Happy Tuesday morning everyone! It's Amy here today with a fun little stylistic tutorial on how to use the one sheet from the new Daily Flash - Snapshots collection along with the new 12x12" page Daily Flash page protector sheet that is unlike any other on the market, three different ways!
First off let's take a look at the paper that I'm using. It's called "Compose" and it's made up of 16 3x3" squares, all with different colors, and themes. It's really a perfect piece for getting lots of use in different types of pages with it's variations in fonts and styles.
It also has a beautiful "b" side that makes it easy to set up a second side of your page.
Let's take a look at the page protector. Just as I mentioned, it's a 12x12" overall size, gridded out into 16, 3x3" sqaures. At first look you may think, well, that's a lot to fill up! And that's just what I did in my first sample.
However, I wanted to segment the overall layout so that it was a little easier to "read" than just a ton of photos, or journaling, which to me is a little daunting. So what I did, was segment my page in to vertical columns of color. This gave me a natural placement for my colorful photos, as they then needed to fit in the "correct" color coloumn.
By segmenting my columns into colors, I was also able to then zoom in on some of the images that I was really loving about my photos, to further tell the story of our day, then interspersing those among with the images of the people in my page.
Next up is a page that has a lot of different photos from one singular event, all of equal importance, along with a feature photo.
I pulled out the pieces of my "Compose" paper that had the same colors in them as my photos, along with the fun aqua for a pop of contrast. I then printed my feature photo to 6" w x 9" h and then divided it into 3" squares to fit the inserts. I made that the center of my page and used the remainder of my photos, journaling and decorative inserts around the perimeter to tell the story of getting to the final middle photo.
Last up, is a much more simple approach to using these awesome divders.
For my beach page, I wanted to make sure that the depth of the primary photos was captured so I decided to make them my feature images. I printed them out at 6"x9" (left) and 6"x6" (right) and trimmed them into 3" squares. I used the white 3x3" squares from the "Compose" paper to create a light and airy feel to my page, and also utilized a 3"x4" journaling card that I trimmmed down to 3"x3" to complete my page and add just a touch of blue to my airy layout. Creating a page in this manner makes a clean and simple page with just enough style and page flow to make it interesting and uncomplicated, and fast to create, which we all love!
So, there you have it! Three very different ways and styles of using the new Daily Flash 12x12" page protectors and (primarily) one single sheet of paper! I hope this has inspired you to try different variations in your page protectors and gives you some ideas on how to use the new and fabulous insert sheets from October Afternoon! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super day! ~Amy
