10 Things Anna | Traditional Scrapbook Layout


Today I want to share a two-page, 8.5x11 layout that features some products from Studio Calico's new collection called PrintShop!

I have to say that I love it. Great color scheme and fun, graphic prints (stars for the win of course).

Here's a look at my layout:


My layout includes content I blogged about a few weeks back: 10 Things Right Now | Anna.

The left side is a full page photo (8.5x11) with two 3x4 cards adhered on top. The second page pairs pattern paper (from the 12x12 paper pad) with four more 3x4 cards. Two of those I created myself with pattern paper and journaling from the post linked above and the other two are found in this set.

I love that 3x4 cards are not just for Project Life.

And I think I could do a full page photo for just about every layout.


"Hello, love" and "always" are white rub-ons from this set. I'm still a fan of rub ons and would love to see more of them made. And of course I love those little vellum stars.

The "AE" is part of a great transparent alpha:


Love that color scheme.


Some of the 3x4 cards in this collection are die-cut so that you could place something behind them. The arrow and the speech bubble lift up just enough to be able to add a photo or other content underneath.

You can see that a little better here:


Super cute.

    I LOVE this! I have the letters (both sets that I'm seeing you've used) and I just love those see through ones! I wish there were more in the pack! Go Anna Go! ;-)

    Looks great, Ali! I love the use of 3x4 journal cards on a traditional layout, and the enlarged photo, too

    Ali, that's a really great idea. I have so many 8x10 pictures that I have in a separate album, I never thought about doing a double page spread in a scrapbook using them. Sometimes it's the simplest things that turn out the most amazing! Thanks for sharing.
