Scrapbook Quick Tip: Using Two of the Same 6x6" Papers Together

When working with smaller papers you'll find that you might have to piece together multiple pieces to create larger designs. Using two of the same 6x6" papers together to create a 6x12" piece is great way to do that.

On the right side of my layout I used two 6x6" papers together to create a 6x12" background for a grouping of photos and embellishments. I also added a hand-stitched border around that whole section, further creating the illusion that it's all one piece.

This is a go-to concept that I used often when 6x6" paper pads. Most 6x6" paper pads will come with two sheets so you can do this with practically any paper.

You can arrange them to create a vertical 6x12" piece or horizontal for a 12 x 6" piece. You can arrange photos on top of the paper (like I did with my layout) or you can line the edges of the block with photo and add your title and journaling on top of the papers.

The rest of this layout is also created with 6x6" papers, again creating the illusion of longer papers, this time by cutting two pieces of the same patterned paper and arranging one above and one below the photos.

This layout is based on a sketch from the Sketches for 6x6 Paper Pads: Two-page Sketches download.

I also hosted a class/group that worked with the sketches above. The PDF content from that class is available as well. You can find it here.
