Two-page Week, Part 2

Two-page Sketch #26

You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the two-page sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.

"Tobin's First Birthday Party" by Noey Hunt
Products used - Patterned papers and stickers: TPC Studios; Letters: American Craft (Thickers), Making Memories (glitter); Tools: Cricut Robotz cartridge

Variation 1: I changed up the photos sizes some. I swapped out two of the horizontal 4x6 photos for another square photo, vertical photo, and small accent photos.

Variation 2: I kept all of the paper arrangements the same, but I dropped many of the embellishment details like stitching because my papers and photos were already busy.

Variation 3: I added a giant robot! For my son's party, I cut out about 10 unique robots as large as I could with 12 x 12 paper and used them to decorate the window at the party. I simply had to squeeze one of these robots onto the scrapbook layout for the party

"We Love a Parade" by Penny Grimsley
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: October Afternoon; Alphabets: Silhouette Die Cutting Machine; Embellishments: October Afternoon, Tim Holtz; Punches: Martha Stewart, Stampin' Up; Ink: Jenni Bowlin; Embroidery Thread: DMC; Fonts: Pacifico, Minnie, Waltograph; Stamp: Unity Stamp Company

Variation #1 - I changed the photo blocks by making them all 4x6.

Variation #2 - I added a border punch on the top and bottom.

Variation #3 - I punched the borders of the patterned paper and then stitched along the edges for emphasis.

Variation #4 - I made a journaling card to hold the journaling.

Variation #5 - I changed the heart to a Mickey Mouse head. The minute I saw this sketch, I saw Mickey Mouse heads instead of hearts!

Variation #6 - I added the tickets to carry out the amusement park theme.

Variation #7 - I swapped the tiny hearts with buttons to reinforce my theme.

LOVE, LOVE the idea of using a large paper piecing along the top, it really opens endless possibilites. I think I might have been all about how to vary the boxes, but probably wouldn't have thought as outside "the box" like you did. Thanks for the inspiration.

Penny, wonderful, inspiring page too.
