As I promised here is the other half of the fun layout I did the other day. All I have done is invert what I had done in the previous page.
And here is the double page layout together.
When I scrapbook, my layouts are very dependent on what photos I have. I work on sets of photos at a time and then decide on how many photos I place on each page. Sometimes I only have 1 photo on a page and other times I might be able to fit about 4 or 5 photos. I don’t always have the same layout on each page of a double layout, but I will try and have at least one element that links the two pages together. I get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and the facebook pages such as Christine’s Creative Capers, but my layouts always seem to end up being my own creations, which I guess is a good thing as it means that I am working on my own creativity and individuality. I have personally found going to a class where they do one specific layout tends to hinder my own creative style. But everyone is different and it is a matter of finding out your own personal style.
Another aspect I have tried to do with this album is to have elements linking throughout and keep the range of colours to a minimum. For this album I have mainly used the Rugged Baby Additions as well as cloud and yellow cardstock and tried to use different elements to link the whole album together. I have used another addition from Creative Memories (which I will show in another post) as the colours in that addition also worked in really well with the Rugged range. I also have used my Border Maker to have another design feature to link the album together.
I hope this helps explain how I design my layouts
