Lynne's Concertina Page Layout

Lynne's Concertina Page Layout

Hello everyone,

This is based on a pocket page measuring 8” (H) x 81/8” (L)

As well as black card and the beautiful "The Beach is Calling" from Graphic 45 you will also need:
6 magnets 
3mm ribbon x 2½”

I cut card as follows:-

Left flap – 8" x 4½” - score ½”along 1 long side.
Right flap – 8” x 4” – score as above)
Concertina – 8” x 8¾” - score @ ½” , 5”
Outside pocket – 4¼”x 4” - score ½” on both sides& bottom edge. This is optional.
Inside pocket – 8” x 5” - score ½” top/bottom & ¾” on 1 long side.
Back of inside pocket – 7” x 6¼”

My layout is based on an uneven page number ( e.g. 1,3,5,7) if you wanted
an even number page, then a mirror image layout is required.

I haven't shown where to place photo mats as this is a personal choice.
However, if anyone wants any ideas then check out my gatefold album at

 In the video on Page 1, I have added photo mats and tuck ins using the Mexican whisker die set.

We always love to see how Lynne puts her fabulous Albums together and
that's another fabulous idea for a Page Layout.
If Lynne has inspired you to create your own page please head over to

Happy Crafting.
