Layout with 18 Pictures!

Hi this is Gaby from GabyCreates  and today I am sharing a tutorial on how I made
A two page layout using 16 4"x6"  and 2 5"x7" photographs (you can use more!).

I made my first video to accompany this tutorial (emphasis on first and far from perfect normal)
I had previously created this layout -- this post is the tutorial on how you can create your own.

1-I started by selecting my pictures and paper.
2- Using a transparency sheet included on the FP paper kit, I created "pockets" on my two page layouts -- These "pockets" (transparency cut in half and sewn around) hold each two strips of embellished card stock with 16 4"x6" pictures--
Note: if yo do not want to stitch or can't, you can staple, or adhere with preferred adhesive or method .
 3-cut a 1/2" (or as wide as you wish) strip of paper, fold in half and adhere or sew on top of transparency so that the edge won't be sharp.
4- Cut 4 --4.25" x 9" (or a bit longer/taller)  pieces of card stock.
5- Adhere your pictures and embellished as desired. (I have two 4"x6" on each side or four pictures each).
Above you can see the photo strips out of the pockets.
 By using the transparency as a "pocket" you can still see the pictures inside of the pocket--
Remember to embellish the back of your photo strips. I will add my journal entry here.
 Here is a view of the left page with picture strip out of the pocket.
The transparency idea I got from Shimelle at TwoPeasInABucket...
I had previously created a pocket with PP (see picture below) additionally, Ki Company sells them.
I created this pocket by adding a piece of 1" piece of PP scored at 1/2" and 1/4" from each end and made into an accordion...you can adhere with strong adhesive or sew like I did here on top.

OK here is the video if you prefer  (...I know, I was hoping you had forgotten about it! [laugh])
