One of my favorite parts of a digital scrapbook kit is the frames. Jaime here to share with you some tips and tricks for adding depth to your layout and variety to your pages with all those frames in Meredith’s kits!
I love using frames to anchor my page, and in this example I’ve used it to define a border for journaling. This frame doesn’t even come near a photo!

Another idea is to use frames to create a gallery-wall type of page like Gina (scrappydoo82) did in the layout below using pieces from the kit, Under The Big Top. Each frame is positioned to show off the photo in relation to the whole, very similar to when you hang photos in your home.
This layout by Jennifer (jmljensen) uses one frame to draw immediate attention to the photo. She then builds her cluster around the frame, using the outline as a guide to develop the placement of the elements.
I love this layout by a different Jennifer (redutedaisy) where she uses the frames as part of the cluster with bold shadows that let the photos peek through much like a shadow box. I think this technique will be next on my must try list!
