Family Portrait Layout with alligators!

A fun twist on a neutral toned layout.  This layout was created with the Chelsea Gardens paper suite.  The colors are shades of greys, whites and blacks and are great for more formal photographs and also for allowing colors to pop!  In my case, my photos were darker than I would have liked but the brightness and the neutral shades of the papers brightened the photos.  My children were in shades of blacks and whites which really made the Christmas decorations pop as well!  

I loved the inclusion of the flip flaps as they allowed the layout to include additional photos and not have a cluttered feel.  I used the Cricut for the sub-titles "no live alligators allowed" as well as my journaling. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite tools.  If you look very closely, you will see that the title "The Jefferson Hotel" was Cricut cut as well.  So much fun!

To see any of details more closely, simply click on the picture and it will open larger in a new window.
Full Spread with all flip flaps closed.

Left page with 3 stacked flip flaps.  These flip flaps are stacked directly on top of one another.  
A chipboard heart is used to create a tab on the top flip flap.

Right page with 2 layered flip flaps.  This page uses two horizontal flip flaps.  They are not stacked as on the left side but one is above the other.  Make sure to leave a little bit of an edge so they don't snag on another.  Again, a chipboard heart is used for the tabs.

Here is the layout shown without pictures with the flip flaps closed.

Here is the same layout with the layouts flip flaps open.

Although the Chelsea Gardens suite is now retired, this kit is available in my In All Sassiness Designs Shop for $12.00.  The kit includes all of the pre-cut pieces needed to create the layout, a sheet of chipboard compliments, flip flaps, page protectors, bulk ribbon and embellishments, detailed instructions and a color photo.  For those who are local, select "pick up" to avoid shipping charges.
