I’m excited to share my first foray into 8.5” x 11” layouts! These were all made over the last few weeks.
I had never made layouts this size before, but I’ve seen a ton of them in other scrappers’ layout galleries. I finally decided to give them a try, and I have to say I really enjoy making them! They are much less overwhelming than my usual 12” x 12” layouts, as there is not as much space to fill. I prefer a simple, minimal embellishment look to my pages, but with 12-by-12 pages, that kind of style can sometimes look “bland.” I also find that working with a smaller space makes them come together pretty quickly, and I am all about that.
Bonus: I’m finally scrapping all those random photos I’ve been hanging on to forever.
(I am so grateful that Fanless taught me how to make multi-photo canvases in Photoshop. I love how they look.) Products: Making Memories Sabrina, except the pink Thickers (By The Yard).
Products: Cloud 9 Design, except the little white flower.
Products: Making Memories Noteworthy Tara, except the green Thickers (Remarks) and the “Friends” epoxy sticker (Imaginisce, I think.)
Products: Work In Progress kit (the papers and chipboard are SEI), except the Thickers (Leg Warmers).
Products: Paper Crush by Colorbok.
Products: KI Memories Juicy Summer, except the Thickers (Sprinkles) and the flower brad (from my stash).
Products: K&Company Que Sera Sera (LOVE this collection!) and the photo of Fanless was taken by my photographer friend, Scott.
Products: Making Memories Whimsy, except the white alphas (EK Success) and the green Thickers (Rockabye).
Products: Making Memories Noteworthy Tara, except the “Y” and “H” (I think those are Making Memories Funky Vintage).
Products: American Crafts Moda Bella, except the Fleur-de-lis sticker (Hambly). The Thickers are ‘Chit Chat.’
Oh, I almost forgot: all the cardstock used is from Stampin’ Up and The Paper Company.
I predict I’m going to be making a lot more 8.5” x 11” layouts in the future!
