L/O class for the week

What you will need.
2 sheets of paper
fiber or ribbon
gluestick
pics 1 5x7 3 small
rub ons, stickers, or journaling

Photobucket

Cut a mat for your 5x7 pic the size of 9 x 6 1/2. Then tear the right side as shown. note* I had to change my backround paper cause it did not show up
Photobucket

Place 5x7 photo in center of mat and place the three small photos around it as shown.

Next cut three strips of paper the bottom is 11 3/4 in x 1 1/2 in
The middle should be cut out of white or any solid color 11 1/2 x 3/4
The top will be cut at 11x 1/2
These are just the sizes I used. You can easily just eye up a small med and large piece. Remember when adding the strips put them all to the far right leaving the backround shown on the bottom left.
Add journaling, rub on's, or stickers to the white strip.

Last add a ribbon up the left side of your page. Here is the finished page in a solid backround and pattern one.

that looks great!!! I have to figure out how do that with the soccer pictures (as my 5x7 doesn't have as much blank space as yours so I'd have to lay out the smaller ones differently). Your layout is beautiful! And I really like this style.

I forgot all about the white space! lol I think you could just put the smaller photos out more and if it is a soccer page, instead of the ribbon you could use small soccer ball stickers up the side:)

I actually had more pictures printed today as I decided I want to do something else. Wink but the soccer ribbon intrigues me and might be something I want to work with to do a second page with this design (as they'd be in different books).

I might actually have soccer ribbon, must check.

Gwen that is great! That page should be the example page! Great use of colors and I love the pics you used, they are taken very well!

thanks! I took them when I was participating in the photo board's challenge of the week last month. Smile the main photo is the one I entered (but I didn't win - there's a lot of great talent on that board!)

I kinda followed the directions - I hope you don't mind I had to change it up a little to make it work with the pictures I had. I never got a chance to order the 5x7 and the three small pictures like you suggested (bad girl, I know! :lol:), so I just made do with what I had...but after I got started I realized it was kind of silly to make a page about Mother's Day without pictures of me with Evan and my mom with Evan, so I stuck those in at the bottom as well. Then I had to flip the title box to the other side, because there was too much going on on the right side of the page, so it ended up not being exactly like yours, but I still like it. Thanks for the inspiration!

That is great!!! I love that about a sketch or class how it can be taken so many different ways! Yours counts 100% I love it! Now everyone with 4x6 photos has something to follow! Great job!

LOL, The sad thing is that that is totally like me! Scrap first, think later! I always end up having to fix or re-do something making the LO take twice as long as it needed to. Lol I think I would save time by just planning things out better to begin with!
