    Default what size do you scrap

    I usually scrap 8.5x11 ( or I flip it and do 11x8.5). I do some 12x12's depending on how many pictures I am using.

    I bought three 4x6 cheapy albums today. They are more like brag books. I am going to start doing those too. I sometimes have just one picture that I really want to get the memory down for, but I dont want to do a whole 8.5x11 of it. I will crop the pics to smaller than 4x6, put down an embellishment and some journaling and call it done. I am REALLY excited about it. I have got probably 2000 pictures sitting here waiting to be scrapped for the kids and this will take a lot of the pressure off.

    hmmm, I always scrap 12x12. I don't like 8.5x11 and I couldn't tell you why! Maybe I should try 4x6 though - that does sounds like fun and quick!

    I always scrap 12X12. I think the paper being a square makes it a little easier for me. lol Angie I like your idea of the albums, you have to post those when you get some done! I want to see! I know I want to do the Project Life http://www.beckyhiggins.com/products/#shop books for my p365 pics. I haven't printed the pics off yet, but I am waiting until I can order some of the Project Life products before I do so.

    I really need to stop buying supplies and stock up on page protectors and albums for my pages that are already done! I think I have atleast 60-70 pages that are stacked next to my desk that don't have a page protector or an album! I still don't own an album for Kylee! Ooops! (Yet, I still scrap her pics! lol)

    lol, I have a bunch of 12x12's not in the albums yet, but only because the albums are on a high shelf and I haven't bothered to climb and get them down. lol

    I think I am going to buy some of the multipocket page protectors just to do here and there. I am not doing project life, but I like the idea of mixing it up and I am not picky about styles being mixed up in my albums.

    Always 12x12, but the beauty of digital is I can print them 8x8 if I want

    Occasionally I have special projects, such as brag book for 1st birthday.

    I've done three 4x6's so far and I love it. It's simple, quick and I get the memories down. These are the three I've done.

    Angie, that is SO COOL! I love that idea! I might need to make one like that for my dad of the kids so he has something to look at when we move to Hawaii in a few months!

    I don't even know lol. I just cropped them as small as they would go without losing any details I wanted in them.
