PostSubject: What is your preference?   February 22nd 2011, 12:02

Lately I have found myself feeling very layout challenged. I struggle more on designing my page than what it should take, so I've taken to altering things and making more cards. But I found when I use a smaller scale on a layout - say 8.5x11 , I almost flow better with it. The last few 12x12's I've done I've just felt like it's been a mental drain and I'm not 100% in love with the result. I don't know if the full 12x12 sheet just hinders me because I think I have to fill every inch or I focus too much on creating that visual triangle........but I may have to stick with the smaller size for a while until my mojo comes back full swing.

So what size do you prefer to scrap in and why?

Good question Renee! I always do 12x12 layouts. That's just what I've always done so that's what I keep doing! LOL I need to try 8 1/2 x 11 or other sizes because I love the idea of mixing them all in my albums. I need to try to get out of that 12x12 box. Maybe you've given me the push! I typically don't even think about what size when I get ready to do a layout....I just automatically grab the 12x12!

when i first started scrapping i only did 8.5x11. i couldn't do a 12x12 to save my life...i was totally 12x12 challenged!

i have no idea what happened, but i switched to 12x12 a few years ago .. i think i was challenged to scrap 12x12 and i was determined to do it ... and then i was hooked.

i still enjoy doing 8.5x11 but don't do that size too often. i think i'll challenge myself to do some of that size again soon. thanks for mentioning it! Smile

It depends on the day... I like both sizes and incorporate them in the same album. Mostly 12x12 though. I find that I cannot fit enough stuff on 8.5x11 most of the time!

I do both pretty equally lately. It just depends on which way the wind is blowing I guess!!

i do them all. and i especially adore 12x6. they came out w/that size a few years ago and now i find i'm running out of page protectors that size. but i do all sizes, throw them in a 12x12 3 ring binder and it just rocks.

i love i'm not limited in size from 6x6 to the big one and all in between.
