If you know my scrapbooking style, you know that I love working with photo enlargements (and with small photos too!)
I love taking a really special picture and making it even more special by enlarging it for a scrapbooking page. I have all of my photos and enlargements printed at scrapbookpictures.com – they do a great job with processing and the prices are very reasonable (an 8.5x11 photo is $1.49). They can print your photos at about any size you want.
I have two ways that I scrapbook with photo enlargements (specifically those I have printed at 8x5x11).
This is an example of the first “technique,” where I almost use the photo as the background paper and then add on the products. On this layout, the area where I have the title and journaling is actually covering up an “imperfection” in the photo (a really ugly shoe basket I forgot to remove before we took the picture!) Supplies: Alphabet sticker – Anthology; Label Sticker – State Fair and Countryside; Woodgrain Butterfly Rub Ons - Countryside
Here is another page where I covered up part of the photo enlargement:
Supplies: Into the Woods Kit
The other “technique” I use with 8.5x11 photo enlargements is to keep the photo solo as one page and then have my title, journaling, etc. all on a second page. Here is an example of that:
Supplies: Singin’ in the Rain Kit
I really love the way the enlargements look when in the album as well, it’s just such a great way to break up the entire album.
This week I'm going to challenge you to use a photo enlargement on a layout! Post a link your page here by Monday, August 8th for your chance to win a SC GC.
