Huge Scrapbook spread, 44 pics on two pages!!!! Plus my new obsession, color mists!

Wow! I was amazed at how many pics I actually got on this spread! Can you believe there are 44 pics on there????

This was such a fun day!!!
There are so many beautiful things about this page! One of those is my new obsession, color mist! This paper was black with sort of off white newspaper print polka-dots. I used a Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels called S.W.A.K. I love the kinda vintage-y faded elegance it added! Oh and the Glimmer Mist has the slightest little shimmer to it! LOVE!
I love this little stamp at the bottom! Its called “Adore” from Close to My Heart. The sweet butterfly is in the Just Blooms Flutter assortment from Close to My Heart. The mat is from the Carolina Breeze collection by Teresa Collins.
This page just gives me so much happiness!!! I took two Color Magic Memory File Folders by Heidi Swapp and stitched them together at the spine. Then I glued the back “leaf” of the folders onto my scrapbook page. The great thing about these folders is that they are white with a resist pattern that shows up when you use ink or mist or paint on them!
This hexagon pattern reminded me of geometry and architectural drawings. When I saw this pic with a the cool building in the background that any architect would be proud of, I thought they were meant for each other. The soft pinks in the photo are reflected with the S.W.A.K. Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. The Mat behind the photo is the same as on the left page, from the Carolina Breeze collection by Teresa Collins. This photo is the top of a photo stack.
This is the underneath layer of the photo stack. I also clipped in a mini of the top photo. ( I did not count this photo or any of the other mini’s in my photo total!!!)
This is the first page on the inside of the folder. The only serious complaint that I have about these Color Magic folders is the fact that the resist pattern is only on the outside. This inside page on the left is just white. Kinda boring. I misted it. It’s a little better, but I would love it to have a pattern as well.
This little sticker by Bo Bunny in my embellishment cluster is so sweet! It describes Jerad and me so well!!!
I totally glammed up the color resist pattern on this folder by adding some little rhinestone bling to really make it shine!
This is the second layer in the photo stack. I love these photos with the cool sunlight filter on them!
The last layer of the photo stack is lifted to reveal a rub on with a flower stack. Another thing about the folder is that since you are going to look at both sides, you cannot really ad a brad. I used the brad to connect the layers of the flower and then hot glued them to the page.
This is the middle of the folder stack. It kinda got busy! There is so much going on here, but I still like it. Oh, and the photo stack on the left side is made with a cut up wedding invitation as photo mats!!!!
This epoxy embellishment is so beautiful!
Another sweet epoxy embellishment.
Notice how the trim on the side works with, not against the little pink pearls. This trim is from the Carolina Breeze collection by Teresa Collins. Teresa Collins is seriously the most amazing scrapbook supplies designer ever!
And here is the bottom layer of that photo stack. Again the pearls stand alone, but when the top layers pull down, they all work together.
The bottom layer also has a color version of the black and white mini in the middle of the folder. (I didn’t count the B & W in my photo total, since technically it is a mini of the color 4 x 6!)
This is the right photo stack, first layer lifted.
We were walking around downtown for our photo shoot. These pics are from when we got lost. Don’t know how we did that, we must have been nervous, lol!
This is the bottom layer of the photo stack. I love black and whites!
Okay,  another page of the folder is turned and this is the final section. I love how this turned out. I usually put my fav pics on the top of the photo stacks and these two work well together. My husband said this section was “simpler but not”. I think he was referring to the fact that I really clustered the embellishments and left a lot of clean space.
The left side has an epoxy sticker with the words “Love is patient, love is kind.” I thought that fit these pics well, because we walked a lot, but I heard no complaints, not even from pregnant A! We have the best friends ever! Another thing to notice about these embellishments is that they layer well, but the bottom layers stand alone. That is good to remember so that as you lift the layers of the photo stack, the cluster still looks nice.
This is the second layer. I love the photo corner from the World Traveler collection by Teresa Collins.
This is the third layer. Notice how the little pennants are actually tabs to lift the pages with!
I thought these two photos looked cute together! I try to keep in mind which photos will be showing with each other in the photo stack layers.
The final layer.
I had so much fun cutting and adorning these pennants. A couple of things I have learned about tabs is it’s usually best to use a double sided paper and the thicker papers work better since they will be handled a lot.
This is the right side. I love those crisp B & W’s!
Again it important to keep in mind how the embellishments will layer in with your photo stack. I love these flowers from the Just Blooms Petals assortment by Close to My Heart. They are white and have a sort of raised pattern on them which you can brush across an ink pad and have a nice touch of color in them!
Notice how even without the top layer and the flowers attached to it that this embellishment cluster still looks nice.
I used more of the same paper from Teresa Collins to mat these photos with. I think it’s important that every thing in the folder kind of flow and coordinate. I loved both sides of this paper too, so I decided to show the polka dot side as well.
Notice how the little pennant, even though it’s the only one left still looks like it belongs here.
Again, thicker papers are going to work better for these. I love the Teresa Collins brand for that. Her paper is really thick!!! This pennant tab was made from a border strip from the Carolina Breeze collection by Teresa Collins.
The last layer. And a still beautiful embellishment cluster! Those beautiful brads are from the Filigree Charms assortment by Close to my heart.

Again, I loved making this double page spread. I also loved sharing it with you. Now go get crafty!
