I won credit to The Shoppe. I was so excited!!!! Now - I am not a professional photographer - but I was still able to find some awesome things. One of the items I got was Summer Breeze. It's an engagement layout. When you go to site's - don't feel limited to what they show you - you can do so much more! I took their awesome layout and created a cute reminder with my daughter:
So after doing this - I realized I really liked seeing my plain images taken to the next level. So I started looking into digital scrapbooking. I played with it before - but that was before I knew photoshop. So - I stumbled upon this site: Jessica Sprague with some amazing layouts - and there are a lot of freebies right now too - I recommend checking it out.
So - this is one of the pages I did.
There are many places you can print 12x12 pages.
Or you can be super simple - I forgot where I got this layout - it was as easy as dropping the picture in! (I totally forgot where I found it - if anyone knows - I'd be happy to link back to them!)
I have started using American Crafts albums - there 12x12 D ring ones:
And these are the inserts:
I like this system - because you can have regular 4x6 pictures - or 12x12 scrapbook pages either printed like above - or using scrapbook papers. And - I can fit almost 500 pictures in an album! It's a great way to keep things organized yet customizable too!
If you know any great place to get digital elements - please share :)
