Break outside the box with 6×12 scrapping

by | Scrapbooking Ideas | 0 comments

From an outsider’s perspective, one might think that all scrapbooking (paper and digital) is completed exclusively in the 12×12 format. Yes, it is the most popular, but scrapping outside the 12×12 box can unleash your creativity.

Most of us know that 8×8 and 8.5×11 inch pages are around and6x6 albums, 4×6 brag books and other off-sizes make their way into galleries. This post, however, will highlight how 6×12 scrapping can take your work to new heights, all while still fitting in your 12×12 album. You can even buy 6×12 page protectors and albums.

Here are some examples of 6×12 done well:

Ali Edwards scrapped her December Daily this year in 6×12

A hybrid album created by the PrimaDonna endorsed teacher program

A 6×12 the artist framed for hanging, using a quick page by Amy Teets

A hybrid layout the artist created for a “10 goals in 10 years” challenge

A digital 6×12 that rocks the shadowing – looks like paper!

A horizontal 6×12 with fantastic composition, part of the artist’s Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Year project

Great ideas for 6×12:

  • Expand on a layout with a full page of journaling
  • Use as section dividers within a 12×12 album
  • Make this special size the focus of an ABC teaching album
  • Use as a launchboard into hybrid work

Bonus Tip – Place two 6×12 pages on one layout for sending off to your favorite 12×12 printer.
