I love this size!! I find it so much easier to come up with ideas when using this size.. I think I'm going to be an 8.5x11er for a while.

I'm thinking about venturing into the world of 8.5 x 11... I REALLY like how the horizonal LO's looks in this size. I might just have to purchase an album as an excuse to scrap in this size.

I decided that if I ever got to where I can scrap just one picture that I will do the 8.5 x 11 also. I also like the look of the vertical layout.

im usually a multi photo scrapper, and am finding it easy to adapt that to 8.5x11

I'm not a huge fan of working with the rectangle pages myself, but I do love to ocasionally do an 8x8 album. I'm glad you found out that you like it--that's the good thing about experimenting--sometimes you find something new!

Try 8x8 - I went to 8x8 and found it so freeing!!! Having less space to work with I can be so much more creative.

That is all I use for my scrapbooking. Except for the really big 12x15 albums for my heritage collection--too many big pieces of memorabilia for an 8.5x11.

Working on 8,5 x 11 is just awesome!!! I don't do anything else. 12 x 12 frightens me

I love 8.5x11 too...every once in a while I do an album that way... I just bought my first 11x8.5...I'm so excited... I LOVE the look of the layouts that are that way!

I scrap almost exclusively in 2-pg 8.5x11 layouts. I have fun with the occasional square layout but since I am more wedded to 2-pg layouts than I am to the aspect ratio of my layouts, I find it easier to fill 2 8.5x11 pages than 2 12x12 pages. I did a couple of 8x8 albums but I found those pages to be too small to do more than 1 photo per page. I'm pretty sure I'll do 8x8 if I ever want to do a whole album of 1-photo layouts.

I've always done 8.5x11. They are big enough to give you room to be creative,yet not so big that you have to rent a space to take them out to look at them.

Oh thanks for showing/posting these albums. I scrapbook "my" babies from work...and I always use the 8.5 X 11 for them...cause I just don't get that many pics from most families...but I want them each to have a very special page in my books. So this is an EXCELLENT size for that.

I've been thinking about doing 8.5 x 11, but I've been kinda scared to since I've only done square before. I don't like 12 x 12- too big! Actually, Page Maps has a lot of great sketches for 8.5 x 11. I often find myself looking for a square sketch, but I keep finding myself drawn to the rectangles... must be a sign!
