Books Layout

Here is my last layout from Paige's Pages 15 at Big Picture Classes!
When it came time to make this last of four layouts, I was fresh out of ideas… I’d used them all up on the first three layouts! I asked Chris what I should do and he said I should make something minimalist. Hahaha! I just can’t, I don’t know how. But I decided to start simple – with my cut file called Frames Background. When all else fails I turn to cut files and I try to design them with scrapbookers in mind.
I backed the little photo openings with patterned papers and three little photos of Jane reading a book on THE pink couch. I say “THE” because this very couch was turned into a die cut in Take Me Away a couple years ago. I hadn’t used it yet but had planned to when I took these pictures early last year when we still lived in Germany. Finally, the stars aligned and I got to use it!
Going along with the book theme, I found book stickers and papers throughout my collections and went to town decorating with all things “reading” themed like pencils and coffee mugs and frames like you would see in a little reading nook. The start-to-finish process video can be found over in the class if you're curious to see exactly how this layout came together.
