Scrap the Back – Paperclipping 276


This is one of the most common questions I’m asked…

What do you do with the back of your pocket pages when you’re using them as supplements to traditional 12×12 pages in traditional albums?

And this spin off…

Don’t you worry about not having anything in the backs?

So here is my question…

Does this worry keep you from using pocket pages in your traditional scrapbooking?

I hope not. I love the scrapbook pages that are traditional + pocket, side-by-side.

And, no, the back is NEVER a worry of mine. There is plenty to do with them.

Same goes for other unusual pages, like if you ever choose to scrapbook a smaller size page and maybe even rounded the corners!


I’m going to show you a few examples of what I did for all of these. We’ll go searching through my son’s current album for these empty backs and then put together three different pages that have been waiting to be filled.

It’s all a part of this week’s episode of Paperclipping. It’s a video for Paperclipping Members and you can already find it in the Member’s Area and on iTunes.
