double page layout

Who’s ready to kick of the second week of Camp Scrap? Today I’m sharing a layout that I just adore – about my favorite meal experience on the island of Maui. Our final lunch (on the way to the airport) – a great experience at Mama’s fish house.

This was one of those layouts that took me weeks to finish. I knew what I wanted to do exactly, I just kept forgetting about it somehow?! I’m not sure what the issue was, but every time I saw the grey paper + photos I thought about how I needed to finish it.

Such a simple page too. Below you can see how I colored a bit on the Sketchbook paper… love that it was just outlined and waiting for me to add my color…

One of my favorite things to do with a double page layout is to keep it simple, and leave a few spots for play/embellishing. On this page, I made that space along the top left and bottom right.

While my version seemed to take me forever to finish (I just kept getting distracted!) this would be a very simple, fast page to put together! The design is very similar to the sketch I shared last week too – now that I really look at it.

  1. This is such a quintessential May layout; even if I didn’t recognize your family, I’d know it was yours at a glance. Makes me wish I could figure out (and stick to!) a style of my own. I so get what you mean about it taking weeks to finish; I’ve got one of those on my desk right now. I really wish my Muse would come back from wherever she’s got to, so I could get on with it LOL.
    Loving Camp Scrap so far!

  2. hi

    love the layout, you captured the scenery well – we were just there in May and had the best expensive meal ever!!! the photo opportunities there are great – I think I took about 100 photos of our friends, ourselves and the scenery. Wish I could eat there once a week.

  3. All I ever do are 2 page layouts and love this one. Even when I have 1 page sketches, I turn them into 2 page layouts. Thanks for sharing a 2 pager!

  4. I love this layout, especially since I prefer to do two page layouts. I do know what you mean about layouts that do not seem to get finished even when there is nothing difficult about finishing. I have a two pager sitting out that keeps getting moved around, but never finished. I do believe I am over thinking it.

  5. Mama’s Fish House has been a fave since I first discovered it many many years ago; glad you folks liked it!

  6. Wonderful LOs on such a fun day for you all. I really like seeing how after applying the letters for “mama’s” you outlined them in a sketchy style with black pen. It gives the letters movement and causes them to stand out. Also liked the partially colored bold flower stamp. Are the cut out letters run through a crimper or an embossing envelope…like that corrugated look too.

  7. Thanks May for all the fun posts in Camp Scrap. I love reading something new everday on your blog. Today’s LO is so pretty. Love all the colors both in your papers and your photos. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us tomorrow.

  8. I love doing 2 page layouts. I do them mainly. This kit club sounds lovely. It sounds like they have some great products and companies in it.
