Memories Made #30 Scrapbooking Process Video: Family (Diagonal Design)

Welcome to a new month of "Memories Made" videos! This month I'm focusing on: Layout Design Styles!

Layout designs range from grid, to free form, to centered, and more. We'll chat about a few of them this month. In each video I'll discuss one of the design styles and how I approach it. I'll share a few examples of them I've already created, and then I'll share the products I used to create the layout.

This week's memory: Reminding Myself of Something Important

Below are the suggested products for recreating this layout. To help you as you create the page, determine beforehand where the diagonal will fall along your layout. Then place items on the page loosely before adhering them to make sure the diagonal works for you.
