Since July 2011, in addition to the monthly kit instructions, members receive one bonus page formula each month. Each formula creates a two-page spread, and can be made using any paper from your stash. I lovingly refer to these gems as "stash-busters"!
Yesterday I shared finished layouts created using the page formulas from the first half of the year. Check out the pages below made using the remaining six formulas!
2018 PAGE FORMULAS AND SAMPLES
I used this same formula with Delft papers to create a graduation layout. Notice how a vertical 5x7 covers two horizontal mats on the left page? If you're lacking photos for the smallest mats, substitute journaling, stamped art, sentiments or embellishments.
One formula, two ways! I reimagined the three smaller mats on the right layout as card catalog drawers for these photos of my daughter, the book lover. Don't be afraid to mix up the trimmed elements or change the orientation to suit your needs!
We liked the August bonus formula so much, we also used it for a Make 'n Take for expos earlier this year. Visit this blog post for even more inspiration!
The Tapestry Page Formula has space for a whopping thirteen photos and uses just five sheets of paper!
I shared another variation on my personal blog, using the medallion cut file as an embellishment.
The October formula uses just four sheets of paper! Tricia did a bit of rearranging to accommodate her photos.
Julie also created a layout with this formula. Just switching out the papers and photos gives it a different look.
Seventeen photos? Amazing! I can totally see photo booth-style images on those nine squares. Wouldn't that be fun?
I just love how Tricia was able to incorporate stenciling and stamping in this layout. Perfection!
So if you're looking to wipe out that paper stash, these formulas are just the ticket.
