Double Pages

Hi There

I must admit I usually make single pages – or a single and a pocket page for more photos but recently I’ve been having a but of fun with double pages.

The first is this page from our wedding album of our parent and grandparents wedding days. We actually included these photos at our wedding as was a lovely idea my mum had. It was great to see how the styles of weddings have changed over the years and include our beloved family. I coordinated the two pages with the colours of yellow, gold, pink and navy and added different element to make them both work as individual but complimentary pages. I rarely buy more than one piece of paper which does make these pages have a different look.

Also I took my Lego obsessed boys to an event in Birmingham last weekend. Needless to say they had a great time, there was even huge Lego pits of different colours to jump into and build, a Lego safari which took a lot of bricks and hours to make. Lego is a big thing in our house anyway, as I’m sure it is for many of you. I ended up using a lot of the Shimelle papers from Starshine, True Stories and Little By Little. I made huge cut file saying Lego and coloured it using distress inks, again the two backgrounds are different but I made them coordinate as well as I could bringing in other colours and papers to help them blend.

Scrap Lift

Hi There,

I’ve not been getting much time to scrapbook and sometimes the easiest thing to do is to find a page you like and copy it! I made this page about our towns painted pebbles and the ones we made to add to the collection.

2017-10-02 17.13.21-1I found this lovely page online with these little squares on the left hand side but cannot find the original that I scrap lifted at all! I used a range of little by little, starshine and scraps from my basket to make a multidimensional layout. I finished it off with stamping, sequins and a cutout title from my silhouette.

I loved making this page as it was very quick and simple using a previous idea – I will link to the maker of the page (it had a title of I like PINK) if I find it!
