Share & Tell Inspired

Has anyone else seen the share and tell system by Pebbles or the Lickity Slip? It's basically the same idea and I've seen plenty of companies using this idea over the years. It's a sheet protector with slots for the photos, even CTMH has them. Pebbles has a big thing for it now, they even make title and journaling cards for their kits and give you a coupon for a free title/journal set each month. They are wonderfully easy, quick, and pretty cute. But I've always been one of those girls that thinks she could never just settle for slipping in simple 4x6s in the sheet protector slots. And even though I still haven't given into getting the sheet protectors, I do like to lift the basic idea ^_~.

Pebbles has 3 classes for their share and tell program. No Time, where you just slip in photos; Some Time, where you slip in photos and use the title/journaling slip in sheets; and Creative Time, where one side you slip in photos with a journaling sheet and the other side is a classic scrap page. I took inspiration from the Creative Time example. This was the first two page layout I did. I completed both pages in less than an hour, which is record time for me ^_~ I usually take about 2.5 hours per page on average. Now all I've ever seen is the horizontal photo protector sheets, but I took the basic idea and turned it into a scrap page using my vertical pics.

I used new papers that I got from Pebbles on Monday. I adore the way these came out and they took no time at all! This was my second set done in less than an hour as well. I had seen a single Share & Tell layout page that used the title and journaling on the same page and thought that would work perfect with this two page set since I didn't have 5 pictures to go on the other side. Here's a list of supplies for all 4 pages.

  • 2 sheets double sided summer print paper (it's the same page for both stripe and flower)
  • 4 sheets Bazzil cardstock (2 blue, 1 orange, 1 red)
  • 3 sheets white CTMH cardstock (one for a base for each photo intense page and then one for matting)
  • 2 packs Thickers letters (blue foam and white cardstock)
  • 1 cut by the yard orange ribbon
  • 4 doodle bug white buttons
  • 8 CTMH white bigger brads
  • 9 white brads
  • Prima and Petaloo orange flowers
  • Star Struck stamp set by CTMH for arrow and list journaling bullets

The journaling for the layouts and subtitle for the second layout were printed out from my computer using the Tweed font. I really like the outcome of these. I keep seeing other ladies that wow me with their layouts, like Jena ^_~, who have used this simple system and thought, "Hey, if they will do it, I should give it a try!" I'll tell you what, I think I really enjoy this new method since I take LOADS of pictures. You might be seeing me scrap this way a lot more often. I can really go for simple right now since I'm still way behind and I keep scrapping 2008 pictures, lol.

These turned out so cute! You know that I've been using the photo storage pages pages and let me tell you how easy they are! I too struggle with just sliding them in there - I feel l ike I should be doing more with those pics. I have seen some really awesome examples, though where they stamp on the photo storage page with Staz-On - they looked really cool. Anyway, enough babbling - great pages - TFS!
