Double-Page Layout by Audrey Mutschall

Thursday, May 26, 2022

Hi everyone! Audrey Mutschall here today with a new layout featuring Paige's cut files and a fun double-page layout! Both of these layouts can stand alone, but I created them to coordinate with one another using photos from the same occasion and paper and embellishments from Paige's Truly Grateful collection.

The first layout includes one of Paige’s adorable Gingerbread House cut files, which I resized to about 2x4 inches. I backed the cut file with paper from the Truly Grateful collection and created a little scene by cutting hills and a path that lead up to the house. I stitched along the path using a chain link stitch in green variegated embroidery floss (DMC 4050) and outlined the hill using a backstitch. I added Cardstock Stickers (trees and a sun) plus some fussy cut butterflies and a toadstool to complete the scene. Next, I cut a large circle out of white cardstock and placed this over the scene I created. I used the digital Truly Grateful collection to print lots of flowers which I fussy cut and doubled up for extra dimension. I love printing flowers in slightly different sizes and then sticking them together using foam tape - this makes them look fuller and more realistic! Lastly, I tucked my photo into the side of the wreath I created and added a title using a die from the ephemera pack.

My second layout uses three cut files: CastleWaves Border, and a Kite. I resized the Castle to about six inches, cut it from white cardstock, and backed it with paper from the Truly Grateful collection. I made another little scene with this page, cutting out hills and paths as well as waves, which I tucked between the hills. I used two different shades of blue from the digital collection of Horizon to create the waves because I liked the contrast provided by the light and dark patterns. I placed everything onto a pink/purple ombre background paper from the Whimsical collection and stitched along the borders of the hills and paths. I cut out clouds, stitched around the edges, added them to the sky, and then embellished with fussy cut trees, flowers, and a butterfly - all from the digital collection of Truly Grateful. Next, I re-sized Paige’s Kite cut file, cut it out of white cardstock, backed it with paper from Truly Grateful, and placed it beside the castle. I love the whimsical feel this kite adds to the page! Lastly, I added my photo, complete with the sentiment “It’s a Long Story” and a sticker that reads “Stay Golden”, both from the Truly Grateful collection. I tucked a journaling card behind the photo to explain the funny story behind the photo: my daughter went for a scooter ride one day and insisted on taking her backpack. I thought she’d packed herself a snack, but later learned that she’d packed a Mandalorian mask! She stopped midway through her ride, whipped out the mask, and continued on her journey while wearing the mask. I, of course, had to take a few photos of my silly girl!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this inspires you to be creative with double page layouts - they don’t have to match perfectly to coordinate and complement one another!

  1. I'm in awe of your whimsical scenes! They're pure magic and technically so well done! Not that it matters in scrapbooking, but honestly, I notice that on your gorgeous pages. All the sweet details like pink clouds, a kite or butterflies and mushrooms on the lawn are all part of your charm. It's like you see things through your children's eyes. That's really special 💗🌸🌈

  2. The attention to detail is remarkable.
