It’s the thirtieth of the month, so that means it’s time for a brand new edition of 4×6 Photo Love! This is the final lesson in the year long class. Since it’s the twelfth month of the year, we’re scrapbooking a full dozen 4×6 prints on one scrapbook page – and it’s even a single page layout, if you can believe it!
This month’s idea is super simple: create a stack of photos and attach them to the top of the layout with string, twine or ribbon. With double-sided patterned papers, you can make the stack of photos extra pretty and colourful. I used the Little Black Dress collection from BasicGrey for one layout and a mix of collections from Studio Calico for the second page.
By the way, just for today Two Peas has marked all patterned papers from Studio Calico to 60% off, like the dozen papers I used in my Year in Review layout. Check the sale out here and stock up on 12×12 papers for thirty-four cents and 6×6 paper pads under three dollars. (Your order might qualify for free US shipping too – try code NKFFRL for free shipping on orders of $35 of physical, non-phase out products up till the stroke of the new year.)
Depending on how you prefer things in your album, the loose mini pages can stay inside the page protector or you can attach them so they are on the outside of the page protector with just a little tweaking. Punch the hole through the page protector as well as the layout, staple or sew through the page protector, or just cut part of the page protector away. You can also cut extra page protectors to size to fit all the photo layers. Stitch them or close the edges with pretty washi tape.

This month I’m joined by special guest Leah Farquharson with her take on this design principle. Leah added border punches to the mix for a beautifully detailed

Now it’s your turn…
Every month, there are two ways to win a prize for participating in 4×6 Photo Love! The first is at Two Peas: create your page and upload it to the gallery. Be sure to tick the box for this challenge in step four of the upload process. One participant will win a gift certificate to Two Peas to go shopping for whatever you like. But there’s a second chance to win right here: on this post, leave a comment with a link to your page (in the gallery at Two Peas or on your blog, whatever you prefer) and one of those links will win Two Peas shopping money too! The deadline for both is the 29th of January.
Congratulations to Gaby for winning the draw for last month’s eleven photo class! (Gaby, I need your email address. Can you contact me at shimelle at gmail dot com please?) Will you be next? Just choose twelve 4×6 photos to scrap and follow along with this month’s class prompt.
