Using 6x6 Paper Pads on Full Size Scrapbook Layouts

For quick scrapbook layouts, try using full sheets from 6x6 paper pads.

There are many ways you can use 6x6 pads on full size scrapbook layouts, but the easiest and quickest is simply using the paper just as they are in the full 6 x 6" size.

I don't know about you, but as busy as life can be, sometimes it's nice to just go with the easy, quick route. Especially when I'm tackling an event with lots of photos, like our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. There are just so many photo opportunities...

Picking pumpkins...

Picking baby pumpkins from the cute wooden cart...

Drew and Jackson fighting over the pumpkin they both want...

Pumpkin painting...

Hayride around the pumpkin patch...

The corn maze...

So. Many. Pictures!! I know I'm not the only one that finds myself in this photo overload situation!

This is when 6x6" paper pads can be your savior and make life so much easier.

Here are a few tips:

• Use one 6x6 sheet to highlight or frame a favorite photo, a title, or your journaling.

• Use two or more sheets together to create a background piece (like I did on my layout.)

• 6x6 papers pair wonderfully with 4x6" and 6x4" photos.

• They also work really well with 3x3" and 2x2" photos.
