Scrapbook With Square Photos

It's been a while since I've joined in any scrapbooking challenges, however, after a FUN day of crafting with Mama and my friend Thayer on (inter)National Scrapbook Day and three days at my friend LeAnne's home this week, I have quite a few completed layouts! Several of them fit nicely into Shimelle's weekend and Monday challenges, so watch for several posts over the next few days.

The challenge Shimelle posted on Monday this week was to scrapbook with square photos. The INSPIRATION for my layout was a journaling square from the Bo Bunny Beach Therapy collection.

I added two square photos and another square block with embellishments to create a companion page for this layout from a couple of months ago.

I actually created two layouts using square photos on (inter)National Scrapbook Day, too. (I'm putting together layout kits based on both of these 2-page spreads that will be for sale at Personal Scrapbook soon!) This first one has four square photos on the left page.

This next layout also has four square photos, one across from the focal photo and three across the bottom of the two-page layout.

Have you scrapped with square photos lately?


  1. Yes: I've been taking square photos with my phone and discovering how much I like them.

    I'm sure your page kits will be a great success, based on your lovely samples

  2. Isn't it nice how squares and circles go together, whether in scrapbook elements like on your first and last pages or in the pictures themselves like on your second page. Lovely scrapping, Melissa.

  3. Great layouts. I just ordered Beach Therapy kit and can hardly wait to use it. I love square photo layouts. I use them over and over especially for multiple photo layouts.

  4. I'm always a fan of layouts on grids; love these. Yes, I've used square photos occasionally.

  5. I only take square photos on my phone, I think because I use them for Instagram and that's what works, but I do also like the size so very much xx

  6. I hope your page kits are popular. I've used a couple of square photos, usually phone ones where I don't want to make them too big.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
