Brother and Sister Layout

Hi there! 
 brother and sister scrapbook layout project for you today. 
Do you have photos lying around that you meant to scrapbook ages ago but just never got to? 
I hope I'm not the only one that does this! 
I came across this photo of my 2 kids in a box while searching for something else. 
They are 34 and 31 years old now, by the way. 
I realized I had the perfect cardstocks from CutCardStockto finally get my layout done!

I created my page base by matting an 11 1/2 x 11 1/2 piece of Basis White Card Stock with a 12 x 12-inch piece of the Aqua Basis Card Stock. I look for any way to conserve cardstock. So, I cut a 10 x 10-inch square out of the center of the aqua card and used it on top of the white card.

Next, I cut the patterned papers and adhered to the base.

I trimmed my 5 x 7-inch photo slightly, then matted it with the Curious Metallic Cryogen White Card Stock. Next, I cut 2 rectangles of the Curious Metallic Peacock Teal Card Stock. I added these to the base.

Now, all that's left is to add embellishments. I die cut flowers out of the Curious Metallic Cryogen White and inked them to add some color.

For the title words, I used Curious Metallic Cryogen White and flourishes out of the Curious Metallic Peacock Teal Card. I ended up die-cutting three butterflies from the Curious Metallic Pink Quartz Blush Card. Then, I cut these leaves from Curious Metallic Cryogen White.

I added the die-cuts, along with 3 small strips of one of the patterned papers and flat back pearls to finish.

I hope I’ve inspired you with this brother and sister scrapbook layout! If so, please leave a comment below, and we would love for you to connect with us on our Facebook Page.

Hey there!
Today I'm sharing my last post as a DT member for

I have certainly enjoyed my time here
with the other DT members and wanted to say
thanks for allowing me to be part of this amazing team.

I decided I wanted to create an inked background for mainly white die cuts.

The die cuts I've used

Impression Obsession - Dies - Greetings Set

I cut each of the die cuts 3 times for a little stability and dimension.

I made a 5 x 6 1/2 inch white card base and layered
 5 x 6 1/2 inch dark purple card stock
4 7/8 x 6 3/8 inch white card stock
3 7/8 x 5 5/8 inch piece of dark purple card stock
cut the inked panel to 3 3/4 x 5 1/2 inches

All left to do is add the die cuts and anything else you would like for embellishment.
I added 3 enamel dots.

I hope I've provided some inspiration for you to
 play and create with your dies and we'd love for you 
to come and join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog. 
There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.
