6x6 layouts

I think 6x6 pages are probably my favorite size to scrap.
The photo seems to easily stay the focus.
I don't need to find loads of things to fill my space.
& they are super quick to put together.

Back in the late spring, my fave scrap store here in Atlanta (shared about here) asked if I would be their spotlight artist for a few months. I was asked to bring several 12x12's and a project or two to share. I had this Heidi Swapp 6x6 album in a box filled with my photos & papers for over a year just waiting on me to complete. Nothing like a deadline to get your creative juices flowing!

Paige,

I just adore your scrapbook pages! They're so beautiful! Your girls will have wonderful memories to look back upon when they're older! I love the materials...the colors...the designs, the sparkles, the little pink barbie ponytail pic! Your pictures are always stunning! The colors always seem to be so vibrant!

Hope you have a blessed day!

I love you 6x6'S! I do 8x8's, but this would be great for Li Li to take to the hospital and for her little hands. Thanks for sharing that :D

I was just in that little shop and I know why it is your favorite :D Such a cool place to go! That is awesome that they are spotlighting you - I can see why :D

Ladybug hugs,

Just beautiful work, Paige! LOVE IT! I enjoy that little section of the Highlands too from your last post. Husband and I ate at Neighbors Pub across the street last time because the Belly store was closed when we went. Have you ever been to the Irwin Street Market a few blocks over from there? A great little art/market place with yummy cupcakes also!

Chris and Deb said...

I love this book! The layouts are beautiful - I love the 'Wild Asparagus' frames. I've done mini's and 12x12 (and 8 1/2 x 11 in the olden days) but I've never done a 6x6. Thanks for the inspiration! Now if I could just take pictures as nice as yours!

Thank you so much for sharing this inspiring post~ maybe it will get my creative juices flowing???

I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog and really admire your beautiful photography. Your album is precious! I noticed that you had embellishments on the outside of the page protectors; I've never thought to do that. What do you use to adhere them?

Lisa said...

Every pages is prettier than the last. What a fun mini album. Beautiful project.

Roxanne said...

Oh. My. Word. I just love that little book. I want to make one! Was it a whole kit? Just an album! The colors you pick out, as always, are perfect. The fact that the pictures are so good make it beautiful too. It really is well done. I haven't been the scrapbook store that you mentioned. But I will have to check it out now for sure. I usually go to the one over here on Mt. Vernon in Dunwoody. I too always love coming to your blog. It makes me smile... inside and out : )

That is one of the 'cutest' albums I have seen yet. It was awesome. It actually made me want to leave work right now and go home and 'create'. Well done and thanks for sharing it with us.
