This summer I’ve been turning to my 6×6 paper pads for die cutting (as I always have), but also to scrapbook layouts as well. Here’s a simple page I created using layered 6×6 papers to create a kind of mat under my photo:
I like to use strips of the paper too – so often I don’t need a paper to go all the way across. If I do? Some patterns you can fake it by strategically placing something over the seam – or some patterns it doesn’t even visibly show if you line it up well.
I’m really loving deep blues + browns lately, and I painted this stenciled image above before I placed anything on my page. This is a big reason I lay out my page, THEN glue stuff down. Just in case I need to place something down under everything else!
I challenge you to use your 6×6 paper pads on your next layout. Or, if you don’t have any – consider a 6×6 paper pad instead of 12×12 collection to save money and try something new! They’re not just for cards and small projects, that’s for sure.
