Scrapbook Page with a Creative Twist on Blocks

Above is a photo of a scrapbook page that I made quite awhile back, but it's still one of my favorites. I love how the simple design and color scheme really make the picture the main focal point of the layout. Here's how I created this layout:

Begin by cutting an 8 1/2" x 11" photograph down to measure 8" x 8". Mat the photograph on a piece of 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" cream colored cardstock and distress the edges with ink. Wrap a brown grosgrain ribbon around one of the upper and lower corners and adhere the ribbon to the back of the cardstock with Glue Dots.

Cut five pieces of patterned paper into 5" x 5" blocks and distress the edges with chocolate ink. Adhere the patterned paper to the scrapbook page, as shown in the photo above.

Cut two pieces of cardstock, one in brown and one in navy, to measure 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" and attach a brad to each corner. Turn the cardstock at angles, as shown above, and adhere to the scrapbook page. Attach the matted photograph in the center of the blocked page, add some journaling and your layout is complete!

Thanks for looking! Have a blessed day!
