Simple School Picture Layout

I love seeing my children change each year in their school pictures. While I’d love to have the years of pictures on the wall, it’s nice to have them in our scrapbooks as well. Here’s a 12 x 12 layout that works for just one picture….

School Days Layout from Amber Lawrence

  • Basis White12 x 12 cardstock
  • 5 strips of coordinating patterned paper, random widths and lengths
  • Chipboard embellishments
  • A favorite adhesive
  • One picture
  • Patterned paper mat (sized ¼” larger in width and height than the picture)
Mat your picture with the coordinating patterned paper and set aside.
On the Basis 12 x 12 white cardstock, randomly lay out the strips of patterned paper in the order you like best.  Adhere them down.
 I staggered my strips on one side and then trimmed them all to line up with the cardstock on the other edge.
 Place down your matted picture and add the embellishments.
You have a simple yet stylish look for a single picture layout!
