Today's Story by Echo Park Paper part 2

As promised yesterday, here is the second half of my Today's Story collection layouts. (Click Here for yesterday's post.) What do you think, will you give this system a try? When you look at the collection you will see the divided cards printed on the papers and you can just cut them and pop them into the sleeves but just adding a bit of stitching or a couple of embellishments can make the pages more eye catching. For this page I hand cut the "remember this" design and attached it to a pink background and just punched a little bit of confetti, because confetti is always fun.

I just love this pink page because I never get to play with these fun colors since I have all boys. LOVE the 4x6" block of pink chevrons but I needed two 3x4 blocks so I just cut it in half. Don't forget you have to make these things work for your photos. I punched some holes and confetti and did a really fun square that you can see thru. Oh and the arrow frame thingie is just cut from white cardstock. I am liking arrows for these pocket pages since the journaling could be to the side or above the photo. Don't forget there are some really really cute stickers with this collection, if you aren't a sticker person just put them on foam squares for dimension. Now notice that the bottom row of pockets is actually for 4x6" pieces, but I wanted more of the 3x4" pockets so I just made 4 pieces and put them in the larger pockets :)

And this page with all 4x6 photos was very fun and guess what? The step by step detailed instructions are available for a free download on Echo Park's website HERE. Be sure to check out the other great projects and idea books that are available for free download while you are there.
