I wanted to scrapbook Daniel's year at the coal mine but I didn't know which pictures were most important to Daniel. So, I asked him to go through them and take out the unimportant ones. Well, after he removed two pictures there were still 14 left! I didn't want to scrapbook four pages but each picture reminded Daniel about different aspects of the job! So I pulled out my brand new Magic book, compiled three different interactive elements into one layout and had a great time learning new techniques! So how did I get 14 (basically) 4x6 pictures into one layout?
Magic I added a sliding picture element to turn a space for two 4x6 pictures into holding three 4 x 6 pictures! (See the picture above and below to see that as the button slides up and down a picture is alternately hidden and revealed).
Magic I created a nine picture mini-album. It was actually quite easy to make and with no special supplies other than cardstock and adhesive!
Magic I punched little holes on the ends of the slits I wanted to cut and cut slits with a craft knife. With the nine picture mini-book I actually cut an entire rectangle out of the page protector. Then when I slid my page in, I could pull the interactive elements through to the outside of the page.
I had fun planning and putting this page together. I'm looking forward to playing with more of the interactive ideas that are in Magic on future layouts!
