I have enjoyed the many videos of layouts that contain hidden journal tags and/or mini albums on a page. How do you make these easy to access when you put them in the scrapbook sleeves? I love the layouts, but would love to see how the readers access these secret bits easily!
Thank you!

You can just cut a slit in the page protector where the item pulls out.

do the page protectors hold up or do they tear beyond the slits?!
newbie at that idea, obviously!
Thanks!

I use tags that can be accessed from the top of the page.

yep, I got the top of the page option...I was thinking about the mini book that was in the video today towards the bottom of the page! So you'd cut 3 sides and just leave the flap of acetate covering the cover of the album then?!

I have had no problems with page protectors tearing after I cut slits in them, but I do two other things more often.

1. Design the layout so the journaling pocket is near the top, and a tag or tab can easily be pulled out of the pocket.

2. With stitching, glue dots or some other strong adhesive, attach a smaller, or part of a divided page protector on top of the 12 x 12 page protector. In the smaller page protector, I will probably have a photo on top. The journaling could go either in the small page protector on the bottom side, or on the layout itself underneath the photo/smaller page protector. Then you have one more area to worry about, and there you could put more photos, more journaling and/or FLAT embellishments.

I've made a lift-the flap type thing on scrapbook pages.

I mat a photo, and then put journaling or another photo (Or both!) beneath it.

Then I cut the page protector so the the 2 sides and bottom are not attached, but the top is.

I feel like there is very little added strain on the page protector that way.

Yes, I've cut my page protector on three side to allow the booklet to be opened without removing my layout from the sleeve. I have not had one rip, though I'm sure it could if not handled carefully.

I think if you poke holes on either end of where you are going to slit and then slit between the holes of the page protector it helps stops any further tearing in the future

You can also just write on the back and put a little note on the front "for the whole story read the flip side" or you can put an insert between pages.

I've found this to be true - I use the smallest hole punch I have and the hole is practically invisible, but it's enough that the cut ends and there's no where for it to go...
