Alernatives to 12" x 12" patterned papers

This is one of my layouts using one of the Prima A4 stacks called Melody. The pad has 24 patterned papers/2 pieces per design (48 pieces in all) and has plain as well as patterned papers that match perfectly.
I used one plain and one patterned sheet of paper from the stack and used a corner punch to round the edges as it gives a softer feel to the layout. The co-ordinating paper flowers are from Prima too and are the Essentials 10 floral embellishment pack that matches the papers beautifully.

The sparkle chipboard is from Crate Paper (Brook Collection) as well as the Art brads that I used for some of the flower centres. The other flowers have button centres (a freebie from a magazine). I attached some Bazzill 'Just the Edge' to the bottom of the photograph. The title 'Family' is a rub-on from a pack I had for a while (Delish Designs), as is the black edging around the plain piece of paper.

I just wanted to show that you can use other paper sizes other than 12" x 12" patterned papers to create scrapbook pages. Obviously, you still need the 12" x 12" cardstock as a base but any other paper size can make lovely layouts. The design team have been given that task this month and will be designing using 6" x 6" paper! Watch this space!
