trimmer.
  3. Fold the three scored sides of the paper under the pocket.
  4. Adhere the .25″ folded edges to the page.

Have you tried hidden journaling on your pages? Have you ever used questions (like these or other questions) to guide your journaling? I’d love to hear from you in the comments below!

  3. Fun idea! I’ve been wanting to do some interviewing parents and grandparents; it would be fun to incorporate the questions and answers into an album.
