We are so pleased and a little sad to have one more post from Guest Designer Corrie Jones with our Saturdays collection. We think this collection fit her style and personality perfectly. Here is Corrie with a description of her final project that we think you will enjoy.
Hi all! It is me, Corrie, one last time to show another project I have created with the really awesome Saturday's collection! I cannot believe it went so fast!
I am really a layout girl, so I definitely wanted to create another layout using this incredible collection. I decided to tackle a double page spread. Honestly, double pagers are not my favorite, but they definitely have their place! So I have figured out a way to make double page layouts a lot of fun for me. To start, here is mine.
I had a bunch of pictures of one of my daughters from our beach trip last summer that never got scrapbooked. I decided they all needed to be scrapped fast and a double page spread is the easiest way to do that. More space for more pictures, right?!? But a 12X24 inch canvas is just so much to work with, so when I work on a double page spread I usually take it down to 11X17, so 2 - 8.5X11 inch pages.
Besides the size of a double page spread, the other part that I have struggled with is the matchy-matchiness of them. Instead of having the same background and design, I like to create my double pagers as coordinating, but able to stand alone as well.
See, each side could be its own page! This "technique" really makes it so much easier (and fun!) for me to get multiple photos scrapbooked at once, and I never feel overwhelmed or frustrated with having to decorate so much space!
This Saturdays collection was perfect for these photos too. I knew that even though these unique colors were perfect for adult pages, they really work well for a grungy teen page as well.
For this double page layout I used the Saturday Collage, Pants & Patches, Pattern Play and Well Worn Wood papers. I included the chipboard shapes, decorative edge double sided textured cardstock, the fabric favorites, stick pins, cardstock stickers, tear-out tickets, clear cut shapes and pieces of the medley album kit.
Thanks so much for the opportunity to show some fun projects using this great collection! I hope you have enjoyed it as much as I have!
We have been so amazed by all of Corrie's amazing projects. I get so excited to open the emails from our Biker Chicks, Cycling Team Member and Guest Designers to see their projects and Corrie's emails have certainly been a treat, plus she is just about as sweet as the Georgia Peaches in her home state (bet you haven't heard that before Corrie:)

Also have a wonderful weekend!
