2012 Layout by Stacey Michaud using Tell Your Story

Ever heard the saying that change is good?  When it comes to all things creative, I would have to agree.  Change and exploration keep our scrapbooking fresh and fun!  I recently changed up the size of the pages I worked on and was really pleased with the process and results.

I am typically a 12X12 scrapper.  I love white space and multiple photos.  But, I decided to try out 8.5 X 11.  I won't lie...it seems small.  I think there are ways to make the shift easier.  First, I started out with a smaller photo, sized around 3.5 X 2.5.  That allows some white space.  Next, I grabbed some of my favorite embellishments from Teresa's new collection, Tell Your Story.  The right placement and layering of elements make the smaller size fun to work with.

Even though I worked with a smaller size paper, I think some bold elements are needed to add pop.  The handcut banners from the paper named Pennants.  Because these were placed on the top, I used a dark title and placed my photo close to the bottom.

To anchor the photo, I used one of the the Tell Your Story stamps and put the photo to the right.  I layered a library card cut from the Cards paper and clustered the brad and chipboard piece.  My title was floating in the air so I used a piece of the washi tape underneath. 

Don't you love these colors...fresh and fun!
