Scrapbooking | Unity & Space

Week Three in the 2017 Design Your Life 2.0 class (that I'm completing/re-working this year) is all about using unity and space to improve the design of our layouts. 

The first assignment utilizes a center column to group the title, sub-title, three photos and journaling. I actually made a couple of modifications to the digital template, adding a page border and line border around my 12x12 layout about the new job Robbie began in early 2019.

I followed the same format for a paper layout, this time doubling the main section to include more photos and using patterned paper in the place of journaling.

The second assignment template also holds three photos, this time as a strip across the bottom third of the page. I had FUN using the digital template to record the visit we had from one of my first cousins in late May.

For my paper layout using this template, I substituted my friend Ellyn's thank you card for one of the photos and added three chipboard embellishments.

I'm so glad I decided to work back through and complete this class. So far, I've created a digital layout and a paper layout for each of the assignments and am enjoying Cathy's teaching on design principles. (And did you notice that I'm working on filling in some gaps in our 2013 albums now that the 2012 scrapbooks are complete?)


  1. When I completed this class (one of my favorites) I don't recall any digital templates. I love the fact that you've done two for each layout!

  2. Cathy's DYL class is still one of my favourites - you've produced some lovely pages!


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