Here is a two page layout for Christmas that is also 8X8. Sometimes I find this layout size the easiest and quickest to do, although the 12X12 pages hold more pictures. If I need to do a book in a hurry for someone, I will do the smaller pages, plus the smaller size books are easier to store too. I find the journaling on the pages to be the most difficult part of the scrapbooking process for me. I just don't seem to take the time to that when I do the pages and so I have to eventually dedicate time to go back and do that so the book is completely finished.
I have been stamping since 2004 and scrapbooking since 2003. I finally became a SU Demo in 2009. I have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren to fill my books with and numerous other family and friends to make cards for. I love creating and sharing.
