Progressive Scrapbook Page using Spice Cake DSP

So, yesterday I shared with you the first part of my progressive scrapbook page.  I had created an 8.5” x 11” scrapbook layout and so today I wanted to share how with a few simple touches you can turn that into a 12” x 12” scrapbook page.

You can see how the original 8.5” x 11” page looked here, but pretty much all I did was layer some extra Old Olive grosgrain ribbon on a piece of Spice Cake designer paper so that it would line up with the ribbon on my smaller layout.  Then I added a different pattern of the Spice Cake paper behind one side of the original layout to give some contrast to the page.  Finally, I added some felt letters down the side for my title.  Overall, a pretty simple page; but since I knew I was going to be adding a bunch of pictures to the 2nd page of my layout, I figured simple was good.

I actually started from the same 8.5” x 11” page kit only I flipped it to be landscape instead of portrait orientation.  I still stamped the leaves and flowers from the Day of Gratitude stamp set so that it would tie in with the left page.  Then I added coordinating ribbon to the Spice Cake designer paper.  I loved all my pictures of Nicholas stomping in the puddles, so I trimmed them down so I could lay them out filmstrip-style on the right hand side of the page leaving me just enough room to journal at the bottom of the page.

I had a lot of fun coming up with how to create a progressive scrapbook page using my 8.5” x 11” layouts and turning them into 12" x 12” layouts.   Hopefully these gave you some ideas for different sizes of pages!
