I’m back up on the blog today sharing another 8.5×11 layout, but this time its a double pager! I can’t tell you how long it’s been since I have done a double page layout, but I had lots of photos and only a little space. The bonus of spreading out across two pages is that I have been able to use two cut files! I have used the Spring Garden Bed and the Bundle of Joy files on these pages.
I used the Spring Garden Bed cut file on the left side of my page, and cut it almost as wide as my page using white cardstock. I backed each section with pretty summery floral colours, and popped the whole thing up on foam tape. I did find this file a bit fiddly to back, particularly as I had cut it for the smaller format page, so there are few bumps and bruises from me working my way around the file, but I’m ok with that.
I used the stork from the Bundle of Joy cut file of the right side of the page, which leaves me with the title of this file to use on another page (bonus!). I backed the stork using patterned paper, and tucked it up in the corner of my layout as a cute little feature.
I have drawn my inspiration for these layouts from the Case File no. 373 challenge from CSI challenge blog, pulling the colour and floral elements, and also the feeling of bright white space.
I love the way these pages have come together. I am really enjoying documenting in this smaller size and all the opportunities that this opens up!
Thanks for stopping by today!
