Even More 8 1/2 X 11 Pages


The Story

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.

  1. LOVE all of these pages! The papers you chose are right on and I remember starting out doing 8 1/2 X 11 pages – and you’re right. They ARE easier to work with!
