august scrap again!

today i am going to share my august layouts for scrap again.  you will likely notice they all look similar.  i started out by making this layout:


i loved this layout.  but, i thought, "how can i provide inspiration for the ladies at the crop?  many of them are 12x12, 2 page, multi photo scrappers."  so, i "lifted" myself and made 2 more layouts to show how you could take the original 8.5x11 layout and make 12x12 layouts with more than one photo.  so... let's get started.

so, for this layout, i spread it out to 2 pages and added a couple of photos.  you could even use up some of the white space & add another photo in there.  i kept the photo strips and rearranged some of the embellishments. 

for the last layout i went with a single 12x12 layout.  i kept the strips again, but switched it up to more boy-ish product (the october afternoon rocket age collection).  i move the journaling to the bottom and the title next to the photos. 


 lastly, i made a card.  same principle with strips of pattern paper.
i hope this has encouraged you to look at layouts differently and see what you can use to inspire you!
