6x6 for 12x12

Have you seen the Authentique Free Bird 6x6 Papers? In this layout, I cut the squares that I used as a large photo mat and the banners from 4 different pieces of the Authentique Free Bird Collection. I still have about a half sheet of each piece of paper left after making this layout, so that's pretty economical too. See the complete post about this layout and the 6x6 papers on the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog.

Challenge at Scrapbook {Express}ions Blog

This week's challenge on the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog is to create a layout....any theme, any papers, any products.....then create a card with the scraps and same embellishments used on your layout. You can add other embellishments or papers to your card but it must be obvious you used some of the same products as you did on your layout. This is an easy way to stock up on some cards since you already have coordinating papers and embellishments out on your scrap table.

I first created a layout with the Bo Bunny Et Cetera Collection.

I then used some paper scraps, the same letter stickers, and a heart from the buttons pack to create this card. I used the sketch from Bo Bunny blog's current card challenge (so if you decide to use some Bo Bunny you can also use this sketch and enter your card in their challenge contest...just add it to the linked post).

See all the details of the challenge here.

Top 11 Layouts of 2011

It's that time of the year ago to go through my layouts made in 2011 and pick my favorites. I created more than 150 layouts, so this was not easy narrowing it down to only 11. There are more I would have chosen, but they are out for publication so that helped a little. Here are my favorites, at least at this moment, in no particular order.

I don't do that many two page layouts, but thought I should include a favorite as a bonus here. These layouts are tougher for me to create but they do work well for vacation photos where I have a lot of photos of one place or day. I love the way this one came together.
