I was going to post this yesterday for Work It Wednesday but blinked and Wednesday disappeared. So, forgive my lateness....
Here's a quick idea. If you have a lot of page protectors laying around and you are looking for something new to try in your albums, you can actually turn your page protector into your layout.
I don't have step-by-steps to show you but basically what I did was determine where I wanted to place the photo and then did some hand stitching to make a little floating pocket. From there I placed my other elements as needed and viola! Done.
The thing I like about this is that it gives my layout a look like it was done on a transparency or acrylic piece but all the major parts are under the sleeve and still protected in my album.
Give it a try.
