    • Use One Digital Template on a Two-Page Scrapbook Layout

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 215

      How she used it: Melissa rotated the collage 90 degrees counterclockwise and trimmed the template to bridge the page divide.

      Make the layout: Colorful papers trade places on the two scrapbook pages--the orange version is on top on one page and on the bottom on the other. This helps guide your eye through the design.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Prism Papers. Patterned paper: Provo Craft. Font: Century Gothic. Chipboard accents: Fancy Pants Designs (letters), Imagination Project (flowers). Ink: Tsukineko.

    • Fill Blocks with Patterned Paper

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 101

      How she used it: On the left scrapbook page Melissa merged two blocks for the orange patterned-paper rectangle. She rotated and flipped the template for the right page.

      Make the layout: Coordinating patterned-paper pieces fill the empty spaces on Melissa's photo collage, and three patterns combine to create an eye-catching background

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Prism Papers. Patterned paper: Scenic Route Paper Co. (green), October Afternoon (blue grid), Sassafras Lass (funky stripe), Sonburn (orange), KI Memories (light blue). Font: Century Gothic. Stickers: Making Memories (white letters), Creative Imaginations (flowers, "fun"). Rub-ons: Doodlebug Design.

    • Frame a Photo with Chipboard

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 113

      How she used it: Rotating the template 90 degrees clockwise allowed Melissa to use a large vertical photo and three smaller horizontals.

      Make the layout: A chipboard frame highlights the main photo on the right scrapbook page. Melissa kept the white border around the photo on the left scrapbook page to connect it with the photo collage.

    • Extend Elements Beyond the Photo Collage

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 206 (left page), Quick Collage 213 (right page)

      How she used them: Melissa replaced the long horizontal photo block on the left page with a strip of cardstock housing her title. She rotated the right-page photo collage 180 degrees, then filled in the middle photo space on the right scrapbook page photo collage with a journaling block.

      Make the layout: Melissa had dramatic shots from a trip to Kansas City, so she showcased them in a photo collage that has room for both big and little pictures. To move outside sometimes limiting box shapes, she trimmed her title and journaling pieces so they extend to the background of her scrapbook page.

    • Resize Photo Collage Templates

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 102

      How she used it: Even though she's an 8-1/2x11" scrapbooker, Melissa found a spot for a square photo collage on her scrapbook layout. On her right-hand scrapbook page she shrank the collage to 8x8", allowing it to fit with borders at the top and bottom. Melissa left the center block open for journaling but filled the rest with photos.

      Make the layout: Eager to use a set of big jolly rub-ons, Melissa allowed extra space for a playful title. She helped her journaling block stand out by placing it at an angle.

    • Rotate and Flip Photo Collages

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 202 (left page), Quick Collage 210 (right page)

      How she used them: Looking for a great spot for a focal photo, Melissa created a photo collage with an open space in the middle of her grouping. That's where she placed the grinning shot of her son. She rotated the left-page photo collage 180 degrees and flipped the right-page photo collage to create a two-page scrapbook layout that fits together well.

      Make the layout: Faced with busy photos and a long story, Melissa toned down the colors by sticking to light blue and pink for all her papers and embellishments.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Prism Papers. Font: Typo (date) by Two Peas in a Bucket, Century Gothic (journaling). Patterned paper: Scenic Route Paper Co. Chipboard heart: KI Memories. Stickers: Doodlebug Designs (small), Reminisce (large).

    • Mat Photo Collages on Solid Cardstock

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 115 (left page), Quick Collage 116 (right page)

      How she used them: Melissa filled nearly all of the available blocks with photos, leaving only one open on her right-hand scrapbook page, which she later filled with journaling.

      Make the layout: By mounting both photo collages on black cardstock, Melissa was able to pump up the background with dramatic striped paper.

    • Stagger Photo Collages on Two-Page Scrapbook Layouts

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 104 (left page), Quick Collage 105 (right page)

      How she used them: Melissa filled all the photo blocks on the right-page photo collage and all but one on the left to maximize her scrapbook pages' real estate

      Make the layout: By staggering the photo collages on the two scrapbook pages (the left-hand grouping is lower than the right), Melissa left room on the top and bottom for a long title. To make letter stickers really stand out (especially on a busy page), place them on cardstock and trim them into blocks.

    • Embellish Around the Photo Collage

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 206

      How she used it: For perfect balance every time, simply flip your photo collage from one page to the next as Melissa did. This works especially well when you have a large shot on each photo collage that will guide your eye from one scrapbook page to the other.

      Make the layout: While Melissa often leaves room for journaling within the photo collage, this time she packed every inch with photos and used the borders of the scrapbook pages for her text and embellishments.

      Leave Room for Journaling

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 213 (left page), Quick Collage 216 (right page)

      How she used it: Melissa filled both pages of her photo collage with shots of her daughter on a snowy day. She left a few blocks open on each template, keeping the collages from becoming too busy.

      Make the layout: Like a photo collage but don't have the right amount of photos? No problem. Melissa combined two lower-left openings for a single journaling block on her left-hand scrapbook page.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Prism Papers. Patterned paper: Heidi Grace Designs. Font: Century Gothic. Stickers: American Crafts. Rub-on: Heidi Swapp. Chipboard accents: Technique Tuesday (snowflakes), Heidi Swapp (circle, brackets). Jewels: Doodlebug Design.

      Trim Off Part of the Photo Collage

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 204 (left page), Quick Collage 205 (right page)

      How she used them: The photo collage Melissa used for her left-hand scrapbook page actually has room for five elements. She trimmed off the bottom two, leaving spots for three favorite photos. She flipped the right photo collage and filled in two of the blocks with one solid piece of journaling.

      Make the layout: When you have a big story to tell, use a medium-size photo collage opening for it. Melissa made hers stand out even more by printing it on tan cardstock, which matches some of her scrapbook page embellishments.

      Fill Small Template Openings with Imperfect Photos

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 112 (left page), Quick Collage 114 (right page)

      How she used them: Melissa flipped the left-page photo collage, and then used patterned paper and cardstock to fill in empty blocks in her photo collages--allowing her to easily work in the spring theme.

      Make the layout: Not-so-perfect shots can still be great scrapbook page fodder--just use them in smaller sizes as Melissa did on her right-hand scrapbook page. Fun dotted lines as well as a few adorable birds make the rounds throughout Melissa's layout. The repeated elements help guide your eye through the scrapbook page design.

       

      SOURCES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper. Patterned paper: Making Memories (stripe, floral), Sandylion (chicks). Stickers: Sandylion (small chick), Making Memories (white letters). Rub-ons: American Crafts (script letters), Die Cuts with a View (stitched scrolls). Punches: EK Success.

      Frame the Collage with Photo Corners and Cardstock

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 113 (left page), Quick Collage 208 (right page)

      How she used them: A large red title block replaces a large photo on the left page of Melissa's scrapbook layout. Two other blocks are replaced by journaling and an embellishment, with both of those elements breaking the structure of the photo collage. She rotated the left photo collage 90 degrees clockwise, flipped it, and then rotated the right photo collage 90 degrees counterclockwise before resizing it as a rectangle.

      Make the layout: Melissa used photo corners and strips of blue cardstock to frame her photo collage. The colors in the photos were so bright that simple accents were all she needed to create an eye-catching scrapbook layout.

      Embellish Photo Collages with Paper Piecings

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 213 (left page), Quick Collage 206 (right page)

      How she used them: To create a cohesive scrapbook layout, Melissa flipped both photo collages. She snuck two paper-pieced snowmen into her photo collage, filling in the blocks with her own seasonal embellishments. She altered the space in between blocks, changing it from white to a blue that better matched her layout.

      Make the layout: Two patterns of paper create the scrapbook page background, coordinating with the blue in Melissa's photo collage.

      Extend Scrapbook Page Titles Beyond the Photo Collage

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 112 (left page), Quick Collage 114 (right page)

      How she used them: The large horizontal photo of two costumed kids immediately sets the tone for the scrapbook layout. Melissa flipped both of the photo collages so the two scrapbook pages would balance better.

      Make the layout: Instead of strictly adhering to the template, she made her title element separate and let it bleed off the photo collage. Melissa combined two smaller photo spots to create a single large journaling block and filled in some photo blocks with colorful patterned paper.

      Frame Digital Template Blocks with Patterned-Paper Strips

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 203

      How she used it: Melissa let her photo collages dominate the scrapbook pages, filling them with patterned paper and photos of her son's artwork. To create a more balanced design, she flipped the photo collage on the right scrapbook page, creating mirrored pages.

      Make the layout: Strips of patterned paper accent the different blocks in the photo collage, creating artistic frames. Melissa matted the photo collages on plain black cardstock to let her son?s work speak for itself.

      Use a Photo Collage Twice on a Two-Page Scrapbook Layout

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 113

      How she used it: Melissa used the photo collage as is on the left scrapbook page, then rotated and flipped it for the right one.

      Make the layout: Patterned paper, stickers, and a chipboard accent stand out as the sole embellishments on Melissa's scrapbook layout. She backed her photo collages with festive green paper and filled in the empty spaces on her photo collages with complementary red patterned paper and journaling stickers.

      Fill Digital Template Blocks with Theme Patterned Papers

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 103

      How she used it: Melissa left the photo collage in its original format for the left scrapbook page but flipped and rotated it for the right scrapbook page, allowing her to keep a balanced scrapbook layout while mixing up the photo orientation.

      Make the layout: Cardstock strips create a fun frame for the festive scrapbook pages. A few holiday-theme papers fill in blocks on the photo collage and are embellished with chipboard accents.

      Vary Sizes of Similar Photos

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Templates: Quick Collage 112 (left page), Quick Collage 114 (right page)

      How she used them: All but one of the blocks is filled with photos. Using the different-size blocks allows similar photos to be used without feeling repetitive.

      Make the layout: Melissa united her photo collages and background papers with large circles and rub-on letters that connect the two pieces. By including a series of shots in almost sequential order, Melissa was able to capture the fun of her kids' play without including much journaling.

      Combine Multiple Digital Template Openings with Embellishments

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 101

      How she used it: Melissa kept the left scrapbook page similar to the original template, modifying it only to expand the smaller block with the "Giggles & Grins" embellishment. For the second scrapbook page, she rotated the photo collage 90 degrees counterclockwise and combined three blocks to create one solid piece of patterned paper embellished with the phrase "Live it up."

      Make the layout: To create the scalloped border around her collage, Melissa trimmed the edges of a 12x12" scallop-edge sheet and pieced the strips together around the collages.

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 203

      How she used it: Melissa filled 11 of the 16 blocks with photos, leaving five free for the title, journaling, and other embellishments.

      Make the layout: Melissa framed the pages of her collage with multicolor scallops and accented them with trios of rubber buttons. Word stickers fill in empty spaces, maximizing all the real estate on her scrapbook pages.

      Fill a Photo Collage with Black-And-White and Color Photos

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Template: Quick Collage 114

      How she used it: Melissa merged the two center blocks and covered them with a strip of patterned paper. The rest of the photo collage she filled with a mix of black-and-white and color photos.

      Make the layout: Melissa paired her photo collage with a page displaying only one 5x7" photo. This helped balance the two pages and left room for a title and journaling.
