Idea 1. Utilize different shades of one color. Make photos pop.
Idea 2. Bring attention to details of a photo. Enlarge photo.
Quite often a 12×12 scrapbook layout will contain just one or two photos. As you sort through your photos and you come across one that you absolutely love, decide what it is about the photo that catches your attention. Is it a person's smile? Is it how your baby curls his toes? Is it the bright pink rubber boots that your little girl is wearing as she stomps into a mud puddle? Or is it a puppy pulling on a ribbon from a present with his teeth?
Idea 3. Stack your photos on your 12×12 scrapbook. It's all in the design.
Idea 4. Enhance photos with flowers. Overlap photos.
Do you tend to mat your photos and leave empty space around them? For a different look, overlap photos with flowers. You might try just a few flowers overlapping one of the corners of a photo, or actually creating a border that goes all the way around a photo. By overlapping, it provides dimension to your photos and helps the photos to blend in to your 12×12 scrapbook layout.
