8x8 paper pads aren’t just for cards and mini albums - they can be used on 12x12 layouts like this one.
Using a Graphic 45 8x8 Paper Pad on a 12x12 Scrapbook Layout
I love to have lots of layers of paper on my scrapbook layouts, so 8x8 paper pads are perfect for that use.
On this scrapbook layout I selected a 12x12 solid paper from the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day Patterns and Solids paper pad to use as the background, then layered two sheets from the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day 8x8 paper pad to make and interesting backdrop for my photos.
Creating the Page Title
I like to have a title on each of my scrapbook pages, but it’s totally up to you if you include one.
Graphic 45 has it’s own distinctive color pallet, so I decided to cut my title using an alphabet die set and a sheet of paper from the G45 Catch of the Day Patterns and Solids paper pad. Just a touch of glue, and my title is in place.
Add a Place to Journal
Next I selected this 4x6 card from the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day journaling card set as my journal spot for this layout.
There wasn’t an exact match of the Cape Cod Chips logo in the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day collection, but I think this one is pretty close.
Adding Embellishment Clusters
A couple embellishment clusters finish off this scrapbook layout.
In this cluster I layered a few of stickers from the G45 Catch of the Day collection.
This embellishment cluster sits above the journal spot and is a combination of stickers and die cuts from the collection.
This embellishment cluster is also a mix of Catch of the Day stickers and die cuts. Did you notice that I kept the embellishment clusters pretty simple? That’s because the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day has such complex patterns on it, so I find keeping the embellishment clusters simple works best.
It’s been so much fun sharing these scrapbook layouts with you. This is the last of my three layouts using the Graphic 45 Catch of the Day collection. It’s a fun collection to work with. I’ll be back again in July to share more paper crafting with you. In the meantime check out my Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook pages to see other projects I’m creating.
