Hey everyone, it’s Laura Vegas here! I didn’t realize until I was halfway done with this layout that I had created a two page layout, using lots of 3×4” photos and accent cards, for my NSD project last year. It’s how I love to scrap, so I guess it makes sense that you would see this type of design a lot from me.


Supplies: Cardstock – American Crafts; Patterned paper: Simple Stories; Alpha stickers: Jillibean Soup; Mist: Studio Calico; Die cut machine: Silhouette; Font: 2Peas Class Act; Sewing Machine: Singer

If I make a two page layout, you can bet there is going to be a TON of photos on it. I love putting the focus on the photos, telling the entire story with those photos, and if I can get these pages done quickly, than that’s just an extra bonus.


I wanted to scrap these photos of a little golfing adventure we took with the girls several years ago (or 8 years!), and printed out twelve 3×4” photos and one 3×3” photo. I lined up all of my 3×4” photos, along with a few 3×4” project life cards, along the top and bottom of my two page spread. I’m a huge fan of collages and linear pages, so lining up photos and papers is my favorite way to start my pages.


Across the center of the two pages, I added in 4” strips of a more neutral patterned paper, knowing that I would want my title to stand out against it.


I love die cutting my titles, using my Silhouette Cameo, as it allows me the freedom to make my title as big, or as little, as I want. And I also love that it lets me use additional patterned papers, getting more color and patterns onto the page.


The majority of the time, I will also die cut my title pieces from either black or brown cardstock, as well as cutting the pieces from my patterned papers. I like to layer the pieces together, slightly offsetting them, so that it adds a little dimension to my title.


While I do love my embellishments, I often finish layouts and realize that I didn’t even use any actual embellishments on my page. This entire two page layout is made up of photos and patterned paper (and a few alpha stickers), and I love it!

Happy {inter} National Scrapbook Day!
