I have two boys. I make scrapbook pages for them both. Often times, the memory I am preserving is a family outing or something we did as a family so suddenly I need a duplicate page- one for each of them. I have recently come to the conclusion that I don’t like duplicating pages. All of the fun seeps right out of the cracks when I have to make a second copy. So I have been experimenting with different ways to solve this dilemma. So today is one of those attempts.
Last week, I posted the page that I did for my older son, Logan. Today I am sharing the page that I made for my younger son, Gavin. I used the same layout but made a few changes in each area.
I liked the Petals and Paisleys paper so much that I used it again but I featured some of the other designs. The stripes had to stay the main focus. You’ll soon discover that I have a weakness for stripes.
I tried a different styled tree from the Thoughtful Branches bundle.
One of my favorite changes was using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder on the title. It really looks lovely and I think it echoes the leaves of the trees.
Here is Logan’s page:
Can you spot all of the differences?
I think I struck a good balance- I enjoyed using the same layout as last time because it helped me save designing time AND I liked using different elements because it allowed me to use my creative license.
Have a cleverly creative day!
Please leave me a comment below and tell me- if you have more than one kiddo that you scrapbook for, how do you solve the problem of duplicating pages?
