Flip Through Family Ties: 8×8 Scrapbook Layout To Add To Your Heritage Album

Fact: 8×8 layouts and albums are smaller than their 12×12 counterparts… but that doesn’t mean you can’t pack a whole lot of photos, memories, stories and more within their great-by-great size! See the proof for yourself with this 8×8 scrapbook layout that will be a perfect complement to your family’s heritage album, as it uses the Our Moments collection to set the stunning, sentimental scene.
