Kaisercraft Hey Birdie – Double Page Inspiration

May 24, 2010

One of the quickest and easiest ways I find, to create a double page layout is to use a simple symmetrical design.  I tend to take lots of photos at a time and work out what I want to keep/delete  later, and while this helps in selecting the best images, it also means I have more to choose from when telling a particular story.

What is it about you 2 and MUD by Nikki Antonello – Hey Birdie Paper Collection, Paper Pad, Chipboard Alphabet, Cream Grosgrain Ribbon, Black and White Rubons, Rhinestones and Foam Dots.

These photos of Noah and Belle were all printed in your regular 6×4 size.  I kept the two centre portrait  photos that size and cropped the others.  I used my symmetrical design and made one page the mirror image of the other.

And even though it’s not Tuesday…here’s a little extra tip for you.  Have a go at creating your very own, custom made, perfectly co-ordinating patterned ribbon. 

Just chose a Kaisercraft Grosgrain ribbon that co-ordinates with your papers and your favourite rubon and there you have it!  I used the little birdies from the Black and white rubon pack, but could have also chosen some of the beautiful coloured rubons.  This technique would also work well on the new Kaisercraft Organza Ribbon. Why not give it a go!

    Hi there – LOVE the idea about using the rubons on the ribbon – but how “secure” are they? Do you think they would hold up to be using on a BTP project? Did you seal/set them with anything?
    Great pages…

    I have found the rubons to be quite secure, but I guess it depends on how much handling the project is going to get. I gave these a test run first and it took quite some scraping before the image scratched or moved. The only thing I can suggest is to do a little test run first…or alternatively you can also stamp a design on your grosgrain ribbon….also very pretty! Hope that helps :smile:
