If you feel intimidated by 12x12 layouts, why not try scrapbooking layouts miniature-style. These are a great alternative and can be easy tucked into a small album or your purse. I created two layouts using 5x5 size cardstock. I then added smaller versions of embellishments and tuitles. These would fit perfect for those school photos or wallet photos. Why not give it a try.
