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.
