Recently I made a 2-page spread for Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine! At first I was terrified because I honestly can’t remember the last time I made a 2-page layout… but then I thought of an idea to use both the positive and negative shape of a large heart die cut and the spread came together in a snap!
Here is a quick written how to: Trim 1″ strips from lots and lots of patterned papers (I used my Oh My Heart collection with Pink Paislee) then use scissors to fringe them. Arrange the strips in rainbow order down a white cardstock background. Die cut a heart to use as a template, place it on the back of the layered paper, and carefully trace and cut out the heart from the center. Use the cut out fringed heart as the centerpiece on another white cardstock background. Add machine stitching details to both pages. Print black & white photos and adhere them to the pages. Create the title on the negative page and adhere typed and trimmed journaling onto the positive page. Embellish with die cuts and stickers from Oh My Heart!
This technique would work with pretty much any large shape! I hope that you’ll give it a go!
Do you usually make single or 2-page spreads? I’d love to know! Thanks for stopping by today!
