We know that many of you LOVE our 6x6 paper pads. We love them, too. I know that sometimes 6x6 pads are synonymous with "cardmaking" but we love using them on our layouts, too!

Tamara says:When I first saw 6x6 pads a few years ago I thought, "Hmm, what can I use these for?". Little did I know how amazing and versatile these pads of paper are. I love using them for mini albums, cards, gift tags, and especially layouts. Since the patterns are a quarter if the size as 12x12 papers, they work really well for small elements on layouts. I also like working with a smaller 6x6 size, much of the cutting is already done for you.
For this layout, I simply cut 4 pieces of paper from the 6x6 pad to 3"x4" pieces and printed 2 photos the same size. The smaller patterns are more subtle and complimented these photos perfectly. I cut the "15" from patterned paper
I added a double row of stitching around the border to frame my page.I then adhered a title, chipboard elements, and letter/word stickers to finish my page.
Happy Photo Bombs to You by Tonya Dirk
Tonya says:For the background of this layout I used 4 full sheets from the 6x6 pad, I then used an extra one in a contrasting pattern to place behind my title.
For an extra little bit of detail I adhered a strip of decorative tape across the word 'bombs' and the fussy cut around the edges with my craft knife. I love the little bit of extra visual interest this gave.
