Fun With Photo Blocks #11

Get the best of both worlds by including more photos with a large photo block on one side of your layout while still having some fun by creating a more traditional scrapbooking design on the other.




Supplies used - Patterned paper, chipboard, stickers, die cuts, and enamel dots: Simple Stories; Ink: Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink; Embroidery floss: DMC; Computer font: Century Gothic


It's really hard to believe that this teeny, tiny baby is a giant teenager now. I know we as parents say it a lot, but really where does the time go?


For the large photo block on this layout, I used an arrangement of four 6 x 4" spaces on the bottom portion of the right page. Three of those spaces have 6 x 4" photos. The bottom right space has a 3 x 4" card and a 3 x 4" photo. On the card I used a small frame and photo.



Above the 6 x 4" photos I used a 12 x 4" strip from Simple Stories. On the left side of the strip there is a doily and the "love" banner. I add a small cluster of detail photos with some phrase stickers, chipboard hearts, enamel dots, and die cut pieces.



With those pieces I have a mix of different textures and dimensions so I wanted to add a little extra to the pieces (the doily and banner) that are part of the paper design. To do that I added some hand stitching along the banner and added some enamel dots and a chipboard star.



I love papers that have designs like this, because they are easy to use and easy to enhance with extra texture and dimension.


On the left page I took advantage of another paper that had a design already on it. There is a moon, cloud, and the "love you to the moon" banner printed on the paper. I used several ways to add some extra texture, dimension, and detail.




I used small block letter stickers along the bottom of the banner. I cut a small notch out of the bottom side of each letter. Then I added some die cut hearts and stars, chipboard hearts and stars, and finished the look with some enamel dots here and there.


I love it when the papers make design so much easier!
