Double sided cardstock is so versatile and offers loads of options on a single project. This layout features a single sheet of patterned paper using both sides to the maximum and then only adding a small strip of scrap paper. Get to know your products and use them to their full potential to save time and money.

This layout is based on a simple sketch where the patterned paper forms a frame around the photos in the centre. A single sheet of double sided patterned paper was used to create the frame around the photos – the front being the printed colourful side and then back being the stripe. Double sided paper offers so much more opportunity to be creative. The nice thing about double sided paper is that the thinking has already been done for you by the designers. The colours match perfectly and you can simply add plain cardstock.

To pick up on the gold colour in the patterned paper and the prefect pearl splats, I added some gold brads on the left and right edge. The brads are then distressed using a texture hammer for some interesting effects.

To add some interest to the layout I used perfect pearls to add a bit of glamour. Perfect pearls is mixed with a small amount of water and then splattered over the layout. This is not some fancy technique but a simple idea that adds a beautiful element of surprise to a project. Learn about how to create your own splats in our technique article listed below.
