April Bonus Formula

Layout Sketch

Create a well-balanced two-page spread to showcase a minimum of twelve photos. To make the layout, gather five coordinating 12x12 papers. Follow the trimming instructions on the printable document, then assemble the pages using the sketch as a reference.

Have you noticed the updates Tricia made to the document? It's never been easier to follow the step-by-step instructions!

April Bonus Pages - Before Photos

To replicate my layout, gather the following Reef papers: Seafoam (Paper A), Card Print (B), Gold (Paper C) and two Green (Paper D).

Completed Reef Bonus Layout

This layout features photos from a whale-watching and snorkeling adventure in Huatulco, Mexico. The shades of the sea and sand coordinate perfectly with the Reef color palette.

Maximize the size of the square photos by trimming them to 2-7/8, rather than 2-3/4". Crop individual photos, or trim 4x6 photos into "pairs" to fit the mats.

A Laser Cut Shell tucks underneath the square mat in the corner.

Trim the sentiment/journaling combo portion from the border strip cutapart (Page Cutaparts); add to the bottom of the page.

There are so many ways to make these layouts your own, even after the main page elements are assembled and adhered. Rotate the right page 180 degrees from that shown in the sketch. Doing so orients the border strip at the top of the page - a perfect place for a page title created by pairing the Pack of Panels with alphabet dies.

Adding the Laser Cut Shells on both the left and right pages creates balance. Embellish the right page with a trio of shells tucked underneath the left edge of the horizontal mats.

Crop a photo to 4x5.25" to fit perfectly into the lower right corner, using the nested square mats as an anchor.

Club Scrap's clever formulas are designed to help you make even more scrapbook pages utilizing paper and supplies you already own.
