New Style Photo Fold Out!
We've been on a mission around here to bring you real products you can use, that actually fit a need you have in your scrapbooking...getting more photos on your pages.  It is one of our favorite things to dream designs and make them happen!

Our newest addition to our photo fold out line is a horizontal fold out.
The horizontal photo fold out includes several pieces.  There is a large pre scored piece that fits on your horizontally, a pocket to hold a large tag, a large tag, and file folder tab in each package.  The two images above show the fold out being opened..one from the side view one from the top.  Once opened, what is revealed is the inside pocket and tag, which hold MORE photos and journaling. Each of the pieces that fold open have protective sleeves to cover them, and the giant tag pocket also has it's own protective sleeve!
The tag slides out of the pocket, to reveal more photos, journaling and fun!  Photos can be placed behind the tag if you want, or on the back of the tag.  If you count the photos on this layout you'll find 17 photos!
17 PHOTOS! 

As an added note I had fun with this layout using the bakers twine.  I covered buttons with score tape, and then covered them with bakers twine.  I also made my own really great looking border by covering the scor tape with bakers twine (and you DO NOT want to know how long that took!).  

I built magnetic snaps into my photo fold out to hold the layout shut.
This is done by adhering them to the fold as show below BEFORE you accent the fold out piece. 
One magnet on the top piece, and one magnet on the bottom. Then add your photos and papers as desired.

If you would rather use ribbon, then you can adhere a piece of ribbon to the back, and wrap it around the front. 

So how does that fit into a page protector?
Make your page.
1. Slide your page into the page protector.
2. Use a dull pencil, or an embossing stylist, and trace around the outside edge of the shape.
3. Take the page out of the page protector.
4. Slide a scrap paper or cutting mat into the page protector, and cut on the line you've created.
5. Slide your page back into the page protector and it fits perfectly.

On a personal note let me update you on a few things!  I will be traveling all week and have a very, very full plate!  Orders placed between now and Tuesday will not be shipping until Wednesday.  SMASH orders are getting more difficult to fill as we are running out of some products!  I have updated the website to reveal ship dates, as I'm pretty sure that The Great American Scrapbook Show this weekend will wipe out our entire  SMASH inventory.  I have previously already ordered more product, and they tell me that order is on the way...we shall see!

Thanks for all your support.  It's been so great lately to hear from customers that we've known for years!

Here's some great inspiration from the Gals at Bo Bunny Press.  This product is set to ship from Creek Bank Creations next week! On the website now!

Have you seen the Mudd Puddles product that goes so well with this type of page?  We offer it in several colors! 


Mudd Puddles is a sand like product with the adhesive binder built into it.  You simply open the container, stir it up and apply it to your project with an applicator knife.  (we do recommend the knife as it gives you a smooth finish).  The product is wet, so on chipboard use it sparingly like I did here.  
When applying this product to larger pieces of chipboard I recommend that you cover the surface using the sand applicator knife. While it is still wet, wipe the edges clean with the knife.  Allow the project to air dry around 2 hours.  It will start to bow on you at this point.  Cover the pieces with wax paper then place some books on the projects.  This will flatten out your project and it will dry flat.  Allow to dry several hours or overnight.  Remember to keep the knife clean after each application or the adhesive will dry on your knife making it impossible to apply the sand in a smooth fashion. 

 I have designed several chipboard books for your summer memories as well.  These are all custom designed by me, and are cut from Creek Bank Creations heavyweight chipboard.
 The Sun book has dimensional layers, along with flip flops and a popsicle you can accent.  I covered the sun with the yellow mud and the popsicle with the mango color.
Mud puddles is the perfect accent for Creek Bank Creations chipboard words like beach, vacationcruise or splash!  
Oh the creative fun we can have!

The tiny flowers shown in this photo are fun easy to make.  They measure just around .75" wide.  I took a button from the sticker sheet that I was not going to use, and used it sticky side up for my base. I then took a piece of bakers twine about 15" long and put a knot in the end of it.  I stuck that knot (trimming off the end) and stuck it into the sticker.  I then just wound the bakers twine around in a circle shape, and tucking it into the back.  This is a great way to use stickers you are not using!

Purchase the bowl book here!

I recommend that you adhere paper to chipboard using Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.
For clean edges use Creek Bank Creations Lil Sis Sanding Stick on edges.
You will need a Crop a Dile Hole Punching Tool, or some kind of binding system for this book.  I used snap rings for my book.  (snap rings here)

Photo Fold Out large

Our large photo fold out is another Creek Bank Creations exclusive product.  We know you want to get more photos on a page.  We know that when you say you want more photos on your pages, you aren't talking about photos that measure 2"x2"!  You want to put all your photos on your pages, and we've been listening!  Our large photo fold out lets you place 4x6 photos on the fold out, holding up to  around 12 photos...and journaling! 
Photobucket
We've made this layout with Fancy Pants Beach Bum paper!  It's a great place to put all your beach photos, or simply amend the title and turn it into any kind of summer layout! 
Photobucket
The Fancy Pants paper comes with the printed banner on it.  I simply cut it out, wrapped it with bakers twine and adhered it to the layout! 

The flip flop clothes line is also printed on the Fancy Pants paper.  In this case I found a scrap piece of paper and put a line of Beacon's Adhesive on the scrap.  I laid the bakers twine in the glue, then picked it up and moved it over to my paper cut out piece.  This transfers the bakers twine to the piece, with a small amount of adhesive on the twine, which doesn't show.

Fancy Pants Beach Bum Papers used:  Flip Flop, Hammock, Marina, Boogy Board.

I built magnetic snaps into my photo fold out.  This is what holds the Photo Fold Out Shut.
This is done by adhering them to the fold as show below BEFORE you accent the fold out piece.
One magnet on the inside left, and one magnet on the outside right. (these magnets are sticky backed, but I also used a tiny spot of glossy accents on them). Then add your photos and papers as desired.
If you would rather use ribbon, then you can adhere a piece of ribbon to the back, and wrap it around the front.

So how does that fit into a page protector?

Make your page.
1. Slide your page into the page protector.
2. Use a dull pencil, or an embossing stylist, and trace around the outside edge of the shape.
3. Take the page out of the page protector.
4. Slide a scrap paper or cutting mat into the page protector, and cut on the line you've created.
5. Slide your page back into the page protector and it fits perfectly.
