I have been making this crazy fold out page thing with my Creative Memories Album because I had so many photos when my youngest grand daughter turned one. The kids (the adult ones) did this whole photo shoot thing amid gorgeous scenery to include mountains and babbling brooks. Needless to say, I had a ton of photos because I printed them all! Which is actually an okay thing because to achieve my folding 12X12 pages I had to complete 10 layouts to assemble it and make it work. (If you want to see what I am talking about and use Creative Memories albums, leave me a comment below and I will post about this really cool technique!) So here is one of the five sets double sided layouts I did:
Don't these look fun? My cardstock and scrapbook accent paper is by Recollections. The cute border punching on both pages was using a Fiskars Border Punch. (I am a Fiskateer and have the scissors to prove it, are you?!?) My chipboard embellishments are by 3 Birds, the little butterflies are Little B, and the florals are K&Company (I think!). My big butterfly was cut using a Cottage Cutz die and then I added some rhinestones from my stash. The journaling spot was from Anna Griffin's Totally Tags (love them!) and I matted all my photos using Perfect Layers. I cut my arrow from my Cricut Explore and I cut my banner embellishment from my WRMK Banner Punch Board. And last, but surly not least, the glitter stripe on the second page was created putting down a line of 1/4" Scor Tape and removing the liner and sprinkling some gorgeous purple glitter on it and burnishing it down with my finger so I have some beautiful sparkle. I sure so love everything that blings!
I hope you enjoyed my layouts! Please feel free to leave me a comment below.
