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.

I’ve added a couple of close ups of the two layouts below. Thanks for reading!

New Silhouette Cameo!

Hello There, I upgraded from my silhouette portrait which was brought for me several years ago to make wedding invites for a second hand cameo so I can finally cut on 12×12.

I created my own little cut file using a heart which I filled the page with, then removed some and created a half cut print for different sections. I used more vintagey colours and browns to match the brown elements in the photo.

I created a ‘few’ layers paper under the photo which were scraps from a few lines and glitter washi tape, which was a bargain at 3 for £1 at poundland, then I mounted it on a foam sheet to give it some dimension off the busy page.

I like how this page turned out and I got to have a quick play with my machine. I had forgotten how sticky the new sticky sheets off, boy, did it take me a LONG time to remove that paper from the backing! Be warned.

Thank you for reading 🙂
