Multi photo scrapbook layouts are not as common to find as layouts with just a photo or two. Don’t get me wrong I do love layouts with lots of ‘white space’ on my pages. And you can such beautiful things with all the ‘extras’ on a layout. But there are times when I have a number of photos that I want included on a spread.
This layout is one of them. I wanted to document a LOAD (layout a day) challenge I had participated in back in February. I had 28 photos of the layouts that I created over the course of the month. But narrowed it down to 9 that I wanted to include on a 2-page spread. An additional obstacle was that the pages were going into a 6″x8″ album. So I decided to print my photos 2″ x 2″ and create pockets for a few of the photos.
The Follow Your Art Suite was the perfect suite to document these photos. I love a white background for my layouts but thought it needed just a bit of color behind the photos. So I took my crushed curry ink pad and just swiped it across the background and then added a bit of splatter.
To create the little pockets I used the envelope punch board (retired) and cut my dsp to 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ and then my 1st score line is at 1 7/8″ then I just followed the instructions on the board. It made these cute 2″ x 2″ pockets that I could tuck the extra photos in.
If you would love more ideas on how to incorporate multiple photos on a scrapbook layout, watch for the next class in my Let’s Get Series to be released later this month. Be sure that you are on my mailing list so you get all the info when it’s released.
Have a creative day!
