My Creative Scrapbook Design Team member Kristin Greenwood has a tutorial for you today featuring our May Album kit. Read on to learn how she added her son's artwork and notes to her layout!

Here's Kristin:

"I have been collecting all the little notes and drawings that my little boy makes for me for awhile and storing them in a box. I knew that one day I would find a way to incorporate them into my scrapbook pages! When I saw the envelopes that come in the kit, I knew I had found the perfect way to include them on a layout!

To help preserve them I used contact paper to laminate them. It is a cheap and easy way to protect these little treasures!

I wanted to have easy access to them on my page so I decided to cut my page protector. Take the treasures out of the pockets and put the layout in the page protector, using a dry eraser and a ruler I drew lines where I wanted the openings to be.

I took the layout out of the page protector. To make the cuts I put a cutting mat in the page protector and cut it with an exacto knife. Wipe off any marks left from the dry eraser.

Put your layout back in the page protector. Your treasures should slide thru the cuts you made back in to the pockets."
