Sometimes choosing from a lot of really great-looking products can make it hard to decide what to put on your page. Other times we just have no ideas to start with. One of the reasons I enjoy employing design principles so much is that it helps me make quicker decisions.
Actually, it helps me make decisions in general! For the Swingset layout below I used the principle of repetition to help me decide between different products I loved! For the Atlantis layout, repetition was the key principle for the entire design and it helped me decide on every single product I used! I used repetition in two different ways for these layouts.
The best part, though, is how repetition unifies your page so it feels whole and complete, and in this episode I’ll share with you ways to do it without becoming boring.

Scrapbook Layouts That Use Repetition
Ready to see some examples? Here are the layouts I used in the episode to demonstrate…
Swingsets & Slides
To see a larger version so you can read the journaling, please click on the layout, click on the Actions menu > View All Sizes.
The Glitz Design Hoopla Polka Dot paper is a current fave and it’s on clearance! Unfortunately, I can only find the Jenni Bowlin Studio buttons in red and black, but not orange. I do love red, though!!
Digi: The Then & Now stamps came with Ali Edwards’s Yesterday & Today class at Big Picture Classes. I designed the photo header for the bottom section of the journaling myself.
