Pure Genius

I, like many others, am a 12 X 12 scrapper...always have been. There have been times (like when my scanner refuses to allow a perfect stitch because of bulkiness) that I have toyed with the idea of going 8 1/2 X 11. Really, the stress of stitching overwhelms me sometimes. Then I think of all the pros and cons of changing over and somehow the cons always win out.
In perusing the Two Peas Garden this week, I found the most fabulous idea by Lisa McGarvey. She has combined 12 X 12, 8 1/2 X 11 and even 8 X 8 pages into one album! Yes, one album!
Here is the link if you need to see this to believe it.

When I was reading Lisa's opening details, I couldn't for the life of me envision how ridiculous having 3 sizes of pages in one album would look. I mean, really, who would even think of something so silly? But then I scrolled down to the photos and was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. I couldn't believe how stinkin' cool this looks! What an amazing idea! Now Lisa claims this phenomenal idea is the brainchild of Tara Whitney & Emily Falconbridge, but anyway you look at it, these women are genius...pure genius!

I agree-
I love that idea.
I am doing one now like that b/c I have a lot of 12x12's in my AAM album and now I do 8.5x11.
It is fab!
