Default How to look at pockets on pages

I have a question that I have always wondered about. I like the look of hidden pages on a layout. Using hinges and things like that. Well my question is how do you look at it after? Do you need to pull the page out of the page protector every time you want to look at it? I love the look, but don't want to ruin the page with fingers always touching it. Thanks for the help. I love that I have a place to ask this at now

I havent done any myself, but I did see one where the page protector was cut from where the hidden journaling was. The page protector was attached to the paper so nothing was "flapping loose" Am I making any sense?

I guess that could be done whith pockets too, and maybe eaven just a slit would work for a tag you can pull out...

Doh! That's what I was going to suggest. I was hoping I could look clever for once !

I dabbled in the dark art of hidden journalling for the first time recently. I put some newspaper articles that I'd written about days out behind photos on the pages I'd done about the same days out (confused yet?). But I don't really want any old bod taking the sb apart and reading them - they're really only for future descendants to read - so I didn't bother with slits etc. I might next time but I don't really want them getting dog-eared in my lifetime.

A tip for trimming page protectors.

Slip your scrapbook page inside a page protector and mark on the outside of the page protector with a dry-erase marker where the page element is you wish to expose.

Remove Scrapbook page from protector

Slip self-healing mat with grid pattern inside page protector and line up so that the grid is "square" with the marks you have made. Use a craft blade and straight edge to cut on the grid lines for a perfectly shaped opening.

Happy Hiding!!

You can also use a swiveling craft knife, like the one in the Coluzzle set that a lot of people have, to cut with. I have found it works pretty good!

I made a hidden journaling tag that I put at the top of the page so that you could pull it out from the top of the page protector.
