I have a lot of 3×4 photos sitting in an envelope, waiting to be made into layouts… but sometimes it’s hard to turn a single 3×4 photo into a big 9×12 or 12×12 traditional layout. I recently found a whole bunch of 6×8 Becky Higgins divided page protectors in one of my cupboards, and realised that I could turn some of those leftover 3×4 photos into 6×8 pocket page layouts!
This was really fun to put together! I loved putting together all these embellishments and textures on a smaller scale, and using the pockets meant I didn’t have to think too much about the specific placement of the different elements of the layout. The smaller page also meant that the photo stands out a little more as it takes up more space than on a normal 9×12 or 12×12 layout.
I used a lot of stickers and washi tape to embellish everything, and kept to the colour scheme from the photo itself to create a cohesive page.
I loved the process of making this layout, and I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to try this out! I’ll definitely be doing more of these 6×8 pocket page layouts in the future!
