Family Vacation Album

Every now and then, less means more. This little album
is perfectly suited for showcasing a favorite photo or for tucking in a small remembrance from a family vacation
or other happy event. Bite-size pages allow you to focus
on one special moment that means the most to you.
Friends Forever
Creating a layout usually begins with the photo and builds from there. If the photo selected happens to be black and white, the color combinations from which to choose are limitless. Graphic in appeal and beautifully balanced, Amy Brinkman of Cloud 9 Design chose no color at all, taking the black and white color scheme to new heights. Barely visible, yet adding visual interest, are black photo corners and photo mats. Embellishments are kept to a bare minimum and consist of a single pewter brad and a small black and white check ribbon hanger.

A McGill 19⁄16" Postage Stamp Edge punch and Ecstasy Crafts small Star punch were used to create the layers
for this embellishment. A foam adhesive square was
used to adhere the top star shape onto the layered background squares for added dimension.

Double Vision
A mix of patterned paper color blocks adhered onto white cardstock beautifully coordinates with the colors in the photos on this vibrant layout. The tapered ends of two large tags were tucked beneath the top and bottom of the main photo, strengthing the focal point while providing additional balance and visual interest.
