Photo-Filled Scrapbook Pages

Hey, friends. I'm so obsessed with scrapbooking right now. It's addictive. My last post was about full page photos, and today I'm back, teaming up with Canon USA, to share ideas for filling pages with multiple photos. I love the look of scrapbook pages filled with colorful photos. There is just something about seeing lots of memories packed onto one page that's so joyful and warm to me.

Today I'm here to share some ideas for packing pages with happy memories!

I used my Canon PIXMA MG7120 printer to print the photos for these pages. I just put several 3" x 3" photos on 8.5" x 11" sheets of their semi-gloss photo paper to consolidate printing.

For this first page I used a 2" circle punch to create 20 circles. I adhered them in a grid pattern and then used a sewing machine to stitch small lines between every circle.

This page is a great solution for times when you have a lot photos you love from an event, but you don't want to end up with 20 pages. It's perfect for detail photos and would look cool paired with a full-page photo in an album.

Pocket pages! I used these square pockets to put together images from our trip to Palm Springs last year. I love mixing them with colorful patterns.

I like to journal right on my photos as much as possible. I've never been good at adding long bodies of journaling to my scrapbooks, so instead I try to add little bits here and there.

I stitched this pocket closed after I filled it with sequins. Fun!

More circles!

This time I used a larger (2 1/2") punch to make circles, and I embellished them with a few paper elements and a journaling card circle.

For this page I pieced together square photos, journaled on them, and added a bunch of enamel dots to give it texture and color.

Supply source list: Enamel Dots, Patterned Papers, Sequins, Photo-Safe Pens.

And this last page is a pocket page layout made with one big photo. If you don't have a wide format printer, and you want to fill a page with one giant photo, you can print it on more than one piece of paper, and then piece it together in the pocket pages! I love the look of these big, broken-up photos.

Now who's in the mood to scrapbook? I know how I'm spending this next weekend. :) xo! Elsie
