Last fall my family had a big get together. We had multiple activities, lots of fun and I took HUNDREDS of pictures! Far more then what would fit on one layout but it was all one big event. So I thought to myself if I was scrapbooking these pictures classic style I would have used flip flaps to add real estate space. So I thought to myself why can't I use flip flaps with Studio J layouts! (do you see the big light bulb turning on over my head?) And that my friends is just what I did!
The full project required 3 2-page layouts. First I picked 2 layouts that could be divided into 2 sections. 4x12 and 8x12. (note the first and second layout shown).
The 3rd layout was the base. The left hand page of the base and the inside flip flap page was about one part of the weekend, making the apple cider, while the right hand page of the base and the inside flip flap page was about another part of the weekend, zip lining.
Here are the finished layouts cut and in the sheet protectors and flip flaps.

Couple of tips:
- Make sure that you don't have any dimensional accents that are over your cut lines like ribbon, buttons, brads ect.
- Try to coordinate your left hand base page with your flip flaps. What I mean by this is that if you are using different B&T papers for each part of the even you will want to make sure they remain consistent for the flip flap pages as well. Also, make sure your ribbon and accents stay consistent. I made the mistake of using two different ribbon colors on the zip lining side. I also wish I had pulled more blue b&t into the flip flaps.
- You can also add 4x6 and 6x6 flip flaps as well! The sky is the limit my friends!
