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