Hi everyone! It’s Izzy Anderson on the blog today to share a few tips on scrapbooking multiple photos. I haven’t fully embraced Project Life – yet! – so when I have a lot of photos from a day or an event, I typically resize them to fit several on a layout.
Happy Go Lucky Cheerful / Happy Go Lucky Small Tags / Happy Go Lucky Large Tags / Happy Go Lucky Ephemera Pack / Happy Go Lucky Button Set / Happy Go Lucky Patterned Photo Frames / Happy Go Lucky Label Stickers / Happy Go Lucky Sticker Fundamentals / Collecting Moments 6x6 Paper Pad / Collecting Moments Brag Pad / Collecting Moments Decorative Bags / Collecting Moments Label Stickers / Collecting Moments Sticker Fundamentals / What A Wonderful Day Wondrous / What A Wonderful Day Ephemera Pack / Etcetera Decorative Paper Clips
For this layout, I chose seven photos from a nature walk we took this Fall. One photo, I resized to 3.5 x 5 inches and the others I resized to 3 x 4 inches or smaller.
With this many photos, I tackled the often-neglected two-pager. While 12 x 12 inches is my go-to size for single pages, I find 8.5 x 11 pages easier to use for two pagers. I chose a floral background paper from the Happy Go Lucky collection with a large green photo mat in the middle.
I started on the right side, choosing a focal photo of my son reading the map of things to look for on our walk. I grounded the photo on a 4 x 6 page from the Collecting Moments Brag Pad. The page had “Notes” printed at the top and I used that as my title block, adding in words, stickers and die cuts.
After I had the focal photo and title block in place, I arranged the rest of the photos, tucking in bits and pieces to fill in the layout.
On the left side of the layout, I used another page from the Collecting Moments Brag Pad to echo the one on the right. Two small tags on the left counterbalance the large tag on the right and help draw the eyes around the layout.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. We love to see your work. Please feel free to link your Fancy Pants Designs projects here in the comments or on our Facebook page!
