It’s Hip To Be Square…Or Of A Rectangular Nature.

Photo templates are one of my favorite scrapbooking tools. They make placing a handful of photos together a cinch. And me, with my love for straight lines and all, adore all things clean–the kind of clean that a template can provide with multiple photos. In other words, you can get a lot of images on a page, without it looking cluttered.

So that’s why I’m so excited that today’s sale is on Photo Templates!

Now, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!

One of our sweet creative team members is a huge fan of using photo templates and uses them a lot. That would be our Miss Laura. And that’s who’s with us today! Now, while she didn’t happen to use a photo template for her project (what?? ;) ), the 4×6 template with 6, 2″ squares in Snapshots #3 or the 6×8 template with 12, 2″ squares from Half Pints #1 would be perfect for this too. Take a look and you’ll see just what I mean.

So much to love about these two spreads. Love the idea of showing the art of all that you love to watch. I did that with a montage of tv shows growing up too. Love all the little details going on…white on white…hello!

Let’s hear what Laura has to say about these two spreads.

I’ve had this idea to create a 6×8″ All About Me album for quite a while, but have never taken the time to get it started. Sure, I do some layouts about myself here and there. But I wanted to have a place to record a variety of different things about myself, at this point in my life. Whether those things are serious, funny, or just plain random. Kerri has so many words, phrases, and shapes that have always caught my eye, knowing they would work great for an album like this. I figured I had better get started on this album now, so that it will hopefully motivate me to add a few pages here and there over the next few months.

I will most likely create pages very randomly for this album, and that’s exactly how I got myself started. I browsed thru Kerri’s shapes for a few minutes, and went with a few of the first things that I came across. Ever since seeing the cute little television that is part of The History Project class, I knew it would be perfect for documenting some of my favorite TV shows. I looked online to find logos for my favorite shows, making sure to find ones that could also be cropped into squares, knowing I would be using a divided page protector with 2″ pockets. It was a pure coincidence that I managed to find so many photos with the same color scheme! I have a TON of favorite shows, so I ended up adding in an additional divided page protector, and trimming off one row of photos, making it a 4×8″ protector. I love the look of different sized pages mixed into these small albums.

When I came across the “keep it real” cut in Kerri’s Something to Say kit, it gave me the idea to record a few “real” tidbits about myself and my life. I think oftentimes, without intentionally trying, we can give off the illusion that our lives are a bit more perfect that they really are. So this was a chance to “keep it real” and write down a few things that others may not realize about me and/or my life. If you get up close and really, really look, there are plenty of things about me that are “real”, no matter how hard I try to come off like I have it all together.

Fantastic job and fantastic idea Laura!

    Totally love Laura’s work…and this is no exception! Awesome idea :D

    Question for you Kerri…any chance you can make a cut file from the flowers on the “[inter]National scrapbook day” Title on your blog?? LOL I just thought they were very cool! I’m in love with that color combo right now too!

      Sorry, but I can’t. It’s stock art and I can’t use it that way. :)
      Chances are you’ll see something along those lines available as a printable-only though, like on a Project Life card.

    LOVE the TV show idea and I see a bunch in there that I want (ugh I watch too many)!…any idea where they got those pages from? I love seeing ways to use your shapes and stamps!

    What a great idea! Love the TV show mini squares. I am afraid I could create a whole book about what I watch. Scary!
