seeing double

Just a quick post...we've got builders in and are living in chaos at the moment...but I thought a quick foray into blogland might take my mind off the dust!!!

I have been making a lot of double layouts recently - mainly because I take far too many photos and I am hopeless at narrowing my selection down to just two or three! I also like to have a bit of space around my photos and hate to cover up too much patterned paper!
This sports day layout was inspired by a fantastic page by Melissa Inman (found on p163 of '365 Days of Scrapbooking Ideas'). I've created a sketch from it which can be found here if you'd like to have a go. 

Supplies: Paper and Cardstock - We R Memory Keepers, Creative Memories; Stickers - doodlebug; Embellishments - We R Memory Keepers; dymo labeller; journaling stamps

And this layout has been lurking in my 'Ongoing projects' box (aka 'haven't got round to finishing' box) for far too long. But I have finally added my finishing touches and I love these photos of the girls in Portugal - they don't always look that sweet! I love the Basic Grey paper and much so that I inadvertently bought the same pack of embellishments twice. I guess there are worse mistakes to make:)

Supplies: Paper and Cardstock - Basic Grey, K & Co, Creative Memories; Stickers - Basic Grey; Embellishments - Basic Grey


  1. Visiting from BFS!

    Beautiful layouts! Love how you were able to include so many photos on the first one, yet it still looks "clean and simple."

  2. also here via BFS. Gorgeous LOs.

  3. Also here via BFS, loving the layouts - so rare to find double page inspiration these days!

  4. Love the way you have printed them with the borders. May lift that idea :0)

  5. Thanks for all your comments:)
    Actually Jo I didn't print the borders - I just mounted the photos onto one piece of cream paper - but the effect is the same as printing a collage with borders (I might try that next!!)

  6. Nice layouts! Thanks for sharing, and I hope your home improvement project is a smashing success!
