You Create: 8×10 Layouts
What size photos do you usually use in your scrapbooking? Chances are you use 4x6s photos.
I typically use 4×6 photos in my scrapbooking because:
- It’s standard.
- I don’t plan my layouts ahead of time, so I don’t know when I would like an enlargement.
- It’s cost-effective (especially when combined with a photo deal).
- I can incorporate more photos on a page.
Lately there have been a lot of 8×10 photo deals. Since I don’t have a lot of 8×10 frames, I have been using the photos in my scrapbooking layouts.
Check them out:
2 Peas in a Pod (8×10): You’ll notice that the journaling circles around the cut-outs of the boys.
Family (8×10): Super simple – didn’t trim the photo at all. Just a couple paper layers, a journaling tag, a title – DONE.
The Union Terrace (this was actually a free 11×14 that I got a while back and cut down): This layout is on a Hambly
12×12 transparency, which I LOVE.
Incorporating large photos in scrapbooking is so fun! The pages are usually easy to create (each of these took 15-30 minutes) and the results are impressive because the photo pops so much.
Do you ever use large photos in your scrapbooking?
