It happens. All of our photos and elements have been placed and we are left with little spaces to fill. What do we put in those spaces? Here are 10 things that are great to fill up that space.
Yes, it's simple and obvious, but sometimes the eye needs places to rest while looking at the page and cardstock can be the perfect solution on a busy page.
"Canyonlands" by Paije - Pattern #202
2. Patterned Paper
"Loose Tooth" by Tami Potter - Pattern #237
Create your own patterned paper with cardstock and rubber stamps.
"Winter Bride" by Paije - Similar to Pattern #116
4. Embossed Paper

"Sadie" by Paije - Pattern #197

7. Extend the Space
The layout may call for two spaces, but if you look at this layout, Paije took one element, her torn paper design, and split it to cover the two spaces.
You could try the same with a photo or patterned paper, as well.
"Tiger Trek" by Paije - Pattern #202
"Teton" by Paije - Pattern #193
Try cutting detail photos into those small spaces. Or, search through your leftover photos or scraps and see what you can come up with. The results may surprise you.
9. 1x2 Dies
"Adventures with Kittens" by Tami Potter - Pattern #197
10. Titles and Journaling
"Let Him Eat Cake" by Tami Potter - Pattern #356
Spread out a title around the page, like Tami did on this layout. Or, use the 1x2 spaces to add journaling, the year, a name or other details.
