I'm on the CutCardStock Creative Blog with a
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.
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.
