Designer Tip from Connie Prince


All layouts start with a base or background, typically that is a paper from a kit that we’ve downloaded. However, start thinking about your base in a different light. Include a large scenic photo and let that be the anchor for your page. Another idea is to blend a photo into a paper to create your own unique background! In today’s tip, I’ve included a number of examples to get your creative juices flowing!

Scenic photographs paired with smaller photos: 

 Layout created by hclappy using my Winter Walk collection. I love how the entire background is a scenic photograph and then she used the smaller photos to tell the story of trying to get that perfect sunset shot.

Coming in at two different angles:

 Layout created by ollitko using my #2019 October collection.

From the tree canopy to the gorgeous golden ocean waves, the photos and quote paired together make such a magical layout.

Big Pics - Little Pics:

Layout created by kimb using my Sun Kissed collection.

I love the ocean scene combined with the small close up photo of family enjoying the water!

Blend It!

Layout created by sedoux using my #2019 October collection.

I just love big blended photos in the background, too. Here is a great example of that technique using a portrait.

Hopefully this inspires you to try creating your own layout using a photo for your background! It’s a fun technique and a great way to get more of your memories onto a single page.
