Create a Patriotic Scrapbook Layout - Three Different Ways!

Are you a scrapbooker? What's your format? Are you a pocket page girl? An 8.5x11 album maker? Or do you pull out the BIG sheets and you go 12x12 all the way? There are so many options, and we all tend to have our preferences. Today, I'd like to share ONE basic scrapbook layout with you - but created three different ways. Maybe you'll even be inspired to try a new shape or size you've never done before!

Pocket Page
First up, a pocket page. Fun Stampers Journey has DARLING 6x8 albums and pocket pages that are co-branded with Simple Stories. I tend to print my photos 2x3, because they feel less overwhelming to me, and take up less space - so I popped those photos into the 4-pocket page and then I had two extra pockets to fill with goodies. Embellishing a pocket page is kind of like creating small handmade cards, that all coordinate with each other. I love the way this page turned out!

8.5x11 layout
Next up - here's one for you 8.5x11 scrapbookers. I simply took my four pockets of goodness, and transferred them to an 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock. I did mat them on white, before the full sheet of blue, but how EASY is that!? The simple grid format can be applied to any size layout. I did add an extra red star and some sparkle tape to the bottom right corner to finish it off.

12x12 Layout
And now, last but certainly not least - let's go BIG. For this 12x12 layout, I took my whole 8.5x11 layout and put it onto a 12x12 piece of white cardstock. I added some stamped fireworks to the background,  a strip of striped printed paper plus two more stars. (Love that visual triangle with the three red stars.)

Sometimes when we look at scrapbook layouts in magazines or online, we look for ideas that fit exactly the shape or size we need. When you see scrapbooking inspiration you love, make it work for you even if it isn't exactly what you think you need! And hey - maybe live on the wild side and try a new shape or size of layouts you've never done before! So tell me, which is YOUR favorite style? Is there something you're afraid to try? Do you create in all the sizes?!
