thursday...tip/technique on using double sided paper

Today I have a quick tip for those of you who love double sided paper but hate the fact that you can't use both sides on one layout so you end up buying two pieces of the same paper. I know that you are out there somewhere because I'm the same way!

We are going to be working with the background layer. Here is my finished layout.


(for close ups, supply list and my layout write-up, please go to this post)

For this layout, I used a Girl's Paperie double sided paper in a light pink and cream color. I LOVED both sides of it so I decided to use them both in my engagement pictures layout.


I cut out a rectangle using my paper trimmer in the center of the sheet and flipped it over. To hide the seams, I used a sheet of brown cardstock and punched around the page. I sandwiched this between the two layer of the same paper for a finished look.


Here is a picture of my background ready for me to add my pictures and embellies.

I hope that you enjoyed this quick tip!

  7. Not to take away from this tip/tutorial but I was wondering how you made your card boxes? I think that's a great idea because mine are always bulky and that would be a perfect alternative to trying to stuff it into an envie! Thanks!
