For this layout I decided to document a recent scrapbooking retreat event I went to in Australia. I had a lovely time and took many photos. The lots of photos theme on the blog this week was the perfect opportunity to document a handful of the many photos that I had taken.
To create this layout I decided to stick to a circular design. I had recently invested in a large circle punch which I was itching to have a play with. I used the punch, which is about 2″ in size to punch out 6 of the photos I had printed. I printed the photos at wallet size making the 2″ punch the perfect size for these photos. To begin this page I scattered the photos in a vertical arrangement down the page. I then used my manual die cutting machine and nested circle dies to cut out lots of circles from 4″ strips of selected patterned papers in the Take me Away collection.
Once I had a bundle of the circles I began matting the circles either behind the photos or in a clustered design continuing them down the page to compliment the vertical design I had created.
As I sifted through the embellishments I had for this collection I noticed the veneer pack also had some circular pieces within the designs. So I decided to incorporate and feature the veneer on this page too. I love the lightness of this veneer and also the pop of colour that they bring to the page.
The gold and white phrase thickers in this collection are absolutely stunning. The text ‘fabulous weekends’ was perfect for this page however I found the fabulous to be too large for the space I had left for the title. So I adapted the ‘fabulous’ with some American Crafts Thickers in my stash which suited the page better.
The vertical strips down either edge of the page serve the purpose of bringing your attention back into the focal point of the photos. I added some machine stitching along the strips also to add further detail.
This layout design was such an easy way to add multiple photos to a page and to document such a special memory.
I hope this has provided you with a fun and easy to achieve multi photo layout design that you can complete at home.
