I pulled out Christmas papers, but soon realized I did not have enough coordinating papers for a double page layout.
Do you ever find yourself in such a situation? I frequently do. I usually throw up my arms run to the nearest store and buy more paper. Not this time. It was getting late and I was not in the mood to battle the holiday crowds. Besides this was the year I was going to use what I have on hand. I also wanted to get in the Christmas spirit., NOW.
So this month I challenged myself.
1 double page spread, 2 sheets of patterned paper and 2 sheets of card stock and a few embellishments.
I cut my patterned paper to 10 x 10. Instead of cutting 2 inch strips, I trimmed the patterned paper into an “L” shape giving me a corner piece to work with.
The red pattered paper was “pieced together” and the pattern was matched in several areas. See if you can find them.
I challenge you to do the same. See if you can make a double page layout with only 2 sheets of patterned paper.
And have yourself a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
