“Zoo Crew” digital layout, by Krista Lund.
The Zoo Crew Collection couldn't have been more perfect for my photos of our family trip to the zoo last Spring Break. I loved mixing in the animal print patterned paper with the bright colors. I loved adding in pops of red in with the other nature colors. Filling my pockets was easy because this collection has it all- borders, journal cards, photo corners...EVERYTHING!!
This Collection provided all the elements to create a really cute title for my pocket page. I don't have a lot of time to scrap so I love it when a kit includes everything I need to complete my layout. There is no need to waste time searching through kits to find all the pieces for my layout.
I love creating Pocket Pages because each little pocket is like designing a mini layout. I layered a tag, sticker and tab on top of my photo to create this "mini layout."
I tied on my journal tag with a piece of ribbon. The tag was too large for this space so I quickly resized it in Photoshop. I added some journaling and was done!

"Bunch of Crazies" digital layout, by Megan Klauer.
It's been a long time coming since the "K" Grandkids had their photos taken together, so I couldn't wait to get a few of them into my album. I of course turned right to the Family Frenzy Collection. I kept the background a basic white, allowing the bright papers and elements to fully pop. The "Bunch of Crazies" was perfect for the goofy picture I just had to include!
I played with shadowing a bit this time and changing up a few of the embellishment colors to create good visual triangles throughout the design.
Creating with the idea of visual triangles in mind is sort of a challenge that I love to take on within an assignment. By arranging photos or elements in a triangle allows our eyes to focus on the layout as a whole instead of being distracted by one single thing. It keeps your eye visually within the design rather than directing it off the page.
Here's an example of what a break down of my layout looks like with just one of the visual triangles.
And here is what the array of visual triangles look like with the whole design put together!
I invite you to take a deeper look into the impact that visual triangles have on your designs. And remember it can be a combination of photos, colors, shapes, numbers, text, etc to help bring it all together; so have some fun with it!
