Scrapbook Layout: Big Game Week

The Story: This is the big rivalry week at my alma mater.  Mr. P and I participate in some activities and go back to help the students with the bonfire rally.

Project Life Style: Noticing a pattern?  I was hit hard by Project Life inspiration recently.  You don’t have to do Project Life to use its ideas.  I like that it’s given me a new way to think about displaying a lot of items at once.  Here, I was going to do three rows per page but settled on two when I counted up the number of pictures + ephemera.

Black & White + Color: I can’t believe this worked out so well.  Truly.  It’s like I planned it that way.  Usually I go uniformly one way or the other but the mix really works here.  Expanding my style again!

Trimmed Ephemera: In order for this design to work, I had to be okay trimming down ephemera to fit the space.  I won’t do that all the time but it was no problem here.

Negative Space: What I really like about experimenting with Project Life design is flexing my design muscle when it comes to headlines.  You won’t see anything like this in my previous books.

Previously: I’ve scrapbooked Big Game Week for a few years now, each one of them different: 2003 (still a student), 2004 (layouts here and here) , and 2005 (layouts here and here).

  1. I love the fact that you have so much white space in your designs. It really makes me focus on the well edited selection of photos and ephemera. Very cool.
