I can’t wait to share these next books with you. They won’t be ready for a few weeks, so today is just a sneak peek.
Volumes 2 and 3 of Janda’s family history (this is Volume 1) will contain pockets. Many many pockets.
Here’s why. Janda discovers new branches of her family at an astonishing rate (is there a cure for ancestry.com addiction?) So there will naturally be new family charts, documents, photos, etc. And that’s where the pockets come in. She’ll just insert them as she finds them, and the books will be her ongoing family archives.
So this week was Pocket Making Week. Armed with straight edges, exactos, and plenty of adhesive, Maggie and I whipped up 54 (dare I say) stunning pockets.
Here’s a before/after of one of the map pockets (apologies for terrible lighting – the paper is not really yellow).
It’s a diagonal pocket all the way across the page, one of several pocket styles we used. I’ll post lots more photos when the books are all finished!
