Using a Favorite Page Design Twice

Have you ever had so much fun creating a page that you wouldn’t mind making it again? Well, I say, go for it!

For example, last fall I submitted the following page to Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine. They liked the page, but asked if I could recreate it in a two-page format for their readers. I did exactly that, with different photos, and now I have two pages finished in my albums.

SCHOOL DAYS

And here is quick snapshot of the two-pager …

The photos are from different years, so they won’t be right next to each other in our albums. I’m willing to bet that someone looking through our albums, including my kids and husband, will be none the wiser! It feels great to “kill two birds with one stone,” so to speak, and complete two great layouts for our books.

Have you tried this approach on any of your pages? This same thought process would also be a great way to convert one page sketches to two-page sketches when you are looking for inspiration.

Give it a go and let me know what you think!

Have a great week!

Queen & Company: ZOO Layout

Hello! I’m back again today with another layout using the adorable products from Queen & Company!
We were amazed at the beauty of the St. Louis Zoo when we visited as a family a few years ago. I was so mesmerized by the sights that I ended up only taking two photos!
Never fear! I was still able to scrapbook a page about our fun day by turning those two photos into letters for the title on this next page.

I used my die cut machine to cut the letter “Z” from the orange chevron paper of the Picture Perfect Mat Stack, and then wrapped it with a length of green twine. Next, I cut my photos into circles using the Circle Die Set and papers from Picture Perfect and Flirty Florals.
To add a jungle feel, I used the Stampin’ Up Festive Flower Builder Punch to punch leaves from the dark green Around the Park paper, scattering them here and there.

I filled the letters with all kinds of fun things: Donut Toppings, Diamond Topping, Sequin Sprinkles, and blue and green stars from the Fimo Fun Topping.

My journaling about the day was placed below the title and then I decorated the top and bottom of the page with Green Stripe Trendy Tape, skinny glitter tape, Polka Blue Trendy Tape, and a few orange buttons. White pinwheels and blue petite posies add a bit more detail to the top and bottom corners of the page.

Thanks to the Circle Die Set, I was able to scrapbook this fun day even though I only had two photos to show for it!

Layout: Stunning

Sometimes I hold off on scrapbooking certain pictures because I just haven’t found products that “feel” like the day or the memory that I am trying to scrap. Have you ever done that?

These are pictures of my daughter dressed up for the Valentine’s Day High School dance last year. The lace dress with the satin ribbon was just so HER! When I received the lace paper in the December Felicity Jane “Hello Christmas” kit I just knew where I would put that paper to use first … on this layout, of course! (The papers are still available in the Felicity Jane shop HERE, if you are interested!)

STUNNING

I decided to keep it simple, with a black and white color scheme, allowing the photos to really pop off the page.

My next challenge was finding a way to embellish this page … enter the Remarkable You stamp set by Stampin’ Up!

remarkableyou

I stamped the two larger florals and leaf branch on white cardstock several times, and then fussy-cut them out with detail scissors.

At first, I colored them, but decided they looked better on this page left plain. I LOVE them!!!

For the title, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word “stunning” … a cut file by Karla Dudley (Silhouette Design #58232).

Valentine’s Day Silhouette Projects

Happy Valentine’s Day to you! It’s the day of hugs and kisses and I have a couple of lovey-dovey projects to share with you using my Silhouette Cameo machine.

LOVE FRAME

This first project is just a sweet little home decor item that you can create to brighten up a corner of your home, or as a gift for a friend to display in their home.

I cut out the heart puzzle images on several 6×6 patterned papers from the Carta Bella It’s a Girl collection. I also added an offset white cardstock layer underneath to help them POP a bit. They are adhered to the background paper with thin foam squares.

I then added the script “love” word on top, and adorned the corners with a pretty floral image.

I WHALEY LOVE YOU Gift Box & Card

Isn’t this little whale favor box adorable?!! He was pretty easy to put together. You can find him in the Silhouette Store. I added some hearts on thin wires as his water spout for a Valentine touch.

A sweet little Whale card to accompany him was the perfect touch! I cut the sentiment out of black vinyl to make adhering the sentiment easy-peasy.

He opens up so you can place a yummy treat inside!
