New Layout

So I dreamed of this layout last night.  I found the quote on Pinterest last night. (I love that place.)  Then I used the sketch from Let's Scrap.  Then I remembered I had this rainbow paper from a million years ago:)  It all came together.  So I got up early and created this!

I am going to make a companion page to go along with the kids engagement pictures.  The journaling will be on that page.  I need to find more colorful papers
to make their wedding album. 
I am going to to show you a little trick to save paper
that was taught to me a long time ago
from my dear friend Stephanie. This is good
for when you want to layer papers.

I use my Cutterpede and cut the middle out of the paper.

I cut it at 1 inch, but you can cut thinner or thicker depending on the thickness of the boarder.

Then you are left with this frame.  Cut your next piece of paper a bit smaller and save enough space for adhesive.

I used the extra piece for a frame.  You could use it for journaling, fonts, diecuts or save it for later.

Here is what the back of my layout looks like.  It is a bit more flimsy but it is going into an album so it doesn't matter.  This is a good way to make your papers (exspecially those exspensive two sided ones)
go a bit further.

Thanks you SO much! I used your "trick" to cut away beneath the frame of my submission for this week's sketch on Let's Scrap! I was then able to use that piece to cut a mat for my focal photo!

Love your photos, colorful paper and biblical quotation for this amazing layout! Congrats to your son and his wife!

What a great idea! I often do cut out underneath large areas, but I don't believe I've ever cut out one of those frames...love that cutting tool you have...what did you call it? Centipede? Very cool tip...great layout!
