Using Big Photos in Project Life Spreads
Posted on under Hybrid Layouts
Hi Everyone! Jessica here to share my love for adding big photos for big impact in your pocket pages. If I capture a photo that I really love, I like to blow it up big and either crop it apart to fill my pockets or do an insert with the full size photo. I am going to share a spread with you today that uses the later.
The left side of my page is a standard pocket page from Becky Higgins. I did print my lower left photo as a 4×6 and then decided that I wanted it to be two 3×4’s, so I just trimmed it in half to fit the pockets.
For the right side, I went BIG. I got this photo of my 2 favorite guys and just knew I needed it big. I added some word art from the “All About you” collection and then I printed it at 9 inches x 12 inches. After it was printed out, I added some bits and pieces from the “You are Here” collection. I like to print and cut out the elements. Sometimes using my Silhouette, sometimes my trimmer and punches. I just really love to actually move the paper elements around to get the look that I am going for. I love the look of the big photo. It lets the reader know that this photo is important. It is a big part of the story. It matters.
I hope that you will try out a big photo in your next pocket page spread. Be sure to share with me if you do! Thanks for stopping by today.
I am married to my very best friend, Keith. We reside in Colorado and have 3 kiddos (McKenna 13, Riley 12 and Kiefer 5). I started scrapbooking 13 years ago and now do mostly Project Life, with the occasional layout thrown in my Project Life album. I love crafting and DIY projects and filling my home with these projects. I am passionate about preserving our history in a fun and creative way. I feel so blessed to be contributing to such an awesome hobby.
