Two Page Tuesday: The 7-Photo Scrapbook Layout

The Get It Scrapped! assignment: Make a one or two-page layout with 7 photos. This page is about my dad showing his grandsons how to fly a kite. Who knew these high school and college kids had no idea how to get a kite airborne?



To create this 2-page layout, I arranged the photos and journaling on the first page, then flipped the design for the second page.


There is not one focal point photo. Instead, the first page shows the boys unsuccessfully trying to fly their kite and on the second page, it's grandpa to the rescue!

Patterned Paper: American Crafts, Pebbles 
Alphabets: Bella Blvd.
Stickers: American Crafts
Mini Pearls: Doodlebug


I used my Silhouette to cut this kite border. On a layout with this many photos, I tend to go light on the patterned paper and embellishments.


You can see more 7-photo layouts in the article here. Are you a multi-photo scrapper? What are the challenges you face when using multiple photos on a scrapbook page? (perhaps I could address some of your concerns in a future blog post...)

  12. Seven photos? wow, that would be a challenge for me - you are one talented multi photo scrapper! Your page about kites has got me thinking too. My Mum taught me to fly a kite when I was little, so I taught my kids and they still talk about the day we did it. Funny the things that make an impression, isn't it?

    Happy New Year Sue! I love the look of your blog plans for 2013
