iSND Blog Hop!

Welcome to DHD's iNSD Blog Hop! Thanks for stopping by! Today we will talk about the fun uses of Digital Page Protectors AND I have a freebie for you too! Who doesn't like those right!?

(if you've found this out by chance and would like to participate in the Blog Hop just click HERE to take you to the beginning!)  

So have you played around with the newest Digi craze - digital protector pages and pockets? I gotta say it's my new favourite go-to product lately! I've used them quite a few times for my pages and I'd love to share some examples for you! Design House Digital some fabulous ones in the shop too! Here are a few:

(Protector Pockets 2 and Protectors Set 2 - Karla Dudley; Clear Plastic Protectors - Angie Hinksman; The Road to Success - Karen Funk)

Protector pages and pockets are great for adding a little extra 'something' to your layout. They make wonderful frames and even templates and mimic the look of the pocket pages traditional scrappers also use. :) Here let me show you some uses:

Protector Pages as a TEMPLATE
Here are two examples of using protector pages as a template. It makes it so easy to clip your papers and photos into because everything is blocked out for you! Karla Dudley makes some wonderful ones in the shop. She also gives shadow options for both dark and light background papers. Click on images for credits.

Protector pockets as a FRAME
Pocket protectors hold your photos, but also frame them nicely too! Here is an example using Karen Funk's clear pockets. Click on images for credits.

This next layout - BFF - is by Shannon Dombkowski. She used Angie Hinksman's clear Pockets to frame her photo. Click on photo for credits.

Protector Pockets to use in PROJECT LIFE type layouts.

This year I jumped on the Project Life bandwagon... I love documenting my life - week by week! I used Karla's Protector Pockets on each template in my album. I feel it helps anchor down my photos and cards on the template. Click on image for credits. Here's an example:

Speaking of Project Life, I have some fun 'Smiley' quote cards for your projects! You can also use them in regular layouts or print/cut out for traditional pages too! Hope you can find use for them!


** If you like these cards, I have two other sets available for Free! You can find them HERE!

Are you still with me? LOL... if so I'll be doing a drawing for a $10 DHD gift certificate! So if you enjoyed your stay leave a comment below and I will randomly draw a name! If you use my cards on a layout or project you can post again with a link for more chances to win! Contest closes next Tuesday May 7th at midnight EST!
