October Club Q kit with Quick Quotes~

Hi, Connie here today sharing ideas from the October Club Q kit.  The papers are from the Sonata Collection by Quick Quotes. The paper colors are screaming "Fall is coming" and I'm so ready.

This is a page and a half connected and that is able to fold back to a 12" x 12"  The inspiration came from wanting all the photos, from this day, on one page.  This is how the fold out was created~

#1. You will need two sheets of 12" x 12" pattern paper.  The paper sheet trim off the salvage.  The second sheet, trim off the salvage and cut in half, giving you a 6" x 12" piece of paper. Set one half aside. Taking the other half trim 1" x 12" off of the sheet and set it aside.  You will use it on the pocket, for the fold out page. Score down the middle of the 1" x 12"piece of paper.  That is the hinge that will allow the paper to fold out and in. Adhere one side of hinge to the 12" x 12" and the other side to the 6" x 12".
#2. You now have attached the two papers together creating a fold out type page.
#3.  Folded in collage view.

This photo is showing that both papers are almost but not quite touching each other. That is what you need so the page will fold in and out.

#4. The 5" x 12" of pattern paper you set aside is what the pocket was made from. Fold up on the bottom of the 5" x 12" and adhere the sides together, creating a memorabilia pocket.  The second picture, on the collage, is showing that the back of the pocket was used for more photos.

By closing the hinged paper to make a 12" x 12" page you have created another spot to add photos.
Two different events on the same day, all on one page ~ achieved!!  The left over pieces from the kit I made a couple of cards.

and the second one~
