Good Monday morning scrappers! Today we are going to talk about another creative style of digital scrapbooking. Something I, personally, wouldn’t have really thought about using. Triangles! To me, when I think of how I am going to cut my paper or photo, my brain goes to circle, square, or rectangle. Original, right?! That is why I am the scrapper and not the designer. Never would I have thought of cutting a photo or paper into a triangle.
That being said, I kept seeing triangles pop up more in designs and layouts in the gallery. They looked so cool! That different cut of photo/paper, really made those layouts jump out of the gallery. So, I am going to show you some great examples that I found in the galleries and then some products to help you get started on your layouts with triangles. Here are some of the layouts that grabbed my attention in the galleries.
Sunny Days ahead by DigitalMcScrapper
This is the 1st layout that grabbed my attention. Look at all those triangles!! Such a great way to show off some lovely papers in the kit she chose. Not to mention it is a great backdrop for those adorable photos!

Another beautiful example of lots of triangles for a backdrop. Really making the layout pop and showcasing the great papers! I really like how she used minimal elements and the photo and paper really stands out.
Your triangles do not have to be the focal point of your layout either. They can be just the right touches to add to it. This is a great example of that. These stitched triangles really add to the southwest feel of the layout. They go along great with the geometric shapes on the paper as well.
Here is one for you white space scrappers. Just two elements and a word art. The triangles really draw your eyes to that adorable photo! Not to mention the white background really makes the triangles pop!
So, you can use triangles as a big part of your layout, complimentary additions to your layout, or to draw your eyes to something important on your layout. Don’t limit yourself to that though. If you never thought about using triangles in your scrapping, now is the time! Don’t know where to start? Below are some great products I found in the store to get those layouts started!
We would love to see your layouts with triangles! Make sure to upload those layouts to the gallery and come back and link us up! Now, go get your scrapping on…triangle style!
