I have always mixed up the sizes of my layouts… I get bored doing the same size pages if I do too many of them. I used to love 6×12 pages, they allowed me to get so much more use out of paper and as a patterned paper hoarder this was always seen as a great way to stretch my paper stash. I know I have no reason to stretch the stash (I have so much paper I am literally drowning in it) but it always made it easier to use that “favorite” piece of paper I only had one sheet of. For the last couple of years, however, I have been almost exclusively doing 12×12 pages. Well, this Spring I decided it was time to switch things up, so I have been doing more 8 1/2 by 11 pages. I am loving this size. I have always told people that it can take me up to 12 hours to complete a 12×12… there are so many decisions to make, little details to hide, etc… The t8 1/2 x 11 layouts are coming together MUCH quicker, which means more scrappy projects completed.
