Stamp Club

                 How to take a scrapbook page from 6x6 to a 8 1/2 x 11 to a 12x12.

If you want feel a great sense of accomplishment and don't have hours upon hour to scrapbook then a 6x6 album might just be the think for you... You can give the smaller albums a theme and with 12-20 pages you a done..... If you are at a scrapbook party and you make a 6x6 album but you scrapbook in a larger formate then I have a great solution for you of how to incorporate them to fit the size you scrapbook With the following photos and instructions below.

Finish 8 1/2 x 11 scrapbook page. I added the 6x6 page to the 8 1/2 x 11 page and added a few pictures of my family along with a addition title for the page. Smaller close up pictures are a great way to add more photos to a layout. Don't be afraid to loose the background and get close up on your subject.

Finished 12x12 scrapbook page. I laid the 81/2 x 11 scrapbook page on the 12x12 sheet of paper I wanted to use. Then I moved the finished 6x6 page over to the right edge of the larger 12x12 page. I them selected 2 larger photos of the kids and adjusted them to fit. Now I have room to add more journaling and a few more decorative elements.

This is a cute page we make at Convention I just changes out the words "You" for "US" and did a little journaling... If you haven't made an album that is small like a 8x8, 6x6 etc.. You should give it a try.. I love small albums you can give them a theme like family, B-day, Vacation, Hobbies, Graduation, Like and dislikes. Make an album all about me. It's very cathartic..  Stay tuned I will be posting news about a quarterly class that will be scrapbooking. We will complete an  small album each time we meet.
