Graphic 45 Catch of the Day isn’t just for fishing, it works perfectly with my photos from the New England Aquarium.
This layout is one if my favorite styles that I call a 5-7 layout, because one strip of paper is 5 inches wide and the other 7 inches. I pieced them together on a light weight piece of 12x12 white cardstock, then placed a strip of paper over the seam. It’s an easy way to get your own custom look.
Getting LOTS of Photos on a Scrapbook Layout
One of the reasons I like this style of layout so much is that it has a large area for photos. As you can tell I snapped a lot of pictures at the aquarium, so it was hard to pick just a couple.
Printed my photos in a two different smaller sizes, them arranged them like a collage on the 7 inch side of my layout.
One BIG Graphic 45 Embellishment Cluster
Another of my favorite things about this style of layout is that it creates the perfect spot for one big embellishments cluster.
When I have lots of photos on a layout I like to keep the embellishments a bit on the simple side. One large cluster of embellishments has big visual impact, without distracting from my photos. And after all aren’t the photos the star of any layout.
Creating One Big Embellishment Cluster
When I make a vertical embellishment cluster like this one I place the journal spot first. It’s the largest element in the embellishment cluster, so it has lots of visual weight.
Love the postcard pack that is part of the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day collection, because the postcards make perfect journal spots.
After the journal spot is in place I work out from there adding die cuts and stickers. Sometimes I over lap the paper covering the seam, but this time I tucked everything under.
The Graphic 45 Catch of the Day collection is so fun to scrapbook with. Love all the aquatic elements that work so well with my photos from the aquarium.
