First, let's look at a 6"x6" page I made showcasing our beloved cat, Emily. We lost her a couple years ago, but we all still have a spot in our hearts reserved just for her.
Nice looking page, right? It would be perfect for a "Favorite Photos" album, or as a cover page for an album dedicated to Emily and all the photos we have of her over the years. Well, let's step it up to an 8 1/2" x 11" size:
As you can see, the page transforms into one that focuses not only on Emily, but on the relationship between my son, Morgan, and Emily. He truly loved her and I cherish these photos of him and her together. All I did to change the look was put the 6"x6" page on top of an 8-1/2"x11" sheet of textured Always Artichoke and added a new title and some more embellishments from Brocade Basics.
Now let's take it one more step, up to a 12"x12" page:
Neat, huh?! I still have the same look, but with the larger size, there is room for another photo and some journaling. If you compare photos, you can see that I just moved a couple pieces around a bit to keep the balance in check.
That's all there is to it! I would love to hear your thoughts - I am considering starting a Scrapbook Club that will meet every-other month to make 4 pages using a particular pack of DSP (chosen by the hostess of each month). I would design the layouts, provide the supplies, and all the members would reap the hostess benefits. There would be a small supply fee as well as a minimum order amount. If you are local and are interested in something like this, please let me know. I need commitments from 6 people to move forward with it.
Thanks for dropping by!
