This Pinwheel Style page pattern is one of my favorites because it creates multiple horizontal and vertical spots. You can find several variations of the "pinwheel" through out my scrapbook albums. I'll show them on future posts.
Page Pattern Description: a 4.375 in square is the center of attention on this pinwheel style page. Four 5.5x3.25 inch rectangles (two horizontal and two vertical) plus four 3.25 x 2.125 inch rectangles (also two horizontal and two vertical) surround the center.

Page Pattern Description: A multi-photo border across the top of this page is a great way to show off a collection of of great shots. Below the border a centered focal spot can be used for journaling or for that one special shot. Pattern calls for mosaic cut photos which wrap around two smaller (2.125 x 3.25in) photo spots and a larger (4.375 x 3.25in) photo or journaling spot located just below the central focal spot.

I call patterns with no clear columns or rows, as shown below, "Puzzle Patterns" because they are created by interlocking, or should I say "inter-blocking," squares and rectangles.
Page Pattern Description: 5-7 photo spots create a "puzzle style" page. Use border strips for journaling or embellish with a favorite stamp as shown below.

Note: (Alteration from the pattern shown at top of page.) I let the photo in the bottom right corner bleed off the bottom of the page. This allowed me to keep her elbow in the shot.
Finally Thirteen - by Tami Potter
This is one of my favorite page patterns. In this case I chose to fill the entire page with photos. The 2.125 x 2.125 inch blocks make great embellishment spots. Use them to add a little of your favorite patterned paper or stamp designs. I used the bottom border on the page to add a little hand written title - "Finally 13."
Pattern Description: Up to 8 photos can be used on this 8 block page pattern, or use a combination of photos, patterned paper, and title block to fill the space as shown below. Top layer: one 3.25w x 4.375h, one 4.375w x 2.125h, and one 3.25w x 4.375h blocks. Middle layer: 4.375 x 4.375 square flanked by two 3.25w x 2.125h blocks. Bottom layer: 6.626w x 4.375h block and a 4.375 x 4.375 square.

Tip: How did I cut out all those photos? I used a punch! Creating a page like this is quick and easy using a 1in. punch and a 2.125 square punch.
