About the Page
Technique: quick and easy winter layout
Style: Clean and simple
Designer: Paris Dukes

Paris Tip: My favorite time-saving tip is to mat multiple photos on a single piece of paper, rather than matting each one individually. For the page on the left-hand side, I placed three photos of Elise on a piece of plight blue paper, allowing a bit of space between them. I did the same for the two photos on the right-hand page. Its an easy shortcut that looks good too!


How to make Paris double-page spread:

  1. For the right-hand side: The snowflake collage paper is your background (its the last sheet in the book). Place a brad in the center of the large snowflake.
  2. Cut out the snow tag and mat on light blue textured paper. Place a brad to the top of the tag and glue to the page. Loop fibers around the brad in the tag and the brad in the snowflake, tying a knot at the snowflake brad.
  3. Cut out the alphabet tiles to spell skiing and add to page.
  4. Cut the vellum to 8.5x11. Print your journaling onto the vellum by setting your printer to the landscape setting. Tear one long side of the vellum and attach to the right side of the page with three brads.
  5. Mat the photos together on light blue texture paper and add to page.
  6. For the left-hand side: Use the blue collage block paper (the second from the last sheet in the book) as your background. Add a piece of torn blue vellum to the top of the page using three brads.
  7. Cut out the alphabet tiles for the title. Mat the photos on one piece of light blue texture paper. Wrap a group of silver fibers across the bottom of the page, securing the ends on the back with clear tape. Use foam mounting tape to attach the winter definition to the page.
