My Crush Inspiration Pt. 2 - Scrap Your Scraps

I love December - not only because of Christmas, but because I always seem to do so many fun things throughout the month. I always end up with a pile of tickets, tags, and other memorabilia (this happens to me on vacations as well). 

Idea #2: Scrap your scraps. Because My Crush books are more like journals, they really are the perfect place to hold all your fun odds and ends from trips and events. 

My Holiday Happenings My Crush book is all about last December, and this page in particular focuses on some of my favorite events. We went to movies, visited historic towns and saw a fun Christmas musical. But I only managed to get one photo - everything else was ephemera. So, what to do?

Flip Flaps - These plastic pockets make it possible to hold lots of photos, postcards and other items. You can show off your favorite up front, and tuck away other items that you want to keep, but don't want to have front and center.

Pockets - The Holiday Happenings Assortment comes with adorable pockets that are perfect for tucking away items you want to keep, but don't want to showcase. I put ticket stubs in mine. 

Hidden Spaces - Use areas behind the Flip Flaps, pockets and tags to hide additional mementos that might not go with your page design. That way you preserve them, but they don't clash. 

Scrap your scraps while taking advantage of June's special and getting your free stamp set (a $9.95 value!) with the purchase of any My Crush book and assortment.

I like what you did with the Holiday Happenings. Still trying to decide if I "NEED" that one.
