Back to Basic Scrapbooking

I can't remember the last time I scrapbooked a 12 x 12 layout. It's been at least a year or longer *gasp*. I started out as a 12 x 12 scrapper many, many years ago, and I have forgotten just how much I love it!

I try to keep my layouts simple, and put the focus on the photos. I don't do a ton of journaling, but I always put a date and/or date and location/event. If I feel like journaling, I'll journal on the back. Sometimes I want to tell the story for everyone to read, so I'll journal on the front page. I keep my 12 x12 pages simple and leave all the fun "out of the box creativity" for my mini books.

Here are a few layouts I worked on.


  1. Those pages are adorable. I especially love the second one. Thanks for sharing. You are inspiring me to get back into my scrapbooking. :)

  2. Leslie these are beautiful!

  3. Very cute layouts. Once I started minis I kinda feel overwhelmed with layouts, but one day I will return or I will have to attend MA (minis anonymous).

  4. Lovely pages Leslie! I've always been so intimidated by 12 x 12 layouts...your pages look beautiful and your fotos are very nice...that is such a darling picture of your daugher!
