Since July 2011, in addition to the monthly kit instructions, members receive bonus page formulas. 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 2019. Ready to check out the rest?
Utilize the sketch "as is" or change it up to suit your needs. In this case, I flipped the layout to create an open space for the die cut flowers to carry across both pages.
Rotate the entire page 90 degrees to accommodate vertical vs. horizontal photos as needed.
Tricia's paper selection was perfect with photos from the Anniversary Cruise.
Pairing the same formula with different papers completely changes the look of the overall layout. Die cut and cut file leaves embellish the pages.
The grid on this formula is probably one of my favorite elements from 2019. Not only does it have space for lots of photos (up to 16!), it looks cool, too.
Even though Tricia and I both used the Falling Leaves collection for our pages, using different papers and a slightly different arrangement gives each their own individual flair. Handmade paper panels make unique mats for die cut leaf embellishments.
Not only did this layout come together easily, I was tickled to discover the globe stamp image fit the little circles perfectly!
Another great formula with tons of potential. Don't have smaller photos for the mini square mats? Create a title with die cut letters, or use them to frame other embellishments.
I don't know how Tricia does it, but I was amazed at how this grid design came together perfectly with a 1/4" border around each piece. Math is not my gift, so I'm thankful she does it for me!
If you’re looking to wipe out that paper stash, these formulas are just the ticket.
