  1. These are some really neat scraping ideas and can’t weight to make my pages.

  2. How do you use this in addition to a page protector? Or, omit the page protector from these pages?

    1. The memorabilia would stay safe and secure under the Page Protector. Should any one wish to look closer at the memorabilia in the future, they could slip the Page Protector off to access the memorabilia. Another option would be to adhere the pocket embellishment on top of your Page Protector for easy access to the memorabilia. We always recommend use of Page Protectors on any pages that feature photos.

  3. I am with Becky Green – How do you use this layout with page protectors? Otherwise, it looks great!

  4. I also would like to know how or if you use a page protector. Do you use them under a protector or on top like the plastic pockets?

  5. I have using an exacto knife and a small 1/8 in punch made a slits in my page protectors to expose elements. For this layout I would make 2 slits exposing the top 1/4 inch of the pockets and their contents. the rest of the page remains covered. The punch may not be necessary if you expose part of the travel log pockets. Otherwise if you suspect lots of tension on your slit, by finishing each end with a circle punch the protector will no longer tear.
