As stated in the summer 2009 issue, we received so many beautiful and inspiring teen layouts—and we just couldn’t feature them all! So, we decided to create this online gallery of some of our other favourite layouts. We’re sure you’ll love them as much as we did!


pre party  by Kathy Thompson

Kathy conjured up feelings of youthful fun and festivity on this layout about her daughter getting ready for a party. We loved the simplicity of the page, especially when paired with the “glam” of the patterned papers and the other page elements.


besties by Jody Wenke

Clean lines and a simple design keep the layout photo-focused. And what a beautiful photo it is! We loved the successful use of black elements (check out the three black brads, aka “eyes,” that create a visual triangle on the layout) as well as the solitary dimensional bird that pulls your eye in.


by Heather Bowser

This multi-photo layout caught our eye immediately. First, the neutral colour palette is perfect for this “all boy” layout. Second, elements such as the directional arrow, the embossed cardstock, and the die-cut paper, all draws the eye right in. Third, who says you can’t use scallops on a “boy” layout? This layout proves that you most certainly can!


watch old world
by Natalie Devers

We loved this catchy title and the sweet colour palette—youthful and grown-up—all at the same time. An interesting and unique “collage” of page elements keeps the eye on the two sweet photos.


I {heart} having a teenager by Emily Pitts

A cool button border, when paired with “word search” patterned paper and chipboard elements, combined to create this fun and fresh layout about Emily’s daughter, Annie. We loved how Emily matched the colours in the photo with her page elements perfectly!


Your Season Of Change Layout

your season of change  by Becky Olsen

Becky created this beautiful, elegant page about her graduating daughter, Laurel. She added smaller photos along the bottom to really capture the personality of her daughter, and added machine stitching and hand-cut butterflies for detail. The pretty colour palette adds a graceful femininity to the page.
