I LOVE double sided paper and if you're like me, you have probably amassed a huge stash of it. In the past I used to buy 2 sheets of every patterned paper, 4 if it was double sided. Now that I am being a little more thrifty, I am buying only the papers I totally LOVE and only one sheet, even if it is double sided. Problem is, sometimes I love both sides of the paper!


This layout uses BOTH sides of one piece of double sided paper. Here's what I used:

  • 1 sheet of double sided paper (white one side, yellow dots on other side)
  • 1 sheet of single sided paper (for the background – I actually used a double sided paper that I only liked one side of)
  • About 15″ ricrac trim
  • Stamps (I used Technique Tuesday)
  • A Couple Buttons
  • Alpha Stickers
  • Diecut shape (this one is from Prima)

Cut two rounded corners off the double sided paper. My cuts are rough and that is okay but if you are really concerned about the cuts being round, trace the edge of a plate and then cut the corners out. The reason I cut these corners off is because they had flowers on them which I did not want on my page.

Trim the cut out pieces until they are smaller than the cutout. Glue ric rac to the back of rounded side of the cutouts. Adhere the center piece of the paper to the background paper. Then add the cutouts. Some of the background paper will peek through.

I added photos, stamps (which I masked), and some sticker letters for a title. We actually used this layout as a sample for this month's book club. We've always got room for one more if you want to join us ;)

Happy Scrapping!
