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!

Echo Park Paper: Happy Easter

The sun has been peeking out from time to time and that gives me hope that Spring is just around the corner.

There’s nothing like getting out in the sunshine for a good, old-fashioned Easter Egg Hunt on a warm spring day. I used the Celebrate Spring collection along with elements from the Celebrate Easter collection to record this fun family tradition.

The older cousins have the job of hiding the eggs for the younger cousins. Each child is assigned an egg color, and they are only allowed to collect their color of egg … making it fair for everyone.

I typed my journaling on one of the cut apart cards from the Journal Cards paper, and layered up a couple of stickers to decorate the left side.

The cute turtle sticker peeks out from his hiding place behind the tulip chipboard sticker. Hmmm … what else is hiding there? Could it be an Easter egg? *wink*
jana-eubank-celebrate-spring-two-pager-photo-6-600
For the title, I created another little sticker scene on the right page. I used the grass border sticker to ground the chipboard “Easter” word and tree. I added more Easter eggs “hidden” next to it and then a couple of buzzy bees. The “Happy” word is cut from the Light Pink solid paper using the Happy Easter Word Die Set.

A friendly frog joins the celebration, as he sits on top of the “Eggs” chipboard banner sticker at the bottom of the right page.

I’m willing to bed that you have a set of similar pictures that are waiting to be scrapped in your drawer. Why not pull out the Celebrate Spring and Celebrate Easter collections and get those precious Spring memories scrapped?!

Noel Mignon: Fall

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday this weekend in the USA, I want to take this opportunity to tell all of you how THANKFUL I am for YOU! Thank you for reading my posts, your kinds comments, support, and for inspiring me to keep creating. I love the online scrapbook community! You are all just such lovely people! Thank you for being a part of my life. 😀

Over the next few days I’m working on posting the remainder of the Fall themed projects I have created this year (although, in reality, you might still see a few trickle in here-and-there over the next week) before tackling my holiday crafting.

Today I am up on the Noel Mignon blog with a two-page layout featuring the November All Fall Classic and All Fall Daily Diary kits. I also created a process video that is listed below, if you would like to see how this page came together.

FALL

Here is a closer look at some of the details of the left side of the layout.

I had so much fun fussy-cutting out the leaves from the Pretty Little Studio “Oakley Avenue” vellum paper. They looked so cute scattered at the feet of my forest friends.

I cut the title on my Silhouette Cameo machine using the cut file “Fall by Loni Stevens” (Design #15233) from the Silhouette Design Store. I embossed it using the Woodgrain 5×7 embossing folder by Darice.

And now for the right side of this page spread …

Of course I have to add a little bit of aqua to every page I do! I adore this flair badge from Pretty Little Studio!

And how cute is this little fox from the Echo Park Fall is in the Air collection. I cut him out of the 3×4 cut apart sheet included with the All Fall Daily Diary Kit.

Mr. Hedgie, by Simple Stories, makes his home in the top right corner of the page. I added more leaves, a script word sticker, heart stickers, and a couple of sparkly decorative brads.

Thanks so much for coming by! I hope you leave feeling inspired to create something fun!
