Hello everyone; welcome back for another dose of double page inspiration this week! I can’t say how excited I was when Tina tossed the idea of having an entire week dedicated to double page inspiration here on the My Mind’s Eye blog. I can never get enough inspiration for “Doublers.”
Supplies: Collectable – Remarkable: “Handsome” Charming Paper, “Day” Dates Paper, “Day” Daily Paper, “Authentic Die-Cut Chipboard Stickers, “Handsome” Enamel Dots, “Smile” Label Stickers; Collectable – Notable: “Wonder” Dream Paper, “Cute” Petite Paper; Find Your Wings and Fly “Sky’s the Limit” 6x6 Designer Paper pad; Decorative Tape; Indie Chic Twine; Other: Date stamp, ink, alphabet stickers, eyelet, photo corners, notebook border punch.
Today, my layout features the bold colors of my beloved Collectable Collection. Don’t get me wrong, I love the new collections that are arriving in stores, but there is just something about Collectable that will always hold a special spot in my heart. I knew I needed to do one more layout featuring it.
You guys will recognize these pictures. I used them in my latest Anatomy of a Double Page Layout using 4x6 photos. Like I have said before, I like to keep separate albums for each of my children. I hope I am not the only crazy one out there that chooses to do this! This time, I switched up my sizes and went with 3.5x5 and 3x4 photos.
I kicked off my design by grouping the photos by category. I had pictures from the Fourth of July, the beach, and the playground. To set each group off from one another, I went with a color block background to give each event its own platform to stand on.
The burst shapes from the Remarkable Chipboard Stickers were just too perfect to pass up as fireworks. I added some stitched swirls to draw the eye across the page and also tie the different color blocks together. enamel dots added that little extra something giving the fireworks added dimension, shape, and texture.
For the title, I went super easy. The various journal card pattern papers are by far my favorite flat accessory to any of my pages. I dressed this one up with an eyelet and twine to create a tag. Using tiny alphabet stickers, I was able to pull off a custom title, “The Best Holiday Week Ever.”
So, there it is your second dose of Double Inspiration. I hope you have and will continue to be inspired by the My Mind’s Eye Team as we bring you this awesome week of inspiration. Thank you for stopping by today, and we will see you back here tomorrow!
