This one came from Stuck on U Sketches and then I modified it for our Title/Font challenge over at Scrap Sisters Studio. So 2 challenges in one.
And here's my take on it. I chose to use small 2x2 photos instead of pattern paper for the left side of y layout. That way I could create a 1 pg layout yet include some great shots for our trip down to the ball park. My printer, a Lexmark, came with the option to print an album page. They give us many options to choose from. I chose to load 8 medium photos, they printed 2x3 and one 5x7 with two 4x6's. I printed 2 sheets and was done.
I had a really fun piece of baseball word paper that I used a strip of for the right border. I punched a 1 3/4" circle for my title and cut 09 with the Cricut. The border on the circle is actually 3 stars punched with my handy old Creative Memories star punch. I then detailed the stars with a white pen.
Once I cut my photos down to 2x2 I spaced them out on the mat. I try never to have a photo looking off the page. So you'll notice that all the far left photos either look right or straight ahead. If the person is looking off I'm left wondering what the heck are they looking for. It's a design trick I read somewhere and it makes sense to my eyes. So I do it. As some finishing touches I used the gel pen on a couple more stars and pop dotted them onto the layout so I had a visual triangle with the stars and the title.
I had to shift my title to the right because I didn't want it to cover up any of my little photos. This layout has become a good example of packing a lot of photos in a one page layout. There are 11, did ya count them?
