I love Pinterest and I noticed a lot of layouts using Polaroid style photos. So, I jumped on the bandwagon and did this layout.

Designer's Tip:
 
To create a Polaroid style photo mat:
  • Cut your photos to 3 inches wide by 3.125 inches high.
  • To create the white mat (or course it doesn't have to be white!) use 3.5 inches wide and 4.25 inches high.
  • Center your photo so that it is 1/4 inches down from the top.
  • You can use the white portion to write a memo or put in a quote just like you would a real Polaroid photo, and then just embellish!
