Layout with New York Collection by Darkroom Door

The toughest decision when using the New York Collection is choosing which photos to use, because they are all magnificent!  You can use these on lot of projects, but I think they’re especially great for scrapbooking because how else can you include full scale photos on your pages, in very small sizes?  Look at these minis Darkroom Door has designed of the New York skyline and the bridge:

And how about that gorgeous photo of Central Park?  That’s actually the spot where the kids are sitting with that golden woman… same benches and everything!

I love that on this layout I was able to use four of my own photos plus five of the New York Collection photos.  There’s no way I could have included that much detail on a single page if they were all my own photos.  And some are so classic, they tell a story all on their own:

These are made from thick card, very sturdy and totally alterable. You can sand, ink, paint or punch them. The variety of sizes allows great creative freedom, and they are arranged in both vertical and horizontal formats.

Thanks for the visit!  Be sure to visit the Darkroom Door blog for more ideas.
