12 x 12, 8.5 x 11, 6 x12 and 12x6, even business card and hockey card page protectors. I am not careful about what shows behind a smaller page, or if the colors clash or compliment - i love the randomness of it all.
An embarassingly long time ago, I had these photos printed into 8 x 12 size, and realized that I didn't really want to make three separate pages about my son and/or autumn, all taken at about the same time. So:
I cut one in half and put all three of them on two 12 x 12 sheets of cardstock to make a two page layout. Kind of cool, hey? It makes a big impact in your scrapbook. There are loads of photo printing options at the store of course, and I am a big fan of the 12 x 12 print too. I think this would be cool - to have just one image printed on a 12 x 24 and then cut it in half for your album (as long as you aren't cutting through a face or the focal point of your photo). I am going to find an image to do this with.
Ok, back to the previous layout - I had more photos that I had wanted to include somehow, so I cropped them all into a hockey card page protector and trimmed a third of it off because I didn't need all the spaces
Kind of difficult to show in pictures - one of those things you have to see with your hands. When my family looks at the album, they can take out the little middle page and see the whole layout if they want - more good old interactive fun with photos. Lynette has loads and loads of different sized page protectors at the store and D-ring albums if you are interested in trying out some new shapes and sizes. I think it's very liberating and can help get you out of a creative rut, should you be in one. There are NO RULES in this awesome hobby! Even the ones you make for yourself can be broken :)
Goes with the templates that I mentioned yesterday. Comes with 6 Bazzill colours, 8 yards per colour, 2 needles. Colour-matched to coordinate with Bazzill Basics Paper cardstock colours.
Specifically manufactured for use with paper. Won't leave dust when sewn through cardstock.
Woven, natural fiber thread won't separate or shred while sewing.
In Stitch'z Scrapbooking Floss is perfect for a personal handmade touch to any scrapbooking layout or greeting card.

Here is a shot of the book we will be creating. We will use Bella BLVD. Swing into Spring paper. This is an acrylic album so you will also learn how to plan and layer pages.
This book will also be ready for anyone going to Spring crop. This would be an easy project to finish there exspecially if you take your photos this week and have them ready to take with you.
All photos are 2x3 and horizontal. For Sunday you will need 4 to 8, 4 photos for Monday and Tuesday, 4 or 5 photos for Wednesday and Thursday, and 4 photos for Friday and Saturday.
You have a couple of weeks so get busy and take those pictures! See you in class!

OK! I'm feeling inspired to make something. Now...I need a layout upon which I can sew...
So I started here with a simple sewn border - very subtle, but still noticeable and keeps the eye from wandering off the page:
And then I found a package of older Making Memories product and decided to use the tags as a border - no glue, just sewed 'em on.
And then zipped a messy border around the photo and diecuts:
And for the last one, I was looking at my copious supply of Bazzil borders, and had a brain wave:
a layered "snow look" for a page about our first time skiing with our two oldest boys last spring.
I didn't glue any of the borders either - just started stitchin! Hope you have some time to scrapbook this weekend, and maybe you'll pull out that sewing machine a try a few stitches on some projects. Once you start, you'll want to sew on every layout you create. I'm not kidding.
Available in regular and also Ultra Fine. Ultra fine gives crafters the ability to use the 3D-effect product on much more detailed, finer designs for added creativity and versatility!
Many colour options available including solid and mixed. Come by and check them out today!

I put together a couple of layouts using those journaling notes as partial mattes for my photos. Maybe I can give you some ideas on using up your extras.
On the layout I used 3 pages to matte my photo and a 4th to make the pleated strip and the piece at the top of my page.
The stickers are all 7 Gypsies from their travel line.
