One into two

Hi Susan here…
I have to be blunt I am not the greatest fan on big chipboard pieces … they really don’t suit my style of scrapping at all… I find they tend to dominate my pages and draw the attention away from the photo… SO… this week i have decided to challenge myself … and prove to those of you who are of the same opinion as myself about larger chipboard that it can really work well with a little alteration… well not alteration in the tradition sense… more trimming.
For my 2 layouts here I have used the same paper range (a 6”x6” pad actually), photos from the same day and one piece of chipboard… to create these 2 very different layouts.
The WOW chipboard piece I have used is the ‘Cog border C1202’ which in its unaltered state is 12” long… I have trimmed it down into 2 pieces …so I hope it has given you food for thought as it is very effective on white space layouts and great value for money to use it this way too.. which is always a good thing.IMG_8536IMG_8537IMG_8538IMG_8539
On “Grandads tracks” I have also used ‘MINI BUTTERFLY PACK C1052’…
