Paper Crafting Tip #45: Create a non-standard-sized scrapbook layout

I usually scrapbook in 12 x 12 size, but I also like to try other sizes for variety.  A few years ago, my husband gave me a Hallmark scrapbook for Mother's Day.  It's a 9 x 12 size and is proving to be very challenging when it comes to designing my layouts.  There isn't as much room as there is on a 12 x 12, yet this size isn't as confining as an 8 1/2 x 11 page can sometimes be.  It's a very interesting size to work with.  Below are layouts from our trip to a dude ranch this past summer.  I was able to fit quite a few photos on each page.  So give it a try!  Create a layout that is a different size for you.  I'd love to see what you come up with.  Who knows?  I might even post it here on my blog.  Happy crafting!
