Photo Spots with Paper


Just because a digital scrapbook template might have a bunch of photo spots doesn't mean you have to use them for photo spots. You know me, I love a ton of photos on a page. 1. I love looking at all the photos. 2. I feel like I get more accomplished when I put a bunch of photos on a page. But sometimes you just have a couple of photos for an event, or you just want to focus on a photo or two, or maybe you just want to tell a story through journaling. 

You can use those extra photo spots on the template to show off some of those pretty digital papers you have. If you are anything like me you love a good digi-paper. I thought I would show you some of my pages where I use digi-paper in those extra photo spots.

This was a month in review page. I picked the template because I knew I had quite a few photos that I wanted to share from January, but I ended up not filling on the spots with photos. In came the beautiful stash of papers that came with the kit. I love all the patterns. Here's another little tip: If I end up using a lot of bright colors and patterns on my page I also tend to turn a couple photos B&W to kind of balance it out. I get the best of both worlds here: lots of photos and lots of pretty patterned paper.

With this page I used no photos. I cute story happened with my little girl, but I hadn't taken any photos of the event. I wanted to tell the story, so I why not tell it through a scrapbook page. All of the photo spots on this page were filled with journaling or patterned paper. Did you know you can turn almost any template into a photoless page? Just simply add paper and journaling to the photo spots.

With this page I only had two photos I wanted to highlight. I added some pretty Christmasy papers to the page to give it a more festive feel.

And this page was just begging for some pretty blocks to be added. I think the floral paper blocks give it a nice spring feel. It would have looked great with all photos, but this gives it a nice spring feel.

The paper blocks on this page help balance out the photos....I think. On a side note those pictures are over 3 years old. My how my children have grown. *sigh*

Next time you are looking for that perfect template for your photos make sure you visualize a paper in that extra photo spot....it might work out perfectly.
