Layout Formulas--Are you using this membership benefit?

Karen Wyngaard

There's no question, efficient scrapbooking with Tricia's assembly line method is awesome! The popularity of our layout (and card) formulas is evident: We are nearly sold out of five different volumes of Idea Decks, each containing 52 unique card or page formulas. And folks are still hungry for more!


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 using papers from your stash. This is one of the most under-utilized tools we offer our members. I'd like to change that!


Now that a new year has begun, members have until February 15 to download the 2017 layout formulas. After that, they move to our digital store as a download: Twelve layout formulas for $5.95. To demonstrate the value in these beauties, I'm sharing images of all twelve formulas, along with sample pages made using the instructions.

Don't have the right size photos to fit the smaller mats? Trim your pics to stretch across two or more. The results? Perfect!

Tricia's formulas include unique touches, such as split mat in the center of the layout. Circle shapes are a fun addition, too, creating the perfect home for a few simple embellishments.

These pages feature a whopping eleven photos. That is how you get photos in your albums, my friends!

Tricia strives to feature multiple photos per page. Occasionally, there's still space available for extra un-matted photos. In the example below, she added one to the left page, and two more on the right.

The formulas offer so much versatility. In the sketch above, mat "C" is a great home for a larger focal photo, however, Tricia placed two vertical photos in that space instead.

I hope I've convinced you how useful and valuable the layout formulas truly are. Stop back tomorrow as I share six more formulas and sample pages. Not a member? We can fix that. Or visit our digital store to purchase page formulas from past years.

Happy scrapping!SaveSave
