Here are examples of how I started...Baby Face is basically done with a template and scissors. I tried to decorate it with marker and stickers, but it really doesn't stand off the page. Christmas one is one of my first attempts with color. I still had a need to cut everything out, but I was doing it to gain space. The idea was to fit as many pics in as possible rather than focusing on a few main pics of the event. The last page here is my first attempt at matting images. Again, I am still cut happy, but they are themed and I am slowly moving toward a better layout.
