Allen Americans Game - Double Page Layout Week

This week is double page layout week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces, and each day I am sharing a two page layout inspired by a sketch from the BPC Double Take workshop I took last fall. I pulled out the sketches and several batches of photos recently and created all new layouts inspired by the sketches.

The photos for today's layout are from Pun'kin's Natashia's visit in 2010 when we attended a local ice hockey game.

I included our ticket stubs in the place of one of the photos on the right page and a small game brochure on the left page in lieu of a large title block. I especially like the way the die cut paper works on both sides of this layout.

Have you created any two page layouts lately? Did you start with a sketch or a batch of photos or something else as inspiration?


  1. Love your patriotic colours....and the addition of the tickets.
    I quite often make double page layouts....and it's usually because I have too many photos for one page!

  2. I was thinking the same about the die-cut paper :) I particularly like the way it links the two pages together.

    I haven't done ANY scrapping lately :( But I just ordered a batch of photos and I can feel a burst of creativity coming on...!

  3. I love two page layouts. I usually start with my photos and then look through my templates to see if anything is inspiring me.

    You did a great job with the template and I really like how you included the tickets.

  4. Love the bright colors of this layout, and the inclusion of the tickets worked perfectly! I've made a couple two-page spreads recently and have another one in the works. Two of them started with digital photo templates since I had SO many photos!

  5. I love that you used red, white, and blue. They are my favorite layout colors.

  6. I was really admiring the die cut paper across the two sides when I saw your comment :)

    When I do a DLO I usually start with the story and realize the photos will take too much room. Sometimes I shrink the photos but more often I spread out instead.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
