Hi guys! Today I’m sharing a scrapbook layout I made and it’s my first time doing an 8.5 x 11 page. I usually do 12 x 12 pages but I recently discovered these smaller pages and I love how they look. Most of the layouts that draw my attention are simple and clean looking so that’s the look I went for on this page.
I found some pictures I took on a family trip to Chama, New Mexico in 2013. I had taken these pictures of AJ outside of our cabin with the continuous shooting mode on my Sony camera.
I decided to go for a geometric-type layout because those type of designs really catch my eye. I created a simple layout in Adobe Photoshop because I wanted to plan it out first instead of just putting something together like I usually do.
Once I got the layout figured out, I cut out the triangles with my Cricut and added different background paper to each cut-out. I also used my Cricut to cut out the sentiment and I added some gold letter stickers and wood stars from Studio Calico.
I typed out my “journaling” and cut it out in strips. At the end I added a couple of strips to the top of the page with my sewing machine since I had such a big empty space at the top.
I really love how the page came out and I think I am going to stick to these 8.5 x 11 pages from now on! I hope you guys enjoyed!
