Scrapbooks: How did you first decide on what size to make your pages when you first started scrapping?

:) I started doing the 12 x 12 because that was the size of the paper that you could get in places like M's.

I chose 12x12 because I thought I would have more room for photos.

I looked at a 12x12 sheet of paper and figured there was no way I could fill it, looked at 6x6 and it was too small, so I went for 8x8...

My first pages were 8 1/2 x 11, but it seemed like everyone was doing 12x12, so that's what I did, and am still doing it.

12X12 because that what was given to me by my sister. She was a CTMH consultant at the time.

I started w/the Creative Memories albums which were just shy of the 12x12 size and I guess it just seemed natural to do the 12x12 when I made the switch.

I started with 8.5"x11" so I could make my own albums and they would fit in the bookcase. Still only doing 8.5"x11"

I started with 12 x 12 because that's what was given too me. Which is fine because that's what I prefer anyway. Whenever I try doing smaller things I feel like I don't have enough room.

I got a bunch of sb papers on clearance at WM (before the craze) and they were 81/2 x 11 double sided.. so that's what I started with. I kept with that size until I found 12 x 12 3 ring binder...love the flexibility of them. Now I do 12x12 and I'm doing my first 8x8 year album of my grandson Keaton.

I was given a 12x12 album and papers for my college graduation so I went with that and that's still what I do. I have made other smaller albums, but they are just not the same...

I started with 8 1/2 X 11 and it didn't give me enough room for photos , so I went to the 12 X 12.
