A Double Pager

Stick It Down have a card sketch, a single page scrapbook sketch and a double page scrapbook sketch each month.  I have designed the sketches for the cards and some of the single page sketches but always shied away from double pages.  However the team is a member or two down and I've given it a whirl to make up the numbers.  Here is the sketch for October...

I am using supplies from my Counterfeit Kit...

And here is what I came up with.

I trimmed down two pockets so I could use the layout of the sketch as is.  I switched the stars to hearts and played fast and loose with the title placement!

H is for Herbert!  Everything painted has been done with Daniel Smith watercolours, everything else was pulled to match.

These hearts are the main feature for me.  A little bit of wisdom - cutting thick watercolour paper with a craft knife is not fun!  But I do like how it all turned out.  You can watch the process here (I edited out all the faffing with the craft knife and watercolour paper... nobody has time to sit through that!!)

So maybe double pagers are not so scary after all?  We'll see if I try another any time soon!  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Laura, Herbert is lovely. He obviously likes his bell.

    Hope you have had a good day. Sue

    1. He's obsessed Sue... he says goodnight to it - I kid you not!!

  2. I thought this looked familiar - I think I liked it on Instagram recently! Very cute! I love the pretty watercolors, and that gorgeous doily with the thread holding a spot for Herbert's initial.

  3. This is fabulous. You have worked magic with those pockets.

  4. What a sweet spread! I love all of your handmade hearts!

  5. Your hand painted water colour papers are just adorable. I love that first photo with your sweet Herbert right there checking out what you'Re up to! I love this spread - really fab. I really want to get more into pocket pages - spreads like this are so inspiring
