hello – Karen here with the third of my projects using the Hide and Seek paper range.
We recently went to stay with our daughter and her partner in Newcastle and as a special treat they had booked for us to have afternoon tea in a cafe called The Running Fox! A perfect photo opp to showcase this lovely paper range.
After our afternoon tea we went for a walk by the river where the ‘boys’ spent a happy afternoon seeing who could skim a stone the furthest, make it hop the most, who could hit a stone with a stick the most times and who could throw a stone to make the biggest splash – more photo ops. As I had so many fabulous photos I decided to make a double page.
When I make double pages I usually lay two pieces of 12 x 12 card side by side and work across them both and slit them apart at the end. I took the Fawn and Bears papers as not only did they have the cute animals on but the perfect titles for our afternoon of fun. I cut .5in from the right of Fawn and .5 from the left of Bears . In then cut them in half horizontally and added the top of the Bears paper to the top of the left piece of card and the top of the Fawn to the top of the right piece of card, leaving a .25 border of white card. I then added the fawn to the bottom of the left card and the bear to the bottom of the right card adding borders from the sticker sheet across the join at the top, middle and bottom.
Next I cut some photo mats from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad – the top ones were 3in x 4in and the bottom ones were 4 in square.
I added two die cut borders from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad across the bottom and a die cut banner, from the Collectables pack across the top and then added my photos to the photo mounts using mounting foam dots.
I then snipped the two pages apart and added ‘Making Memories’ from the Deer paper across the join of the two papers on the left side and ‘Little Moments, Big Memories’ from the Explorer paper across the join of the right side. Next I made two clusters from pieces taken from the Collectables pack and die cuts from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad. I added journaling spots cut from Deer and Explorer papers and used Kaisercraft Gel Pens to write my journaling.
I used little animals from the Collectables pack to add interest to my photos and added a few more sticker borders where there were empty spaces. The sticker sheet has some lovely washie stickers and I used these under my bottom photos.
The final touch was to add some Latte pearls dotted about the page.
I have thoroughly enjoyed using this paper range and from the very moment I saw it I had a smile on my face as it is such a cute collection.
