Well, today's the perfect day to share this layout we made at the 4x4 Scrapbooking Class last week! I designed these Valentine pages with a little bit of Pool Party light aqua blue added in, however, in case my scrapbookers would rather use the spread for a different occasion. The "love" headline is always appropriate, after all!
This layout packs in a lot of pics--six small ones and four large vertical ones. If you don't need all that space for photos, you can use a couple of the small spots or one of the large photo mats as a journaling box.

As we made our photo box strips using the Stitched Shapes Framelits squares and 2.75 x 8.5 -inch wide pieces of Basic Gray cardstock, we were careful to save the die-cuts and use them on one of our other spreads. That way there was no waste and it was super easy to pull together two other team colors to finish a second set of fun and useful pages. This one had a sporty stars theme.
