8x8 Album

Hi Everyone! Today I want to share with you a few 8x8 Layouts - this is kind of a long post as I have 8 layouts to share. The Scrappers Challenge Yahoo group has a template for an 8x8 album template using 12x12 paper and cutting it down. Well I'm cleaning out my left over paper file to make these layouts.  I keep my paper from other projects in one of the plastic scrapbooking plastic totes that hold 12x12 paper and it's running over. 
First up is a simple page using squares it page 3 in the template.  I already had the scalloped paper and just cut it down to fit the rest of my squares.
With my 8x8 pages I try to do a 2x8 and two 4x6's to finish off that page.  I had enough that I was able to piece the 2x8 page together. 

Here is the second set of pages using the scallop paper.

I added a tag to the 2x8 page and put the scallop paper in the middle. 

I ran out of scallop paper so I used regular card stock and the corner punch.  I added a tag to this page with a couple of pieces of ribbon.  I left the bottom of the tag free so that a picture can slide behind the tag.
I added the jewelry punch to this set of pages along with an epoxy sticker I had left over.

OK I have 3 pages using the same template along with 3 pages using the 2x8 and two 4x6 layout done.

As I was cleaning up I found another piece of the dream paper.  It was large enough that I could use template #6.  I used a punch on the edge of this white cardstock.

I punched several pieces of white card stock to make the borders on this set of pages.  I normally keep my white scarps of card stock for stamping sentiments.  I think I can sacrifice a few pieces for this layout. 

I kept the embellishment's to a minimum as this is another set of gift layouts that they will add their own journaling to. Out of 8 pages I only cut one sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper, everything else was in my left over paper file. 

Thanks for stopping by.
