Outside Pals // 12x12 Summer Layout Share11:00:00 AM
Hello folks and welcome back for more inspiration! Today I am sharing a multi photo layout. Now, I know there is a huge trend to use smaller photos like 3" x 4" and even 2" x 2" photos on a layout and to be quite honest, I'm not that into it. I almost always print my photos as 4" x 6". It's easier, it simplifies the process, and I can always cut them down a little bit. So, hopefully you like 4" x 6" photos too and this can help you come up with some more unique ideas for layouts!
This layout uses papers strictly from the DCWV The Spring Stack. I begged my father to purchase this ginormous paper stack for me years ago when I was still in middle school and it still torments me today. It's 180 sheets of paper that I will never be able to use up. I'm slowly chipping away at it, but I also have a shopping problem, so that doesn't help. So, for this layout I cut some strips and placed them above and below the photos. I really like this combo of the green, orange, and blue. I don't use orange that much, but maybe I'll start using it more.
I don't have much clustering on this layout because it had so much going on, it didn't really need too many embellishments. For this cluster I sued a cut apart from the paper stack that said "fun", a diamond border sticker from October Afternoon, a plastic heart that matches the title, and a little label from Elles Studio. I used my Avery Elle tiny alphabet to stamp out their names in Staz-on ink.
These plastic alphas are actually from Recollections. They are a really interesting and fun medium to work with. I wish I had more plastic pieces to play with! I mimicked the bottom right cluster with a similar, simplified cluster in the top left. Since these photos of my cat and my boyfriend were taken outside of my house the "home" cut apart was a cute little addition.
To complete this rather simple layout, I added one more sticker which is a simple tab from Jot that says "noted". A lot of people underestimate what the dollar store may have for scrapbooking supplies, but this sticker that I got from there is so cute! I hope you enjoyed this really simple summery layout using a lot of photos. Thanks for stopping by! Let me know in the comments if it is starting to turn into Autumn where you are! :)
