If you’re like me, you sometimes get into a situation when you’re scrapbooking where you have one extra photo that won’t fit on your layout. Rather than having to leave out a photo that you want included, it’s easy to work it in with a simple hinge using a brad. In my example here, I adhered a photo to a piece of white cardstock and stamped the title. Next, I stacked another photo on top of the first photo and inserted a corduroy brad through both. Then, I adhered the entire white cardstock piece to my page. The result is a simple photo hinge. When I inserted this page into my page protector (not shown), I used an exacto knife to cut out the section of protector around the photos so that I can swing the photo even when it’s inside my album.
This simple hinge technique is perfect for adding an extra photo (or two!) or providing a hiding place for a feature on your page such as the journaling, ticket stubs, kids handprint, etc.
