How to Make a Three Photo Scrapbook Layout using Graphic 45 Farmhouse

Hi everyone, Penny here! This month I was so happy to play with the Graphic 45 Farmhouse I Want It All Bundle from FotoBella.

Today I’m going to show you how to make a three photo scrapbook page with various size photos. It’s super easy and helps to cut down on all those photos you need to scrapbook.

Let’s Get Started

I started my layout by selecting 3 different photos. I left one photo in the standard 4 x 6 size, then I cut the other two photos down to fit the smaller areas that were left on my page. Then I choose my paper from this Graphic 45 12x12 Patterns & Solids Paper Kit.

My next step, was to mount my 4 x 6 photo onto more of the Farmhouse collection, and add the photo corners. Then, I placed another piece of the Graphic 45 pattern paper collection under the photo. (Remember to add your photo corners to your accent pieces prior to gluing them down) I didn’t glue these items in place yet however, because my ribbon will go underneath this photo.

Next, I chose a cute ribbon holder from this Graphic 45-Farmhouse Die cut Assortment. All of the Graphic 45 products on this page are available at the FotoBella Online Scrapbook Store. Be sure and check them out if you are looking for brand name products at a great price.

Graphic 45 Ribbon How-To

To add this ribbon holder, first, thread the ribbon though the die cut. Then, I used brads from the Graphic 45 Collection, to hold the ribbon in place. I didn’t glue the die cut in place yet however, because I wanted to make sure it didn’t cover any of my photo placements.

Make sure your ribbon and holder doesn’t cover your next photo placement.

When adding your other accessories and photos, I suggest you lay them out prior to gluing them in place. This way you can easily move things to accommodate your other three photos. Some of my Graphic 45 elements have foam tape under them to add texture to my three photo layout.

Don’t forget to add your photo corners!

Pictured below is just a sample of the Graphic45-Farmhouse Ephemera and Journaling Cards. They are double sided and come in sizes that will also fit project life projects, or your homemade cards.

It was finally time to add my third and final photo to my three photo layout. I trimmed it down to fit the space I had left on my layout. Then, I added strips of Graphic 45 pattern paper and stickers.

Finish your Graphic 45 Layout

My final steps were to add the title alphabet stickers, and brads to my layout. Don’t be afraid to make your own three photo layout! Adding multiple photos to your layouts is a great way to help get caught up on your scrapbooking pages.

Now that my layout was complete, I needed somewhere to store my left over supplies. I also needed somewhere to store my completed layouts till I could get them into my albums. Luckily, FotoBella Online Scrapbook Store thought about that problem when they invented the FotoBella Clear Storage Box for 12x12-Paper and Projects.

This wonderful storage system is fabulous! I have purchased several of these myself, and they are perfect for keeping your paper collections together with their embellishments. It also makes scrapbooking so easy when you can store all of your items together. Be sure and stop by again to see other fun projects and ideas! Love Penny
