Double Page LO with limited supplies

Hey there..
Today Irene and Sam have made some amazing double page layout
with only the following...

4 sheets of patterned paper
1-2 sheets of cardstock
1 sheet of stickers (can be any of the sticker packages)
1 package of embellishments of your choice

Treasure the Moment
Irene Tan
 Note: After this double page layout, there are still some pieces left of the pattern papers and rub-ons. You can use them to create several fast and easy small cards or tags. Clear stamps are very useful when you are scrapping on a budget. Simply just stamped them on some left over pattern papers or cardstocks to instantly create an embellishment for your layouts. or, it could easily be used to create some fast and easy layering by stamping on your layouts.
 Don't you just love the detail? And fussy cutting... woot woot
Also, I asked Irene how she did her inking, cuz it looks so even and smooth,
she said: "I always use a sponge to ink my papers.
Either a Cut n Dry or a simple make-up foundation sponge."
Bo Bunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Dot, Sunrise, Garden, and Cut-Outs/Serenade
Cardstock: Double Dot in Clower Dot
Rub-ons: Serenade
Clear Stamps: Serenade

Good Times and Happy Memories

 Designer tip: When working on a double page layout- work on it as a single 24” x 12” rather than two 12”x 12” page that you put together. This I find makes it so much easier to balance all the elements on my layouts! Cutting up the patterned paper helps to “stretch” the paper. It also enables you to repeat patterns. 

Bo Bunny Supplies used:
Double Dot: Dark Denim Vintage
Patterned Paper: Detour Quotes, Arrows, Boarding Pass
Stickers: Without a map/ Detour
Chipboard: Detour dimensional chipboard

I hope you all are as in love with these layouts as much as me,
and they inspire you to do great things.  Try using this formula
for your next double hitter and let us know how it goes.
